March 5, 2013 - Moberly, MO - The stress of having open shifts for extended periods of time, potentially leaving a shift uncovered, constantly juggling trades - along with time off requests - were all motivating factors for the administrators of the Randolph County Ambulance District in Missouri to switch to an online employee scheduling and workforce management system.
“We do save a lot of time, but the savings in time doesn’t compare to the stress reduction from scheduling the old way - on a calendar. It also seems that call-ins or vacation requests always happen when you’re not at work. EMS Manager drastically reduces the amount of calling, and the time it was taking, to cover a last minute opening,” says Chad LaMonda, EMT-P/Assistant Superintendent, Randolph County Ambulance District. “Now I can even create and change the schedule from my mobile phone or tablet; I don’t have to be at work to do it.”
LaMonda also indicates EMS Manager’s mobile web app is not only very handy, but it provides some of their less computer savvy personnel comfort because they don’t view the system as a complicated online software program - but rather another daily app they use. The mobility of the EMS Manager employee scheduling and workforce management system allows Randolph County Ambulance District’s 20 full-time and 20 part-time staff members the flexibility of viewing their schedule, requesting time off and checking the event calendar from anywhere they happen to be.
Aladtec’s EMS Manager is conveniently available as an annual subscription with no equipment requirements or set up fees. The yearly investment includes all training, technical support and future system updates. Since the fee is based on the number of people using the system at each service, it’s affordable for any size agency. “With the fee structure I feel that your system is in reach for any district or company. It offers the customer the ability to opt out at any time if they need to, and the free trial allows administrators to try it before they commit to anything. One of our employees suggested EMS Manager because he was using it at the medical center he also works at,” shares LaMonda. “They were impressed with the system, and we were too, so we didn’t have to shop around at all!”
Located in the Northeast corner of Missouri, the Randolph County Ambulance District is headquartered in Moberly. This agency serves approximately 15,000 residents, providing 24 hour coverage with four crews.
