WebSCS stands for Web-Based Service Coordination System.
Developed by staffing professionals, for staffing professionals, this software provides a secure, centralized, complete solution for every staffing need. From filling shifts, to recruiting employees, this system has taken every detail into account.

access, and all information is secure, encrypted, and private.

Whether technically savvy or computer shy, you'll find WebSCS easy to navigate. This point and click software is easy to use, and also offers the flexibility of using hotkeys. The menu on the top of the screen is a drop-down menu. Once you select an option from these menus, a new window within WebSCS will open. It can be resized vertically, moved around the screen, and even minimized to the top of the window in
WebSCS for later access. Each window has four icons in the upper right corner. The first icon is a shortcut to a contact form for administration. The second icon will open the "Help" Screen for the active window. The third icon will minimize the window, and the fourth icon will close the window. Each window provides easy access to the "Help" Screen.
WebSCS allows multiple windows to be opened at the same time, and has a window manager that allows you to quickly switch back and forth between open windows.
The background to WebSCS can be set to any custom image. The logged on user, their access level, the date and time, the user's IP address, and a help-button appear the top of the page below the menu. On the bottom of the page, a Google search bar is present.
There are seven (7) different types of users in WebSCS, one for each level in the system. Each level can only access levels below it in the hierarchy, but not necessarily all of them.
Access every level in the system, as well as configuration settings.
- Corporate Agency
Access the agencies belonging to it, as well as corporate clients,
clients, and employees joined to those agencies, and the units at those clients.
Access corporate clients, clients, and employees that are joined to it,
as well as any units at those clients.
- Corporate Client
Access the clients that are joined to it and the units at those clients.
Access itself and its units.
Access only itself.
Access their own information in the system.
The hierarchy works through relationships between levels and each level can have a number of different groups. For example, there may be two corporate agency groups called "CorpAge 1" and "CorpAge 2". Users assigned to these groups will all be corporate agency level users. However, each will
have access to different lower level groups, depending upon the relationships. So, if there is an agency level group "Agency 1" and it has no relationship with the corporate agency group "CorpAge 1", then corporate agency level users in group "CorpAge 1" will not be able to access the information for the agency level group "Agency 1". A relationship between groups must exist in order for higher level users to see
information on the lower level groups.
Each level group will have a complete profile in the related function in WebSCS. Every function contains its own feature set, expanding the information that the profile can capture. One of the most useful features, available at every level, is the Notes feature. Notes are categorized and contain dates, times, and author information. An
attachment can be added to any note in the system to help illustrate its contents. Any note can be setup to require a follow-up, meaning that an action is required, and that follow-up can be assigned to any user in the system. By utilizing the reporting system, these notes and/or follow-ups are easily managed and reviewed.
** Depending on the package that is purchased, all levels may not be available.
User Access Codes
Users are not only limited by their access level. Each user is given a set of access codes. These tell the system which functions and features they have access to, and if they can read, write, or modify that information. The administrator can control exactly what functions and features every user has available to them.
What does it all mean?
WebSCS has been designed to provide every level of your organization with the information they need, when they need it. The main interface functions like a famliar Windows application.

Implementation of WebSCS
The implementation phase varies from company to company. The total time required will depend upon the number of branch offices, agencies, employees, and clients for which your company keeps a record. We will work closely with you to ensure there are no questions or problems from implementation to completion. An average implementation phase is two weeks.
Three (3) initial online web-training sessions are included in every package. The first is for executives and administration. The second is for end-users. The third is an optional session. Usually scheduled one week after the second training session, it is geared towards answering questions. All three training sessions are conducted online through the use of
WebEx online conferencing systems.
In addition to these training sessions, additional sessions are available for a fee. Downloadable tutorials are also available at our support section.

Even though a user exists within the system, that user must still be granted
permission to access your database.
- Active Directory Users and Policies
If a user account does not first exist within Microsoft's Active Directory,
a secure metabase within our server, they will have no access.
- WebSCS User Account and Settings
Each user must also be entered into the WebSCS custom user list and must
not be blocked.
* Access Level
Each user is assigned an access level which controls the level of
information that they are able to view.
* Access Codes
Each user is assigned access codes. There are individual access codes
for each function of the system, as well as controlling read/write permission.
- Event Logging
Every accessed page in the system is logged so a complete record of everything viewed or saved is kept.
