Tuesday, January 11, 2012. Over 750 public safety departments including Queen Anne’s County DES in Centreville, MD; Metro Emergency Transport System in Joplin, MO; Leduc Fire Services in Leduc, AB; New Boston Fire Dept. in New Boston, NH; and Sutton County EMS in Sonora, TX use EMS Manager or FIRE Manager to manage their workforce and employee scheduling. As budget cuts become more commonplace, organizations are choosing Aladtec’s online employee scheduling systems to cut costs through reducing scheduling errors, enforcing compliance and streamlining productivity.
In 2011, Aladtec added over 200 new public safety customers across the United States and Canada. Ranging from rural volunteer services to multi-station combination agencies, users of EMS Manager and FIRE Manager traded their paper and spreadsheet systems of employee scheduling for an online management system which can be accessed anytime and anywhere with an Internet connection. Aladtec uses state-of-the-art “cloud” technology to provide an integrated platform for employee scheduling, time and attendance, certification tracking, payroll reporting and other tools for effective workforce optimization.
“EMS Manager has been a great asset to our company. Prior to switching, we scheduled on paper and with nearly 80 employees with several different shifts, it was a challenge to stay updated. The latest system upgrade allowing us to view all scheduled events for the day in one view has been most helpful.” - EMS Director Jason Smith, Metro Emergency Transport System, Joplin, MO.
“Everything is running very nicely. Our staff has bought into the system and it has saved our captains significant time covering shifts.“ - Deputy Chief Shane Christensen, Leduc Fire Services, Leduc, AB.
“It has become very popular as our notification tool as well as for sharing information and scheduling...everyone likes it.“ - Fire Chief Dan MacDonald, New Boston Fire Department, New Boston, NH.
“Everything is going great with EMS manager. I really can't imagine trying to manage our service without it!“- EMS Director Dink Nichols, Sutton County EMS, Sonora, TX.
“EMS Manager eliminates the human-error factor we once had of under or over-staffing members or stations. We have always allowed shift swaps within the pay week, but some staff had trouble finding someone to switch. This is now an automated feature, and the system requires staff to adhere to the rules. EMS Manager is a proven tool we cannot afford to work without.” - EMS Sergeant Andrew Blackwood, Queen Anne’s County DES, Centreville, MD. “EMS Manager is more than a scheduling resource; there are forums, libraries and a member database allowing for easy staff interaction and information. The initial setup was easy and using it is a breeze. The program truly does what it is designed to do and we don’t know how we managed so long without it.” - Training Officer Bruce Hoffman, Ellington Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Ellington, CT.
