Nate and the entire staff have been prompt in answering our questions and correcting any problems that have arose. Great system!" -Chris Heaton, Captain Springfield Township Fire Department, Springfield, Ohio "Things continue to be working a lot more efficiently than the old way. I continue to be excited about the "mobile" version as well. I think we ended up putting the new schedule out in about 20 minutes. In the past it would have taken a good 2-3 hours!"

"Finding a workforce management system that's easy to use was our main focus. Aladtec is ideal because it's user friendly for all levels of computer capabilities. By using the Forms feature we can quickly access information we know is reliable. It eliminates paper expenses and it eliminates the chance that any given form will be misplaced. This feature also provides a one-stop-shop to get a form when it's needed, without having to go to the station to pick one up or dig around to find the most current version of it. Any and all changes to a form, and all new forms, can be seen as soon as they are released. There isn't any wait or any need to make a stack of copies to be passed out before they can be used."
