Smart Scheduling

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

And your mobile workforce will stay instantly connected with any assignment changes and notification updates.

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 essential job they were hired to do ... that of dispatching.

Give your employees the freedom to swap shifts with other qualified personnel, knowing their trades always comply with your rules. Apply fatigue or overtime rules for automated scheduling oversight. The solution’s powerful rules engine ensures that employee swaps always follow your policies.


Employees receive their court notices with case and location details in real-time and can acknowledge receiving each notification. Additionally, court events are displayed on their calendars, shift rosters, and mobile devices. It’s a great way to save administration time and coordinate schedules.


Manage employer information, enter event opportunities and qualifications, assign personnel, and track job results from one centralized location. Employees view jobs in a monthly calendar or listed formats -- and sign up for one or more events with a simple click. Apply rules for unbiased assignments. It’s fair, simple, and easy.


Plan for peak vacation periods and enable your employees to choose their desired dates. Use agency rules to ensure that time off is fairly awarded. Vacation hours are automatically deducted from each employee’s leave accrual balance. Approved dates are added to their calendars and shift rosters. Now that’s efficiency.


Ensure fair scheduling of assignments based on your rules. Offer available schedules agency-wide or sort them by job types, organizations, or unionized personnel. Automate the approval process using your criteria or assign authorized personnel to process bids. All finalized schedules are automatically updated on employee calendars and shift rosters. It’s an amazing time-saver.

Employee Self-Services That Increase Efficiencies

Self-service capabilities reduce administrative workloads and eliminate time-consuming manual processes. Since all workflow automation is based on your policies, managers respond to requests with confidence knowing that checks are in place to flag conflicts.
