Not-for-profit provider invests in IT

Posted on January 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Community Integrated Care (CIC), a Cheshire-based not-for-profit provider of long term care for older people and people with learning disabilities or mental illness, has invested more than £500,000, over a three year period, in commissioning integrated financial control and accounting software. The company currently operates 29 care homes and day centres with supported living schemes provided to 199 domestic residences. The investment came after a two-year evaluation of its system requirements and a detailed investigation of the potential solutions available. Coldharbour Systems was successful in supplying a complete Terminal Server platform with all care homes connected via an Internet (VPN) connection, interfacing “Great Plains”, CIC¹s new accountancy software. CIC chief executive Charles Eggleston said the investment in the new IT was an essential component in meeting the company¹s long term strategic objectives. “We are confident of a long and successful partnership with Coldharbour,” Mr Eggleston said
