Supporting Quotes from Aladtec Law Enforcement Customers:
“Aladtec for Law Enforcement is so much better than the old spreadsheet we used before. Now, it’s very easy for staff to request time off, the schedule stays accurate and it’s is easy to manage. I truly try to forget how labor intensive the old way was.”
· Steven Schoenbauer, PSAP Supervisor, Carver County Sheriff’s Office, Chaska, MN
“With Aladtec, we can see part-time staff’s availability for any given shift which saves us time and effort. This ability allows us to move and change shifts to prevent overtime – before we couldn’t tell when someone was going to go into overtime hours. I believe switching to Aladtec saves me 15 to 20 hours per week in time spent scheduling compared to the old method – so I’m gaining as much as two weeks of time every month!”
· Jeffrey Hammond, Sergeant, Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, Geneseo, NY
“We are unionized here and I thought it would be an issue for calling people in on overtime according to the union contract. The union worked with us so we could do the coverage requests using the system. Because the Aladtec software time and date stamps all sign up requests we can take the overtime sign ups to meet the contract requirements. I believe it will save us more than $6,500.00 per year. The system is simple, one of my senior supervisors is not great with electronic devices and dreaded going to the new schedule program. He told me just last week ago he would not be without it.”
· Jeff Rickaby, Sheriff, Florence County Sheriff’s Office, WI
“Previously, we simply used an Excel spreadsheet to schedule our staff. It was very time consuming. My favorite features are Aladtec’s paging feature, the ability to do advanced scheduling far into the future and the mobile capability. Through the mobile web app, I can send out a page from anywhere. The crew likes the ability to see who has what for shifts, or detail assignments, and the fact they can request shift swaps from home or anywhere.”
