Clearwater, FL (June 21, 2017) – KanTime Software has recently launched a real-time mobile text-messaging feature within its platform. Since home care is a real-time business, providers need software that supports real-time communication between caregivers and back-office staff. Due to the great success of this feature within the KanTime Private Duty platform, KanTime has launched a mobile text messaging capabilities for its pediatric and home health providers as well.

“The ability to SMS open shifts is popular as well as is the automated schedule reminder SMS feature. Both allow the staff to be proactive with notifications to caregivers, which saves time,” said a senior executive at a large franchise-based home care agency.

The best part of the SMS feature in KanTime is the inherent benefit of being able to historically document communications between the staff. The reminders for schedules and schedule changes save a lot of phone calls as well,” said the President of another home care agency.

The mobile text-messaging feature reminds caregivers of upcoming schedules, alerts back-office staff and caregivers of missed shifts or missed check-ins and check-outs, allows you to broadcast open schedules focused to a group of clinicians that can meet the shift requirements, processes incoming text messages from caregivers confirming their availability, and even alerts caregivers when new schedules are created or when current schedules are changed.

“We’ve realized that the fastest way to communicate with caregivers who are in the field is through text messaging. The two-way text messaging feature helps home care agencies handle exceptions in a timely manner before an issue escalates,” said a senior executive at KanTime.
