PDSI Announces TeleStaff 2011 User Conference
Premier event attracts leading minds of staffing and workforce management
IRVINE, Calif. - Principal Decision Systems International, PDSI, the developer of TeleStaff, an automated scheduling and notification solution for the public safety and utilities industries, will host its 2011 User Conference, “Maximizing Efficiency One Schedule at a Time,” Sept. 19-21 at the Hyatt Regency Orange County in California. Representatives from law enforcement, fire and EMS, corrections, campus public safety and the utilities sectors are expected to attend.
The three-day conference will bring together a large community of public safety and utilities schedulers for intensive training, extended one-on-one technical sessions, product updates, and roundtable discussions with the product development team.
Director of Customer Services Martha Strittmater said the conference will mark a fundamental shift from past user events with breakout sessions focusing on broader, industry- wide topics and return on investment strategies as well as highlighting product features that demonstrate ongoing value. Since the last conference, TeleStaff has continued to evolve in response to a changing, more demanding staffing environment for public safety and utilities organizations. The solution offers customers a substantial platform and precision features on which all scheduling and workforce processes connect and align to create workforce scheduling efficiency.
“We want to help our customers get more out of TeleStaff. It’s like driving a fully loaded car in second gear. At some point, you’ve got to let that throttle go,” said Strittmater. “This will be achieved through extensive training and the sharing of strategies and ideas among users. We will help them achieve more with what they already have and enable them to solve their real business problems like increasing productivity, improving morale and managing compliance risks. By using the system to its full capabilities, customers reap significant benefits and obtain a huge return on their investment.”
