Fargo, ND - April 18, 2017 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. announced today that Denison Police Department has implemented a new officer scheduling system, ScheduleAnywhere.
ScheduleAnywhere is an online scheduling app that enables police officers to check their shifts and assignments, even when they're not in the station. Previously, the schedule was kept in a shared drive and printed out to be posted in the work areas for both the dispatchers and officers. This system made it impossible to see the schedule or make changes remotely. Each month, a new schedule had to be made, so the dispatchers and officers had a harder time knowing what their shifts would be weeks in advance.
Since implementation began in mid-December 2016, the scheduling system alleviated the pain points the station experienced. Now, the officers and staff on the Denison Police Department are enjoying the ability to plan further ahead.
"They like having a schedule built further into the future, as well as having the ability to check it from their phones," said Chief of Police, Dan Schaffer.
With the ScheduleAnywhere app, the dispatchers and officers are able to quickly project future schedules. If any changes are needed, they can do this from a any computer with Internet access. This means they're always working on the real-time schedule instead of running into the common administrative headaches that go along with having a paper schedule in the office.
Another important component of ScheduleAnywhere is the ability to list assignments directly in the schedule. This way, there's never confusion about where each person needs to be on any given day. The app has made this easier than it was with the paper-based system.
Overall, having ScheduleAnywhere has saved the officers and dispatchers time while improving visibility of the upcoming shifts.
