Employee & Volunteer Scheduling

Scheduling Software for EMS, Fire & Police

The heart of eSchedule centers around the Scheduling Module. EMS/Ambulance, Fire Departments and Police Departments can all benefit from moving their scheduled shifts into eSchedule.

Tightly integrated with the Timekeeping Module and other features, the schedule is the core piece that allows you to place your organization’s schedule online in a secure, centralized location.

No more paper or Excel schedules! Improve shift coverage by giving everyone 24/7 access to the schedule. Add employees to the schedule quickly & easily (yes, including rotations!). Reduce overtime costs and so much more.
