Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Technology has provided the EMS Sector with many advancements in recent years. One technology that continues to offer agencies an opportunity to improve is “Cloud” (Internet) based software. These tools include ePCR (electronic Patient Care Reporting), online vehicle maintenance tracking and online crew scheduling and workforce management.
When Aladtec developed the first version of EMS Manager in 2002, virtually no one had heard of the term SaaS or “The Cloud” and the vast majority of EMS agencies scheduled staff with paper and pen. Fast forward, and today over 1,000 organizations subscribe to Aladtec’s online employee scheduling and workforce management software with over 60,000 users.
“We are very fortunate and honored to be a vendor for the first responder community. Our products automate the mundane and error prone aspects of workforce management. This allows our customers to focus on their priority - the communities they serve. We had significant growth in 2013 due to the Public Safety sector. We gained 264 new customers last year, achieving a 30% growth in our revenue,” announces David Feyereisen, CEO, Aladtec, Inc., Hudson, WI.
“When we started promoting EMS Manager most agencies didn’t have Internet access yet so sales early on were tough,” explains Feyereisen. “Today, people use “The Cloud” all the time for email, social networking, banking, sharing photos, etc., so it’s easy for them to understand how multi-user cloud systems can save time and money by automating processes.”
EMS Manager allows members to submit availability, request time off and make shift trades. Aladtec’s products have evolved from just an online crew scheduling system to an all-in-one workforce management tool. The system features certification tracking, a document library, member forum, events calendar, custom reports and an optional Time Clock kiosk.
While at the 2014 WEMSA Working Together Conference (booth #900), Aladtec hopes to connect with many of their more than 100 customers in the state. They will also offer guided demos of their EMS Manager online employee scheduling and workforce management system along with signing agencies up for their free trial offer.
“EMS Manager cut the amount of time we spent on the schedule dramatically, it’s a 10th of what it was before we moved online.”
-Rob Lulling, Director of Operations, Ryan Brothers Ambulance, Madison, WI
“Whether your service has 30 or 100 EMT’s and performs 2,000 or 13,000 runs a year, it’s easy to see why an agency should go out with the old “off-line” system and in with the new “online” system. The big payoff is in spending a lot less time on scheduling. There is an instant return on investment with the ease of tracking employee shift times and any changes with vacation and sick time for payroll.”
-Andrew Klock, Lieutenant, Baraboo District Ambulance Service, Baraboo, WI
“After using EMS Manager for three years, we’ve found it’s become a very important “member” of our department. And it’s very affordable; the yearly subscription is paid for after
only one or two calls, I don’t see why an agency wouldn’t want it!”
-Kim Eby, Chief, St. Croix EMS & Rescue, Hudson, WI
