Conewago Township Police Deploy New Officer Scheduling App

ScheduleAnywhere improves staff scheduling for Pennsylvania police department.

Hanover - Pennsylvania, September 06, 2017

Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. has announced that Conewago Township Police have chosen and implemented ScheduleAnywhere as their staff scheduling solution.

For years, the officers and staff of the Conewago Township Police Department had a physical copy of the schedule hanging in the station. This was the only place where the most current schedule could be found, requiring officers and staff to be in the office to view it.

In 2016, the police department discovered ScheduleAnywhere, an online scheduling software application. After making the decision to break away from having the schedule entirely on paper, the department started working with ScheduleAnywhere to bring the software to the department with full implementation in 2017. The staff scheduling software is now fully implemented giving everyone on the patrol access to the most current schedule anywhere, anytime.

The staff has responded positively to the new scheduling software. Specifically, they appreciate the real-time updates and having the availability to view the most current copy of the schedule 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Whether they're in their patrol unit or at home with their families, they're able to see their upcoming shifts by logging into the ScheduleAnywhere web site or using the free ScheduleAnywhere mobile app.

Chief McCoy has also used a variety of the additional features when making the schedule. Specifically, he has saved time by using the built-in reports included in ScheduleAnywhere.

"I can keep track of overtime better with the reporting functions within the program," Chief McCoy said.

Within ScheduleAnywhere, Chief McCoy is able to see the number of hours each of his officers and staff are scheduled, as well as time off requests, sick days, how many times each person has been scheduled a specific shift, and more.

Throughout the implementation period, Chief McCoy and his team were grateful to the ScheduleAnywhere staff for their help in getting set up and deploying the software, making the transition from an antiquated scheduling system to their new scheduling software easy and painless.
