|City of Worthington – Division of Fire and Emergency Medical Services (OH) – Battalion Chief Lewis Butterfield
“Before we started using FIRES scheduling software, the Fire Department had a secretary whose main job was to maintain payroll and employee time off accruals. Errors were a common occurrence because everything was done with paper and a calculator. Getting accurate and timely statistics was next to impossible. Since we started using FIRES, we have streamlined the process, while providing accurate data to City Administration. A cost savings to our Department would easily be $50,000 per year.”
|Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office (NJ) – Alan Jacobowitz –Systems Analyst
“Through VCS’ POSS software, the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office in New Jersey has recognized a substantial overtime savings. Staff has been afforded the ability to monitor and maintain their schedules remotely through POSS WEB from any where on the planet. Our POSS Kiosks allow accurate tracking and documentation of the coming and going of staff. In summary, POSS provided us the mechanism to take control of our scheduling challenges, and efficiently deploy staff. “
|Atlantic County Department of Public Safety (NJ) – Sgt. Anthony Minetti
“POSS has enabled Atlantic County (a department of 250 employees) to save more than $70,000 per year simply by effectively managing payroll and overtime while paying for itself in the first year alone.”
|Spring Township Police Department (PA) – Lt. Joseph Shivers
“POSS has been a tremendous asset for our police dept. Prior to using POSS we had been using an antiquated paper and labor (time) intensive system. The ease of use that the system provides for individual departments is incredible. The system has paid for itself several times over and we’ve only been using it 5 months. A great product with excellent people backing it up.”
