The Benefits of Reporting in EMS Scheduling Software
The EMS industry is a fast-paced operation with an extended amount of moving parts. Keeping up with the schedules within your station using manual processes can be exhausting and extremely time-consuming. Without a reliable EMS reporting software, managers are left with long manual processes of pulling data, which may be incorrect at times.
EMS reporting systems are much more than busy work or data entry. Tracking the successes and failures of your station can greatly impact the overall health of your agency and give you a clear picture of things that need work. Stay tuned as we cover three types of reports and how each of them can help improve your future operations.
Dynamic Schedule Reports
Reporting is critical for every agency. Without it, managing employee overtime and shift rotations becomes more difficult. Imagine investing your hard-earned money in the stock market but failing to check on its status. Doesn’t make too much sense, right? Reporting is similar to checking in on your investments.
Having access to an EMS reporting software will keep managers up to speed on all employee and shift activity. A dynamic schedule report provides managers with a detailed view of every action that takes place on a schedule worksheet, a schedule view that outlines all shift activity for the day. Dynamic schedule reports can be pulled at any time with ease and exported as a CSV or PDF file to other department managers.
With the right EMS reporting software at your fingertips, managers can better support their departments and push them towards success.
Timekeeping reports document every employee punch online or offline. When an employee is clocked in manually by a manager, this is considered an offline punch. If an employee clocks in under their own fruition, it’s considered an online punch.
If an employee is late, early, or misses a punch, this report will provide managers with the punch time and the name of the employee. If your agency requires a bit more information from the employee as to why they were late, early, or missed their punch, agencies can set up a mandatory comment threshold before the employee can clock back in or out. Supervising a growing agency calls for a robust EMS reporting software to keep up with employee punches.
Getting payroll right every time can be a challenge. Let’s face it, no one’s perfect and mistakes are going to happen. But finding mistakes before they become a problem can make an unfavorable situation manageable.
Payroll reports are a safety blanket for payroll departments. Before sending your payroll file out to be processed, simply generate a quick report to review earning codes and employee overtime to ensure the data is accurate. View your report by week, pay period, employee, or cost center to get a deeper look into your agency’s activity.
