12 Reasons to Buy Ablyss CMS - March "Staff Find it Easy to Use"

If you are thinking of investing in Care Planning Software, you need to be sure that your staff are going to be able to use it. At Ablyss Systems we have worked with hundreds of care homes over the years and this has helped us to develop a very user friendly and flexible system which all of your staff will be able to use.

Jeannie Carlson, Care Home Manager at Simeon Care for the Elderly says:

“Virtually every member of the team has learned to use it, even those with minimal computer literacy. There has been a marked improvement in the quality of the daily records and, most importantly, they are accessible and easy to read”

We designed Ablyss CMS Tablet and Ablyss CMS Touch specifically with care assistants in mind to simplify and speed up the time it takes to record ongoing daily care notes. Built in templates gently guide the user through common routines such as getting up and dressed, eating patterns and night checks. As every home is different these templates are fully customisable.

Ian Day, the Owner of St Omer Residential Home says:

“Everyone who works here is comfortable with the system. Within 30 minutes of being shown the system all of our staff were able to use it and were commenting that we should have started using it years ago! Because the whole team feels confident with CMS there has been no resistance to it and that is half the battle with change.”

Knowing your staff are behind your decision to computerise can really make the world of difference. Why not show your team today

Mae antur eira yn Wrecsam!! (...or a snowy adventure in Wrexham)




Last week I spent a lovely 2 days with new sign-ups Trewythen Hall in Wrexham. The Owner and Manager were a little nervous of the change in systems and so decided to opt for our Gold support package. This meant that I got to spend 2 whole days with Sue, Dawn and the team, customising the system, and training the staff to use CMS.

It was a lovely couple of days! A bit snowy but a pleasure to spend my time with such kind and welcoming people. The area around the home itself is a stunning piece of countryside, big valleys, meandering rivers and snow topped hills. It almost made it difficult to concentrate on the work at hand!

This is the first time I have done 2 days training together at a home and whereas I found it lovely to be in comfortable surroundings, with people I had gotten to know and like, it did make it a bit sad when I reached the end of day 2 and had to say goodbye. Despite those feelings, it was great to leave knowing that everyone was really to grips with the system and were confident to get going.
