Care home group moves to the cloud with Auxilion

Care home group, Canford Healthcare, is implementing a major technology programme with international cloud transformation and support company, Auxilion.

Canford, which employs more than 1,000 staff across 10 care homes and two domiciliary care businesses in the south east England, is investing over £115,000 in cloud based technology and services to boost staff efficiency as well as resident and guest facilities.

“Over the last 12 months we have grown from five care homes to ten with staff increasing from 500 to over 1,000. We turned to Auxilion to make sure that our technology keeps pace and provides a scalable platform for future growth,” commented Brian Cooney, managing director of Canford Healthcare.

Paul Schmitz, chief sales officer of Auxilion, said: “Canford has a clear vision of how it wants to become one of the UK’s premier providers of care and support services. The implementation of a secure, scalable, reliable and cost effective technology cloud based platform is a one of the fundamental elements in helping to achieve that goal.”

Canford had been using on premise servers and software. Integration between the various care homes was difficult and increasingly so as new locations came on board. The cost of replacing and maintaining a wide range of on premise servers was expensive and inefficient.

The new infrastructure has been carefully integrated with Canford’s specialist care home software application which incorporates care planning and scheduling and minimises administrative tasks to allow staff to focus on residents.
