Life Before ML Schedules
Used a different software solution. Experienced a lot of frustration in terms of customizing the system to their needs. “Any changes we wanted to do, we had to pay them. Including setup and modifications to existing features”, explains Joshua. “Cost-wise, it was very expensive. We were nickeled and dimed and as a result we didn’t do it very often.” Joshua and his team had to conform to the constraints of the system, which led them to start looking for alternative solutions.
Life with ML Schedules
There are over 600 groups that use Warren Township’s ML Schedule’s instance and in the district, over 20 approvers and two admins - Joshua is one of them. The biggest difference for Joshua with ML Schedules has been the ability to adjust things in the system on their own. This includes things like updating spaces and space information for rental and changing internal approvers. “As we get new principals or administrators, we have a building level approver. So being able to go in and easily change who approves stuff in a particular building or area is really nice in the system,” explains Joshua, “The ability to be able to change permits and change information on groups or events is really nice.” Also nice, ML Schedules is both faster and cheaper than their previous solution according to Joshua.
