Fargo, ND - July 26, 2016 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. today announced that Pepper Pike Police Department is now scheduling its officers with ScheduleAnywhere. The department has seen a significant decrease in the amount of paper they use every day after switching. In March 2016, the police department made the switch from printed Excel spreadsheets to the new online scheduling app, which is used to schedule police officers. What used to fill the office with print outs and posted papers is now gone thanks to their new scheduling method.
Police departments cannot afford to be understaffed. If a police officer misses a shift, the entire team and community suffers. But with the paper scheduling system used previously by Pepper Pike Police Department, ensuring all officers had the most recent schedule was tricky. Many officers made copies of the printed schedule to take home so they could schedule their time off of work. Still, the schedule would change constantly, making the printouts inaccurate and making it harder for officers to plan their vacations.
All of this printing and copying was costing the department money. After moving away from the wasteful paper printing and onto an app, the department has saved money while allowing officers to balance their personal and professional schedules better.
"No more waste of paper printing the schedule," Chief of Police, Joe Mariola said.
"Officers are able to view it 24 hours a day from any location they have Internet access."
Chief Mariola believes every single one of his officers has downloaded the ScheduleAnywhere app and uses it on a regular basis. He has only heard positive feedback, which gives him every reason to believe the new scheduling system is working well for everyone.
