Aladtec Launches New Release for Online Scheduling and Workforce Management Product Line

Press Release Sep 07, 2012

St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN - August 30, 2012 - Aladtec, a leader in online scheduling and workforce management products for the public safety sector, has just released an update with many visual and functional changes which make the system more flexible and easier to use.  

“I find the changes to EMS Manager extremely user friendly. I have had great feedback from non-administrators about how much they like the new update,” shares Crystal Duckett, Scheduling Coordinator/Shift Supervisor, McCormick County emergency Services, McCormick, South Carolina.

These updates to EMS Manager, FIRE Manager and Zanager have simplified the system for non-administrator users by consolidating functionality into the “My Schedule” page.  Aladtec also improved the way the “Availability” feature works allowing for greater flexibility.  For administrators, upgrades also include more information on the “Work Schedule” views and a variety of messaging options have been added to the system.

“The messaging feature allows me to target just the members of the department who actively participate in our fill-in schedule.  If I need to get a quick message to those members, I can send out a message and they’ll receive it either as a text or email, depending on their own preferences,” says Meredith Shelton, Business Manager, Fitchburg Fire Department, Fitchburg, Wisconsin and Vice President of the Wisconsin Fire Service Administrative Association.

Aladtec prides themselves on listening to customer feedback and requests to better enhance their online scheduling and workforce management products.  New upgrades are always free to their customers and beta testing is done to assure the product roll-out is successful.

“As always what you get out of a system is what you put into it.  We had our first large scale test of the capacity of FIRE Manager when we opened up signups for our staffing related to the North Carolina State Fair.  What used to take us weeks to figure out staffing for was done in less than 30 minutes,” indicates Shevais M. Shrum, Lieutenant, Western Wake Fire Rescue, Raleigh, North Carolina.

It seems that every organization has a vision statement. As a speaker, when visiting groups of leaders, I often ask: “Who has a vision statement for their organization?” A flurry of hands usually go up. However, the next question stuns the room: “Who can come up here and recite it for me?” As you can imagine, not many volunteer for that request.
