Fargo, ND - February 23, 2016 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. announced the Randolph County Emergency Services department chose ScheduleAnywhere to eliminate the paper trail of requests and make scheduling more efficient. Until October 2015, the emergency services center had used spreadsheets and shift swap sheets in paper-form to make the schedule. Now, they're using this 911 dispatch scheduling software to ease the many headaches that came with this approach.
The biggest challenge Randolph County Emergency Services saw before making the switch to ScheduleAnywhere was formatting. Each new month in the spreadsheet was burdensome to create because the first started on a different day each month. As the paper leave requests and shift swap forms accumulated on the desks of schedulers, it became more difficult to track.
Now, the services center enjoys adding shifts to pre-made monthly forms ahead of time, dramatically reducing their formatting times. Online schedule and leave requests eliminate the need for a paper trail. Part-time employees can also see when there is a shift opening and schedule themselves into work. Supervisors get the same luxury of seeing their staffing levels so they can plan and cover shifts accordingly. This, "...saves a lot of headache versus calling each person individually," according to the assistant 911 Communications Supervisor, Captain Keena Heaton. When it's time for evaluations, the team uses the software to go back and see how often a person called in sick or took leave.
The entire staff has had a very positive reaction to the new software. They appreciate the convenience of viewing their schedule from a phone or tablet. Getting started was fast and easy with the help of the ScheduleAnywhere team.
