Chamber member Zest Solutions wins contracts with care homes

Written by Paula Devine | 06 Aug 2012

Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce member Zest Solutions are celebrating success and business growth after winning contracts with two of the country’s largest care home operators, Orchard Care Homes and Twinglobe Care Homes Ltd.

Zest won the contracts off the back of launching their cloud computing service, Zest Cloud, which will help care home providers store, manage and share their information with much more ease and control.

Currently Orchard Care Homes and Twinglobe Care Homes Ltd are using the Zest cloud service to store and backup their company data in a safe and secure environment.

Michael Sheehan, managing director of Zest Care solutions says: “Winning two new contracts within the first 3 months of launching this service is phenomenal and testament to our service as a whole.

“Cloud computing is particularly pertinent to the care sector, especially as record keeping and audit trails are required as standard through the CQC (Care Quality Commission). Cloud computing eradicates the potential for loss of that data due to technical glitches or security breaches and we are hopeful more companies will see these benefits as we push to build our business further”

Facts you may not have known about cloud computing:

Cloud computing means the need for a physical infrastructure and maintenance is avoided. It conveniently provides your data from anywhere in the world at any computer. And all your data and software is safe and secure in an offsite location.

  • Data breach or hacking is impossible under cloud computing as security is much tighter.
  • It enables flexible working by allowing staff to work from a convenient location and could reduce your fixed costs such as office overheads and travel.
  • No matter how much traffic your data receives there will always be consistent ease of access. Common issues of down-time and slow servers are eradicated through cloud computing.
  • Increased technical capability is delivered through the use of specialised software and tools that could otherwise cost too much to use in the traditional way.

Zest Solutions Group is a national business solutions company who provides IT and communications services from its extensive business support services. Their aim is to enhance and assist businesses with their day to day offering and business development.
