ShiftCare vs. MYP
Both MYP and ShiftCare will help you more efficiently manage your support provider business, but which is best suited to your company’s needs?
An NDIS and Aged Care Software Showdown
Running a disability support or aged care business comes with a hefty administrative workload. From rostering, invoicing, clients’ funds management and goal tracking to staff onboarding, client-staff matching and audit preparation, your to-do list can be overwhelming.
Software custom-built for the disability and aged care industries can streamline these administrative tasks so you can focus on what’s really important: providing exceptional support and care that helps clients achieve their goals and experience a higher quality of life.
The right software will enable you to boost service quality, increase efficiency and scale your business. What’s more, it will improve the employee experience.
That’s why we’re comparing the pros and cons of two NDIS and aged care software solutions: MYP and ShiftCare. At first glance, they can seem similar. However, there are important differences between them, especially when it comes to the onboarding process and fees, after-sales support and on-the-go functionality for your team.
