    Pros
    It's a really complete solution that handles all the requirements for a bussiness like us, the schedulling is very complete and the control fo the employee's timesheets is awesome.
    Customer support was amazing through the whole process. I find they tried their best to keep in touch EVERY week to see how we were doing with the app and what we needed help learning.
    I also enjoy the ease of inputting employees into the system and the ease of placing employees into shifts. Its quite easy to use and its functionality is great throughout all levels of use.
    Cons
    Many glitches when it comes to connecting with RUN or scheduling, but the biggest problem is the inefficiency of the sales team whether the chat or phone. They are simply HORRIBLE.
    As a team, we find ourselves frustrated with Deputy on the daily.
    The product messed up or payroll month after month.

    Excellent & Easy to Use Time Management System

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    Our experience with Deputy right from the very beginning has been nothing but fantastic. If you have any questions, they are answered, if you need help you can get it & it is also very cost effective. We employ about 30 people & work in the Construction Industry. Due to the fact that there are many varied competencies involved in the type of works we do and there is also a number of different locations...

    Pros

    The most helpful feature for us is the "Training" which allows us to know which of our Employees are qualified to undertake different tasks. It is also extremely handy when it comes to paying our wages - no more time sheets !! Once the Employees times have been approved which we try to do on a daily basis, it is just a matter of pushing the button & our payroll in Xero is ready to go. Also the "Scheduling" is wonderful & extremely easy to use.

    Cons

    The Android app doesn't provide as many features as the IPhone app.

    Deputy is seriously like the sheriff that came in and cleaned up our employee scheduling nightmare!

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    We had employees staying clocked on after shifts milking the clock. We didn't notice it until it was time to run payroll. Now this tells me whenever someone stays on more than 5 minutes past their shift. Or clocks in more than 5 minutes early. 6 stores, 3 shifts a day, it really adds up quickly!

    Pros

    Easy to learn. As the person in charge I not only had to learn this product, but I had to train everyone else on this product. And not just train them, but sell them on why it was better than what we were using. Luckily, Deputy is so complete, it was easy. They haven't forgotten a single step.

    Cons

    I wish it synced with my Google calendar. Only thing missing.

    Deputy Helped us to go Paperless

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    Since implementing deputy payroll is more accurate, we save at least 35 hours of manual labour per week and we use 65% less paper.

    Pros

    Ease of use and security for each member of staff. With the addition of the onboarding facility Deputy has become a vital part of our operation.

    Cons

    I wish the scheduling facility was easier to use on a mobile or tablet. As I spend most of my life on the move this would be perfect.

    Stay Away From Deputy!

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Deputy worked fine for us for at least a year. Nothing special, but it integrated with our Gusto payroll and ServiceM8 CRM and that's what we needed. But about 5 weeks ago it lost the ability to calculate over time. If a man works 49 hours in a week, it exports it to Gusto now as 49 straight hours, instead of 40 straight and 9 OT. We have exchanged dozens of emails with Deputy and we only get a canned response back. They say they are looking at it, but we don't believe it. How difficult could it be to compute OT correctly for a time tracking app?!! We don't think there is anyone working there any longer, -just a shell sucking up the monthly fees for as long as possible before folding.

    Pros

    The integration with ServiceM8, which is why we chose Deputy

    Cons

    Customer service is horrendous, and the product is unreliable.

    Easy to use scheduling system

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Easy to use as an employee and looks easy to use from an admin perspective. Never had a problem with my timesheets!

    Pros

    As an employee who has used this for 5+ years this is an easy program to use within a small business. I clock in, clock out and can edit my time if needed. I can offer shifts up and accept or look for more all within the app. I like being notified when new shifts are offered as well via text and can accept them without even opening the app. I wish the calendar in deputy would sync with my apple calendar so I didn’t have to manually enter my deputy shifts into it.

    Cons

    I wish the calendar in deputy would sync with my apple calendar so I didn’t have to manually enter my deputy shifts into it.
