Amery Police Department Implements New Officer Scheduling App

Wisconsin police department simplifies officer scheduling process with ScheduleAnywhere

Amery - WI, February 12, 2018

Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. has announce that Amery Police Department of Amery, WI has chosen and implemented ScheduleAnywhere as their staff scheduling solution.


Prior to adding the officer and staff scheduling app, the department schedule was kept on one computer and printed out to be posted in the work areas and shared with each officer. Officers and staff either carried a copy with them or had to be at the station to view the schedule. This posed challenges as changes in the schedule led to new schedules being posted multiple times each month.


When Amery Police Department chose to use ScheduleAnywhere, officers and staff were initially reluctant to change; however they responded positively and now like having a quicker way to request time off, as well as having the ability to check schedules from their phones for updates and other items.


Chief Tom Marson has appreciated the real-time reporting and visibility ScheduleAnywhere has provided his department.


"It has afforded us the ability to quickly project future schedules easier, make changes from remote locations, and gives use a real-time schedule to work on," says Chief Marson.


Now, with the ability to install the ScheduleAnywhere mobile app on each of the officer's smartphones, his team appreciates knowing when they have to work without doubting whether they have the most current schedule.
