So you’ve been able to build a successful home care agency, and now you’re contemplating whether it’s time to take the leap to multiple locations. This is a huge decision with many implications for the future of your business, so it’s important to make it on as informed a basis as possible. While there are always risks to growth, with careful planning and the right resources and support, you can minimize them to give yourself the best chance of a successful expansion.
One of the first steps you should take before deciding to expand is a thorough audit of your existing organization to determine scalability. Will your systems and operations truly be able to scale to two locations? How about 10? Nobody wants to branch out only to find themselves bogged down in inefficiencies because they spread their resources too thin. Before you start to grow, your agency needs a strong platform to launch from.
Three factors that can contribute to successful expansion
Agencies who grow successfully typically have the right systems in place from the beginning. This is where Savii can help you. In our most recent e-book, our team has isolated three key factors that drive smooth and sustainable growth for home care agencies and how our platform delivers them:
- A scalable structure — When many entrepreneurs start an organization, they often develop systems on the fly. These systems may work well for one location but may start to strain under expansion efforts. Our e-book takes a deeper dive into how our platform and database is built to handle thousands of data points just as smoothly as 10.
- Integrated systems — Agency operations, from staffing to client development to billing, are very often dispersed in different places for independent organizations. This can only add to increasing chaos as you try to expand. By integrating your systems under one umbrella, it becomes easier to see your organization as a whole while also being able to focus more closely on an individual branch or aspect.
- Support and security — While information technology allows us to do amazing things with our business, it can mean added complexity. From data security to compliance, working with a state-of-the-art platform can give you peace of mind and protection as your business grows.
