New Years Resolution - Get Organized!!!
three things that will helpSo you've decided that this year is going to be different you're going to start working out, eating right and finally get yourself (and others) organized. Well the first two we can't help you with...but getting organized...that's where we shine! In order to get organized you have to have the proper tools. Did you know that your EMS Manager, Fire Manager or Zanager system has the necessary tools for you to keep an organized thriving agency, or business, without using other software or old techniques. Here are some tools that will help you keep at least one New Years resolution!
Member Database Management
You can collect and manage all of your employee data in a single location by utilizing the Member Database. Here are a few things you can keep track of to stay organized:
- Certifications & Licenses
- Skills, Continuing Education & Specialties
- Badge Numbers & Uniform Information
- Vehicle Maintenance Records & Gear Inventory
- Time Off Accrual Profiles, Seniority & Start Dates
Library Storage Space
If you have important files and documents you can store them in your system's library, which includes 200 gigs of storage. Store anything...from Word documents to training videos...whatever you store, your members can access the Library 24/7/365 from anywhere, including smart phones and any other web enabled mobile device.
For Example: If you need to get a specific
document into the hands of all your members,
simply place the document into your system's
"Library" and then send a mass email (from the Member Database) telling staff where to access it.
They log into your company's system, head to the library and will access it immediately.
No more hunting around for attachments in emails and no more navigating to other storage places on the internet...it exists where you want it and everyone on your staff to be...on your own system!
Lastly...another great way to get organized is being able to centralize your communication channels. Not only can you use your system's Forum for discussions and sharing ideas, but you can also use it as a message board to post specific information for only certain members based on their "Access Level." So your crew members can safely, securely and privately evaluate your trainees without the need for another long meeting.
They simply speak freely and you compile the information
in order to make an informed decision about your new hires.
For example, one of our customers uses it to keep track of their facility cleaning duties. Instead of employees showing up at the station and seeing a paper list hanging on the wall with 2 hours worth of work, staff can go into the "Forum", pull up the topic that lists all the duties for the day and see how much time they will need set aside to get these duties done...before their shift starts. A virtual task list of sorts!
