Nursebuddy wants to involve you, homecare managers, coordinators and care workers, in our product improvement process. You know best which kind of care software helps the most in the daily routines of adult social care. So that’s why we launched a feature request discussion board within our platform!
You can easily add in your requests and upvote suggestions from others, while seeing the progress of each proposal. Our development team reviews all feedback received, implements the most valuable requests and improves Nursebuddy continuously.

Click the 'Create post' button
Your feature request will now appear in the list.
The better you can describe the problem you want us to solve the easier it is for our developers to understand what kind of tool would solve the problem.

Within the same product improvement platform you can also see a live view of the feature requests we've worked on. It's a quick and easy way to find out what's coming next in Nursebuddy and whether your idea will soon arrive in our homecare platform!
What happens after a request or an upvote has been sent?
Part of making a good product is finding the essential features or improvements that bring the most value for our customers. Therefore, all of your requests are reviewed and prioritised.
The requests vary by the amount of work, necessity and demand. Some feature requests can conflict with each other, while others can be very specific to a particular organisation's needs, so we always evaluate whether the request is suitable for the Nursebuddy platform as a whole.
We go through the wishlist items with our customer success team, support team, product owner and development team to get insights about the requests and prioritise the ideas so that we’ll find the most critical improvements to make.
Then our wonderful developers start doing their magic! We are continuously growing our team to help build and develop our software to meet your needs. We could develop our platform until the end of time as there is always something new to add to the system. A homecare software that has stopped its development is already an old system.
We truly value all the ideas you share with us, and they help us in continuing to improve our homecare software. We love working closely with our customers as it helps to ensure that we offer a solution that is fit for its purpose of planning, delivering and reporting homecare. With us, you can help yourself to have the best possible homecare software for your company.
