I've used ePro.... as you said, it's feature rich, but (as you said), no one has used it to it's fullest capacity. Not only that, some places use the additional features because they paid for them, not because they have an actual need for them. And I'm sure those additional features are factored into the cost. https://www.ninthbrain.com/ is the same way.Every where I've worked has used ePro/NetScheduler which was recently bought by ESO. It's good, and is feature rich. None of the places I've worked have ever used it to it's full capacity, maybe it's difficult.
My former agency used it; it was a significant upgrade from the excel spreadsheet that we used previously... here is a screenshot of it taken off the web (and I wouldn't share a live shot even if i I could, because it would include our employee names):Thanks for the replies, everyone! Whentowork sounds like it may be a cool option. Anyone else use it? And is anyone able to share screenshots of how it looks/works at their agency?
+1 for Ninthbrain. We use every thing except time keeping and scheduling on it. I don't know why we dont, since it can.We use ePro and while it’s feature rich, implementation of those features is a pain. I understand that ESO will be retooling lots of it. We use almost all the modules. Incident reporting, equipment tracking, vehicles, and all the rest. The con ed module is awful. I’d love to move to ninthbrain.
Yes, it is, unless you're trying to dissemble your true reason for a dramatically timed and poorly executed hard transition to an empirically inferior scheduling system. Then you'll spread a rumor through your organization that the firm went bust overnight and that's why we have to roll out a pull from the garbage can solution from the 2000s. And many people will believe it....I am but a user. However, CrewSense (VectorSolutions) is certainly the best I've used so far. Their app is excellent and in terms of "just" scheduling, I can't think of anything it lacks.
Another job recently got EPro which is fine, but the mobile interface is garbage. The time keeping portion can be set up to require you to be on pre-approved wifi networks which seems smart.
No fan of TeleStaff but that could be a locality issue. Seems too complicated in general and very slow.
Aladtec and WhenToWork seemed pretty comparable and worked well.
PlanitEMS was ok from what I remember, not sure that it's even still around?
