OmniSpear, Inc. has a long history of working with non-profit organizations throughout Dayton, Ohio and the surrounding areas. One of the organizations we work with is Habitat for Humanity of Miami and Shelby Counties (HFHMSCO). Their charitable work goes beyond just building houses. We were tasked to help them convey that message and their mission.
Once Habitat international released new branding and messaging standards, the existing HFHMSCO site had become outdated and needed a full refresh. We worked closely with their staff to outline the elements and structure of the site in preparation for a new look. Together, we slimmed down the site helping them target their message to the appropriate audiences. Once the structural outline was complete, we moved on to their branding and messaging. The new site features strong graphical elements which reflect the new colors of Habitat for Humanity. We also direct visitors with clear calls to action and provide engagement through the use of a news feed and blog.
We are proud of our work in the community by assisting organizations like Habitat for Humanity. You may learn more about their mission by visiting their new site: https://hfhmco.org

We are excited to announce that OmniSpear has completed development of the Intellicasting Andriod and iPhone mobile app, allowing restaurant franchise owners to efficiently schedule shifts and communicate with the entire staff via. e-mail, text and push notifications. Available for download from Google Play or the App Store.
High-level features include:
- Allow employees to view their schedule
- Request to pickup vacant shifts
- Request time off
- Pick up shifts from other employees
- Communicate better with management and other employees
- Receive email, text, and push notifications
- Update your availability
Ability to Release a Shift
View the daily schedule for all employees or view the schedule for just your shifts.
Request to Pickup Vacant Shifts
Select the “+” icon from any vacant shift in orange to notify your management team that you would like to pickup the shift. Managers will review the request and can provide approval.
Request to Pickup Vacant Shifts
Select the “x” icon from any of your assigned shifts to release the shift to the shift pickup list. Releasing a shift does not mean that you are approved to take the shift off. It notifies management that you are requesting the shift off and allows for other employees to pick up the shift if they are available. Final approval must be confirmed by management.
Pick Up Shifts From Other Employees
You can view the Shift Pickup List to view manager requested shifts and employee requested shifts by selecting the “+” icon. Managers can broadcast vacant shifts that they are trying to get covered. You can also pickup shifts from other employees that they are trying to get covered.
The mobile app now makes it easier than ever to communicate with management and other employees. You can now:
- Contact other employees via text, email, or phone directly through the mobile app
- You can also set notification preferences and receive reminders via text, email, or push notifications
- Update your fixed schedule availability
With the majority of internet searches now initiating from mobile devices, responsive design is more important than ever. Responsive design allows your site to self-adjust to adequately fit mobile devices and tablets. Sites appear differently to users depending on how they are accessed – whether by a mobile device, tablet or laptop. Without responsive design, customers can experience trouble while navigating the web on handheld devices, and features of websites can even become distorted. These issues can heavily impact users and deter customers from visiting you online. At OmniSpear, we pride ourselves on our focus on responsive design. As a standard, our sites are all optimized for the best viewing capabilities on phones and tablets. We make sure your site looks its best no matter how customers get there.
