PCS Acquires Oomph!


Person Centered Software, a Cow Corner portfolio business, has made an investment in Oomph!, the UK's number one wellbeing company for older adults.

The Oomph Wellness team provides various services, including training and support to staff in around 1200 care homes throughout the UK, to improve older adults' mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing. 
It's been nearly eight years since we first started working with Oomph, adding Oomph's activities into our digital care planning system to provide a way for joint customers to evidence resource use. But with the acquisition of Oomph, they can now move towards a seamless user experience.

With this acquisition, over 5000 care homes will now have access to a multi-functional digital platform providing a wide range of services, from clinical best practices to activity-based programmes created to help residents live longer, healthier, and happier lives.

The training we provide to care home staff over the last decade has focused on improving the lives of older people through delivering engaging, meaningful and highly impactful exercise classes and group activities.  The care sector is highly fragmented, and that fragmentation is unfortunately felt within the supplier sector too, which ultimately creates a poor experience for care workers. However, the partnership with PCS will provide a unique chance to offer a single interface to an ecosystem of services in a way that will make a real difference.

— Ben Allen, Oomph! Founder

Our mission at Person Centred Software is to improve the lives of those living and working within care home communities across the globe. Adding the Oomph product and team to the portfolio further drives us towards this goal. Oomph is another piece of the ecosystem of care jigsaw that focuses on the wellness of mind, body and soul.  By combining wellness and digital care, we will be uniquely positioned to bring an innovative, cutting-edge solution to the market that pushes wellness to the forefront of the agenda. In addition, combining care and wellness information will further enrich lives and provide insight and evidence into the impact wellness has on the care outcomes of people who live in care. It is a truly exciting opportunity, and we welcome the Oomph team into the PCS family
