Plainly for the care sector

Less time on paperwork. More time for care.


Why Plainly


The complexity of managing a multi-site business can be challenging. Maintaining central oversight of processes, costs and standards while giving local managers the freedom to run things their way is a delicate balance.


Add in staff shortages, mandatory compliance checks, CQC inspections and sensitively handling admissions and it is clear that the care sector comes with a unique admin burden.


That’s where Plainly comes in.


Super-charge your care services


With simple implementation and ongoing support, our easy to use platform lets care providers simplify their huge admin burden; saving significant time and costs while also reducing risk.


Paperless paperwork

Automate any admin process, from employee onboarding and HR, to enquiries, admissions, visitor and staff logging and more.

No coding necessary

Build highly bespoke processes without major IT costs. Be up and running in days, not months or years.

Flexible, scalable pricing

Pay for usage, not for users. Grant access to anyone who needs it - you don't pay more.

Care sector challenges

Solving your specific problems



The care sector has a recruitment crisis - there are simply too few candidates and too many vacancies. Care providers are competing for candidates, not just with other providers, but every other employer with vacancies to fill. Added to that, there are a host of care-specific compliance steps that providers must complete before employing someone. These slow everything down and make roles even harder to fill.
