  • Client Management – including reporting of NDIS/DEX data ​
  • Event Management ​
  • Marketing Management​
  • Human Resources Management
  • Electronic documents & care authority permissions tracking​
  • Web-based client self-service​
  • Web-based service provider self-service

Solution Benefits

The Odoo system incorporating client-specific customisations has delivered an all-in-one system for the Client. The majority of related data including emails and client history is now centralised within the solution. The amount of calls and queries has dropped as clients and authorised service providers can manage their bookings and services to be delivered directly within the system. This allows our client’s staff to focus on more proactive activities such as following up clients that have budget for services and have not requested or booked them. In summary, the solution benefits included:

  • Improved, more timely and less manual reporting
  • Greater visibility over staff activities
  • Ability to determine bottle-necks in service delivery through workflow monitoring
  • Lower administrative costs
  • Greater customer satisfaction and interaction
