Disability Huntingdonshire

Without Breathe, we would be completely snowed under. Now we can focus on what's most important”

The challenge

Disability Huntingdonshire is a charity based on the outskirts of Cambridge, and has 20 years of experience in helping disabled people by providing valuable information, advice and support. Operating in Huntingdonshire and South Cambridgeshire, they also specialise in providing benefit advice and advocacy for disabled people and their carers.

Even with a small team of just 1-10 employees, CEO Jennifer was facing the inevitable downfalls of manual HR methods, with endless amounts of stray paper, complicated processes, not enough data security and ultimately losing out on valuable time. There came a point of realisation: who actually has the time for all of this tedious admin? Jennifer came to the conclusion she could no longer be snowed in with paper and decided something had to change. She started looking for a better way.

The solution

Jennifer began exploring charity software and came across the Breathe website. We offer a 50% lifetime discount on our full range of services for charities, so this was a no-brainer for Jennifer. She went ahead and took out a free trial, which requires no card details and is available to cancel any time.

After starting her free trial, Jennifer quickly became familiar with the software after a helping hand from the Breathe support team. Some of the Breathe features quickly revolutionised her HR processes, particularly the intuitive holiday, sickness and expense management tools. Jennifer finally felt like she had control over her HR admin. She loved how easy it is to track important employee information.

The result

Now, Disability Huntingdonshire has been with Breathe for over a year and are reaping the benefits of a straight forward, streamlined and paperless HR system. Jennifer has full visibility of her employees at a click of a button – being cloud software, Breathe is accessible 24/7 from any device.

Using Breathe has enabled staff at Disability Huntingdonshire to focus on much more important tasks, such as being able to work on vital caseworker tasks rather than time consuming HR admin. Needless to say, this is a huge deal for the charity’s employees as it enables them to focus on what is most important – providing support to those who need it and making a difference.
