In 2012 Voyage Care formed a partnership with Maxtime after experiencing continuous and ongoing issues with their payroll.

They undertook extensive and rigorous selection process for the right HR software provider for them, and after careful consideration they chose Maxtime due to the flexibility of the system and how straight forward they found it to operate.

“We selected Maxtime after extensive research in the market for an easy to use and flexible scheduling system.”

What they didn’t anticipate is all the other benefits they experienced after installing the system. One of which is the time savings that the Maxtime software delivered to them.
