Your care home dashboard will show you who is on shift at any time meaning you have a live display of who is in the building.
Punctuality is a huge issue in care home management. The knock-on effect of shift patterns and time-sheets is tremendous. Getting staff to check and update their time-sheets before 4.50pm the day before pay day can be like getting blood from a stone. By locking the time-sheet regularly on CoolCare4, you ensure your team are not leaving it lastminute.com to review hours.
Snapping to shift on our time-sheet prevents you from inadvertently paying for those extra 15 mins here and there. Those extra minutes soon add up to a big care home payroll bill!
Not only that, CoolCare users have reported a huge boost in punctuality and, in turn, staff morale as a result.
Snap to Shift

Most of us would struggle to remember what we did yesterday, let alone last week! Encourage your team to check the time-sheets regularly by locking its functionality. This restricts the period in which changes can be made to hours.
