Deputy
[My own feeling on the subject is] that large teams will probably enjoy the features much more than a smaller team. [In my opinion] I would not have signed up with Deputy had it not been for the integration with my payroll provider. [From my point of view] the cost is not worth it for a small team. [I've found] it has a lot of features geared towards big teams and those are not things you can "opt-out" of from a cost/tier standpoint [as far as I'm concerned].

Playvox
Playvox is well suited to rate and track process adherence and work quality percentual. It is also great to document coaching and track advisors' development, as well as to do knowledge checks through quizzes. It is not so appropriate if you need to see the previous coachings made, since those cannot be opened when they finished.

Cons
Deputy
  • Integration with various point of sale systems to pull sales data vs. scheduled and/or worked hours.
  • Ability to "re-invite, " change a password or fix an employee-level account if they didn't set things up correctly.
  • An easier way of loading all holidays or facility closure dates for the year. e.g. Google reminds you, Are you open for Thanksgiving this year?

  • The speed of loading the chat that I am evaluating for the customer service representative because sometimes it shows that there is an error in the load.
  • Keep a lot of information
  • It should have more languages for ease of control

The basic functionality and overall efficiency it provides is enough to renew. I still would like to see improvements in reporting and leave management, but overall it is absolutely worth it to have the program. I especially like having remote access and supervisors scheduling and approving time sheets of employees

I do not think my organization has and 2nd thought of changing the Playvox because I am sure they cannot find another option that is as easy and smooth. There is no other option at all. Playvox is being used here in every department and the company cannot run without this. Now it is a basic need of this business

Usability
Deputy
Deputy is user-friendly and easy to understand for users with basic to moderate computer knowledge. The Employee is simple and easy for employees to understand. Employees get push notifications when shifts are scheduled and can clock in and out easily directly from the phone or kiosk, or using the website. The only challenge we’ve had is the ability for management to assign leave to employees who have not yet requested time off.

Playvox is an easy-to-use platform, all features are intuitive, which makes navigation easy. I never found navigation problems, I was always able to find all the items I needed, all the information is well separated, what could improve is the possibility of moving some items, putting the ones that I use the most in evidence.

do pages load quickly? yes / Do reports complete in a reasonable time frame, given their complexity? yes i think / If Playvox integrates with any other software or systems, does it tend to slow them down? i don't know

We have had multiple live trainings (Zoom). The training at the beginning of the set up was top notch. We had some additional questions about coaching and they jumped on the opportunity to help us. We have a designated trainer and account manager.

It took me a bit to get all my staff input from our previous scheduling software. However, once all the information was there, everything went smoothly and we were able to start implementing Deputy right away. It did not take long to train my staff and have them comfortable with using the system.

From the day first, we were active on Playvox and happy with the features. It does not take much time to understand its features and its performance. A few training sessions with 'How to use' and we are experts using Playvox.

Alternatives Considered

For years we used TimeTrax systems but they were hard to use and required manual downloads of punches, networked setups, and we needed separate setups for each location. When evaluating cloud-based solutions we first tried TSheets, but the higher cost and lack of features made us choose Deputy. Our main complaint about the actual TSheets system was the IPads did not store punches when it first launched so if you lost internet it couldn't store the punches. When we were evaluating the system they were building a police station next door that resulted in intermittent internet outages and the kiosk app basically became a brick until the internet came back on.

I selected Playvox as it is the platform my organization uses. I've never worked with another platform like this. In other companies I worked, procedures, communications, and training were not saved, they were only communicated verbally and sometimes a document with what should be done, but nothing compared to the ease of using a Playvox.

Scalability

We have gone from using deputy simply to schedule a couple of members of staff on coffee shop shifts, to also scheduling staff in the retail unit part of our business, to now also scheduling team days and having remote working staff start on schedule shifts to track their working hours.

Return on Investment
Deputy
  • Hundreds of man-hours saved monthly that previously was spent on recording hours work.
  • Holiday management is very clear and support fair treatment of staff.
  • The 100% accuracy of timesheets is amazing. Once approved thousands of timesheets just land in our payroll system thanks to the export/import functions.
