What is Homebase?

Homebase is an employee scheduling, time tracking and communications tool for businesses and their employees within industries such as retail, hospitality and health and beauty. The platform aims to automate and streamline employee scheduling and time tracking by providing features such as team calendars, time clocks, automatic notifications and budget forecasting.

Key benefits of using Homebase

  • Employee scheduling: Create your work schedule, make changes on the fly, and instantly share it with employees. With the free Homebase app, employees always know when to work because they have the up-to-date schedule right in their pockets.

  • Time tracking: Easily track employee hours, breaks, and overtime with the Homebase time clock. Employees clock in and out for shifts on smartphones, tablets, computers, and POS devices, and Homebase automatically creates online timesheets making payroll prep a breeze.

  • Payroll: Your timesheets instantly convert into hours and wages in Homebase Payroll. When you run payroll, Homebase calculates taxes and paychecks, sends direct deposits to your team, and automatically pays and files your payroll taxes. Plus, your employees get on-demand access to their pay stubs, W-2s, and 1099s in the Homebase app.

  • Team management & HR: Our all-in-one app helps you run a better team. Post jobs, manage applicants, and onboard new hires. Organize your team roster, paperwork, and information. Manage time-off requests and PTO policies. Control labor costs, and get help to stay compliant with federal and state labor laws.

    Pros
    The ability for them to request days off on the app is amazing because I do not have to remember all the days, it comes up while I'm making the schedule.
    We are using the free features of home base and couldn’t not be happier. It is reliable, accessible, and just plain awesome.
    I love the ease of making schedules and tracking of hours. I also love the fact of when hiring someone I can send them the invite and send them a schedule right away.
    Cons
    With applicant messages, there's no way to end the communications/block disqualified applicants so I've had former applicants continually message and harass with no solution from Homebase.
    I don’t like surprises and that happens. That feature alone is my only complaint.
    The only problem I have is once my drivers download the app it can be difficult logging on the first time.

    Game Changer

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Finally getting up to speed with technology. We had so many issues with our previous time clock provider, I'm so glad we found Homebase!

    Pros

    Being able to use the software anywhere and have the ability to change the schedule, communicate with staff, find coverage and my staff to always be up to date with what's going on.

    Cons

    Sometimes staff tell me they don't get notifications of schedule change when I post it.

    Everyone loves Homebase

    Reviewed 8 months ago
    Pros

    User friendly, highly functional, efficient and effective mobile platform, great customer service! I've never had an HR or work app that employees and management unequivocally love ... but Homebase hits the mark for everyone!

    Cons

    Homebase costs us more overall than any other products we've used but it's worth the money. The "time off" tracking functionality is really basic and not as robust as I wish it was.

    I've never seen so many bugs....

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Bad,bad,bad. Customer service is responsive but there are just soooo many bugs with this software.

    Pros

    Very easy to use. The user interface is very simple and easy to navigate.

    Cons

    I feel like this is a beta software that should not have been rolled out yet. We have been using it for a week and have had issues every day since we started using it. Basic things that you think should just work doesn't work. Example: All my employees have a 1 hour, unpaid lunch everyday. They clock in and clock out on this required one hour lunch but Homebase is still counting it in their total...
