    Pros
    I love the ease of use with this software, and the navigation of different employees' schedules. Its easy to insert times and easy to post once it is completed.
    The accountability of Jolt and ease of use is amazing. The support team is always there is the best!!! I am thankful for Jolt.
    I like jolt because Jolt is easy to use and cost effective. It makes team communication better and secured.
    Cons
    I have never had such a bad experience with a company. This is the first bad review I've written in my life.
    And availability is set as "unavailable to work. It should really be changed to when the employee is available to work, or call it "Unavailability" or something, it's just confusing.
    Customer service is horrible; they promise to get back to you but don't.

    Purchased the Jolt labeler to label in process product, but we are using it for so much more!

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Labels for in process and finished products, Very simple to use. Using for scheduling, time clock management, messages, alerts, communication, and accountability of personnel. They need to log in on an ipad to the software, and they can get their tasks right there that were set up for them. Excellent product! We are using this for so much more than what we originally purchased it for.

    Pros

    Originally purchased to label in process product. But when we started building labels, we realized we can also make finished product labels and apply them easier. We just used these for the first time for the entire day and couldn't be happier. Great quality and simple. This software has so many features and now our production manager is using this software for our staff. It can be used as a time...

    Cons

    I think we will have to use this a bit longer to find something we don't like about this. The one item we changed was that the labeler comes with 1" x 1" labels, which were too small for our use. Our account manager sent us the labels we needed immediately.

    Great software for scheduling, food & beverage companies

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I have cut my time that is spent making the schedule down from the previous program I used.

    Pros

    I have the ability to schedule as many positions to multiple employees for our Renaissance faire food and beverage staff..this is crucial when I need to have an employee work in multiple locations through out the day.

    Cons

    I am unable to send the schedule to just a select employee or employees. Currently I have to send it to the entire staff.

    this is an unscrupulous company .. stay away!

    Reviewed 10 months ago

    terrible! any company that makes it so hard to cancel a subscription has no faith in their product. It is a billing scam!

    Pros

    we never used the software and tried to cancel the initial free subscription. They make it virtually impossible to cancel once you are signed up! after repeated attempts to send email on they're site with nor response we disputed the charges. No one ever responded or called back. any company that makes it so difficult to cancel a subscription is a good reason to stay away. they rely on you singing up for free trial and then never being able to get ahold of any to cancel. why would they not have any way to cancel your subscription online. High pressure sales and borderline criminal! stay away!

    Great Support from CSM

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Jolt has been great so far! Everyone has been super helpful and very accommodating. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] has been doing implementation with me and he is a ROCK STAR. He always makes time for a Zoom when I need it. He has great knowledge and is absolutely a delight to work with.

    Pros

    We LOVE the lists! We love the LOG BOOK! We LOVE the information library. With a few tweaks, scheduling could be outstanding as well.

    Cons

    Scheduling performance. I have provided requests to help make it better.

    Pros

    Easy to build and use. Vey short learning curve. Highly effective. Eliminates the need for paper!

    Cons

    UI not as inviting as some other systems
