Transform the way you work…Positive outcomes for your employees and care business
e-Tools has a strong focus on providing the Australian care provider with easy to use software applications that improve administrative efficiency and help you stay on top of compliance requirements.
With a background of over 30 years in aged care management and consultancy, Managing Director and founder David Powis had a rare insight into the everyday challenges of managing an aged care business. In response to the needs of the industry, David created a software company that focused solely on enhancing the administrative efficiency of the business. This saw the inception of e-Tools, with its pioneer residential agreement software application, eRA (electronic Resident Agreement), the first of its kind in Australia.
Today, e-Tools delivers 9 software applications spanning across residential care, home care, home support and disability services. With an experienced team of Software Developers, Client Support Staff, State Managers and Business Managers, we strive to maintain the high standards that our clients have come to trust, whilst we continue to develop and refine our software applications. Our Managers are hands-on and get actively involved in your business, providing ongoing support to help you meet your goals, as we understand the nature of a highly regulated and constantly evolving industry.
e-Tools is all about supporting your care business; by automating your administration processes so you can manage your business more efficiently, and focus on your business of caring. Our unique and flexible “One App, One Task” model enables you to build your own solution. Each application works independently to effectively manage one specific task. However, where common data is shared, the applications connect for easy data transfer. More apps, more power!
With 16 years of experience developing software, our applications are trusted by providers across all levels of Australian aged care.
Novacare Inc is a community aged care provider and as such needs to comply with the legislative requirements for Police Checks on its staff. Prior to using ePC this was done using a spreadsheet and a diary. ePC has provided Novacare with an integrated solution that allows us to track Police certificates, follow up when they are due for renewal, generate forms and even scan the certificates into the system for easy retrieval. The software integrates seamlessly into windows with reminders on the Taskbar. Using ePC has made the task of ensuring compliance with the legislation a whole lot easier for Novacare.

We have been using NeRA Resident Agreements for 2 years and find the system a great comfort and time saver. We no longer have to monitor and update manual documents and document control systems for legislation, fee and other changes. The updated feature covers all that for us with the added benefit that the legal aspects are monitored by John Hogan and Associates. An agreement take about 10 minutes at most to create, it provides automatic storage and it is easy to revisit and make adjustments if necessary. Residents find the wording clear and the description of terms to be easily understandable. The system has significant and clear advantages over our previous internal "manual" process and we find it excellent value for money.

Woolgoolga Aged Care Centre is a 64 bed not for profit, community owned Aged Care Facility in the small community of Woolgoolga on the mid north coast of provide low care, high care and respite residential aged care. We also have 30 independent living units and operate with a small Management team with limited administrative assistance. Approximately 12 months ago we began using e-Tools Electronic Resident Agreements which we found to be an excellent product, saving time and eliminating administrative errors. When e-Tools introduced the Electronic Bond Register software, we had no hesitation in using this product. Prior to using eRAD I was using Excel as our bond register, whilst an accurate record was kept, it was a cumbersome and time consuming process each month. The eRAD is also an excellent product and I would highly recommend use by any aged care facility holding Aged Care Accommodation Bonds. Support from the team at e-Tools is also excellent. Their response to requests for assistance is done in a timely and courteous manner. Thank-you to all the staff at e-Tools, you have produced and support two great products.
