Sona and Greensleeves Care announce partnership

Next-generation frontline workforce technology and an award-winning Care charity come together.

Sona and Greensleeves Care are excited to announce their partnership.

By working together, Sona and Greensleeves Care aim to support teams across its 28 care homes to work more efficiently and in turn drive even greater quality of care for residents. 

The partnership will upgrade the organisation’s workforce management processes including Scheduling and Time & Attendance – all through a user-friendly, end-to-end platform.

Started as a small family of not-for-profit care homes in 1997, Greensleeves Care is now one of the Top 20 Care organisations in England, offering award-winning 24h residential, dementia and nursing care.

James MacDonald-Fawcett, Greensleeves Care’s Digital Transformation Manager said: 

At Greensleeves Care, we are delivering on an ambitious digital transformation strategy. Part of this is focusing on systems that can deliver complex background processes in a user-friendly way, and integrate well with other systems to ease manual intervention.

This will free up colleagues in our homes from some manual processes so they have more time to focus on what they do best - delivering our award-winning care for residents.

Following a competitive process, we felt that Sona, with its current offer and plans for future development, was the best partner to help us deliver a simple-to-use and fully digital scheduling solution.

James MacDonald-Fawcett, Digital Transformation Manager

As a Gold-accredited Investors in People employer, Greensleeves Care has always prioritised the wellbeing of their employees, including through a sector-leading pay increase last year and robust support around mental health. Sona, as the people-centred software, is a natural addition to this strategy.

Oli Johnson, Sona Co-Founder added: 

At Sona, we are passionate about empowering frontline staff and helping organisations digitise their processes in order to be able to focus on offering the exceptional care they’re known for. Knowing Greensleeves’ values and strong commitment to their staff’s wellbeing, we feel incredibly honoured to be chosen as a partner on their digital transformation journey.

Oli Johnson, Sona Co-Founder

Work will start soon with initial pilots in two of Greensleeves’ care homes.
