Ben Allen, the 2012 Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year has chosen Sage One Accounts for his high growth social business The Oomph which runs therapy provision for 500+ care homes on a monthly basis reaching 15,000+ residents.
Not only that but his team are using the Sage One API to develop an integration into their existing systems which will help improve cashflow in the business by speeding up invoices and transactions.
We invited Ben and his lead developer Eddie up to Sage HQ to meet the Sage One team today so they could gain a better understanding of how the Sage One service can support his business.
Why we’re excited that The Oomph are working with us
Ben is a fantastic ambassador for young entrepreneurs and small businesses throughout the UK and is one of the most impressive and inspiring individuals I had the pleasure of meeting during my time at Shell LiveWIRE. As a role model for other British start-ups we’re excited that he’s chosen us and look forward to working with him closely over the coming months and years.
In Ben’s own words:
“All of our services are designed to enhance quality of life, create social inclusion and reduce falls. We have also franchised into Hong Kong and are currently looking at further international franchise opportunities.
Oomph has achieved considerable success since incorporating in April 2011. Oomph has won a number of awards including UnLtd Level 2 Award (For Outstanding Social Entrepreneurs), UnLtd High Growth Award (For Social Entrepreneurs Planning to Scale Rapidly) and the Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2012. Oomph has also recently been shortlisted for Social Business of the Year.
At Oomph we believe in doing things a little differently, our business is special in many ways. From our focus on employing young unemployed individuals with big hearts to the way we analyse success. Oomph has many international partners, at Oomph we are in the process of creating an international platform for sharing best practice within the international care sector.”
