Improving Quality of Aged Care through Software

September 02, 2016

In its discussion paper titled Let's talk about quality the Australian Government's Aged Care Quality Agency (AACQA) made steps to establish and promote ideas of quality to providers of aged care services. This can have several perceived knock-on effects for your aged care software selection. As a key facilitator of aged care services, your software solution is a serious investment in your ongoing success. 


The Olympics Reminded me Why Aged Care Software Planning is Important

August 25, 2016

Watching the Olympics over the last few weeks acted as a scary reminder of how quickly the years fly by. It does not feel like 16 years ago that the nation was a buzz with the Sydney Olympics and now here we are waving goodbye to Rio. 

So, when I was reading some data this week on population projections, it didn't feel out of place to consider projections for the next twenty-five to fifty years to be relevant for what we are doing today. As reported by The Australian Government Treasury, our population is ageing, predominately because of two key factors. 


How ERP Software Can Make Your Business More Connected

August 19, 2016

At times I feel like the business world is simultaneously becoming more connected and less connected. Technology has revolutionised the business world in numerous ways, such as breaking down geographical and language barriers. This opens up enormous potential for business to be done on a scale unlike any generation before us. However, poor use of technology can also breed habits of anti-socialness which can cause us to miss out on innovation resulting from collaboration.  Remember what it was like to go out for lunch with a group of people and have each other's undivided attention.


The Importance of Aged Care Financial Management Tools

August 17, 2016

Managing finances for an aged care organisation is a tough task. Dealing with funding restrictionschanges to government legislationstaff issues, and general business pressures doesn't exactly lack in the challenge department. 

It is important to understand that improving financial success is not a destination reserved solely for large aged care organisations. 

Essentially, it is the organisations which have strong disciplined management that have a greater likelihood of higher financial performance. 


How ERP Software Helps Decision Makers

July 25, 2016

Making good decisions is undoubtedly a skill that you develop over time. Managing risk, drawing on the knowledge of the right people, resource management, and learning from previous experiences are all elements of a good decision maker. However, arguably one of the most important factors in effective decision making is having timely access to accurate data


Why Mobility is an Important Component of an Effective ERP Software Solution

July 11, 2016

Whether you are on the train, in line at the café, or at the footy, look around and you will see people on their smartphones or tablets. The Deloitte Mobile Consumer Survey 2015 reports that there are approximately fifteen million smartphones in use in Australia, resulting in 440 million daily glances at our devices. 


Is Your Wholesale Distribution Software Holding You Back?

July 07, 2016

Continually improving warehousing practices, adopting better transport solutions, constantly upgrading technology, and developing higher performing teams, are all elements in the mix for those wanting to reach their full potential. I can't think of many more demanding environments than those experienced by the modern day wholesale distributor.


Why Aged Care Software Integration is so Important

June 30, 2016

I feel that terms such as integration and best practice fall victim to being part of a collection of over used business jargon. Unfortunately, when terms like this are thrown around too much we can become numb to instances of legitimate use. Hopefully that hasn’t happened to a level that has you ignoring the importance of aged care software integration, because doing so can have significant impacts. Let me explain why.


It’s Time to Expect More from your ERP Software in Australia

June 28, 2016

I am sure we have all been in a situation where we have heard someone comment: "we've always done it that way." It's a seemingly innocent remark, yet should prick up the ears of a progressive CEO. Even if it is not an expressed element of a company's culture, the smaller, less obvious existence of complacency could still have a detrimental impact on a company's overall performance. "There is a strong tendency to get used to and accept very bad things that would be shocking if seen with fresh eyes."


When Aged Care Software Isn’t Really Aged Care Software

June 16, 2016

For many Australians we have had to make do with what we’ve got on many occasions. Whether it was having our mum cut our hair as a kid, living with lazy housemates, or owning the bomb of a first car, not always having what we’d like is a reality of life. A reality that requires us to make justifications and at times, tough decisions. This is as true for business as it is for your personal life. The performance of you aged care software may very well be one such example.


How inventory management software impacts the customer experience

June 14, 2016

In a game of Family Feud, if the topic was "inventory management software", I wouldn't expect to see "the customer experience" appear in any of the top matching results. We would be more likely to see terms such as "managing minimum and maximum stock levels", "demand forecasting", and "reducing stock-on-hand variances" get the points.


Why your Software Should Comply with Aged Care Legislation

June 12, 2016

When speaking to our customers across independent living, residential aged care and community care organisations, one of the common messages we hear is that they consider changes to aged care legislation to be one of their biggest challenges.

Alongside limited funding and having enough of the right human resources, these components can collectively present significant success barriers to growth.
