As a member of the customer success team in my time here I’ve been uniquely positioned to receive feedback directly from our customers, one question that came up is whether you can use coreplus on smartphones and tablets.

We haven’t released a native or hybrid app on these devices to date.  This blog will speak to why.

One benefit of a mobile application is the ability to be able to use coreplus on a small smartphone screen just as you would with something like facebook or twitter and this can be useful when you’re out and about.

However, operating a health business requires more from software in terms of functions, features and privacy that can be hard to squeeze into a small smart phone screen size.  It’s not to say that it’s not a good idea for some functions (and we’re looking into this as part of our product road map), it’s just that not everything is best squeezed into a small screen for usability purposes.

A big part of our system design has always been that it’s accessible through a simple browser and doesn’t need to be downloaded or installed on the hardware it’s used on.  This means you can use coreplus on any web browser and on any device (that’s right, even a small screen smartphone) without the need to install a dedicated app.

In order to keep this benefit, we remain focused on improving our existing interface to make it usable on any device via an internet browser (although we love chrome just quietly!).

A large percentage of modern practitioners spend their days moving between premises and seeing clients remotely and we want to be able to offer full usage of coreplus no matter where you are or what device you’re using.

Your best experience is going to be on a laptop or tablet styled device for portability and screen size.  If you have touch screen that’s great also (NB: coreplus also supports dictation software such as Dragon).

If you’ve seen our latest user interface you’ll experience what we mean, but this is only the beginning.  So hopefully you’re enjoying our new and improved modern and mobile friendly interface.

Thanks for reading this, let me know in the comments if you enjoyed it or have any questions or feedback.

Also, I strongly encourage you to read about our Ideas/ Suggestions portal in this great blog written by our Chief Product Owner, Steven Whittington.  It’s a great way for you to get involved in shaping coreplus’ product going forward as we’re doing this for you and we value your feedback and involvement.

And finally, as always, if you need any assistance in trialling or using coreplus to manage your modern health practice you can get in touch with me or one of my great team mates via support@coreplus.com.au or as always feel free to give us a call on 1300 66 89 88.
