Fargo, ND - July 5, 2016 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc, announced today that Ho-Ho-Kus Police Department in Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey has implemented ScheduleAnywhere as its officer scheduling software.
Juggling shifts and maintaining a full roster, as police departments must do, can be a scheduling nightmare. There are vacation days and sick days to take into consideration. If those change once a schedule is made, it can cause plenty of administrative headaches. That was the case for the Ho-Ho-Kus Police Department, until they switched to the police scheduling app, ScheduleAnywhere.
Prior to switching, Ho-Ho-Kus Police Department was using an old piece of software to make and manage the schedule. This software made it difficult to keep the schedule up-to-date with the latest changes. Anytime a schedule request was made, Sergeant LaCroix had to approve the request (even on his days off) and make sure the changes were updated on the schedule at headquarters.
ScheduleAnywhere changed that process dramatically. This cloud-based app, developed by Atlas Business Solutions, allows officers and staff to access the most current schedule from anywhere they have any Internet connection. For Sergeant LaCroix, approving schedule requests has become much faster too. Everything can be done within the app, which saves him time and administrative hassle.
"When they want a shift off at the last minute, now they can just look online, instead of calling headquarters to see if anyone is off that particular day. Plus, they find it extremely helpful to be able to view the schedule for the whole year instead of month to month," said Sergeant LaCroix.
It only took Sergeant LaCroix an hour to set up and a day or two to feel at ease with the new system. The help from ScheduleAnywhere and the video tutorials helped tremendously.
