DATABASICS
Easy to use with lots of customization. The PTO request and calendar is a great tool with real-time balances easy to access. The validation table is large enough to handle hundreds of projects with dozens of sub-categories. We also like the ability to send notices on our own schedule.

Homebase
I loved using Homebase! The best feature, by far, is scheduling in shifts! It really could not be easier! For restaurants and bars it is the easiest and best software! Using the payroll feature can be very easy! The only downfall is trying to separate scheduled worked hours and overtime. The layout is simple and easy to navigate. The only real con I can think of is that lag.

Homebase
  • Homebase provides an easy way to schedule employees. Their scheduling platform is extremely user-friendly and easy to edit once the schedule is made.
  • Homebase makes it easy for employees to switch schedules on their own, a manager just simply has to approve rather than physically rescheduling both employees, this is great for any small retail business or restaurant with many hourly employees.
  • Homebase makes it easy to adjust hours that have been incorrectly clocked or clockouts that have been missed.

Cons
DATABASICS
  • The site is pretty plain and boring to look at.
  • I hear there is a mobile app in the works?

Homebase
  • Notifications could be more punctual
  • Employees should be able to pick up shifts outside of their scheduled times! Right now managers need to do it.
  • Importing hours on QBO payroll could use attention. Doesn't separate normal hours from overtime.

Good value of money. Sped up the month-end closing time.

Homebase is simpler to use. Easier to navigate and is much cheaper than other alternatives! We had trouble when I worked as they were harder to reach our ROI. Deputy was too expensive and it was the reason we decided on Homebase! Employees also find it easy to use on their end!
