Emprevo has been proven to be easy to implement and very user-friendly and has gained rapid staff acceptance across the Aged Care and Healthcare industries. By maximising the use of an operator’s own staff, there is a significantly reduced need for Agency workers.
In addition, Emprevo substantially reduces the time and expense taken to communicate with staff about roster allocations. The process for posting and filling shifts in dramatically simplified, eliminating associated costs and freeing up valuable time that can be better utilised elsewhere. Emprevo also:
- increases staff engagement and therefore positively impacts retention;
- delivers better care outcomes through the use of internal staff who are already trained and familiar with each residence; and
- replaces or substantially reduces a multitude of operator costs with what is a nominal expense.
Here’s what some of Emprevo’s client have to say:
Assisted by Emprevo, in the 12 months to December 2017, we reduced Agency usage by 31,526 hours. This represents a gross saving in Agency costs of about $1.3M (across 23 homes) and a direct cash saving of about $440,000.
Fabio Maya, CEO, Sapphire Care
The rollout of Emprevo was very easy and a natural fit to our business needs. Communication to the staff about the change to process was clear, but the system is easy enough to use so they picked it up very quickly. Emprevo has improved after-hours shift fill rate and assisted us in reducing agency use.
James Simon, Residential Systems Project Coordinator, Baptcare
Emprevo is a simple app notification platform that has been easy for managers and staff to use since introduction. It is has been a time saving application for our facility and adopted as an adjunct to assist the facility for securing staff to fill shift vacancies.
Paula McDonald, Clinical Projects Manager, St Vincent’s Private Hospital
Staff replacement has always been difficult but since the introduction of Emprevo we spend less time on the phones and our staff have more time doing what they do best, caring for our residents. Managers’ report they have found Emprevo easy to use with logical step by step processes across all functions. They state it takes no time at all to learn how to add new employees, send and cancel shift offers and change employee availability.
The feedback that I get from employees is that the system is user friendly especially given they can view and accept shift offers anytime and anywhere on their smartphone or tablet. The support we have had to set and manage the system from the Emprevo team has been amazing. It’s a great, easy system that make staff replacement easy but efficient and effective!
Kerri Rivett, CEO, Shepparton Villages Aged Care
When Emprevo was launched at GoldAge, the previous three months averaged 4% Agency use. The staff were sceptical about Emprevo making any difference and I was as well. The outcome has been quite significant, with time spent filling shifts considerably reduced. Roster managers have gone from spending up to 3 hours per day chasing staff to fill shifts, to just a few minutes. If we assume that is a cost saving of just $50 per hour, which is conservative, that alone adds up to over $15,000 per year. Now, three months in, our Agency usage has reduced to 1%. In addition, staff are happier because they are aware of more available shifts.
Greg Gunn, CEO, GoldAge
We have recently implemented the Emprevo application across 23 Residences. Before Emprevo, we used a well-known roster system with SMS messaging and around 50% of vacant shifts were filled by internal staff. Now after using Emprevo for 3 months, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive with up to 95% of our vacant sifts being filled by internal staff. The application is easy to use, provides instant notification and allows staff to manage their preferences and work across sites more easily. Use of the application has also made communication and rostering more efficient, saving Managers’ time. Implementation of Emprevo has been a major initiative that has assisted in the reduction of agency use across the organisation.
Penny Hobson, General Manager Care at Home, BlueCross
We started using Emprevo just on 2 months ago. The real beauty of this program is its simplicity and ease of use. The training was minimal as the program is so intuitive. Already we have seen a rapid decrease in vacant shifts and a huge decrease in the number of phone calls that managers have to make in trying to find staff. Even better, we have happier and more engaged casual and part time staff who now work more hours. I believe that in time this will lead to a reduction in the number of staff we need to recruit and train as we continue to better utilise those we have already on board.
