Overall Satisfaction with Jolt

First of all, Jolt has many features included but my job consists of using only a couple of them. In the Aquatics Department, we use the Schedule Manager on a weekly basis to accurately organize and distribute an employee schedule to roughly 180 lifeguards at my facility. It's good to see we have a set price for that many employees, where the price does not increase the more employees you have. In addition to that, we are able to assign employees to roles and separate their schedules by certain levels when scheduling. We also use the Lists function to knock out checklists and documentation DOSH and OSHA require on a daily basis. It is a fast and easy way to complete these forms with multiple ways to fill them out.
  • Scheduling
  • Checklists
  • Proper Documentation
  • Roles
  • Can use for a large amount of employees.
  • Can be laggy
  • Looks like it was designed for older technology, but those are only looks.
  • It is a money-saver, we mainly got it for scheduling as a cheaper alternative to other scheduling apps.
  • Jolt comes with multiple uses in one application.
We used WhenIWork and When2Work as scheduling applications and we also used to print out documents and fill them out. In the long run, we save space on filing out these documents because Jolt saves all saved checklists on the account free of additional charge.
The usage of Jolt has made our business more efficient. Our company made the switch and have not found a better alternative since. This is an application I would recommend showing to other companies because it has lots of useful programs that can be used for many different purposes.
As said before, it is an intuitive app but the supporting technology seems like it can be updated. It only causes a little bit of lag, but other than that there is nothing wrong with it. It is easy to look past the small lag though so it is not too big of a problem. It is easy to use on the Jolt app and the Jolt Lite app for the employees. They seem to have learned the app pretty fast and overall have no problem with it as well.

Jolt is an application that is very reliable and can do a lot of things. For us, it is used on a daily basis during the season with all of the options it brings. You can make a checklist for anything on there and completely take on a digital way of working. No more paper being used for everyday tasks. With scheduling, it offers a distributing method that shows all employees and their times working for the week on a sheet that can be printed if needed. It can also be emailed or transported to an Excel sheet. Time Clock seems intuitive but our business has yet to use it. It can also send out blast messages to employees who are signed in on the Jolt Lite app on their phone if you want to send an important message.
