Simplified rostering and staff management.

Powerful cloud-based rostering application

2014-11-19

As part of a small subsidiary that is rapidly growing, we were encountering rostering problems that necessitated greater functionality than what our Excel templates could offer, but did not call for the complexity of traditional big-company rostering solutions. Deputy offered us an intuitive cloud-based alternative that seems to grow as we do. We are still discovering new and powerful ways to use Deputy every day !

Pros

- Different platforms available - Real-time notifications of shift changes - Ability to sychronize Deputy with calendar programs - Greater employee management (birthdays, emails, etc

Cons

- No built-in monthly view for rostering purposes - No option to roster schedules by employee and not work area (French work contracts guarantee a minimum hours/week for each employee) - Limited timesheet reports in Excel format

Response from Deputy.com


Glad you are enjoying Deputy!

We now have monthly view and schedule by employee built into Deputy! Check it out!

As a new payroll/rostering system DEPUTY has, thus far, been a very user-friendly system to use

2018-06-28

Quick & Easy to use; Accurate time management tool and data system.

Pros

Easy Access, user friendly and will be a valuable tool once we go 100% live.

Cons

Haven't come across too many difficulties and, as we are still in the 'infancy' stage of implementation cannot expand further than that.

2018-04-17

Pros

App driven for seamless integration with employee mobile devices, schedule at the ready and employees can set alerts, push to calendar, notifications, etc. to their liking.

Cons

At present, I have not come across much I did not like, how ever, when exporting timesheet the calendar function does not always default to the current pay period.

Great experience managing 101 part-time employees using Deputy

2018-04-18

Pros

Intuitive & Easy to Use Especiallly like the NewsFeed/Communication Feature Excellent Customer Support Easy Interface to Payroll System (Gusto)

Cons

Just a tad too cumbersome to get all the events set up and even still - it's more time tracking and reporting where we need a tool that is specifically geared toward marketing events management end-to-end that would contain some element/module for time tracking.

Excellent, you get more than you pay for.

Pros

Deputy doesn't stop with staff scheduling though, it has all the features of a team management app -- it lets you assign tasks and keep track on their progress.

Cons

The Android app could be made a bit more featured and easier to use.

Staff management made super easy

2016-07-27

Deputy is a very easy to use software used to track data, time sheets, schedules and communicate with each other.

Pros

Instead of spending hours sorting through time sheets and data, deputy has all that for me in a single click!

Cons

I work a lot through my phone and I would be great if I didn't need to hop on my laptop to access everything I need on deputy.

team sift scheduling and more.

2019-02-12

this app kept me from doing manual invoicing, allowed me to trade shifts with other teammates quickly and without having to harass the management to make changes manually on their end.

Pros

besides the really nice interface, the tool integrate to google calendar, send push notifications and other features.

Cons

Not really an issue, but by being so complete, it might require a considerable learning curve, but it's worth the time spent.

Accessible and Easy Use

2019-03-28

I can be on the go and document what I am doing and show that I am on location if needed.

Pros

The design is easy to use with the iphone app, and I like that the categories can be designed to fit your business tasks for streamlined documentation of how much time is spent doing a certain task.

Cons

Sometimes the app will glitch when putting in an end time and after changing the end time from the current time it will default several times back to the current time instead of the end time you want.
