Overall Satisfaction with Deputy
My business uses Deputy on a daily basis. It helps my employees to clock in, request time off, and keep track of their hours. I also write the weekly schedules on it and can check staffing expenses as I do it. I like that it allows me to input information on my staff such as contact information, pay, and job qualifications.
- Makes scheduling easy
- Makes clocking in and out easy
- Has an easy to use app for your phone
- Makes requesting time off and seeing your schedule easy
- I would like more customizable options per store
- Having an option to just have leave or unavailability, but not both offered
- Time saved writing schedules
- Notifications when employees are late
- Makes it easier to keep track of labor expenses
Kronos was not user-friendly. It was very limited on what could be done and my staff struggled to use it as well. Deputy is updated and continues to update. One of the biggest differences is my staff being able to swap shifts with other staff members. This gives so much more relief to management, as they do not have to figure it out for the staff member.
Do you think Deputy delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with Deputy's feature set?
Did Deputy live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of Deputy go as expected?
Would you buy Deputy again?
The fact that my older staff, that do not know how to use a computer, can accurately clock in and out, request time off, and view their schedules, shows how easy Deputy is to use. The app you can download on your phone, it makes these actions, even more, user-friendly.
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.
