Somerset Township Fire & EMS Announces Selection of Aladtec's EMS Manager for Online Employee Scheduling

Somerset Center, MI, Feb 07, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- By making the move to an online employee scheduling system Somerset Township Fire & EMS increases efficiency and reduces labor costs. "With EMS Manager, our crews simply input their availability, then we create the schedule and members are allowed to switch shifts as needed. Before, they had to write down their availability and hand it in on a piece of paper so the schedule could be created manually. If they wanted to switch shifts the schedule had to be redone," explains Fire Chief, Scott A. Friess. "Also, with EMS Manager we don't have any OT costs. This is because the system automatically tabulates everyone's hours as the schedule is created, and you can see everyone's hours at a glance." Chief Friess indicates he often uses EMS Manager's mobile web application on his smartphone to view the schedule and check to see who's working. He finds the mobile app to work just as well for him as his desktop version. EMS Manager's web app works on any smartphone, or other mobile device, with internet access so it's available 24/7/365.

Although there are many good online employee scheduling programs available, EMS Manager has many features and benefits that are tailored specifically to the emergency medical services sector. These features include: certification tracking; regulatory report capabilities; and EMS news feeds. In addition, administrators find the system improves communication within the department. "I can now send an email, or text, to all our members instantaneously. Before I had to send each email and each text individually to our 31 members, which took a lot of time," Chief Friess says. "We are very happy we chose EMS Manager, it saves us time and money." Somerset Township Fire and EMS is located in Somerset Center, Hillsdale County, in Southern Michigan. The agency serves nearly 5,000 people over a 36 square mile radius.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
