Posted on January 11, 2019
Four-day education and networking event billed as 'Last Call’ as organization shifts conclave to a new venue next November
Aladtec, a Wisconsin-based provider of cloud-based scheduling and workforce management software, will be among at least 100 exhibitors showcasing products and services to EMS professionals attending Wisconsin EMS Association's "Working Together" conference and expo, Jan. 16-20 at the Wisconsin Center.
Nearly 900 EMS agencies nationwide use Aladtec to provide 24/7 staffing coverage and swiftly fill open shifts. The platform enables members to trade shifts, request time off, and log OT hours after the fact from a smartphone or other device. The program also includes a sophisticated form tool to speed up daily routines like rig- and med checks.
Aladtec's cloud-based scheduling and workforce management software is used by more than 2,150 agencies across North America, including 138 EMS and fire departments in Wisconsin.
“Before using Aladtec, I spent a lot of time dealing with trade requests from members. Now they take care of their own trades. It's also very easy to check the schedule from anywhere,” said Dale Dow, deputy chief with Fitch Rona Fire & EMS, which serves the Dane County (WI) communities of Fitchburg and Verona. “We'll never go back to paper scheduling."

Account executive Joe Ellis, Sales Director Nate Davis, and Support Specialist Jake Tormoen will offer free demonstrations of the software and answer user questions about features, such as the new capability to attach and upload files within the Forms area.
Aladtec staff will be at Booth #1020. Expo hours will be from 5-7 pm, Thursday; 11:15 am to 12:30 pm, and 1:45 to 3:30 pm, Friday; and 11:45 am to 1:45 pm on Saturday. Organizers declare WEMSA's show "the biggest Midwest fire and EMS expo." It's expected to include apparatus, airboats, helicopters, ambulances, safety gear, tools, and EMS and firefighting products.
The WEMSA gathering offers EMTs, paramedics and agency leaders several days of continuing education sessions across the tracks of ALS, BLS, critical care, educator, leadership, management operations, community paramedicine, and special populations.
