The Access Group Wins Award Recognition for Covid-19 Care Sector Support

The Access Group has won a prestigious award for its response to the Covid-19 pandemic in the care sector after quickly adapting its efforts towards supporting the sector.

The business technology specialist’s health and social care division, which provides software solutions for more than 10,500 care locations across the UK, won the award for the best response to the Covid-19 emergency at the Care Sector Supplier Awards.

The Access Group was praised for adapting its focus to providing support for the whole care sector on a free Covid-19 support hub, allowing customers and non-customers to access the latest advice, news and support, as they navigated through Covid-19.

Alongside the support hub, a free downloadable guide was created which included key information on infection control, business continuity advice, and detailed the software modifications put in place to help care organisations reduce the spread of Covid-19.

The Access Group’s product specialists also provided more than £80,000 worth of free consulting directly to its customers to help support their operations during the pandemic, and further support and donations were made to the Care Worker’s Charity.

Steve Sawyer, Managing Director of The Access Group’s health and social care division, said:

“Our strategy right from the initial outbreak of Covid-19 in the UK was simply to provide as much support to the care sector as possible. As the situation unfolded, it was evident that care organisations were going to be significantly impacted by the pandemic and it was an easy decision to adapt the way we support the sector, offering care providers additional resources for them to be able to focus on providing the best care possible.

“This award is testament to a whole team effort, from development quickly adding new product features, our market specialist team creating nearly 50 pieces of invaluable content in just three months, to sourcing face masks and other PPE, and providing free consulting from our product specialists to help support our customers’ operations during the pandemic.”
