Likelihood to Recommend
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 Read full review
We continue to remain the only professional baseball team that utilizes NOVAtime for our scheduling of staff, mostly because it was designed to schedule hospital workers. The lag time when updating the ASM is extremely time consuming and the inability to work in multiple internet tabs or windows makes it that much more inefficient. I am sure it is a fantastic system for other organizations but it continues to be a challenge for us.
Read full review Pros An overview of project timelines and milestones. One-on-one or group conversations. Tracking the status of projects and tasks. Read full review The report database is very extensive--there is a report for everything Easy to use Various ways for EEs and supervisors to access information Read full review Cons Time Expense could be improved since we cannot edit the previous/past time logs entered. Lacks expense management and Purchase order management functionality Newest product updates are not always stable and I had to reach Nifty's support team a couple of times in the past to fix the issues with new updates e.g. our document management and meeting integrations had to be re-authorized Read full review There does need to be more support and knowledge when it comes to alternate workweek schedule types (9/80, etc.), as there have been a few unique challenges with those.

The overall satisfaction within the organization has been luke warm, at best. The software may be more conducive for a hospital but I believe there is a reason why we are the lone baseball team utilizing it.

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.

There's no comparison. Nifty does what all of these do all in one place (with the exception of
'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
, 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.

Read full review We have had a few scenarios where the PTO accrual dropped off and it did take 3 attempts of reaching out to customer service to get it sorted. The customer service team has collaborated with me in creating new PTO categories to automate certain needs to save me some time. Read full review ScreenShots
