Each question is scored between 0 and 1 with the best answer scoring 1 and the worst scoring 0. Some questions will have a wider range of answers, and these will score in between e.g. 0.5. The scores for each question are added up and shown as a percentage of the best possible score relevant for the area – if any questions are excluded or answered as “N/A” then these will be excluded from the scoring.

Can I share information with people who don’t have the app?


Yes, historical reports, monthly organisation PDF reports, and monthly area PDF reports can be shared via your device, or directly emailed to your registered email address. To do this, click the share icon in the top right corner in the mobile app.

From the Web Portal, you can also download PDFs of these reports, as well as export your list of actions. Additionally, the Analytics Dashboards in the Web Portal also allows you to export individual charts and their data as CSV, PDF, PowerPoint, or Word documents.

Help, the app isn’t working! What should I do?


This could be for a variety of reasons, try the following:

  1. Check your internet connection – you need an internet connection to start and submit an inspection as well as view reports.
  2. Check you are using a version of the app that is compatible with your device. You may need to update your operating system or download the latest version of the app.
  3. Make sure you’ve given the Tendable app permission to access your camera and location.
  4. Clear the cache (under Settings > Advanced settings).

Relaunch the app (close it down completely then relaunch).

Do I have to be connected to the internet when using the Tendable app?


The Tendable app has been designed to work while connected to the internet, sharing live data with other users within your organisation. However, if you lose internet connection suddenly during an inspection, don’t worry. You can still complete the inspection and save it as a draft. Inspection drafts can be cached to an individual device if internet is not available. Once you reconnect to the internet, you can upload and submit your inspection.

Can I share a device with another user?


Yes! As long as you have separate login credentials, you can both use the same device to log into Tendable at different times.

Why have I been logged out?


For the purposes of information security, your login will be timed out after a period of inactivity. Simply enter your password to log in again.

You can also choose to log out at this point, but that will lead to any in-progress or unsaved work being lost, with the exception of an unfinished inspection, which will automatically be saved as a draft on your device.

Can I log in on more than one device at once?


Yes you can, and you can do so without worrying that information will be lost. Actions you can perform in the app, such as adding inspection data, adding details to actions, saving drafts, etc. are all handled server-side. This means that as long as you’re connected to the internet, data should be accessible across devices you’re logged into.

I’ve forgotten my password, what do I do?


Select Forgot your password? on the login screen and you will be prompted to enter your email so that a password reset link can be sent to you. Once you receive the email, follow the link to reset your password.

Why has your name changed from Perfect Ward?


Over the past 6 years, Perfect Ward has grown from an app developed in one acute hospital in the south of England, to a solution used across three different continents in a wide range of health and social care organisations. Even in an acute hospital, the name “Perfect Ward” didn’t accurately describe what we do, because the solution can also be used for a whole range of applications for quality assurance and improvement beyond the ward. For example Care Homes, Emergency Departments, Theatres, Outpatients Clinics and any setting where you may want to assure and improve quality. For that reason, and to further support our expanding use cases and global community, we are becoming Tendable on 1 st December 2021.

Where did Tendable come from?


We have been working with our brand agency to create our new brand identity. A range of customers, partners and our internal team were interviewed to get under the skin of how people think about our solutions and how we operate as an organisation. This research culminated in a very clear distillation of what we stand for and how we want to be seen by our customers and wider community. We are delighted with our new name: Tendable.

Is Tendable a real word?


No, Tendable is an invented word however it conveys the meaning behind our organisation that we are human, approachable, professional and operate with energy. We put our customers at the heart of everything we do and strive to continuously raise the bar of quality improvement in all areas we work.

How is Tendable different to Perfect Ward?


Tendable is an evolution and now offers customers an enterprise solution from the frontline to the board across three core areas:

  1. Auditing and accreditation – the app
  2. Quality improvement – action planning and resolution
  3. Quality assurance and risk management – data analysis and insights

As a current customer what do I need to do?


As a valued customer, you are a member of an increasingly diverse and expanding global community. This is the driving force for changing our name to Tendable. Our name is changing, our commitment to outstanding service and support remains constant. Key points for you to look out for and share with your team are:

  • You will need to ensure you have the latest version of the new app, so download from the App Store or Google Play Store to your mobile device. If you have a business device the update may be sent via your IT team.
