Fargo, ND - May 4, 2016 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. announced today that West View Borough Police Department has selected ScheduleAnywhere to streamline officer scheduling. The biggest challenge West View Borough Police Department had before making the switch to ScheduleAnywhere was the fact that a schedule is a living, breathing document, and required a lot of care and maintenance. Bruce A. Fromlak, Chief of Police in West View, was constantly changing and reposting the physical schedule. By implementing officer scheduling software, Chief Fromlak now finds scheduling easier and more adaptable to the constant changes of his department and staff.
"ScheduleAnywhere has taken the burden away as the schedule is live and always up to date, plus we are now able to message someone from within the program to advise them if their schedule has changed or notify part-time officers we need them to cover a shift," said Chief Fromlak.
While ScheduleAnywhere is simple to use, Chief Fromlak says that ScheduleAnywhere's extensive "how-to" scheduling videos were also helpful. While the staff took some time initially to adapt to the new scheduling system, within a few weeks everyone had adjusted to the new process for requesting time off and getting an update on who was working a given shift.
