Watch Do you wonder why your scheduler always seems frazzled? They have to juggle so many staff requests, remember all your scheduling rules, adhere to stiff labor regulations and know that if they make a mistake it could mean that a client in need doesn’t have anyone show up for a shift. Sparkrock has been working with human services organizations for the last decade, and together with them we have developed our employee scheduling solution.

Watch How many small requests does your HR team get daily from staff? “I need to change my address” “Can I get a copy of my pay stub?” “When’s my next shift scheduled for again?” “I need to request some vacation”. We found that many organizations spend way too much time dealing with all of these requests. That’s why we created the Workforce Management solution - a secure, permission-based web application where employees can access everything in one place.

Watch Do you spend too much time getting your financial data in the desired format? Is your finance team bogged down with collecting data from multiple sources and ensuring it is the same across departments or locations? We can help.

Watch Wouldn’t you like a smart enough system that aids you in controlling costs and putting a check on overspending at your organization? Sparkrock has been working with non-profit organizations for the last decade, and together with them we have developed several non-profit focused capabilities.

Watch You play a huge role in the lives of the people your organization serves. But the tangible results of your hard work are not always easy to see, and sometimes even harder to report on.

Watch Imagine a world where you can access neatly organized client data without rummaging through papers. Or imagine easily reading case notes without struggling to decipher handwriting. Sparkrock has been working with human services organizations like yours for the last decade, and together with them we have developed a secure online portal for our Case Management solution.

Watch Do you feel like it takes forever to find the information you need? Do you need to sift through irrelevant data to get to what you really need? Do you worry that sensitive financial data is available freely to all within the organization? Sparkrock has found that many organizations share this concern. Which is why we built a system where the user experience is tailored for each employee so that they can find information quickly and easily.

Watch When people come to your human services organization for help, the last thing they want to do is fill a mountain worth of paperwork. With our Case Management solution, as soon as ongoing program data is collected for clients, their corresponding client profile will be updated automatically, allowing you to spend less time entering data and more time helping your clients reach their goals.

Watch That pile of timesheets sitting on someone on your team’s desk is the thing they dread most about their job. What if I told you that you could take manual timesheet entry right out of your process? By linking payroll to an online time entry and scheduling system, we can eliminate a lot of extra steps and ensure that all your employees get paid the right amount, and on time. Would that pique your interest?
