FARGO, ND - March 19, 2013 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. (ABS) announced today that Common Ground, a nonprofit agency located in Oakland County, Michigan, has selected ScheduleAnywhere as their online staff scheduling software for 60 counselors, nurses and recovery coaches across six mental health facilities in suburban Detroit.
"Common Ground needed a staff scheduling software program that was simple, customizable, and ended our reliance on phone calls to fill vacant shifts," says Heather Visingardi, Vice President of Programs & Services for Common Grounds. Common Ground uses ScheduleAnywhere to prepare work schedules and communicate shift schedules online. Managers use ScheduleAnywhere to communicate staffing needs, such as open shifts, through its built-in employee text messaging and email system.
"ScheduleAnywhere was the perfect solution and we are seeing immediate benefit. The support team has been tremendously valuable in helping us wean from our old paper-based staff scheduling process," said Visingardi. Prior to using ScheduleAnywhere, Common Ground managers used to call service providers to see if they were available to work. This process was tedious and time consuming. ScheduleAnywhere has eliminated this manual process and streamlined communication between managers and employees.
