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].

  • Pros : Enterprise-wide visibility to contingent
    worker headcount. Automated
    process improves cycle times, reduces manual processes. It's best for customers who already have SAP Ecosystem. Provides a seamless integration to the Clients backend SAP system. Provides advance notification of solution upgrades, patches, and revisions, especially as it relates to cloud hosted solutions. An environment secured against security violations and threats.
  • Cons : Need a good technical and integration with right skillset. The challenge of having a good clean source of Master data. Invoice processing integration and mapping with ERP/SAP needs more improvement. Needs more improvement on cloud based help from user training point of vie.

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 simple display and way you navigate the jobs page is not very intuitive. There could be better information displayed than what is there, and it doesn't always make sense in how you move from one page to another.
  • I really don't like the requirement of the last 5 digits of a candidate's social security number for the "Security ID." Some candidates are reluctant to give that out, when paired with their birth day (also required). I'm not sure why this couldn't be a different piece of information - last 5 of the primary phone number, for example.
  • Some of the field are not well-defined. For example. there is a Resume field, then an Attachments field. And the rate section isn't 100% clear, especially when entering overtime rates or discounted rates.

Likelihood to Renew

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

Again, Fieldglass is a strong contender but Fieldglass can be difficult at times to work with and not as supportive as I'd like. As so, I'd be willing to try Beeline or other top competitors

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.

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.

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.

Great SAP system to use on multiple project data protection and preparation of clear reports and financial analytics gathering the SAP solution is effective. Through the platform, all our project documents are easy to access and upload, and to manage activities and project assets allocated via the platform are excellent.

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.
