Homebase

Homebase is well suited for small business owners and startups who need to track employee hours more efficiently, and who desire for their employees to be able to directly compliment each other, or have more control over the ability to trade shifts. It is less appropriate for larger businesses that have multiple departments, or businesses with few departments and employees who may be scheduled in more than one department.

Nifty

I've found myself recommending Nifty to other business owners as well as for personal use. I've personally found it to be invaluable when it comes to:
  • Daily / Weekly / Monthly / Quarterly recurring tasks
  • Creating templates for company processes such as new product creation, marketing strategy, on-boarding, quarterly goals, content management
  • Having forms zapped into a new task from multiple locations ensuring they're never overlooked
  • Having clear milestones and timelines for projects
  • Communicating on projects, tasks, and just in general
  • Assigning different components of projects to different people
  • Creating prior requirements that must be completed before completing the task

Pros

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

Homebase

  • The messaging features in Homebase are not consistent across the platform. In the app you can mass message everyone, however using the website you cannot, at least not at the price point that we are using.
  • The roles for employees and how to navigate them can be confusing especially when trying to schedule one employee in two different departments.
  • The separation of departments is a bit rigid and makes it difficult for universal employees to be scheduled easily.

Nifty

  • Nifty's private chat feature doesn’t work well.
  • Its interface is complex most specifically for beginners.

Nifty

We've tried several project management tools and most of them lacked the features we exactly needed. Jira was the last we tested and it was complicated to handle as projects grew bigger. Nifty is structured well and has major features that can handle big projects and does well in keeping track of current and past projects. The whole team loves Nifty

Return on Investment

Homebase

  • Homebase has made the day to day management of employees easier, freeing up time for management to work on other things that help secure customer satisfaction.
  • It has also made payroll easier since it's implementation and allowed for fewer mistakes than the previous manual method, leading to less monetary mistakes and happier employees.
  • Homebase has made monitoring hours and overtime, as well as completion of internship and volunteer hours, much easier to monitor, leading to less confusion and more satisfied volunteers, interns, and payroll managers
Amy DiMouro | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nifty

  • It's paid for itself many times over in being able to use just one platform instead of paying for multiple platforms to do what Nifty does in pieces
  • The time saved from knowing all project management is in one central location
  • Time saved from having templates and the ease of use
