Pros
I love how user friendly and easy to use it it. The customer service is great-- shout out to Aimee.
It has made that we can increase our volume tenfold whilst maintaining superb quality. It has reduced some tedious tasks like payroll into easy to use functions.
Our Ops Director loves the ease of forecasting and entering scheduling details and the seamless way it communicates to our staff.
Cons
When an event cancels or postpones, it is difficult to remove it from the system. I've had the software reinstate staff when I went through and deleted them.
There have been periods of wicked bugginess that blocked use on a number of peoples devices.
It took me forever to do. With Nowsta, everything is right in the app and it cuts the time in half.

This app has been game changing for how we communicate with staff.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I like the ease of use as a Coordinator. My time spent scheduling has shrunk majorly, leaving me more time to focus on recruiting, on-boarding and training. The calendar makes it really easy for me to see what my week looks like. The sorting function help me isolate events to more easily see events. Even the color and font choices used in the apps is pleasing to the eye! The support from the Nowsta...

Cons

The timeclock function on the app can be buggy and not record proper times, but I let the Nowsta team know and it's usually fixed right away. It's also an easy fix as a Coordinator, to adjust the times on the desktop.

Great time saving software!

Reviewed a month ago

Overall, Nowsta is a great tool when it comes to our scheduling, event organization, and employee management. We are very thankful for the time it saves us and for the straightforward approach Nowsta has with all users.

Pros

So many elements of Nowsta work great! The easy-to-view calendar of events, the list of workers that populates quickly, the list of scheduled shifts, and all of the easy-to-navigate features really save us time in the Human Resources office!

Cons

Nothing specifically on the administrator level needs improvement. For mobile navigation on behalf of the employees, maybe an easier layout is needed, but I am unfamiliar with mobile navigation.

Tailor-made for the industry

Reviewed 3 months ago

Super easy to use. Intuitive interface.

Pros

This was exactly the solution we were looking for. As a caterer with multiple locations (including new ones), different size/time/types of events, Nowsta allows the flexibility needed while communicating the way our team wants to communicate.

Cons

We love it! Support is always listening for new feature suggestions.
