Library System Implements Staff Scheduling Software

Fargo, N.D. (July 24, 2019)  – Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. announced that the Geauga County Public Library (GCPL) has implemented ScheduleAnywhere as its staff scheduling solution. The library system operates seven branch locations across Geauga County, Ohio. ScheduleAnywhere online employee scheduling software makes it possible for GCPL to share schedules between each location, as well as its administrative center and mobile services fleet.

ScheduleAnywhere replaces GCPL’s paper scheduling method and gives administrators and employees access to real-time schedules from any computer or mobile device.

“Many of our staff members work part-time, with a rotating schedule. This made it hard to pinpoint who was working at each location,” said Christine Reda, GCPL’s human resources coordinator. “ScheduleAnywhere gives us the ability to view the schedules from every location and see which employees are working in each department on any given day.”

With ScheduleAnywhere, employees can appear on multiple schedules, and managers can share employee schedules between departments and locations. This prevents scheduling conflicts such as overlapping shifts, double-booking employees and inadequate service point coverage.

“Managers can see if someone from another location is available to cover an open shift,” said Reda. “And if an employee needs to swap or cover a shift, they can easily see who is available via the mobile app and submit schedule requests online.”

Coverage can be monitored by skill, position, shift, service point or location. Administrators can assign tasks to each shift, enter staffing requirements and adjust staffing levels. Additionally, ScheduleAnywhere tracks attributes such as certifications and allows managers to communicate with individuals, or a select group of employees, to fill open shifts with qualified personnel.
