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.

Shiftboard

Shiftboard allows staff to see their schedule and bid on overtime shifts that are available. This function is very powerful and helps our organization greatly. Our centralized scheduling manager is able to see every schedule in our organization. With this information, the scheduler can see which programs need help and is able to assist. This functionality has increased efficiency and saved us in overtime costs.

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.

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.

  • The ability to print a month view of the schedule would be a great benefit.
  • The signup list is a great feature, but there are too many steps to make it easy to use.
  • The bulk add and delete process works well, but tends to be confusing for users.

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.
