Preparing Your Group to Adopt New Technology

Posted by Shift Admin on January 8, 2019 at 6:00 AM

Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to adopt Shift Admin into your scheduling and department management processes. As your group’s administrator, you’ll now be able to enjoy the efficiency, reliability, and customization capabilities that our software has to offer. However, proper preparations for and implementation of new technology is just as crucial to your organization’s ability to perform as the software itself.

Learning doesn’t happen overnight, but there are a number of ways that you can help your staff adopt a new form of technology as quickly and as seamlessly as possible.

Define Scheduling Parameters

Let us help you get a head start. One of the best parts about Shift Admin is our world-class algorithm’s ability to meet your exact scheduling needs. With our software, you can set rules, define preferences, and then weight them all to generate the most optimal schedule possible.

To get started, our team will import information for your users, facilities, calls/shifts and your current schedule into Shift Admin. Once they’re in, we will work with you as we enter rules and parameters for your group and will train you on the generation process. One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to scheduling and thorough customization is a great way to make sure that you’re getting the most out of what Shift Admin can do for your organization.

Host a Kickoff Meeting

As with anything business-related, communication is key. A software kickoff meeting can enable your team to be on the same page from the very beginning of your transition onto Shift Admin. You and your team can use this time as an opportunity to both explain the transition and give your attendees a preview of Shift Admin’s powerful, user-friendly interface and all of its features and capabilities.

Opt for a Hands-On Approach

While lectures are typically full of useful information, trying it for yourself is one of the best, most effective ways to learn something new, especially when we’re talking about a brand new piece of software. When it comes to scheduling customization, optimization, and accessibility, Shift Admin is second to none. Therefore, early and frequent interaction with our product’s interface is one of the best practices for ensuring a smooth transition for all users.

Request a Demo

Is your team ready to explore a new option for automated scheduling but is not sure where to start or how to begin? We’d be more than happy to show you. Our product demonstrations cover a number of topics including:

  • The power of weighted rules and their importance in generating a full schedule
  • Shift Admin’s ability to handle even the most complicated schedules
  • The capabilities of our reporting, statistics, and payroll integration
  • Our built-in communication interface that allows for communication with everyone, specific groups, and individuals
  • Much, much more

Learning something from scratch can be difficult. For that reason, Shift Admin wants to make sure that you’re well-versed in everything that we can offer you, and that you can make the most out of it right out of the gate.

Make the Most of Your Resources

We provide training and support to your group administrators during your transition, but our service doesn’t stop there. We’re here for you whenever you need us and are committed to your success. It’s always ok to ask for help and our support team is ready to serve any request you may have.
