Original Press Release:
Sign-Out Board Online Schedule Makes Its Debut
NY-based Sign-Out Board is a recently unveiled website offering small and midsized businesses an innovative way to view and post employee schedules. Developed as a solution to poor office communication and a way to save valuable time spent "checking the board" for peoples' whereabouts, this new service keeps staff and management informed about office events, meetings and personnel activities, from desktop or laptop.

Recently reviewed in the June 2004 issue of ComputerUser magazine (online version: www.computeruser.com/articles/2306,11,71,1,0601,04.html ), this website is an upcoming, innovative tool for business. Essentially an online "mark-it" board, with the look and feel of a traditional dry-erase marker board, Sign-Out Board's smooth interface and online accessability make it an efficient and welcome alternative to the standard office wall board. Unlike competing database and scheduling software, Sign-Out Board's attraction is in its simplicity and "up-front" presentation of information.
At work, home or on the road, users may view and edit their schedules from any online connection securely, with real-time updates ensuring that posted information remains current. Weekly schedules are modeled on the standard Monday through Friday business workweek, and a simple pull-down menu allows users to select any given week in a five-year period. This look-ahead capability makes the board ideal for long-term planning and anticipating future work loads.
Board security is maintained through the use of company I.D.'s and Passwords, and further enhanced by allowing board administrators to limit usage by assigning access levels to individual employees. For record purposes, users are prevented from altering prior-week schedules, although any past week may be viewed and printed as needed.
Sign-Out Board's unlimited capacity can accommodate firms staffing five or five hundred people. And since its "mark-it" board format displays all employee names alphabetically on one scrolling screen, finding an individual's schedule is fast and easy. One handy feature found is the space-saving "Comment" function which allows users to supplement their posted schedule information with "hidden" notes or instructions, viewable as pop-up "tooltip" messages with a simple mouse-over pass.
Both time-saving and informative, Sign-Out Board is an ideal tool for managing personnel in any size business. Real estate offices, law firms, brokers, staffing agencies, security and sales companies, hospitals - any organization that needs up-to-the-minute information about staff whereabouts - will benefit from Sign-Out Board's ease of use and online convenience.
For more information, visit www.sign-out-board.com or contact the site manager Stephen Pool, at email@example.com. The site offers a Demo Board that allows visitors a hands-on opportunity to try the software before joining, and membership registration includes a two-week free trial that gives new users a chance to evaluate the service with no obligation.
