Fargo, ND - July 14, 2016 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. today announced that Venango County Prison in Pennsylvania has implemented ScheduleAnywhere to schedules its prison guards and staff.
When it comes to staffing a prison, there are many requirements to consider. Having enough employees on each shift is only part of the equation. Prisons must also have the right breakdown of male and female employees to adequately staff all units. This unique need poses more scheduling challenges for jails. Now, Venango County Prison has found a solution to solve these challenges and needs with a new prison scheduling software.
Before launching ScheduleAnywhere, Venango County Prison was using PC-based staff scheduling software. In this software, there wasn't a way to copy a schedule, making the process time intensive and burdensome. The software wasn't able to count employees or separate males and females either. This is essential to the daily operations at the prison.
To solve these needs, Venango County Prison made the switch to ScheduleAnywhere, a cloud-based scheduling software from Atlas Business Solutions. The software has all of the functionality Venango County Prison was looking for.
"I like the copy schedule method and also the way it counts for you," said Lieutenant James McCall.
"I also like that it is web based so the employees can log on from home if they wish."
Because everything is housed in the cloud, schedules are accessible anywhere, anytime. Having this flexibility is a benefit to employees. Pair this with the way it saves time in daily operations and it's clear to see how Venango County Prison has improved their processes and has saved time after switching to the new software.
