Case Study: Advinia Healthcare


Advinia is boosting team morale and the bottom line with Sona's ultra-efficient shift fulfilment.

Advinia is a top 20 UK care home operator, with 36 homes and over 3,500 staff across England and Scotland. The HR team at Advinia were struggling with too much TSOF (time spent on fulfilment) and high temp agency staff usage to fill gaps in rotas.

After a successful pilot of our shift filler feature, Advinia rolled out Sona’s employee app and shift filling platform to all its homes.

"The system is now in all our homes with great results, with not just financial benefits seen but colleague morale having increased as they can easily see their rotas and also pick up extra shifts as they want to."
