We come from a background of human resource management, database
development and education - a combination which means that we can
tackle complex problems behind the scenes while communicating
easily with the user.
We realised that in the last few years, several large providers
of human resource software have tried to provide a solution to
help nurses plan the Off-Duty. However, because their systems
were incredibly complicated, and designed as a "jack of all trades"
that could be used in any industry, they were just no good to
a busy NHS ward sister.
So, one spring morning, we sat down in a cafe and sketched out
the basic plan for RotaBee on a napkin. We produced a mock-up which
we showed to several ward sisters - and they loved it. So we went
on to produce a prototype, which we tested in lots of wards so
we could get it just right... and the rest is history!
