The Operational Features of Unique IQ Explained

At Unique IQ, our IQ:timecard and IQ:careplanner software is more than simply a workforce management solution. As well as helping to schedule remote staff, our team have incorporated many more helpful features and tools to aid the entire operations of a company.

With over a decade of experience in the industry, these integrated features have been developed over time, understanding the true needs and requirements of our customer base. Now, with the addition of these intelligent tools, our digital systems can streamline operational processes, freeing up time and resources for management staff. Here, we highlight some of these handy operational features:


When working with home care clients, it is important to have an efficient invoicing system to ensure that your business receives the correct payment for the care it has provided. Using IQ:careplanner, it is possible to invoice clients directly for the care they have or are scheduled to receive.

Mileage Reporting

From contract cleaning to home care, keeping in control of the mileage travelled by remote staff is integral to keeping in control of your finances. A mileage calculation system is incorporated into IQ:timecard,  quickly generating mileage claim reports for your employees.

Risk Assessment

The risk assessment feature of IQ:careplanner makes it possible to create potential scenarios and the outcomes they could bring. With this information, these risk assessment reports can be included into the care plans that IQ:careplanner also generates.

Real Time Alerts

Efficiency is greatly improved with our real time alerts. Incorporated into IQ:timecard, it enables staff to stay connected to management, no matter where they may physically be. Externally, employees are notified of upcoming shifts and internally, management are also alerted when staff are late or have missed their scheduled shift. With this tool, it is also possible to send custom bulk messages to an entire workforce, keeping the whole team updated with urgent news.

Payroll Integration

IQ:careplanner offers real-time generation of time sheets and payroll data. In addition to this, it can integrate with other payroll systems such as Sage, Quickbooks and Xero. With this it ensures that payroll is accurate and based on actual shift pattern data, while also reducing time spent on office processing.

These are only five of the many operational features included within our IQ:timecard and IQ:careplanner software tools – you can discover the rest over on our website.
