Making Better Staffing Decisions | InTime


It’s not what we what we do it’s how our customers use our product I’m not telling you this is what our software does It’s this is how other customers use our product and why it works so well for them Before using InTime I was spending about three hours a day out of my workday just on the schedule with the old paper system. When we went to InTime and I as I learned to use the system I probably at the end of after about six to eight months, as the lieutenant using it, I probably spent no more than about 20 minutes a day managing the same thing. We used to spend an hour well an hour and a half to two hours a day doing scheduling and building schedules and I’m I’m gonna say it’s probably less than five minutes now Prior to this for scheduling we would use an Excel spreadsheet. So it was extremely huge very time consuming to make changes So it’s really nice when they promote somebody and switch things around it’s just a few clicks and You’re ready to go and you just have to load the schedule on top instead of having to change every cell every sheet every tab of an Excel spreadsheet. Definitely. It’s benefited me. I wanted something that Enabled me to be able to schedule people, project the future schedules, know what my deployment was going to be and we were at minimum staffing levels and account for those things on a screen and to take a look at the department as a whole Not down in just singular sheets of paper and to see where we’re at. But I also wanted the ability to push out those overtime requests Let our employees respond back to those approve them. It goes on the schedule automatically and they get notified that they they’ve received the overtime It’s that two-way communication that makes it really really easy to use since we started using InTime, we post in the schedule, we send out an email and a text and I might post 20 on a Thursday and by Thursday night Those 20 shifts are already signed up for within 10-15 minutes We have the flexibility now to have InTime app on our phones and to be mobile and so we’re able to share information Much more effectively that way to get information in real time So that the technical or the digital world is something that policing really needs to start embracing If you’re looking for something that’s a one-stop shop that you can integrate into your operation and not have to try to Work with other programs I think InTime is probably one of the best because you can use it for scheduling, you can use it for timekeeping, you can use it for reports and it makes decision-making and scheduling easier
