The Florissant Police Department began searching for a scheduling software application in February of 2016. We interviewed 7 different vendors. PlanIt Police stood out as the clear choice for us because of their features, functionality, ease-of-use, accessibility and affordability.
With 115 people in our building serving dozens of different functions and working different hours we were in need of a consolidated schedule that everyone could see. What we received from PlanIt Police was so much more. All of our employees can not only clearly see their schedule; they know when their peers are working as well. They can easily request time off, be notified by text or email when it is approved, and submit their overtime or comp time requests. Our Officers can submit time off requests or overtime from their patrol cars, their smart phones, or from their home computers.
The setup team at PlanIt did all the heavy lifting for us to get us started by inputting all of our data, different platoons and schedule cycles. Then they trained our administrators on the system in about 8 hours and were always there for us in the following weeks when we had questions. The hundreds of pre-written reports in PlanI are also a great benefit of the system. They allow us to export any amount of data from the system however we need it.
We would highly recommend PlanIt to any law enforcement organization.
