FARGO, ND - February 15, 2012 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. (ABS) announced today that Villa Maria of Fargo, North Dakota, a member of the Sisters of Mary of the Presentation Health System, is now using ScheduleAnywhere to schedule its entire nursing and support staff of around 225 employees. Villa Maria had been using ScheduleAnywhere to schedule its 175 nurses, but is now using ScheduleAnywhere to schedule an additional 50 dietary staff, plus track skills and certifications.
Proven Nurse Scheduling Software
Villa Maria has been using ScheduleAnywhere to schedules its nursing staff since 2008. Prior to implementation, nurses at Villa Maria were scheduled using an Excel spreadsheet. This process proved time consuming, cumbersome and error prone for nurse managers and nurses. For over three years, Villa Maria has been using ABS's nurse scheduling software and it's proven invaluable. This online nurse scheduling software has streamlined the staff scheduling process and allowed nurses to view schedules and make requests online.
Tracking Skills and Certifications
Villa Maria is now using ScheduleAnywhere for tracking employee skills and certifications. "Not only has ScheduleAnywhere greatly improved our staff scheduling and shift management process, we are now utilizing ScheduleAnywhere for our skills and certifications tracking," said Darcy Schenck, Director of Finance for Villa Maria. "We used to track this information on paper and in Excel, which made it difficult to manage."
ScheduleAnywhere allows users to create and track an unlimited number of skills, certifications, training, and other important employee-specific attributes. Effective dates and expiration dates can be tracked in ScheduleAnywhere and managers are automatically alerted prior to expiration. This helps facilities maintain compliance and reduce liability.
