AION’S Specialty Suite For Correctional Agencies And Jails

Maintaining fair and effective workforce scheduling to address the intricate day-to-day operations of a correctional facility is no easy task. The Correction Officer Scheduling System is the only authentic corrections scheduling and time & attendance solution that exists in the marketplace today. As requested by Correctional Administrators who best understand the complexity of their mandated rules and laws, COSS was designed to include the ability for customization to a facility’s unique requirements.

Two primary features that are inherent to the correctional industry are shift bidding and rules policy automation. With COSS, you can systemize overtime shift bidding with the ability to customize the process based upon the requirements set by your organization.

Employees are enabled to bid on overtime shifts directly from a smart phone, tablet, or personal computer. Also, the ability to input all policies - as they relate to labor laws, attendance tracking, and overtime - will propel your agency to a level of compliance and efficiency associated with best-in-class institutions.

Distinctive to the powerful AION platform are our rules-driven Schedule Builder, Report Writer, and Security Designer tools. These innovative developments allow for agency-specific rotations, posts, security hierarchies, union rules, overtime fairness requirements, and pay rates to drive the use and automation of your information in the exact format and display desired.

    The system has operated flawlessly and the supervisors that were not even trained on the system navigate it with ease. I wish all of our computer systems worked as easily as this one. You have an incredible product.

    After years of using an outdated scheduling program, your product has made my life 10 times easier. The tech support is great and the staff is so pleasant.

    Prior to using the system we had been using an antiquated paper and labor (time) intensive system. 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.

    Lt. Joseph Shivers, Reading, PA

    Information that used to take hours to retrieve is available to any administrator in a matter of seconds. Your excellent product support and enhancements have confirmed for us that the implementation of the system has been one of the most beneficial improvements we have made.
