Usage Examples

We know that each and every one of our users will be different and unique. That’s why we created Schedule Fusion to be flexible to your needs. Not only are you able to create individual resources but you have the ability to organize them via any categorization you need.

This makes Schedule Fusion a custom tailored solution for all businesses! Here are some examples illustrating how Schedule Fusion can benefit such a diverse collection of businesses and organizations.

Healthcare

As a teaching hospital that provides a wealth of educational services for the public and practitioners, Consilium Medical Center has a number of moving parts to track of when it comes to resource management. A robust simulation training program means the institution maintains an extensive collection of medical and healthcare education devices. Schedule Fusion provides the ability to make sure those resources are allocated without conflict and maximizing the hospital’s mission driven activity. Administrators and key medical providers within the education program are provided with admin level accounts so they can schedule resources and events as needed without the bottle neck of submitting requests to a central processing manager. And thanks to smart reservations thresholds, the hospital operations staff know that the app will make sure those resources are being used evenly across all departments and programs.

Academia

Easily, one of the fields with the most moving parts when it comes to resource managements is academia. A cyclical sea of humanity passes through its halls every year and schools need to make sure students and faculty have access to the locations and resources they need. Well suited to handle everything from small private schools through massive universities, Schedule Fusion scales according to need. Whether you need all resource requests to go through a single point of contact within the administration while allowing key faculty members to access current bookings or provide direct booking access to multiple team members, you’ll be able to maintain the levels of control you need. In this example, we examine a typical setup for a multimedia center that manages resources for both students and faculty.

Service Trades

Hand iTech is a successful service trade business that provides a wide variety of residential and commercial services. In addition to using service call managers to reserve resources and create events, they want senior members of their trade pros to function in the same capacity, even while they are out in the field. This makes it easier for clients to schedule unplanned subsequent work right on the spot. Allowing team members without admin credentials to view the existing event schedule to help manage their time better and help the central managers identify problems that may only be obvious to someone in the field. All of this real-time communication and flexibility provided by Schedule Fusion results in higher average revenue per job ratios and an increase in annual profits.

Conference and Convention Centers

Pinnacle Conference and Executive center has operated for more the 50 years and has managed the rapidly changing environment within their field better than most of their peers. With the addition of four additional floors of space within their existing building, they expanded into the emerging market of facility sharing, business incubation, and meeting room hoteling. This meant than in addition to their in-house managers responsible for maintaining facility reservations and resource booking, they need to share a large part of those responsibilities with administrators from their member business customers. Schedule Fusions custom branding option keeps their customer users focused on their brand while fostering ideas and enriching their growing business relationships.

Arts & Entertainment

The Metro Arts Center hosts a variety of self-produced shows but nearly half of their programs are rentals. Located across the city, they manage four facilities, each with three or more primary venues and a host of related production and rehearsal rooms. Before using Schedule Fusion, facility managers had to coordinate with paper and online forms. It drove everyone insane and created stress and conflict. Worse, they would lose rental revenue from time to time thanks to inadvertently double booking facilities or resources.

Agriculture

Twin Feathers Lakes Produce Greenhouse & CSA, a family owned sustainable farm, has been expanding. They rent more than three times the acreage of fields as their farm proper, which are spread across two counties. Managing the growing array of equipment, buildings, livestock, supplies, and workers wasn’t just challenging, it was beginning to become debilitating. Accidentally double booking seasonal workers meant slower harvests and lost sales. Schedule fusion allows each generation of the family responsible for overseeing operations easily avoid conflicts and Schedule Fusion’s mobile readiness means resource management follows them into each and every field and pasture.

Corporate & Co-Working Office Environments

It doesn’t take long for a growing business environment to realize that even a dozen shared rooms can become a scheduling bottleneck with multiple departments jockeying for time and resources. Schedule Fusion not only makes short work of the scheduling needs but executives can use the app to measure how much departmental workloads. Tech department says they are overworked? Just use the event filter and see at a glance every event they are involved with within a month. Creative is looking for a 48-hour period to shut down for renovations and tech upgrades? Here. You. Go. Instant options. Can’t figure out where all the projectors have gone? Click. Boom. They’re over there getting hoarded by account sales reps. In the end, the app not only schedules events, it solves problems and it brings teams together thus promoting peace on earth.
