As you can see on the website we have a tourist train in our town Oisterwijk, a nice touristic place in The Netherlands. The train is for the tourist who come to Oisterwijk to visit a few nice places but also for elderly people who almost never come outside their old people’s home. We started in 2010 and we work with volunteers who are retired. They are mostly retired bus drivers and it is great to see how enthusiastic they are about their work.
Since we work with volunteers it is always difficult to schedule in advance. This program makes that easier. One of the volunteers is making the schedules when to drive etc. The schedules are not that difficult because there are only 2 people needed on a shift. But is more difficult to plan them, older people have busy schedules (babysitting etc)! Also a schedule changes sometimes because we have also groups who can reserve the train on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The train is also available for special events.

Previously we worked with an Excel spreadsheet.
We would recommend the work scheduler ShiftPlanning and I think it is a young team with a lot of knowledge and is always looking to improve the program.
It will work much easier. Korné Welmers – Oisterwijk Express
