LONDON—CareLineLive, an all-in-one homecare management software company, announced its acquisition of the business behind CareFor IT and Ulysses (UDMS).
CareLineLive’s said that its acquisition makes technology-driven quality homecare provision easier to deliver for an increasing number of customers and local authorities. CareLineLive’s total number of homecare customers will increase to 600, managing more than 15,000 carers in total across the UK, Ireland, Jersey and Australia. These customers range from the very smallest agencies to large-scale enterprise customers and include multiple local authorities and NHS Trusts.
Working closely with the homecare agencies and industry, CareLineLive provides homecare operators and all-in-one cloud-based homecare management system. Its platform aims to lead to increased efficiency, capacity and compliance through digitizing workflows, automating procedures and decreasing overheads. The investment round secured earlier this year set the pathway toward this acquisition.
“We’re very pleased to welcome CareFor IT and Ulysses staff and customers to the CareLineLive family,” commented Josh Hough, CareLineLive founder and MD. “This acquisition will ultimately help to create one of the strongest all-in-one homecare management platforms in Europe which aims for the highest customer service and satisfaction. We look forward to the journey ahead, as we continue to drive quality standards in homecare in the UK and beyond.”
CareLineLive, which already supplies to the UK, Ireland, Jersey and Australia, is NHSX certified as a Digital Social Care Record (DSCR) assured supplier, in addition to achieving accreditations such as NHS Data Security Protection (DSP) Toolkit, Cyber Essentials, ISO 9001 and 27001.
“We are excited to join with CareLineLive and help drive quality care for agencies and their clients," said Richard Bedford, who stays with the acquired business as sales director. "For CareFor IT and Ulysses customers, it is very much business as usual on the platforms they are familiar with, with access to the wider range of tools and resources that CareLineLive offers if and when they would like to switch over. CareLineLive’s comprehensive and intuitive platform, and its accreditations with NHSX, NHS Digital, Cyber Essentials and ISOs will bring innovation, compliance and many more benefits to our customers. These new tools and capabilities will further support our existing customers, and we look forward to the opportunities it brings.”
