Implementing a New Scheduling Process is Easy with the Right Software
June 10, 2021
The decision to implement new scheduling software is an exciting but overwhelming time. Whether we like to admit it or not, we’re creatures of habit and the thought of stepping outside of our comfort zone and changing things up is enough to push some of us over the edge, even if what we’ve been doing hasn’t been working.
If you’re in desperate need of a major overhaul to your staff scheduling process but have been delaying the inevitable because you’re worried it will be too difficult of a process to implement throughout the workplace, we understand. The last thing you need is another disruption to set you back. Whatever your reasons for hesitating, we’re here to reassure you that you won’t be navigating the implementation process alone.
Scheduling Software Designed to Grow with You
Schedule360 has a highly configurable software solution to fit nearly any type of business, no matter the size. Implementing it doesn’t have to happen in your facility all at once either. For example, we’ve been working with a large hospital for many years. In the beginning they implemented Schedule360 software to be used in one unit only. Once they realized the many benefits of our software in addition to how easy our implementation process is, they began the process of implementing our software into other units as well. It certainly wasn’t an overnight process. They started small, but gradually and successfully switched their scheduling processes to Schedule360 across multiple units over an extended period of time. They took a staggered approach unit by unit, and in doing so they now have greater control over optimizing their schedule. They needed our help but couldn’t imagine how it could be accomplished. With our easy set up process they implemented the new system without causing a major disruption to daily demands. As a result, they have expanded our software into new units because they know they can.
Stress-Free Implementation Process
Schedule360’s easy implementation process is designed to get you set up with a scheduling software solution that’s configured to fit your needs right away and we do all of the heavy lifting for you where data entry is concerned. The last thing we want to do is leave you stranded when you’re already feeling overwhelmed, so we help with implementation, training your staff to use the software, data entry, and we provide a configured demo upfront so you can roll out the system as fast or as slow as you’d like.
On-Going Customer Support and Training
Having on-going customer support available 24/7 even after the implementation and training process ends is absolutely essential, or at least we think it is. We understand that the majority of companies simply don't have the time or resources to ensure that their facility is properly utilizing the full scope of this scheduling software, so that’s why we’re always available to assist.
Features Designed to Fit Your Specific Needs
Different industries have very different needs when it comes to staff scheduling, so it’s important to pick a vendor who has experience in working with organizations like yours who are facing similar scheduling challenges. They should be able to suggest features that will benefit your entire organization, allowing you to make necessary changes that will greatly improve your current scheduling processes. That’s why we’re fully confident that Schedule360 will work great for your business because our features are a direct result of understanding what our customers need. Should your needs ever change in the future, we offer unlimited scalability that can be configured to fit your exact needs now and in the future, including the ability to pick and choose the features you want, and eliminate those you don’t at any time.
We don’t want you to pay for more than you need, so why settle for an out of the box option? Our pricing is based on users, can be expanded to fit any size unit or company, and features can be omitted and added at any time. We’re constantly talking with current users, and the feedback we get helps us create new features to make scheduling more efficient in your business. When we roll out these new features we’ll let you know about them so you can determine if they would work well for your processes, too. Additionally, if there’s a feature you wish we had let us know! We might have it or create it because chances are if it’s something you’d find benefit in, other customers likely will too.
Our rules-based self-scheduling feature saves your schedulers loads of time, while also giving your employees a sense of freedom and flexibility over their own schedule. After shifts are released for the upcoming schedule, any remaining open shifts are available for self-scheduling by qualified employees. Management still defines setup, and features can be turned on or off at any time.
Our unique scheduling software provides complete schedule transparency, allowing schedulers and administrators to view the schedule in ways that make managing schedules across multiple locations a much simpler process. Employees can also view their schedule 24/7 from any mobile device with internet access which significantly decreases the amount of open shifts and calls to the scheduling team with shift scheduling questions.
Achieve operational efficiency without draining your precious time and resources by automating those otherwise time-consuming tasks such as employee shift swaps, self-scheduling, credential tracking, time-off requests, and keeping track of OT.
Enhanced Messaging Capabilities
We understand that communication is critical, so that’s why our scheduling software comes equipped with an integrated messaging tool, along with enhanced messaging capabilities to vastly improve and streamline your entire staff communication process. Our online, web-based solution for messaging provides administrators with segmented messaging options to message different groups based on current needs. Admins can select staff within one unit, department, facility, enterprise, or even over multiple campuses. They can also dispatch a message to an employee scheduled to work that day or send out a message to everyone on the list.
Forecasting shift needs can become so much easier than you ever imagined thanks to our real-time reporting. Integrated data compiling allows for one-click management of employee compliance work targets. Not to mention you’ll also gain the ability to oversee multiple locations if needed with one click.
