Now Integrated with ACTAtek employee biometric time clocks

As cloud software has taken off over the past decade for time and attendance and scheduling questions still arise on hardware, do you need hardware? If an employee has a phone app that only works on the employee phone why would you consider biometric fingerprint readers for employees to sign in and out?

Put simply it is a choice, along with going biometric comes an additional cost, if you have 20 locations with 600 employees you can either have employees sign in and out with their own mobile phone (no cost to you) on an iPad set up in kiosk mode (additional cost) or a biometric fingerprint reader for employee time and attendance.

Deputy adds leave balances for employees to see when booking leave – WOW!!

Every once in a while comes a feature every customer asks for but is not easy for the development team to provide, allowing an employee to easily see how many hours leave are available when requesting some time off is gold. This was worth the wait. Thanks a million to the developers, customer are going to love this feature.

Not only does Deputy show the leave balance to the employee they also show the balance per leave type. AND any future approved leave, so everyone is completely in the know. This will save employees, managers, and employers from jumping back and forth between Deputy and their payroll product – what a time saver! At present this data syncs seamlessly with Xero, MYOB and Bamboo HR.

Deputy introduce paid breaks – making compliance even easier

Last month Deputy released a new feature – Paid Breaks.

 

What does this mean?

You can now ask employees to sign out and in for breaks giving you an electronic easy to understand report showing the breaks taken while the employee continues to get paid as required. Previously you could not do this as the employee if they signed into a break would not get paid.

What should you do?

Deputy says…Relieve your employees from all duties during their breaks – (Pay close attention to this one). Ensure your staff are not pressured to work during their allocated break times. IF they’re working at any capacity during their break, you’ll be liable to pay them in addition to their entitled wage.

Setting up paid breaks is easy…register to start a 30 day trial and book in training to get your employees signing in and out electronically.

It is now even easier to import your data in XERO….

3 more reasons to have Deputy Scheduling with Xero

Deputy continue to move forward faster than any other scheduling company on the globe. Deputy are moving so fast the gap between Deputy and other products in the market is widening, no competitor is keeping pace.

What about these Xero integration gems….

1. Payslip export

Along with exporting to Xero timesheets, you can now export to Xero Pay Slips directly! This means you can skip the timesheet approval process in Xero and go straight to payroll. It’s perfect for when there are elements of pay that aren’t just “Hours”. Eg. distance travelled, allowances, tips etc. If you want to track wages across tracking categories, we recommend using Timesheet export.

 

2. Auto update

Exactly one year ago Deputy launched Xeroshare. This site allows Xero customers (even those not using Deputy) to utilise industry rates in their Xero account. Deputy can read the rates directly in Xero which allowed configuring overtime and allowances using our bracket notation. There was just one little annoyance, you had to keep syncing the employees in Deputy. Today we’ve introduced a minor update, now you don’t have come to Deputy to update/sync the rates again. Simply setup “Updated Employee” -> “Sync Pay Rates” integration under Location Settings -> Add-Ons -> Xero.

 

drum roll……..and now for the big one….

3. Xero payroll for the UK

After working closely with the Xero Payroll team Deputy are proud to be the first add-on partner to release an integration for Xero Payroll UK. This will enable Deputy customers to streamline business processes and further reduce their administrative burden. Deputy already enriched the payroll process for thousands of Aussie and US businesses. Now Deputy are delighted to do the same for our customers in the UK.

Deputy partners in the UK are notably excited about what this means for their clients, already Deputy are hearing statements such as “This integration helps us to improve the efficiency of businesses across the UK, it’s a real game-changer for business operations today.”

 

The Deputy team are outstanding, have insight beyond the next 20 scheduling companies combined globally. I remember sharing with a partner more than 10 years ago that cloud was the way to go but they insisted on staying with traditional time and attendance. The world has changed, the game has changed and employee scheduling has changed forever thanks to Deputy.

Deputy is now in more than 70 countries around the world.
