In a year when Directory Manager clocked up more than 500,000 managed accounts, the latest figures show there are more than 1.27 million full-time equivalent staff working in NHS Trusts in England and although this represents 40% coverage, we have yet to reach the managers of 770,000 employees.
Our recent half a million article finished by inviting all organisations that have yet to deploy the solution to book an introductory session and demo, to better understand the principals and benefits of Directory Manager.
In recent years, the number of NHS managers has reduced and they now make up circa 2 per cent of the workforce. That is 25,400 across the total employee base and 15,400 managers who have yet to realise the benefits of Directory Manager.
If they all accept the offer of an introductory session and demo, we are going to be very busy, but seeing this unique solution rolled out beyond the current 80 NHS Trusts, would help enormously in relieving the pressure on those dedicated managers, who are managing an average of 50 employees each.
We are ready and well equipped to support a larger user population, having built a strong team of product specialists over the last two years, even welcoming one very senior BDS product consultant back into the fold. It has been a joy to see this area of our business flourish and even more enjoyable to receive such favourable feedback from our customers.
As covered in my Xmas message of 2021 we have come a long way and approaching our 30 year anniversary next spring, last yearâ€™s reflection on everything we have achieved serves as a poignant reminder of the many years given to meeting the needs of our NHS customers.
With so much more to share and an exciting 2024 just around the corner, we wish you a relaxing and joyful Xmas.
