Fargo, ND - September 6, 2016 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc, announced today that Clarke County Sheriff's Office in Berryville, Virginia has chosen ScheduleAnywhere as their deputy scheduling software.
Receiving, tracking and implementing shifts and time off requests within the Clarke County Sheriff's Office used to be cumbersome. The law enforcement agency used a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to create the schedule. Any time someone would submit a request for days off, the schedule would need to be updated and new copies would need to be made. Then, all of the affected parties would need to be emailed. Every small request meant a lot of extra administrative time and hassle.
This hassle led Chief Deputy Travis M. Sumption to reach out to his fellow agencies asking for recommendations for law enforcement scheduling apps. He knew there had to be a better way. After testing several different apps, Chief Deputy Sumption chose ScheduleAnywhere, from Atlas Business Solutions, as the best fit for his team.
ScheduleAnywhere is all user defined, which is what ultimately made Chief Deputy Sumption choose this software over others. He liked that he could modify anything on the schedule from anywhere he had internet access. The system is intuitive. Within one hour of using ScheduleAnywhere, Chief Deputy Sumption had an entire year's schedule completed.
One concern about making the switch was how well it would be adapted by his team. After showing the officers the benefits to using the app, they were on board with the new scheduling method.
"I don't get the phone calls anymore asking about shift changes or who is working which shift," Chief Deputy Sumption said.
Now, ScheduleAnywhere is installed on each of the officer's smartphones, the desktop computers and on the computers in their work vehicles. His team appreciates knowing when they have to work without doubting whether they have the most current schedule. They also love having the flexibility to make requests and access it from anywhere.
