Florence has been an exceptional staffing partner. Their efficient and user-friendly platform has enhanced the way we manage staffing. Their SMS Shift Call Out System has made notifying our healthcare staff about shift changes, emergencies, or last-minute replacements a breeze. The messages are delivered instantly, ensuring timely responses, and reducing the risk of staffing gaps. The intuitive interface is easy to navigate, even for our non-tech savvy team members. Setting up the call out lists and managing our contacts takes minutes, saving our team time.

Florence has reduced our reliance on outdated communication methods and paper-based call-out systems, resulting in cost savings for our care home. Florence is an essential tool for any care home seeking to streamline their staff call-out process. Its efficiency, reliability, and ease of use make it an invaluable asset in ensuring smooth operations and optimal resident care. Highly recommended.
