The Royal Botanic Gardens expand employees scheduling with Time & People

This week after a successful pilot across 5 locations that make up the Botanic Gardens in and around Sydney and the Blue Mountains from 2018 with 120 employees The Botanic Gardens have expanded the employee scheduling software to assist with staff rosters by adding 80 specialist teachers to the system. Prior to going digital everything was manual, time sheets, scheduling by spreadsheet and telephone calls, everything was time-consuming and delayed due to the way manual systems work. Moving forward employees will have a lot more freedom to organise schedules with less telephone calls and text messages.

Employees can from their mobile device

  • Sign in and out each day.
  • Pre register for leave
  • Advise unavailability into the future automatically tied to the schedule
  • See their schedules into the future
  • Swap shifts when needed – approved by supervisors.
  • Publish an open shift where the next equally skilled person can take the shift – approved by supervisors.

The Education team do an amazing job of educating thousands of students every year. From the Botanic Gardens website…..Students at all levels will love our practical gardening experiences, outdoor learning activities and the exciting, immersive exhibitions at our new living art gallery, The Calyx. Our team of highly-skilled educators will engage your pupils with the curriculum via hands-on learning.

The Royal Botanic Gardens Society is made up of three key locations, Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney, The Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan, Blue Mountains Botanic Gaden Mount Tomah. There are many other aspects to the Royal Botanic Gardens including the Plant Bank with over 10,000 collections and more than 100 000 000 individual seeds.

Deputy release clouds most advanced reporting module

You have never seen reporting so easy yet so advanced. Deputy upsets the global scheduling scene yet again.

Deputy seem to upset the status quo monthly now recently releasing what I believe is the most advanced cloud reporting ever seen. No wonder Deputy is a company that so many people follow and now with over 40,000 customers globally this must be the most used scheduling software on the planet

One of the most common questions for any cloud software today is how can I get a report of the information I want, until today all companies gave you some standard reports, some let you add and remove a few columns but do not let you export the data you have selected for your report.

Reporting has never been easier and never been so advanced at the same time.

If you are still running spreadsheets for your scheduling it is time to change

How can I get better employee and contractor compliance on sign in

While many customers are loving Deputy we are getting asked more frequently for the ability to manage the compliance of individuals including employees and contractors. If you’re managing employees and contractors compliance manually you may want to consider integrating Deputy with a compliance management system like WhosOnLocation.

Allow employees, visitors and contractors to complete on site compliance induction before coming on site for the first time, renew onsite induction weekly, monthly, annually or at a time that fits your needs.

WhosOnLocation can also receive all of the employee sign in & out information for the purpose of evacuation management bringing together employee, contractor and visitor presence on site.

Improve your evacuation management by integrating Deputy with WhosOnLocation.

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.
