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.

Pros

Great sales, customer service, training, and tech personnel. Everyone is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, awesome at responding very quickly with easy to understand, concise yet complete answers.
LOVE the reporting feature that tracks attendance tardiness and other metrics for direct input into performance reviews. App is fantastic and employees love it.
The software itself is very user friendly, easy to navigate, and appealing to the eyes. With so many choices out there, you want to make sure you go with something that you will enjoy using.

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.

Cons

We cancelled 6 weeks before the contract was due to start but they charged us for 12 months anyway. We asked to speak to a senior manager.
Nothins at all for the moment. I only had problem with the connection with the wi-fi but i believe it was the workplaces wi-fi.
There's no better functionality on the market but the loading times are horrible.
