Truman State University Adopts New Officer Scheduling Software
Campus security department simplifies officer scheduling with ScheduleAnywhere
Fargo, N.D. (August 27, 2018) – Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. announced today that the Truman State University Department of Public Safety, Kirksville, Mo., has selected ScheduleAnywhere as its officer scheduling solution. ScheduleAnywhere online employee scheduling software makes it possible to schedule and coordinate with officers from any computer or mobile device with internet access.
ScheduleAnywhere replaces the department’s existing officer scheduling method, which required the scheduler to create a spreadsheet, then e-mail it to officers. When schedule changes were made, the spreadsheet was manually updated and re-sent to employees.
“Schedule changes are frequent, so there were often many different copies of each schedule, and there was confusion over which was the most recent,” said Sergeant Jeremy Cordray. “Additionally, it was difficult to notify officers in a timely manner when their schedules changed or to know if they received the notification. With ScheduleAnywhere, the schedule is always up to date, and it notifies officers of changes in real time.”
ScheduleAnywhere allows administrators, officers and staff to access work schedules remotely to effectively communicate and manage scheduling needs. The software ensures proper shift coverage and fundamentally reduces scheduling errors and conflicts. ScheduleAnywhere also tracks certifications and training, manages shift rotations and staff availability, and cuts time spent on scheduling by up to 75 percent.
“We used to spend nearly six hours developing a schedule for each month,” said Cordray. “With ScheduleAnywhere, schedules can be copied and are created ahead of time, so all we need to do is post it online when we’re ready. This system has saved us a tremendous amount of time.”
ScheduleAnywhere is online employee scheduling software developed by Atlas Business Solutions. This Software as a Service (SaaS) works for any business that schedules shifts, including public safety, healthcare, energy, government, retail and business services. The software ensures proper shift coverage, eliminates scheduling conflicts, estimates payroll costs, tracks certifications and training, and manages shift rotations, staff availability, overtime and time-off requests.
