Total workforce transparency for data-driven decisions
Save time. Reduce costs. Drive improvements.
“Patchwork Insights has been really impactful at King’s. The data and insights unlocked through the extensive range of dashboards has helped us improve decision making and challenge where appropriate to further drive agency spend down. Patchwork Insights was a key determination in our procurement of Patchwork and it’s great to see those benefits coming through.”
Finally access the data you need to drive improvements in one place
Decisions are easier when they’re supported by data that everyone can see and actually use on a regular basis. Unlike other providers, we realise that data and reporting platforms must be intuitive.
That’s why we’ve built a system that replicates Excel where you need it, but with additional features to help you to interpret and act on the meaning behind the numbers.
With more staff engaging with your data, you get more transparency, more accountability and better outcomes.
Effectively communicate your full staffing picture
We’ve moved past manually aggregating figures from spreadsheets, so you can focus on taking action.
Patchwork Insights’ configurable dashboards provide 360 visibility of your workforce activities and costs. You can dig into the details of your staffing activities and spend at a local or regional level in one place, on demand (no add-on modules here).
We keep everything in system, so you never miss a report or lose sight of the data you need to drive improvements.
Drive long-term, sustainable workforce improvements with:
Reduce unplanned spend
