Supporting Quotes from Aladtec Customers:

“Aladtec allows us to configure our crew schedule exactly to what we need. I save countless hours on shift trades, giveaways and OT coverage.”
Patrick Myers, Assistant Fire Chief, Lawrenceburg Fire Department, IN

“We love just how much the program can do and how easy it is to use - especially the trade and shift giveaway capability,” Lindquist indicates. “Before we were using multiple programs and each had a separate cost. We had individual software programs for scheduling, calendars, equipment and maintenance tracking. Aladtec has everything we need all in one place at a fair price. We have also moved our office forms online to our Aladtec system. We track equipment and vehicle maintenance, incident reports, emergency medical card information for our staff, and daily driver checks.”
Leslie Lindquist, Rescue Chief, Saint Michael’s College Fire and Rescue, Colchester, VT

“I estimate we’re saving about 100 hours a month by using Aladtec. Gaining all these hours allows us to dedicate more time to a variety of important civic duties, resulting in a positive impact on the communities we serve. The mobile functionality makes it accessible to everyone all the time, which is perfect for our volunteer and part-time staff.”
Landon Churchill, Engineer/EMT, Colorado River Fire Rescue, Rifle, CO

“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. We tried the free demo and immediately saw the advantages of the system’s online schedule, customizable forms, various reporting options and a number of other valuable features.”
Susan Cabot, Secretary, Austintown Fire Department, Youngstown, OH

“The Shift Commander can send out specific group or individual texts when station assignments change. When this occurs, it is recorded and ensures that they got the message. From an administrative overview, we can see what’s being made and it’s all documented - regarding detailed texts, emails, time off requests, etc. The fact that we can record these notifications and review any discrepancies asserted by our personnel is important. Plus, the attendance accrual tracking is a great feature as well.”
Deputy Fire Chief Timothy Smith, Falmouth Fire Rescue Department, Falmouth, MA
