Dispatchers face more job stress because of funding cuts and turnover. The main sources of dispatcher stress are:

In summary, the annual cost of stress related healthcare, turnover and missed work is $300 Billon annually in the United States. This is a big problem.
The Dispatch Improvement® cycle is designed to provide a 100% closed loop action process to iteratively improve operations and control these factors. Through capturing all dispatch interactions including voice, video and text, and making it 100% searchable, you are able to perform dispatcher QA, analyze the results and take action. Learning on demand training is a critical part of the action required and fills the dispatcher skill gaps.
Once an 8 or 16-hour online course is completed, you can track the results and perform the Dispatch Improvement cycle again. This allows you to trend performance in your dispatch center. The results are less turnover, manageable stress and better service. Improving dispatch operations saves lives.
