Nursebuddy Introduces Revolutionary Scheduling System: Meet Autopilot!

Nursebuddy’s Autopilot is here to help with all your scheduling needs. Book a demo to find out how to schedule all your carer visits’ with one button click.

Planning and scheduling are often challenging – clients have different preferences of carers, carers have different schedules and expertise, the distance between different clients – you name it, it’s a lot to consider. Planning a perfect weekly schedule for your care company may seem like a daunting task, one that is stressful and takes many hours away from you every week.


Putting together a schedule for your care company is demanding as there are a lot of variables to take into consideration regarding your carers and your clients. As if regular scheduling alone wasn’t challenging enough, adding the possibility of carer or client falling sick, having to reschedule for whatever reason, or plan for emergencies adds a new dimension of difficulty.  


Nursebuddy’s Autopilot feature is here to solve your scheduling nightmares once and for all. 

Autopilot automizes scheduling client visits in Nursebuddy so that each client visit is allocated to the perfect carer for the given client. The client-carer suitability is assessed against a range of requirements that could be difficult to stay on top of when scheduling manually!

What Autopilot takes into consideration when making your company’s weekly schedule for you:

For the clients

  1. Carer compliance matches the visit requirements
  2. The carer is not a no-go carer for the client
  3. The visit time preference window is always respected
  4. The length of the visit is respected
  5. Team boundaries are respected by default
  6. Client preferred carers are prioritized.
  7. Clients’ carer gender preferences are prioritized.

For the carers

  1. Travel time (driving) between visits is taken into account
  2. Carers’ lunch breaks are automatically accounted for in schedules. By default, work shifts longer than 6 hours will have a 30-minute lunch break in the 2-hour window in the middle of the work shift.
  3. The carer’s work shift starts by default at the first visit location and ends at the shift’s last visit location.
