Fargo, ND - August 16, 2016 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. announced today the Psychiatric Emergency Response Team (PERT) of San Diego, California is now using ScheduleAnywhere as the staff scheduling application for their team.
PERT pairs specially trained officers and deputies who collaborate together with licensed mental health professionals to respond to people experiencing a mental health related crisis. Having the right teams in place to respond when needed is vital. In the past, PERT would schedule their staff and teams using a calendar template in a Microsoft Word document. As their staff grew, this template was no longer large enough to hold all of the employees so they started looking for a new scheduling method.
In April 2016, PERT first began using ScheduleAnywhere as its first responder scheduling app. Not only does this app allow staff to see their schedule without using a magnifying glass, but it also has different features the team needs. The view features make it easy to keep track of the staff. The time off request feature makes approving vacations faster and easier, all while ensuring proper staff coverage.
"It now takes me less time to complete the schedule. The program is easy to use," commented Melissa Erbe, Office Manager for PERT.
"It has improved my work immensely," Erbe says.
Since implementing ScheduleAnywhere, the entire team has offered positive feedback about using the app. Erbe and the entire team have appreciated the customer service they have received from the call center. This has made implementing ScheduleAnywhere into their office procedures faster and easier.

About the Psychiatric Emergency Response
The Psychiatric Emergency Response Teams (PERT) consist of specially trained officers and deputies who are paired with licensed mental health professionals. Together, they respond on-scene to situations involving people who are experiencing a mental health related crisis and have come to the attention of law enforcement. The goal is to provide the most appropriate resolution to the crisis by linking people to the least restrictive level of care and to help prevent the unnecessary incarceration or hospitalization of those seen. PERT's primary purposes are to provide clinical support to law enforcement and the community for dispatch calls involving persons having a mental health crisis, education and training to law enforcement on mental health issues, and support persons and collaboration between law enforcement and the mental health system of care.
