PODFather provide mobile workforce management solutions for the NHS and other Healthcare organisations. The system is designed to track assets such as patient records, mail bags and other equipment using GS1 standard barcodes. The system includes scheduling, route-planning & tracking of all assets moved by Porter and Courier teams across geographic regions.

Benefits to NHS:

  • The system can be shared by every Trust to streamline admin processes and management of their Porter/Courier team.
  • It is easy to procure via the G-Cloud 9 framework, or Digital Marketplace, run by Crown Commercial Services. It is easy to implement and easy to use.
  • We collaborate with Medical Records team, Estates & Facilities and Procurement teams to ensure a swift and easy deployment.
  • Works offline - perfect for use in hospital environments and remote areas with poor mobile coverage.
  • Helps prevent the loss of Patient Health Records and Specimen Samples, and eliminates the associated fines.
  • Helps prevent the misplacement and loss of equipment and related costs.
  • Reduces the admin time, errors, costs and risks associated with manual and paper-based processes.
  • It enhances the administrative processes around scheduling both ad-hoc and regular tasks for office staff, Hospital Porters/Couriers and Facilities Maintenance crews.
  • Using GS1-standard bar-code formats, it tracks the movements of items between sites (e.g. Patient Records, Mail, Specimens, Laundry, Dental, etc) and keeps real-time electronic records of all asset movements and tasks completed.
  • It drives positive, sustainable change; modernising paper-based processes into a streamlined, real-time, automated model.
  • PODFather complements CIP (Cost Improvement Program) strategy for sustainable cost improvements by making admin processes more efficient, improving productivity and promoting operational excellence.
