Florence for Business app launched for healthcare organisations

Today we're excited to announce the launch of our new app for healthcare organisations, ‘Florence for Business’.

You can fill shifts even faster with the app, sending open shifts to your own team – plus our 90,000 care professionals – in seconds.

It's another step forward on our mission to help everyone deliver better care.

What you can do with Florence for Business

What can you do with the app?

Care homes, nursing homes, domiciliary services and NHS trusts on Florence can use the app to fill shifts on the go, from anywhere.

You're no longer tied to managing shifts from your desktop or laptop – you can do it all from your phone, anytime.

Here's everything you can do with the app:

  • Post shifts to your own staff + Florence professionals
  • Review care professionals' profiles
  • Accept shift applicants
  • Accept (or reject) timesheets
  • View a list of Florence professionals on shift (updated daily)

Why launch Florence for Business?

Our Florence care professionals have their own app they love (it's five-star rated in the App Store) – but why make an app for healthcare organisations too, when Florence on desktop works well already?

We believe we can't solve the global healthcare staffing crisis without innovation, so we're always looking for new ways to help care organisations fill shifts.

The Florence for Business app makes using Florence even easier – as one early test user (who's a care home manager) put it, "It's simple to use and is clearly designed to make things as easy as possible for us. It’s also so much quicker for approving timesheets and posting or filling shifts."

Our CEO and co-founder, Dr. Charles Armitage, says: “The Florence for Business app is a major step for the company as we continue to use technology to improve the healthcare sector. Staffing and vacancy rates across the sector are at the highest levels in years, with quality of care suffering as a result. We know that the healthcare professionals are facing insurmountable pressure on a daily basis, the ongoing staffing crisis across the sector is forcing healthcare managers into a constant state of emergency. Filling shift vacancies, often urgently, is clearly becoming a challenge that managers have to deal with more and more frequently. This app is an important development in Florence’s portfolio and highlights Florence's commitment to alleviate the pressure by making staffing as seamless as possible.”
