Gone are the days of one-size fits all. Today we access scheduling systems from just about every size electronic device and screen ranging from smartphones to multi-screen desktop computers. What some espouse as the cutting-edge, a "mobile optimized" system, while important to recognizing your web-enabled smartphone and opening the phone's browser, by itself does not deliver the screen-to-data efficiency that you can now have available as a decision maker.
That mobile device you are working on may be a small smartphone screen or it may be a large screen tablet. The computer you are working on may be a small laptop screen or a large multi-screen command center desktop. Today's leading systems are taking your needs for data into consideration and intelligently adjusting to your exact screen size automatically, seamlessly, and INTELLIGENTLY to deliver the maximum amount of critical data that can fit onto any sized screen.
Responsive Design systems dynamically change and PRIORITIZE the amount of data that is delivered to your screen while minimizing the need to scroll. By detecting your screen size, a 4-week schedule is visible on a large computer monitor (with much shift detail), but will also automatically reconfigure the data to be viewed on a small laptop screen in the best way possible. Responsive Design systems effectively and efficiently utilize your screen size to intelligently deliver the critical data that you need to make a completely informed scheduling decision.
Many companies talk about being responsive to their customer, but are the systems they build responsive to you every time you logon no matter what device you choose to use? Scheduling is a critical task, so select a scheduling system that has you, and what you choose to use, in the design.
