The KareInn app is set to bring care homes into the digital age. The majority of homes still use paper-based records to hold medical and care information on patients. These are susceptible to mistakes and time-consuming for caregivers. By providing a patient’s medical records in a digital and real-time format, KareInn reduces the time carers have to spend on record-keeping and helps them provide a higher standard of care and make better informed decisions.

Reverse auction model
Designed to reduce costs for motorists, honcho is the UK’s first ‘reverse auction’ marketplace for car insurance. Unlike price comparison websites, which charge commission, insurers pay honcho just £1 for the right to bid as many times as they like for a single customer. Honcho says its system incentivises insurers to reduce premiums for drivers in order to win their custom. The app aims to launch in July, following a successful crowdfunding campaign, which secured over £840,000. Future plans include expansion into home and pet insurance.

A second brain
SD Worx, a provider of HR and payroll solutions, is trialling a new app that uses artificial intelligence to automate all the admin-related tasks that follow on from calling in sick, booking a day’s holiday, submitting expenses, making travel arrangements etc.. The SD Worx Digital Assistant automates every aspect of these processes, saving users from having to switch between different systems. It also anticipates what’s needed next, guiding the user through to a successful completion and ensuring that nothing is neglected. The app currently links to the SD Worx self-service HR system and is limited to interaction via touch and a text-based chatbot. The next stage is to add a speech-enabled interface so that users can interact with the app through voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home. In time, SD Worx plans to integrate it with more applications, like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, and even other HR systems so that eventually everyone can benefit from ‘a second brain’.
Mentoring and recruitment app Cajigo, launched on International Women’s Day (March 8, 2018), aims to encourage more women into tech. It provides a series of mentoring videos created by senior business leaders to help women develop their careers and a recruitment database for employers. The app is the brainchild of Rav Bumbra, founder of recruitment business Structur3dpeople, whose own experiences as a woman in tech convinced her of the need for such a service. She said: “Having worked in the tech industry for 25 years, I have often been the only woman in the room. But if we are to see more women progress in the tech industry, they need mentoring. So many women approach me on how to find a mentor and this solution provides every woman with access to one.”
