Schedule Express is widely known for its user-friendly interface and ease of use. Employees can easily see daily, weekly and monthly views that show a variety of exceptions including days worked, days off, trades, overtime, special assignments, duty assignments, training assignments and more. Since it is browser-based, Schedule Express can be accessed by employees from their laptop, home computer or mobile device to view their own schedule, request time off, sign-up for overtime and more.
Schedule Express is completely web-based and hosted so there is no hardware to maintain, no applications to install. You and your employees are up and running in a few days – not weeks or months.
Schedule Express makes it easy for users to request time off and route that request through the appropriate supervisor for review/approval.
Scheduling Needs At-a-Glance
Schedule Express supports the ability to visually notify schedulers and supervisors that there are staffing shortages related to shift minimums of required employees, specific classifications, specific skillsets, sub-skillsets, certifications and required employees.
Schedule Express provides accurate and specific visual staffing level indicators (e.g., RED=under staffed; YELLOW=overstaffed; ORANGE= both over and understaffed) for quick, at-a-glance status updates.
Advanced Scheduling Ecosystem
Many factors impact scheduling. It’s not just when and where a person is working, but it’s the exceptions to the “when” and the “where” a person is working that becomes complicated. As a fully featured advanced scheduling ecosystem, Schedule Express combines all of the connective tissue of those exceptions that impact scheduling into a fully integrated, real-time and robust solution. Furthermore, while other companies will charge for additional modules or feature sets, not so with Schedule Express. Every customer gets the entirety of the Schedule Express feature set at no additional costs. Schedule Express manages the vast complexities associated with:
Absences or time-off, shift trades/swaps, overtime (voluntary and mandated), training assignments, special assignments, duty assignments, emergency schedules, event scheduling, off/extra duty scheduling, coverage plans, personnel skillsets and qualifications, vacation bidding, shift bidding, electronic time cards, time banks, reporting, audit trails, security rights, interfacing to payroll, text and email notifications, mobile app and more.
Powerful Configurator Engine
There is one common thread that links all public safety agencies, that is, no two agencies operate their schedules the same way. The need to custom configure each individual agency and their respective departments is paramount. The very core of Schedule Express lies within its powerful and potent configuration engine. It is here that Schedule Express has the ability to custom configure each individual agency and each individual department within that agency to its own scheduling policies, procedures, rules, regulations, MOUs, CBAs or any other employment agreement(s) that may exist. Once again this makes Schedule Express ideal for any public safety agency’s diverse departmental requirements.
