OptaPlanner EOL notice - Timefold offers support

Los Angeles, 2024/02/23 - Timefold, a platform for planning optimization, built on established open-source AI solver technology, proudly announces a strategic collaboration with NGA. This partnership aims to enhance 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline services and streamline shift planning, ensuring prompt and effective assistance for those in need. NGA’s NEXiSLifeline solution ensures that every center has the tools required to provide life-saving assistance to all citizens.

With a network of over 200 local crisis centers and 1,000’s of call takers proficient in English and/or Spanish, efficient shift planning is imperative for the seamless operation of the 988 service. To optimize this critical aspect, Timefold has partnered with NGA. Leveraging Timefold's sophisticated employee scheduling software, NGA’s NEXiSLifeline solution ensures each center maintains optimal staffing levels, with appropriately skilled call takers available at all times.

"Timefold is honored to collaborate with NGA in their mission to provide crucial support to those in need. Our optimization solutions empower centers to efficiently manage operations and deliver prompt assistance to individuals facing distress."

Maarten Vandenbroucke, CEO at Timefold

Through the integration of Timefold's cutting-edge shift planning technology, NGA remains committed to delivering around-the-clock support for those seeking help. Additionally, caller agents experience increased job satisfaction, thanks to the software's ability to consider their scheduling preferences.

“The partnership between Timefold and NGA exemplifies the positive influence that optimization technology can have on critical services. Together, we stand resolute in our mission to provide immediate and effective support to individuals navigating difficult circumstances,”

Don Ferguson, CEO at NGA

This collaboration marks another significant achievement for NGA, which in January forged a partnership with the state of California to introduce an innovative call-handling solution, NGA’s NEXiSLifeline across the entire state. This transformative system propels emergency communications into a digital realm, enhancing accuracy and ultimately saving valuable seconds and lives.
