What Is Astalty?

Astalty is an NDIS support coordination software for businesses of all sizes, from sole traders to large enterprises.


The software operates on a freemium model. Sole traders can create a free account to upload participants’ files, create daily tasks and record billable time. But for additional features, such as invoicing, adding staff members and Xero integrations, you’ll need a premium account. These start at $49 per staff member per month, with the most popular package costing $64 per user per month.

Astalty’s main feature is its Task Board. Your admin team can add tasks for each support worker, assigning them to specific days of the week. This creates a to-do list of client appointments and other responsibilities. You can also divide these tasks into billable and non-billable activities, attach expenses to them and use the records to generate invoices.

Which Care Management Software Is Best for Your Business?

With Astalty, you’ll use a Task Board to schedule client services. This means you can drag and drop appointments to each staff member’s daily to-do list. However, unlike with ShiftCare, you can’t view a weekly team or client calendar, create team rosters, invite staff to bid on shifts or require staff to check in and out of their shifts with Astalty.

ShiftCare allows you to manage staff documents, set up document expiry notifications, collect clients’ digital signatures and get real-time alerts when things go wrong, helping you stay compliant. And it comes with companion apps for your support workers and clients’ loved ones.


You can set up ShiftCare in 10 minutes, whether it’s your first time using care management software or you’re migrating from a different platform.
