Great Scheduling Tool

Verified Reviewer  14th of April

Noora Cox, Community Coordinator at The Green Sage
We use Nimble for scheduling across our three restaurants in Asheville, NC. The tool has helped us a great deal in allowing each of our three General Managers to schedule shared employees without double-scheduling any one employee. The app has had a few glitches where it takes awhile to load but for the most part works quite well. The time clock feature has also been beneficial in allowing us to virtually approve/edit time stamps for our employees. And the customer service is the best part! There is almost always someone available to chat with online and they're speedy and efficient in their responses. We've tried other scheduling softwares and Nimble has been the best bang for our buck so far!

Pros: It has great preventive features when scheduling that alert users if you try to double schedule an employee across multiple locations or if it is does not fit within the employee's availability. The time clock feature allows users to virtually approve/edit time stamps for employees with just a few clicks. The customer service is the best part! There is almost always someone available to chat with online and they're speedy and efficient in their responses.

Cons: The app has had a few glitches where it takes awhile to load but for the most part works quite well.

Overall, Nimbleschedule has been great

Verified Reviewer  18th of January

RACHEL REID, EMT-Basic, Assistant EMS Director at Alanson-Littlefield Fire Department
For a while now, the ability to track coverage for our EMS staff was a bit scattered. We never had problems with the actual scheduling -- we have a set schedule that pretty much never changes -- however it was becoming increasingly difficult to track when one person was covering for someone else's shift. It became a game of texting, guessing and questioning who was covering for whom." It was getting confusing and needed some serious help. Being a small town volunteer organization, we don't have a lot of money to spend. So finding an inexpensive solution that was also very easy for some not-so-tech-savvy people to use was key. Nimbleschedule fits the bill perfectly. I am very surprised at how many of my members actually use it. Though I do have a few items that I wish were different, overall Nimbleschedule has been a wonderful tool for our service.

Pros: *Fairly easy to use - One you get a hang for what certain features do, it is very easy to use and a schedule can be set up pretty quickly. I can do a year's worth of scheduling for a dozen people in about a half an hour. *The app and web consoles are both very easy to interpret - Adding people to the schedule means I have to pay for them to use the app, whether they use it or not. The app and website are so easy for them to use, I am surprised how many of them say they actually use it regularly. *Lots of customization - I love all of the information it allows me to enter about my staff. The ability to turn certain notifications on and off for each individual is great too. It is completely customizable, which is great. *Announcements/SMS texts - Group texts are great, but can get messy when everyone starts replying. The announcements feature has been great. I use it to let people know about large span schedule changes, training opportunities and general housekeeping notes. The extra $1 per person per year is completely worth it for everyone to get a text when I post a schedule change or announcement.

Cons: *Inability to turn certain features off - Since our service relies on coverage, we cannot just request time off. The shift needs to be traded. I wish I could turn off the "request time off" feature so that it doesn't get used at all. *Positions do not automatically update - I have several members licensed at an MFR level. Last year I had 1, and this year will have more who's license will increase to an EMT-Basic level. When I change their position in their profile, it does not automatically update on the schedule. I may be doing something wrong, but the only thing I have found I can do to get them to show at their new level is to delete their schedule and re-enter it. *Inability to create overnight/multi-day shifts - This is probably my biggest drawback about Nimbleschedule. Admittedly we have some pretty weird schedules. Most of my shifts are overnight and all-weekend shifts. The weekend shifts span 60 hours, and overnights are from 6 PM to 6 AM. As it stands now, in order for a shift to accurately span multiple days on the schedule, multiple shifts need to be created. It would be very helpful to be able to enter dates as well as times for shift start and end times, so that I am not creating 12 different shifts (4 different shifts (Fri night, Sat, Sun and Mon morning) for 3 people) for every weekend.

Excellent!

Verified Reviewer  9th of October, 2015

Egil Hallhagen, Servie Desk Manager på Zetup AB
Nimble has improved our scheduling for both for managers and employees. We are new at Nimble, but I'm convinced that we will stay completely satisfied. I've evaluated many similar similar solutions lately, Nimble Schedule simply does it best! Nimbles support team could only be described with one word: awesome!! Whenever and whatever I need support with, I get it almost directly via their support chat.

Pros: - Simple interface - Very affordable - Time saving - Very good support - Etc...

Cons: - No custom branding - 24 hour time format is not available in the mobile apps - Some settings can't be executed for all users at the same time - No full screen view that always shows the current weeks schedule Mostly small details really...

Saves us a ton of time

Verified Reviewer  21st of October, 2014

A verified reviewer
Despite having grown to just over 100 employees at 4 locations since we started the company 3 years ago, we still used simple spreadsheets for scheduling our hourly workers, which is 80% of our staff. Brutal. When we switched to Nimble early in 2014, it immediately cut related HR hours by at least 10 hours/month because it works so well with our other systems (payroll, books, etc.). And we get to talk to real, live people. They loaded our data for us at the beginning and are always around for support/questions. Amazing software for the price!

Pros: Great integration with our HR system (Bamboo). Notifications through the app -- weekly schedule in advance, automatic employee reminders 1 hour before their shift, etc. -- have been the big driver in our 62% decrease in missed shifts this year.

Cons: Integrates only with Quickbooks online, not my desktop version. Download of data for upload into QB is smooth so it's not a huge deal, but a full integration would be nice.

Very reliable and easy-to-use app

Best Scheduling App

Verified Reviewer  20th of October, 2014

A verified reviewer
I've been using a couple of scheduling solutions for my company in last few years and found that NimbleSchedule is the tool I've been looking for. It is simple to use, very reliable (this is important to me and my employees), they have 24/7 customer support and the features we need. We even suggested one new feature which was implemented in matter of weeks. Great app that saved a lot of our time.

Pros: Great support, easy to use, reliable.

Cheap and Inexpensive Online Scheduling Solution

19th of January, 2012

Rakesh Sharma
NimbleSchedule is a web-based scheduling solution that promises to take the pain out of scheduling. I thought the multiple location feature is an especially thoughtful addition to the interface. The feature enables you to configure shifts across multiple locations. That is where the value of the system goes beyond traditional Excel sheet systems that are good for simple scheduling tasks but fail during complexity. Once details are configured, the system alerts users with text messages or emails. Each employee can enter his or her personal details. In addition, they can swap shifts based on their availability information configured in the system.

Pros: Excellent value for money to simplify your life

Cons: Could do with better response time for some features
