Aladtec’s EMS Manager Helps Western Berks EMS Reduce Overtime Costs by 50%
Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN - August 29, 2012 - It’s difficult for many public service agencies to spend funds on anything beyond the mandatory necessities to run a department, especially these days. However, Western Berks EMS (Reading, PA) is a prime example of how spending a relatively small amount saves many thousands of dollars every year and pays for itself many times over.
“Our overtime has been cut by 50% since we started using EMS Manager a year ago. Our OT went from 4,000 hours last year to 2,000 this year. That is a huge financial savings for our agency,” says Anthony Tucci, Deputy Chief, Western Berks EMS, Reading, Pennsylvania.
Tucci indicates in addition to saving his department financially, EMS Manager also saves them time. For an agency covering 192 square miles, and averaging 15,000 calls annually, time is valuable. “Scheduling is much faster for our 100 members and EMS Manager is easy to use. We have a number of employees who aren’t computer savvy and they became accustomed to this system very quickly,” Tucci adds.
Aladtec’s EMS Manager recently became even easier to use with the launch of a new update. “I really like the changes to the “My Schedule” view. You can see your schedule, Open Shifts and the Events Calendar all in one place,” explains Tucci.
