Fargo, ND - April 8, 2016 - Atlas Business
Solutions, Inc. announced today that Windham Police Department in
Windham, Maine, has selected ScheduleAnywhere
for its officer scheduling
software. According to Windham's Chief of Police, Kevin L.
Schofield, the department's scheduling system consisted of an array
of papers and binders prior to using ScheduleAnywhere.
ScheduleAnywhere is a cloud-based employee scheduling platform that allows managers and staff to access work schedules online from any browser or mobile device. It includes tools for building schedules quickly and easily and tools for communicating with staff. ScheduleAnywhere can be used to send outbound text messages and email messages instantly.
"Filling various open shifts and details required numerous phone calls and delays in waiting for return calls causing hours of work for our supervisors," Chief Schofield said. "Implementing ScheduleAnywhere has eliminated the paper previously used in scheduling."
In addition to managing scheduling and communication, ScheduleAnywhere can be used for managing time-off requests online. Staff can submit requests 24/7/365 and track their requests and look for schedule changes.
According to Chief Schofield, "Officers have embraced accessing the schedule remotely and submitting time-off requests online. ScheduleAnywhere is a cost effective way to increase efficiencies and provide essential documentation of schedules."
