Blue Door Software announces new software for domestic abuse services


Blue Door Software announces the launch of DVOnline, an online case management system for domestic abuse refuge and outreach services.

Capable of managing all types of project work, from IDVA to target hardening and perpetrator programmes, for either refuge or outreach, the software has been designed for all types of domestic abuse services irrespective of the field of work.

DVOnline delivers a complete management system for support workers and service managers, providing the capability to capture, analyse and share information quickly and easily. In addition to this, DVOnline is a national database so services can opt-in to share information to provide regional insight into the demand for, and response to, service users presenting with dv issues. This gives services new opportunities to create local consortia, share best practice, develop common reporting frameworks, or aggregate data for statutory agencies.

We are very excited to be part of DVOnline in the North West. It will help us develop standard operating procedures for responding to and managing incoming referrals, and the data analysis will give us new insights across our service delivery portfolio.

Valerie Wise, Chief Executive of Preston Domestic Violence Services

With bank-grade security keeping data safe in secure UK data centres, DVOnline provides staff with instant access to information. Whether it is adding a new referral, updating a case with a new note, or reviewing the case list to identify cases in need of attention, DVOnline provides intuitive, task-focused screens to help staff work more efficiently, and ultimately provide a better engagement experience for the service users. Chronological views of case notes makes it easy to generate case reviews for agency meetings, and outcomes monitoring ensures that all services can demonstrate their social impact and strategic value.

Because all services using DVOnline in Lancashire will be recording information in the same way, we can all work together to drive service improvements across the region. We can now produce accurate stats about the geographic reach of our services, and provide the Police with updates of known perpetrator locations.

Debbie Springham, Blackburn & District Women’s Aid

Management information can be exported to a range of platforms, including Excel and Word and is customised by Blue Door to provide exactly the data that services need to produce for funders.

 More Information

To mark the launch of DVOnline, interested organisations can request a free 60-day trial or free onsite demonstration. Please contact our Product Manager, Chris Hill (

Student Services Goes Lite

We are pleased to announce the development of Caseworker Connect Student Services Lite.

The Lite edition contains the same great features of the Student Services Edition, but is designed specifically for smaller advice services.

If your student advice service:

  • has 3 or less advisers
  • does not have access to student data from registry sources and captures information about students at point of contact
  • needs affordable, predictable pricing
  • wants to access data, securely, from any internet enabled PC
  • doesn’t want the hassle of setting up and maintaining IT infrastructure to host a new system

But still needs the ability to record, report and share information about a range of advice and casework services, then Caseworker Connect Student Services Lite is for you.

  • The differences between the Lite and Standard Edition are:
  • Lite does not take a feed from Student Registry sources.
  • Lite bundles the Report Designer to create your management information
  • Lite is limited to 3 users
  • Lite is hosted on our servers.
  • Lite does not include ALF or Counselling modules
  • Lite is limited to 1500 text messages/year and 2GB of online storage for electronic documents
  • Lite is charged at a flat annual fee.

The Lite Edition costs £1800 per year (including all taxes, setup, hosting, backup and security), on a three year contract. Additional years may be added at the same rate for as long as you need.

To celebrate the launch of Lite, we are reducing the price of Lite to £1600 until 1 September 2012.

Create reports with the Caseworker Connect Report Designer

We are pleased to announce the imminent release of the Caseworker Connect Report Designer. The Report Designer empowers users to connect directly to their data and create, edit and share ad-hoc reports from the comfort of the desktop.

Reports can be saved and exported to a variety of formats, including PDF, Excel, Word, CSV and images formats. Reports can be viewed on-screen or printed, while easy-to-use Wizards make the process of creating reports extremely intuitive.

The Report Designer adds a new dimension of flexibility to our reporting solutions. It compliments perfectly the existing bundled reports and data sets that are already built to each customer’s requirements. The Report Designer is the ideal tool when organisations need additional insight or want the option to create their own reports.

The Report Designer is compatible with all versions of Caseworker and is available to all our customers, for free. The Report Designer will be bundled with all future versions of Caseworker.

The Report Designer is due for general release in Q3 2012. If you would like to trial the Designer now, contact us to register your interest and we will arrange to send you all the details
