Aladtec Overview

What is Aladtec?

Aladtec is an employee scheduling and workforce management software for managing and modifying complex employee schedules. It can be used within various industries including EMS, fire/rescue, law enforcement, communications, healthcare, security and public administrations. Aladtec helps to manage employees with ever-changing schedules and multiple training levels.

Aladtec integrates seamlessly with a customizable member and form system, document storage, and various communication tools. Employees can view their schedules, sign up for open shifts, manage time off and trades, as well as submit forms. The solution is cloud-based, so all changes are made in real-time and readily available for viewing.

Aladtec employee scheduling allows employees to submit their availability so managers can effectively fill schedules based on that availability, as well as seniority and hours worked. The records management feature enables users to create forms and view the member database including track employee training, contact info, licenses and certifications, plus an unlimited number of custom fields. Using the media library, users can store documents, videos and pictures and set viewing permissions to different employee groups.

The web-based time clock tracks the minute when employees start and finish work, while the absence management feature tracks who is off and why. Managers cansend out email blasts to fill last minute openings, as well as send emails and text messages to individuals, specific groups, or all employees.

With Aladtec, users can configure nearly every aspect of the system as well as set access levels and restrictions for viewing private data with permissions to edit schedules and virtually all other editable administrative features.

Best Management Tool Around.

I have been using Aladtec for staff scheduling, and other workforce management tasks, for ten years. I’ve introduced it in every service where I’ve been a Director. I have used other systems but Aladtec is by far the best. This system stands out because it is great for both admin and field staff. Many systems are easy for the admin staff to run, because that’s who the provider is selling the software to, but the member users hate it because it is hard to use or not intuitive. Aladtec however, is easy to use and intuitive for all; it takes almost no hands-on training to get new users up and running. Aladtec and their team are some of the best that I have ever delt with in any industry. truly a company and product worth the time to check out. It has in every situation cut operation costs significantly. Pays for it self in no time whatsoever. I highly recommend these products to anyone who really wants to streamline their company and the day-to-day operations.

Love this scheduling program

This is our first computer scheduling software, we went from paper to this software. The transition was super easy and our staff love how easy it is to use.

Web-Based scheduling makes it easy to check my schedule from anywhere.

We have recently switched over from a Pay-Per-Call to Part-Time Fire Department. We use Aladtec to sign up for and schedule or shifts and training. It's easy to sign up for a shift and to check upcoming shifts. I also love that the system sends me a text notification 24 hours before my next shift. That has saved my butt when I had signed up for an earlier shift than I intended to and had not noticed my mistake. When I received the reminder alert, I was able to solve the problem with admin.

User friendly and customizable

We spent an excessive amount of time changing and managing the schedule. Aladtec has taken a significant amount of that off the supervisors plates and given the staff more of a say in their work lives.

Pros

Several reasons in no particular order. Customer support, Aladtec understands what each user needs individually and did not sell me a cut and paste/one size fits some kind of product. I have had some complicated truck and schedule rotations that were advanced and many other systems could not handle what I was needing. Since Aladtec built each system for me from the ground up it gave me everything I needed and nothing that I did not.

Next was the ease of use for admin and staff. Aladtec is intuitive and takes little to no training for users to be up and running.

The reporting section was next. I had to have detailed reports for many different items, and Aladtec gave me or made for me every report that I needed every time. They also have a forms section where I can make complicated forms very easy. I am not a computer programmer but with the form tool you would never know that. I have several check off sheets, employee evaluations,

Cons

None whatsoever. Aladtec and their products are the best around.

Pros

The mobile version of this website has had a huge boost in improvement since its first renditions. It is fairly easy to navigate each individual page and management personnel from the phone.

Cons

I don't like that I can no longer see my available hours for PTO, trade, or sick time. I thought that having the feature available in My Info page would be a nice added bonus. Also we I apply for time off it would be nice if the program warned me if the time requested would put me over the allocated time I have. This may have been a feature my admin has disabled but I think it should be a mandatory field.

Response from Aladtec

Dear Aladtec user. Thanks for taking the time to post a review. The function to display available hours for PTO, trade, etc., is enabled or disabled by your system administrator. We'd encourage you to speak with them about restoring Members' ability to utilize this Aladtec feature. Our Support team will be happy to help anytime. Reach them at #888.749.5550.

This is our first computer scheduling software, we went from paper to this software. The transition was super easy and our staff love how easy it is to use.

Pros

This software is easy to use, my staff is able to sign up for shifts on their own for self scheduling. This takes most of the work off of me as the manager. The staff is able to have 24/7 access to their schedule. Nursing admin and charge nurses are able to edit schedule in real time. This software is super user friendly.

Cons

When editing the schedule there are a lot of clicks involved. It would be nice to be able to schedule a staff member days at a time instead of just one day at a time.

Pros

Web-based makes it easy to use from anywhere. I can log in on my phone, or at any computer, I am at either at the Fire Station or at home. The interface is fairly intuitive, nothing seems too complicated. Easy to sign up for shifts and initiate trade requests. Text alerts for upcoming shifts is very handy as well.

Cons

We need to hit a certain number for hours each quarter. It would be nice if the option was available to see the total number of hours worked or scheduled to work for a certain timeframe.

Response from Aladtec

Dear Reviewer. Thanks for taking time to share opinions about Aladtec. In response to your query about a members' ability to view hours worked- or scheduled, information for the current schedule period can be viewed on the Scheduled Shifts tab at the top of the member display. Also, your administrator can grant permission for you to generate customized reports yourself. Our Support team will be happy to help anytime. Reach them at #888.749.5550.

Pros

We went from a paper system to atladtec. It has cut the hours spent scheduling and fixing the schedule by 2/3. The staff can find thier own coverage and trade or give shifts away. I like that you can customize so much in this system.

Cons

You cannot block schedule from view of managers when it is unpublished. So when it is in the tentative phase the charge nurses can see and make changes. This creates a problem.
