Launching the First Dental-Specific People and HR Management Tool
Utilising decades of experience and expertise in the industry, the new iTeam system has been designed and developed to cater for both the general HR business needs of a dental practice, as well as operational daily activities, such as rota, recruitment, and attendance.
This latest addition to Agilio’s product portfolio, which includes iComply and iLearn, comes as the dental technology leader recognised the need for an innovative solution to support dental businesses to overcome people management challenges such as staff recruitment and retention.
The new system has been developed by Agilio’s experienced team of technology specialists, dentists, nurses, and dental business managers, recognising the daily activities that take place in practice, together with the challenges they bring.
iTeam has removed the administrative burden by allowing both employed and self-employed persons to load documents and to read/receive policies at home, as well as giving all team members access to rota and holiday planning for up to a year ahead.
With dental staff being regarded as the most valuable and expensive resource for dental businesses, iTeam’s main aim is to support recruitment, and retention by reducing staff turnover.
Roxanne Gibson, Senior HR Advisor at Agilio Software said: “One of the biggest benefits of iTeam to dental professionals is the rota feature. It allows practices to schedule their rotas up to a year in advance. This means staff have more control over their working lives, encourages attendance which in turn cuts down agency costs and reduces staff conflict by establishing a transparent rota structure for the whole 12 months rather than monthly iterations. The system also flags any problems such as insufficient staffing or inadequate nurse to dentist ratio.
At Agilio, we’re always looking at different ways to use our expertise and knowledge to respond to the needs of dental practices and help them to thrive. iTeam offers dental practices and business a solution that will simply save them time and money by cutting down admin time, optimising the scheduling of work, improving staff retention, and streamlining communication across the entire organisation.”
