VCS — Smart Workforce Management Solutions Pioneer, Leader, and Innovator
How We Got Started
Influenced by industry leaders in the public sector and their dire need for a workforce management solution, Guy DiMemmo – Founder and now CEO of VCS – took on the task of creating a software system to combat and alleviate the many workforce and scheduling-related challenges they faced.
In 1998, DiMemmo founded VCS with the company’s flagship program POSS, the very first computerized system for police scheduling. In doing so, DiMemmo worked closely with New Jersey’s local Princeton Police Department to determine how to best ensure all union and labor laws would be followed. He knew gone were the days where pen and paper, or even Excel spreadsheets, would suffice; too many mistakes had been made, too many grievances filed. A fairer, more equitable system was needed to make sure that only the right employee, with the right training and qualifications, would be placed in the right position, at the right time.
When it hit the market just a few years later, POSS became an instant success, quickly gaining the approval of dozens of police departments throughout New Jersey. In 2016, VCS topped Inc. 5000’s list of the fastest-growing private companies. Today, POSS is now powering over 700 police departments across the U.S.
Where We’ve Gone
Building upon the lessons learned in designing the policing software, VCS soon expanded to develop customized web-based workforce management solutions to serve the entire public sector, as well as private business entities, including FIRES for Fire & EMS agencies, COSS for correctional agencies & jails, AION for businesses, and JOBS4BLUE to manage and administer services for extra duty.
Our Promising Future
Throughout the past 20 years, we’ve learned that technology needs to be ever-evolving in order to meet the changing needs of today’s workforce. VCS’ promise is to continue listening to the issues our clients are facing and to always respond accordingly with software that resolves them.
