Workforce Management PLUS
Smart Scheduling for Mission Critical Operations

Improve Staffing Management and Workforce Safety

Staffing 24/7/365 operations like yours with qualified personnel and mission critical equipment can mean the difference between life or death. Add in workplace stress factors and you may find both your agency and workforce are at risk. You need the right units in the right locations using the right equipment at the right time. No delays. No margin for error. No excuses.

While spreadsheets or light weight scheduling solutions may work for some organizations, they certainly can't support the complexities of your operations. With fatigue rules, minimum staffing levels, and mission critical equipment requirements, you need something smarter and more reliable. Something that automates your policies and safety rules.  You need Orion.

Turbo Charge Your Interfaced CAD System

Manually updating personnel and equipment data in CAD systems for one or more agencies is labor intense. With Orion's centralizing efficiencies, your integrated CAD system will automatically receive roll call personnel, operational equipment, and scheduling data in real-time.


CAD will automatically remain synchronized with continuously changing resource data -- such as personnel that have acquired new certifications, changed radios or have pre-assigned vehicles.


There are no more delays, duplicate data rejections, or need to make personnel, vehicle, or radio updates. Instead your dispatchers can focus on the  job they were hired to do ... that of dispatching.
