Fargo, ND - March 29, 2016 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. announced today that the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office in Willmar, Minnesota has selected ScheduleAnywhere for its employee scheduling needs. In the past, the Sheriff's Office used Microsoft Excel to schedule deputies and staff, but found it challenging and frustrating.
"The issue we were having was that if one person had the schedule open in Excel no one else could make changes to the schedule," said Lieutenant Kevin Kleinschmidt. "With Excel, everything had to be manually typed into the schedule and if you want to look forward to a date on the schedule you had to keep scrolling until you reached the date you were looking for. Also, you could only view the schedule from work and, if the server for some reason was down, the schedule was not inaccessible."
Lieutenant Kleinschmidt said that since the team began using ScheduleAnywhere as its public safety officer scheduling software, these issues have been resolved. He also likes the time-saving features for scheduling training, sick leave, and vacations.
"Our staff immediately thought using ScheduleAnywhere was one of the best improvements the Sheriff's Office has made. The staff really like that you can view the schedule from anywhere, even from a mobile phone."
Sheriff Daniel Hartog was also impressed with ScheduleAnywhere. Sheriff Hartog liked the ease of putting together rosters with ScheduleAnywhere so much, he referred the software to a local police department, who is now using it.
