Up to the second information about care workers’ movements

A supported living care environment frequently means staff may be working without supervision on their own or in small teams. It is therefore vital that managers know quickly if a support worker is delayed in their schedule so service users can be contacted and, if necessary, alternative arrangements made for their care. This relies on having a reliable electronic attendance recording system that can alert management instantly to any issues as they arise.

easyLog offers a full range of appropriate, cost-effective visit monitoring options to suit all budgets, staff numbers and work locations. Click here for an at-a-glance guide to our attendance apps.

Mobile and landline-based visit recording options

Our Log-In App is an affordable option for care staff who work in a community setting.  The app runs on the carer’s Apple, Android or Windows smartphone, enabling them to record their attendance at the service user’s property and on an ad-hoc basis – for example, when meeting the client at a shopping centre or bus station and so on. Downloadable from the official app stores, it is simple to install and use. The app can record attendance by scanning QR codes or NFC tags, with GPS to confirm the location, or by GPS geolocation technology alone.

Alternatively, our landline-based Call-Log service allows support workers to use a free-to-call 0800 number to record their attendance, which they confirm by entering a PIN, when they arrive and leave a location.

Versatile tablets, dedicated clocking terminals and biometric devices

For a supported living property with small numbers of care staff, a low-cost wall or desk-mounted tablet is often ideal. Employees record their attendance by selecting their name from a dropdown list and then verifying their identity by PIN code. The same tablet could also be used to record and review care records using the care-Logger App, providing an even greater value for money.

For larger numbers of staff, easyLog offers a wide range of built-for-purpose attendance recording terminals. These can identify staff by a traditional tag or card or through biometric recognition using fingerprint, face or hand scan. Specialist devices that communicate through a SIM card can also be implemented if no local broadband connection is available.

All these recording methods can be mixed in the most appropriate way across multiple sites within an organisation while passing the attendance records automatically in to a single software application for improved management and efficiency.
