Using Message Center to solve staffing challenges

Properly staffing facilities represents senior care operators’ most pressing challenge. Every day inefficient and disjointed scheduling communication exasperate this problem as operators strive to fill open shifts. SmartLinx Message Center immediately connects managers and employees to key staffing information and facilitates two-way, real-time messaging, so they can easily work together to fill scheduling gaps.

For example, SmartLinx helps automatically alert s select employees of open shifts and then collects, sorts, and presents responses, generating clear audit trails for all messages. SmartLinx Message Center sorts and organizes all SMS text messages and consolidates them in easy-to-access threads.

“SmartLinx Message Center exemplifies our commitment to equipping senior care operators with the tools they need to resolve communication gaps and staffing inefficiencies before they turn into big problems,” said SmartLinx CEO Marina Aslanyan. “We designed this solution to simplify two-way employee communication and quickly fill open shifts, by providing a one-stop shop for all SMS texts and clear audit trails.”

Because SmartLinx Message Center enables administrators to see all employee texts in one place and highlights new and unread texts as soon as they appear, they’ll never miss another message or waste time searching through message threads again.
