Life Plus’ weekly hours have quadrupled with AlayaCare


For Michelle Batchelor, CEO of Life Plus, going live with AlayaCare has signalled a new age of success for the organisation.

As a wholly New Zealand-owned company, Life Plus specialises in delivering outstanding recruitment services to the healthcare sector. They combine over 70 years of healthcare industry staffing knowledge with the latest technologies to provide a faster, smarter, personal and professional service tailored to each client’s needs.

Thanks to AlayaCare, Life Plus has been able to streamline and optimise their operations, while reducing the administration strain on their teams.

Why switching to AlayaCare is a win-win for businesses

“AlayaCare has made our coordinators’ lives easier – taking away their headache and all the admin.”

“And streamlining the overall process is obviously a win-win for our business”, says Michelle.

“As a provider in New Zealand, some of our most recent challenges have been around managing budgets for clients on particular contracts, and also implementing the in-between travel time requirements.”

“[With AlayaCare], we’ve been able to implement those changes quickly and easily at no additional cost, which has been invaluable to us.”

Weekly hours are now growing rapidly

“Our business has seen our weekly hours quadruple, so we now do four times the number of hours that we previously did per week”, says Michelle.

I think that’s due to a number of things, from the streamlined rostering system, using the different elements of AlayaCare, from the budgeting on the service side, implementing legislative changes through the system quickly and easily, and having the ability with the AlayaCare app has really helped with that growth.

An all-in-one solution for Life Plus

“AlayaCare has made our coordinators’ lives easier just with general day-to-day stuff, such as rostering, being able to streamline the rostering process in terms of staff travel time, being able to track when people are late, not having to deal with paper time sheets, not receiving as many phone calls, things like that.”

For organisations who are going to market for a new software provider, Michelle has this advice.

“You need to ask yourself [not just] whether it meet the requirements for today, but also does it meet your requirements for tomorrow”

“And for us, AlayaCare did that”, says Michelle.
