Aladtec

While most of my Aladtec experience is with public safety agencies, I cannot imagine an industry or service that would not benefit from an Aladtec system. Affordable, reliable, efficient and user-friendly - Aladtec offers a product that most companies simply can only dream about.

Planday

This is very well suited where there is a rotating support structure with larger teams involved. Our department as a whole has 16 full-time team members, with 4 people per team. The management of absences such as annual leave, alongside busy schedules or even seasonal downtime, is a breeze with Planday.

Pros

  • First and foremost, outstanding customer service. They are always willing to solve any issues and do so in a timely manner.
  • They are very open to new ideas and concepts from their customers to improve the overall product.
  • The organization is very innovative. They are constantly striving to find new ways to make the program work for their customers.
  • They provide outstanding training and support when needed or asked. Particularly when new employees are hired onto our department, Aladtec is willing to help train our new staff to the system. Being the program is so user friendly, we rarely have to do that, but is important to note they are willing to help.

  • Provides an overview of staffing levels for each team, and the department as a whole.
  • The UI makes it very easy to get a snapshot view of the staffing levels for set time period.
  • Managing absences and arranging for shift swaps are also efficiently handled using Planday.

Cons

  • The only item we would like to see is an online training module for our EMS staff. Being able to upload training items and quizzes for our staff to do under their user accounts would be a huge asset for our department and others. Similar to the Moodle training software.
  • No other issues to note.

  • Has a rigid structure, so there is only one way to do any particular task.

Alternatives Considered

We have not done a lot of research on other products, so we really can't compare. We have been very happy with Aladtec for the past 13 years. Their customer service, knowledgeable staff, affordable pricing, and progressive nature for customer satisfaction has kept us happy. Aladtec provides the staffing management solutions we want, so we have had no reason to shop around.

Other than an Excel spreadsheet and countless templates, we haven't really used anything else.

Return on Investment

  • Less time spent on scheduling. More time on staff management and operations.
  • Affordable solution to scheduling and staff notifications. Very cheap compared to other similar vendors.
  • Streamlined operations for our department by using this software and database. Staff can access what they need anytime they want by computer or cell phone.

  • So much easier to manage than an Excel spreadsheet!
  • The relatively low cost is completely outweighed by the time saved using Planday
