Overall Satisfaction with Deputy

I use Deputy for my employees to sign in and out of work and lunch breaks. I also use Deputy to approve employee work hours so that I can process payroll. Deputy is also linked to Xero which has simplified our payroll process immensely. I also use Deputy to create a roster [that] can be seen by all my employees.
  • Roster creation and sharing
  • Simplify payroll process
  • Timesheets for sign in and out
  • Make Mobile app easier to use
  • Have more functions available on the mobile app
  • More options to remind employees who don't sign in eg phone vibrates or rings
  • Saved administration time where payroll used to take 2 hours it now takes 5 minutes
  • Accountability for employees as Deputy creates a map of where employees sign in and out from
  • Saved time for creating rosters as I used to create a word document each week which I would need to enter each employees name whereas the information is now saved
  • Rosters can be copied to another week so a roster could be completed with the touch of a button and then adjusted
I haven't used any other product except manual word documents. Obviously using Deputy has had a huge impact on the efficiency of my administrative tasks such as timesheets rosters and payroll.

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?


I love Deputy's usability. The reason I didn't give 10 is because of the mobile app version which is difficult to use when I want to change the roster and I have accidentally changed the roster several times because as I try and zoom in to my screen it moved roster shifts around and I can't select an undo option
Implementation was simple and easy
Well suited where you have educators who need to sign in and out of shifts and need to verify where they signed in from. Useful where you need to create rosters and if you use Xero as it makes the process much simpler. I can't think of a scenario where Deputy would not be useful.

Using Deputy

1 - Business functions include rostering, payroll, human resources and compliance.
1 - Administrative skills. Person supporting Deputy needs to be organised and able to learn and take initiative to understand the system and requirements.
  • Rostering
  • Payroll
  • Leave applications
  • Compliance documents
  • Compliance documents
  • Using the map to ensure employees are logging on from the correct location and therefore shift times are accurate
  • remembering leave when rostering
It is very easy to use and simplifies administrative tasks such as payroll by connecting to Xero directly
