HotSchedules

For small to medium-sized companies HotSchedules works great when business is very static. If you are simply using HotSchedules for a schedule writing tool, it is phenomenal. However, it does miss the mark as a labor control software. Needs more controls to keep managers aware of spending versus historical sales data.

We get over 3,000 calls/month for a variety of Radiology scheduling requests, so we needed a scheduling system that had the scalability and optics to allow us to manage this giant beast. We had previously been relying only on people scheduling between their visits and between checking in visitors, so we had no dedicated team of schedulers or a software to support. We are only on our first month, but have seen amazing results thus far.

Pros

HotSchedules

  • Communication is so simple on HotSchedules. Whether it is communicating a new schedule release, or a quick note about tonight's shift we as managers are able to easily communicate and know that it will reach our team through text notifications, or email notifications.
  • The Meal Break planning tool is very useful in being able to help our floor leaders clearly understand and plan for what breaks are needed throughout the shift. This allows them to come up with a strategic game plan quickly and spend more time with our guests.
  • Shift Swaps and Releases are so seamless. This is our favorite tool as it makes helping our team cover shifts extremely easy and painless. On the flip side it also makes staff who want more hours be able to find what is available in real time.

  • The quality of the calls are great, i rarely have to report any type of call issues
  • The admin portal is very organized and it makes it easier to find information about users and stations
  • The prebuilt reports that it has are very useful when it comes to assisting users in regards to finding information

Cons

HotSchedules

  • Clocking In and out can be a little slow. It takes longer to clock in then our previous method. Before we just had a card you swiped and it would clock you in. Took 2 seconds. Now with the Hotschdules method we use it take 30 seconds or so. Not a huge issue but it can add up if you have one computer and a line of employees waiting to clock in.
  • Time Cards. It does not allow you to view someones current time until the "punch" has ended. If the manager would like to check what time the employee clocked in/out from lunch they have to wait until the employee has clocked out for the day before the record is generated. As a shift lead you may send and employee to lunch but forget to note what time you sent them. Awhile passes and you feel like they should be back by now, so you want to go in and see what time they left for lunch but it does not show you that punch record because the employee is still "clocked in" they are just on their "Meal Break"
  • The ability to customize the restrictions for Clocking in and out. You can set it up so that employees can only clock in from a specific location, however if you have a manager who is allowed to work from home they would not be able to clock in without being at the same location as set in the software. It would be nice to see it able to be customized per user.

  • When making a manual outbound it would be nice to be able to enter the number and just hit "enter" instead of having to hover with the mouse, wait for the dialing prompt to appear then click it.
  • It would be nice if NICE CXone didn't send you a new call while you're entering a manual outbound number.
  • When scheduling a callback, NICE CXone will kick you out of that record/callback schedule screen before you can complete scheduling if a call comes in while scheduling the call.
  • When scheduling a call, it would be nice to just enter the time instead of having to click on the hour then enter it, click on the minutes, and hope that you click on the right spot. If you don't click on the right spot, you'll have to get super close to the screen to hit the right spot to enter the minutes.

I will highly use inContact Cxone even if I am at a different company because, as I mentioned before, inContact makes it easy to manage, view reports, modify skills, and multitask. Also, it does not freeze, it is easy to resolve any issue, and easy to log in.

6 Years of Experience provides me the insight on the upgrades and changes that HotSchedules has done to improve the experience of its users. There are so many features that we still have not started or used to the fullest, but we believe that we are currently getting a strong value out of the money that is paid for this product.

NICE inContact CXone performs very well even on old computers that are limited in resources. I use a older computer with limited memory and it seems to handle NICE inContact CXone very well in most cases. There will be times when it acts up for whatever reason bust over ninety percent of the time.

On rare occasions a phone call has been required to find the solution to a problem, the HotSchedules response staff have been helpful, courteous, and genuinely seem to care for their clients and take pride in what they do. The consistent development and fine tuning of the platform, interface, and mobile environment shows that this is not a program full of people who rest on their laurels.

inContact only allows specific users to contact them for support. Even though I use the product daily and it accounts for a large amount of my workload, I still have to contact an authorized user to create an incident. These users are managers and their schedules are very busy. This can result in delays in incidents being opened and resolved.

It took a while for the implementation but in our company was all good because we got the best people to handle the implementation. They were able to handle any questions or issues that users asked regarding the new tasks. At the moment, we are all good with this software.

HotSchedules

I have not used any other Scheduling software for employees. As a campground manager in the summer season, we are using campground master for reservations. it is very similar in process to employee scheduling. the ability to the user of that program to set up their own parameters for time and reservations is something that would benefit the employee scheduling software.

Interactive IntelligenceCisco Express and Enterprise. InContact CXOne is very solid as a cloud platform and has great ease of use. However, it has areas of improvements to make it better, especially the Engage side of the company should be taken out of the stone age. Look at Calabrio's reliance and support as a benchmark for recordings.

The scalability is awesome because of the multiple uses it is able at performing for users. A large organization with several user can use this product in the same fashion that a smaller organization could. I believe the larger organization would see more benefits because of the users ability between communication coworkers

Return on Investment

HotSchedules

  • Saving time on scheduling means our managers can focus more on guest experience, managing the floor and other areas that contribute to the success of our business.
Amanda Zelichowski | TrustRadius Reviewer

NICE CXone (formerly NICE inContact)

  • It impacts our company daily as we utilize NICE CXone services every day, 24/7.
  • It is relatively easy to use and doesn't cause problem: The NOC shift doesn't get to have IT support. The fact that we don't hear any issue from them shows that NICE CXone is a stable platform that doesn't have much problem and easy to use.
  • The report impacted my work because I don't need to contact specific supervisors for staffs' attendance.
