Likelihood to Recommend

Buddy Punch

I think that is very convenient as far as tracking your employees when they are punching in or out to ensure they are physically at the location they are supposed to be for that shift. I also think that the option to download this app to your personal phone is amazing, it makes it more convenient to punch in or out when you aren't near a laptop or a residence to use one. The feature of being able to attach a note with your punches explaining possible late punchers or absences is very beneficial to the employee allows show proof if needed.

Hubstaff
is a great tool for businesses and I would recommend it to all businesses that
are exclusively managing remote workers. Hubstaff is one of the best choices
for such businesses as it is equipped with all pivotal features that will help
you in giving exact direction to your business. Moreover, it offers spot-on
technical support as well which is a great thing. It is one of the best
suitable tools for every company regardless of its size and equally proves helpful
for freelancers as well.

Pros

Buddy Punch

  • Their customer service is second to none. We have requested several changes over the years for the web interface and app; I think all the requests we've made were implemented by this point. I only wish this was the case with other companies we utilize.
  • They allow you to set different pay rates based on department which allows us to pay employees more for the skilled jobs they perform versus the more basic work they perform. This is a huge benefit to a small company as it encourages employees to strive for more skilled work and they keep moving up the ladder to become even better assets to the company.
  • The reports you can run are very thorough and work very well for us when it comes time to enter payroll.
  • Having the ability to set alerts has allowed us to cut back on unnecessary overtime as employees can get reminders prior to going over. We can also set reminders for employees to punch in/out for the ones that have a tendency to forget.

Hubstaff

  • It has all the features that need to have while managing the project like screen capturing, sending invoices, create and view reports, pay and quick insights.
  • It also gives me the reports of my team effectiveness.
  • It tracks all the project progress along with team effectiveness and productivity at the workplace, gives me all the insights into team performance, and also helps me to track team productivity easily.
  • Another great feature that Hubstaff has which is its integration module.

Cons

Buddy Punch

  • Sometimes I need to check back to be sure I'm still punched in.
  • The indicator between punched in and out is not very indicative of if I am or not.
  • I want to total hours not just by the week but by pay periods 1-15 days, 16-end of [the] month.

Hubstaff

  • While setting up automatic payroll capabilities I have to pass through difficult steps.
  • If I talk about its customer support it is very much inspiring and effective too.
  • Difficulty in integration is a serious issue I think that needs to be noticed. Sometimes dragging and dropping features is found to be a bit difficult.
  • There should be an option for live chatting.

Hubstaff has always responded to support requests in a timely manner and has kept me in the loop of changes.When contacting them about future changes/features they've always been upfront on whether that is a change they are looking to make and when that change may occur. Finally, if the person I have communicated with was unable to resolve, they always escalated to the next best person who can answer/resolve.

Alternatives Considered

Buddy Punch

We originally scheduled and ran payroll through Homebase, but in the last few months the software became very buggy, customer service was slow and when they did respond, was not helpful. When we cancelled our account they didn't even try to make things right. We are so happy that Buddy Punch is like us--taking care of their clients and really invested in their success!

Wrike has a task based system that you can clock time against, but it just wasn't flexible enough for the type of work we do, particularly the one offs. HubStaff is also really simple to use, so anyone can get started with it without any training or previous knowledge required. It doesn't take up a lot of space and I can manage it from the top of my screen in addition to the app itself. It also has a phone app which is great if some employees occasionally travel

Return on Investment

Buddy Punch

  • Efficiency has definitely gone up switching to Buddy Punch. Ive never quantified specific hours or time lapse it has given to my personal managerial efficiency. But it has without doubt.
  • I can see a better overview of the employees I need to be concerned with and not have to filter out others not concerning me.
  • Ease of use has decreased mental stress and angst in maneuvering employee time cards.

  • Our clients are satisfied because all the billing hours can be verified.
  • It is very easy to use, just click on the start button and that’s it.
  • You can select the activity you are working on to match it with the daily reports.

We offer three plans, each with a monthly or annual payment option. We offer tiers, as you have more employees you move into the next tier. It's an all-inclusive fee (not a per-user fee) and includes access to our website/mobile apps from as many locations and devices as needed. There are no startup, cancellation, support, or additional fees of any kind. There are no taxes either, so you'd only need to worry about the monthly/annual subscription price.
