An application that allows on-call personnel to contact coworkers and supervisors quickly to resolve scheduling conflicts or find someone to cover a shift.
These days, most businesses require ‘round-the-clock staff—even if it means having one employee on stand-by. In today’s environment of “doing more with less,” some organizations make their personnel available by identifying an employee as “on call.” Being “on call” means being ready to provide services immediately, should the need arise. Hospitals and medical clinics, police and fire departments, federal, state, and local governments; all of these institutions designate personnel to be available at a moment’s notice.
Unfortunately, scheduling personnel for on call duties can be extremely difficult; sometimes life gets in the way. What happens when the on-call person has an emergency? How can a doctor identify someone as her on-call replacement quickly? How does a volunteer firefighter readily locate someone to cover his on-call shift?
NewWave Telecom and Technologies, Inc. (NewWave) has developed a scheduling application for on-call personnel. This groundbreaking app allows on-call personnel to contact co-workers and supervisors quickly to resolve scheduling conflicts or find someone to cover a shift. NewWave’s on-call scheduling app is really two programs in one: an on-call scheduling creator and viewer, and a secure message and contact platform.
