The employees can trade with each other and (submit) time-off requests from their smartphones. It automated processes for us, so they no longer had to be done by hand. -- Administrator Nick DiCicco, Chagrin Valley (OH) Dispatch Center
LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) July 30, 2018
Three representatives from Aladtec, the premier provider of scheduling and workforce management software for public safety, will again be part of APCO International’s Annual Conference & Expo next week.
The conference is billed as a "must-attend" event for public safety communications officials, from frontline telecommunicators to comm center managers to public safety communications equipment and services vendors.
Highlights include an opening address Sal Giunta, the nation's first living Medal of Honor recipient since the Vietnam War and author of "Living with Honor." He'll talk about the importance of teamwork, service before self and leadership in the face of overwhelming circumstances.
Session topics include emergency preparedness and situational awareness, the latest industry trends, products and tools, emerging technologies like next generation and broadband, cybersecurity for public safety communications, wireless communications technologies, and cutting-edge developments.
Aladtec's scheduling platform is used by more than 100 comm centers across the nation, including Chagrin Valley Dispatch Center and Hillcrest Heights Communications Center in suburban Cleveland. They use Aladtec to schedule dozens of dispatchers and fill open shifts quickly with the program's Find Coverage Alert.
Administrator Nick DiCicco describes it as "fantastic. The employees can trade with each other and (submit) time-off requests from their smartphones. It automated processes for us, so they no longer had to be done by hand."

“We have learned Aladtec is way more than just a scheduling tool. We like that we can set rotations for months at a time which saves a lot of time preparing future schedules," said Melissa Carpenter, director of Autauga County 911, Prattville, AL. "So if a dispatcher calls in sick, we can send out a text or email to employees through the software, and they can sign up for the open shift or even specify which of those hours they can work. We created a shift turn over the form that does not need to be printed. We created other forms to use as well which also cuts down on our paper cost and wastes including coaching forms, evacuation training, and vacation sell back forms."
Exhibit hours at APCO will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, Aug. 6; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 7. Account Executive Rob Kueppers, and Systems Specialists Eric Hahn and Jake Tormoen will provide live demonstrations at Booth # 1715 and answer any questions for current customers or those interested in learning more.
