Benefits:

Schedule automatically populates my calendar on my iPhone. After my initial review, the company seemed to make improvements in the speed of their servers, so it does not take as long to input shift requests.

Drawbacks:

Even with a wide computer monitor, it is not possible to view all of the days of the month on one screen without scrolling from side to side. The iPhone app is usable, but requires looking through too many potential shifts just to determine who is working on any given day.

Benefits:

Multiple request options and customizable

Drawbacks:

Excessive lag time

In sum:

We use this for a large physician group of 60, staffing 3 locations. The program initially seemed to do the job fairly well, but still required a lot of manual scheduling input on the part of the scheduler. Now, the system seems to be overwhelmed (I assume the servers can't keep up with the volume), and every time you input a single day request, there is up to a 45 second wait before the request goes through. In the interim, you can't make any other requests. It easily takes 30 minutes for a provider to enter their requests for a one month schedule.

Benefits:

Initially we started with Excel and tried another scheduling software and finally ended up with Lightning Bolt - glad we did, it has created the best schedule for us. The consultants at Lighting Bolt are great - training was straight forward and the software is easy to use. I'm assuming it is something with the algorithm but the software handles itself and fills any gaps in the schedule.

Drawbacks:

Initial pricing seemed a bit out of our range - it's been worth it. Training takes a few weeks which I would like to be faster to start using asap.

In sum:

Best scheduling we've ever had.
