Likelihood to Recommend

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

It does all aspects you need for timekeeping and PTO accruals. They also have back-end options to apply rules to applied breaks or PTO rollovers from year to year. The system is very complex, but at the same time, very simple to use.

Cons

Nifty

  • It is not possible to edit time logs because there are no comment sections in time logs.
  • I just want to see more templates added.
Candace Mitchell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Novatime

  • It can be very slow and delayed in punches.
  • It doesn't always capture everyone's punches immediately.
  • There are quite a few areas where you have to be mindful of saving it correctly otherwise the information is all lost and that can be frustrating for users.

On the employee's side of things, Novatime is pretty intuitive and fairly easy to use. All they have to do is either press a button to punch in or punch out. If they are entering in their hours, all they have to do is type in the number of hours per day.On the manager's side of things, Novatime is also fairly easy to use. It highlights in red any missed punches and in green any OT that the employee has. There are links on the homepage of the manager's page that will lead them to a list of all their employees' missed punches for a pay period and they can fix them all before payroll is due.Novatime becomes a bit more complicated on the administrator's side. The issues I have run into with Novatime normally come after updates/upgrades to their system. They have been getting better, but the administrator's side is still a bit clunky and takes a while to find what you are looking for. It is not as intuitive as the other sides and takes a bit of computer knowledge to figure it out.

The program itself can be customized in many different ways to meet the needs of the company/organization that it is working with. The charts/graphs on the new homepage are somewhat helpful and link to useful information. It has some really nice scheduling features that allow managers to see the difference between hours expected to work and actual hours worked as well as overtime, absences, and non-scheduled shifts. Processing payroll is quite simple. PTO request off is straightforward.

Alternatives Considered

Nifty

There's no comparison. Nifty does what all of these do all in one place (with the exception of Slack's community aspect with hashtagging - not sure if Nifty can do this, never tried)Nifty even has the ability to import directly from many other platforms - I've personally imported projects from Trello and Asana, saving tons of time in migration.

The product is easy to use, and everyone picks up on it quickly. It is less expensive, and has more to offer than any other product I’ve found.

Return on Investment

Nifty

  • Its scheduling features are very helpful in project management.
  • I don’t like its mobile application and needs a lot of improvement.
  • There should be a dashboard for the analytics.
Wiliam Alifie-Joise | TrustRadius Reviewer

Novatime

  • We've had great positive impact from our employees and supervisors, who have been really appreciative of improvements over our last timekeeping system.
  • Less time has been spent in dealing with system issues/errors for timesheets, etc.
