El Dorado County Probation Implements ScheduleAnywhere Staff Scheduling App

California County Probation Department adds new app to improve staff scheduling

Shingle Springs - CA, June 11, 2018

Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. has announced that El Dorado County Probation of Shingle Springs, CA has selected ScheduleAnywhere as their staff scheduling solution.

 

“Our previous scheduling method was kept in one paper calendar, which did not have a backup,” says Supervising Deputy Probation Officer Kyle Heller. “There was no online or shared capabilities, prohibiting staff and supervisors from keeping a ‘live’ version of the schedule updated without having physical access to our scheduling calendar. Also, being a physical, paper schedule, the calendar would often need to be replaced and rewritten after continual use by employees.”

 

ScheduleAnywhere has allowed employees to check their schedules, request time off, and review coverage/staffing needs from anyplace in the world. With ScheduleAnywhere, schedules can easily be shared with other divisions giving the department the ability to have an up-to-date, live look at which employees are on shift, in what location, and who is available for coverage needs without being restricted to being on the department's internal network. ScheduleAnywhere has improved the requesting and tracking of time off and training through use of the software’s internal reporting options.

 

When asked about how the staff has adjusted to the change to ScheduleAnywhere, Officer Heller replies, “The response from staff has been excellent. They appreciate the ability to request time off remotely, check their schedules when they are out of the workplace, the ability to access the schedule from mobile devices, and the ability to plan into the future.”

 

Officer Heller concludes, “We appreciate ScheduleAnywhere's flexibility and support as we implemented the software into our department. The team of professionals from ScheduleAnywhere has been continually supportive and extremely responsive to our needs and questions.”
