Simplify and Automate Corrections Employee Scheduling

There are few businesses where employee scheduling is as critical or crucial as the Corrections industry. Your employee schedules need to ensure that the right people are at the right place at the right time and at the right cost.

You have legal and safety regulations and ratios that you have to meet. You have budget constraints, you have ever-changing staff availability and politics to contend with.

We completely understand the complexity of corrections staff scheduling. We know your pain. Why? Because we’ve built and delivered custom corrections employee scheduling solutions for some of the world’s largest corrections organizations. EmLogis is designed to be strong enough to ensure staffing compliance and flexible enough to work the way YOU want to work.


There are many benefits to using EmLogis for corrections staff scheduling. Take a look at some of the biggest and most popular benefits our corrections customers have achieved.

Staffing requirements can change daily; pods and modules open and close, inmate levels go up and down, judges send more inmates than you expect. The list goes on and on.

EmLogis allows you to quickly and easily respond to the variations in staffing that you experience every day and every hour. Because EmLogis knows your staffing requirements, it can show you when you’re not meeting those requirements, help you make the best decisions and quickly communicate them to your staff.

You have employee union requirements to satisfy, safety regulations to account for, policy mandates to meet, and employee preferences to juggle.

EmLogis can take the most complicated staff scheduling rules about when employees can and cannot work, minimum and maximum hours per day or week, maximum consecutive days worked, minimum required hours off between shifts or any other complex scheduling rules and deliver the optimum schedule, balancing all these requirements.

EmLogis helps you automatically generate schedules in minutes, not days. Automated employee-supervisor communication workflow dramatically reduces the time supervisors spend communicating and changing schedules.

Our schedule optimizer reduces the need for over-scheduling, overtime and external staffing agencies. Audit trails and status feeds eliminate the need for post-it notes, phone calls and paperwork. In short, your employees spend their time taking care of their duties, not worrying about schedules.

How much are your schedules costing you? Why does payroll never match the actual schedule? Which schedule changes are costing you the most? Who’s doing the best managing labor costs, who’s driving costs up?

Our schedule analytics module shows you exactly what’s happening and enables you to continually improve your scheduling process to reduce cost, ensure compliance, increase satisfaction and improve service levels.

You’re responsible for ensuring compliance with a bunch of regulations and mandates. You need to capture compliance information and create an unimpeachable audit-trail.

Our Compliance Logging and Reporting module quickly and easily records events that need to be captured and communicated throughout the day. Assign logs and tasks from one supervisor to another, discuss the events and mine then for patterns.
