In terms of accounting, our current accounting software Exchequer does not talk to BigChange, therefore there should be customized reports created to support it. The most complicated option is testing the report and understanding what is needed. The best job BigChange does is job related as described in previous questions.

As a supervisor this software is a big help for us to be able to make a proper tracking of our task force, without interfering or being over the shoulder, the variety of options available is great, while I had no full control of the software by company regulations I was able to use it in specific for the managing of the shifts and performance of our teams.

The training came from one of our associates it was not directly from a Workmate employee, however, it was good enough to let us understand it, and the person who gave us the training was open to ask questions even after the training ended, however as it was really easy to use, we only contacted him for small details.

It was not my decision to use it, it was the software available for that current campaign in the company, being honest while both of them are excellent to work with, the design in OnShift is more user friendly, most of my colleagues were in agreement with that, as for Workmate, it was really helpful but some times we were confused by the user interface, it wasn't very negative but it really gets on your nerves.

  • The learning curve is a bit slow at the beginning and we needed some time and several weeks to adapt to the system.
  • We have also had to use external technical support because we have had no response from Workmate technical support.
  • It has made it easier for us in the HR department, which means faster work in less time.
