The features in this section are currently in development and testing for upcoming releases. The most exciting features that are closest to release often include videos or screenshots so that you can familiarise yourself with new features before they launch.
Managing bookings with multiple customers
New universal controls allow team members to check-in, check out and submit customer notes for all customers in a booking – saving time and eliminating extra admin when it’s not required. The billing and invoice for the booking will automatically be split correctly between customers according to the settings on the service and the NDIS price guide.
NDIS price guide versioning
Your GoodHuman platform stays ahead of NDIS price guide changes and applies the correct pricing to your bookings – ensuring accurate invoicing up to, and including, the day new changes come into effect. Editing line times with custom pricing is simple if you choose to set your own prices or defer price increases. All bookings are automatically updated with new prices as they are updated by the NDIS.
Location-based rostering and notifications
GoodHuman uses the location information on bookings and from workers to help you roster smarter and ensure your workers know how long it will take to get to their next shift. This feature makes filling shifts last minute particularly easy based on which workers are nearby.
Quote tracking on service agreements
Service agreement quotes forecast an estimated spend based on the NDIS pricing guide, booking cadence and duration of the agreement. Customers and team members will be able to track the amount invoiced to-date in real-time against the plan quote for each line item. This increased visibility over each service agreement quote lets customers see at a glance through the customer app when they are pacing ahead or behind on their quoted spend so that they can better manage their bookings and budget.
The features in this section are in concept refinement, design or early-stage development.
Rostering updates – including matching team member skills to customer requirements
Enhancements to the rostering tool include:
Using skills and certification data, as well as customer preferences to recommend the best team member for each shift
Processing rosters and timesheets for payroll
Fortnightly view of shifts and bookings
Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services (SCHADS) warnings
Build skills-based rosters, manage customer preferences, activities and schedule changes for group bookings easily using the group bookings tool.
Supported independent living (SIL) rosters
This feature makes creating rosters based on SIL resident’s schedules or roster of care and staff availability simple. Custom templates will save you time each rostering schedule while giving you the flexibility to make edits when plans change.
Keeping track of staff expenses and reimbursements will soon be as simple as clicking “approve” using the expense management tool. Team members will add expenses to the booking expenses via the business app as they check out, saving admin for them and allowing you to have all of the invoicing information you need in one place.
Customer profile UI updates
The new intuitive customer profile layout allows for easier navigation so that you can find the customer information you need quickly and easily manage profile content.
A new way for workspace users to manage their day, smart notifications will include a list of daily tasks based on each team member’s unique role – in addition to triggering notifications for further action items throughout the day. Think of it as your daily to-do list, but better.
Enhancements to billing automation
Service templates to save time on repetitive admin
Ability to specify line items at the booking level
Billing exceptions and customisation for specific customers
Ability to group related line items
Customised price lists
Create custom price lists for services that fall outside of the NDIS guide. The line items in custom price lists will be available when creating services and invoices will automatically reflect your custom pricing.
Business app enhancements
New functionality and a refreshed interface make the task of managing bookings – including checking in and out of shifts and submitting customer notes – using the GoodHuman business app easier than ever before.
Certificates, qualifications and tags on support worker profiles
Designed to inform the new GoodHuman rostering feature, the new fields available on team member profiles allow you to add certifications and qualifications, as well as custom tags. This information makes rostering faster and easier – with the GoodHuman platform recommending workers that best match customer requirements for each booking.
Real-time NDIS integration
For business users, the NDIS integration makes uploading bulk payment requests to NDIA a thing of the past. Instead, payment requests to NDIA will be automated as part of the invoicing process.
Incident reporting workflows
Create and automate customised workflows so that when incidents are reported, the notifications required for your team to take the actions to work towards a resolution are triggered.
The features in this section are up next to go into development.
