The online business management solution myAko has a revamped website, while five more features are being added during March, these are Events Management, Surveys, Career Pathway, Team Chat, and the myAko Mobile App.
MyAko is about making learning easier and helping care homes manage their teams more effectively. It is cloud-based and uses innovative and cutting-edge technology.
“As an industry we must up our game and develop more engaging and relevant solutions that help our customers learn new skills when they need to,” says managing director Kevin Ashley.
Leaders and managers can use the Events Management tool to organise face-to-face training sessions in one easy-to-access place. Staff can request courses and gain approval from managers who can track learning within their entire organisation. Tutors can mark attendance (including pass or fail) via the mobile App and real-time compliance reports are generated.
myAko has also designed a bespoke Survey tool that lets managers monitor feedback in their business.
Care service providers can create surveys and polls of their own to provide team leaders and managers with valuable insight into how their organisation is performing. The tool can also be used to gather anonymous feedback, with information sent externally to families, partners and third parties. Care providers can then use this information to identify areas for improvement or to reward and recognise staff achievements.
myAko has also developed a unique career pathway tool to boost staff retention. Managers can agree on a timeline for staff development with individual employees. This is already accessible on desktop, mobile and tablet and will soon be added to the mobile app.
“We continue to embrace advances in technology and have big plans to become the leading online business management solution in health and social care,” says Ashley.
