Wonderful

Pros

Overall I'm stunned! very easy to use. The price is cheap compared to its counterparts and the overall quality is great.

Cons

It's almost impossible to have a bad experience because their customer service is active and available 24 hours a day.

Deputy Review!

Pros

What we like most about this software is the ease of clocking in and out and tracking our employees locations.

Cons

We like almost everything about Deputy besides how it and ADP integrate. We are still trying to figure out how to connect the two.

Easy to use scheduling system

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.

Deputy for scheduling shifts

Was difficult to set up and get it working. Had to get help but once it is set up it seems to work nicely.

Pros

Easy to see available shifts for the week.

Cons

Can only see available shifts for 1 week. Makes it difficult to plan ahead.

Efficiency that costs

Pros

Swift timesheet proofing and exporting to Xero.

Cons

Currently the cost I like least about this software, their new onboarding tool is no value add. At $15 AUD per onboarded employee, it all adds up throughout the year and for what? It sends the employee an email and they follow a link to complete some info: it seems like a ripoff. They charge this from the moment you hit send, so when a potential employee changes their mind and decides not to complete onboarding or not start work, you get hit with their bill anyway.

The other thing which sucks is how the export takes place. It can only export into 1 account code in Xero, so if like us you wish to export each department into a seperate account code (as opposed to tracking code), the software cannot do that. And I've requested this add-on many times.
