The first facility-specific scheduling application for better animal care
Resource Scheduling was specially designed to help simplify the complex scheduling processes of animal research organizations.
- Scheduling and balancing of staff, rooms, and facilities
- Daily schedules and real-time updates on mobile devices
- Planning for shifts of resources due to PTO and holidays
- Immediate response to daily events such as unplanned absences and activities
- Daily progress tracking
- Quick access to in-app reports
“Resource Scheduling is an exciting new module that provides us with the task management, people management, and time management that we’ve been lacking with our current systems. The ease of scheduling and making changes or corrections is refreshing, and the more we set up and use the metrics, the more information becomes available to us. We look forward to continuing to explore and utilize all that Resource Scheduling has to offer.”

Resource Scheduling auto-generates daily schedules with alerts for potential problems and easily handles PTO and overtime. With real-time access to staff’s availability and skill sets, response to animal care needs is immediate, accurate, and appropriate. With Resource Scheduling, you’ll maintain total coverage of rooms regardless of expected and unforeseeable scheduling changes.
Each day, staff members have access to electronic schedules on their mobile devices so they know what to expect upon arrival to work. Any changes throughout the day are immediately reflected on staff’s mobile schedules, where they can also update their tasks on the go, resulting in improved communication and responsiveness between staff and schedulers.
Know what’s going on with every staff member and room with real-time dashboards. Schedulers can monitor daily progress, identify gaps, and reallocate staff with the appropriate skill sets right away.
Resource Scheduling uses current animal inventory and task metrics to estimate staffing requirements. On-demand reports show historical trends, identify areas for operational improvement, and provide quick access to records for site inspection.
