Happy birthday Caren!

Becoming a teenager is a special moment. Team Caren from business unit Healthcare celebrated Caren’s tenth birthday yesterday. “Caren is growing rapidly. Over the past four years, the number of active users has grown from 20.000 to more than 309.000, ”said Alieke Graas, Support Engineer of Caren.

An inflatable obstacle course colored a former production room in the middle of the Nedap building in Groenlo. “Turning 10 is special and we wanted to celebrate it with a large children’s party to which we invited all of our colleagues. And in addition: a ‘treat’ on exercise fits perfectly with a business unit such as Healthcare.”

Caren is a care network for everyone who receives care or provides care. It gives clients, family and caregivers the opportunity to gain information from a client file online. Also, Caren makes communication accessible between care organizations, clients and their families, which makes care at a distance even easier. More than 53.000 logins are registered every day. Users are located worldwide. The potential to expand the functionalities is large, based on the collected data. But utilizing opportunities also requires enormous scalability when it comes to customer service. “Fortunately we work with systems that help us organizing feedback more directly, so we can set priorities more easily. In addition, it is essential not only to continue to improve and expand technology. We also need to be able to continuously scale up at the rear,” said Alieke. In the near future, there will be even more anticipation on ‘PGO’ legislation and customer needs.

So Caren turned 10 years old which is a milestone. We celebrated extensively with an obstacle course, cake, lemonade, garlands and balloons and we had a wonderful day. Now we already look forward to Caren’s Sweet 16 Party in 6 years!
