Deputy starts 2017 with all guns blazing – There is no other scheduling software that compares….

Wow what a start  to 2017, Deputy have come out with all guns blazing……

I read with interest this week that deputy have secured a USD 25 million investment to take the Deputy software solution into the stratosphere. There is no doubt there is no other product on the planet that even comes close. You can trial products for months or you can just start with Deputy right now…Start a 30 day trial

From an initial start just over eight years ago deputy has become the number one employee scheduling software.

just look at these stats eight years on….

  • 80 employees
  • Offices in 4 countries
  • Over 28,000 customers
  • Customers in 70 countries (on every continent)
  • 450,000 users
  • Over 60,000,000 shifts handled

while most of the competitors have less than 20 staff  and may have added one or two staff in the past eight years.  The growth of Deputy as a company is only matched by the growth of the product which now boasts so many time-saving tools you simply cannot look at any other software because nothing compares.

What is new in 2017?

Reports are now saved during your session so if you need to go back and review a report you ran earlier you can simply click on  the link saved from the original time you ran the report.  Deputy just keep taking away clicks and seconds, every time they make a change and take away a click  they are saving  the users seconds, seconds that add up to minutes and over time hours. It is hard to imagine how you would schedule your staff without Deputy

Template Rosters – Everyone needs this

WE have all been waiting for templates and Deputy has delivered, now you can build that template for the public holiday, xmas period etc and save yourself a mountain of time every time.

Deputy’s promise to you has always been to act as your trusted second-in-charge, and to give you back time to do the things you really love* and you’re really good at. With our latest release, we’re absolutely delighted to hand you back a ton of your valuable time.

You can now save and load schedule templates. This means you can build a schedule for a day or a week, (or just go to an existing schedule), and save it as a template for future use.

This is similar functionality to Copy Shifts, however a saved template is always easily accessible – you don’t have to go back and forth to find a schedule you want to copy. You can quickly pull up the template for Summer Week, Busy Week, Easter Sunday, whatever. With one click, you can load it to a blank day/week (actually, it doesn’t even have to be blank – the template shifts will be simply added to any existing shifts), tweak and trim if you like, and publish.

Once you have created a schedule, everyone in your team who can schedule at the location(s) it covers can access and load that schedule. You can create master templates, and ask your Location Managers and Supervisors to use them.

How late do your employees run every day?

Deputy has discovered with the use of Big Data that at least 30% of workers across Australia’s major cities run late for work every day. That is almost 1 in 3 workers running late every day.

What does this cost your business?

The only way Deputy could gather this data was by creating an electronic scheduling program that made for easy management of rosters where employees can sign in and out each shift electronically. We all know what happens when an employee is running late on time sheets and turns up at 8.10 when they are due to start at 8.00. The employee unless challenged will always write 8:00 as the starting time even through they are running late.

Going electronic with Deputy removes all of these issues where the employee can only sign in and out at the time they arrive and leave. Deputy can also take the GPS position of the employee if they sign in from their own phone.

Deputy had the opportunity to use what many today call Big Data. More than 400,000 employee shifts were used to create the data, giving statisticians more than enough information to confirm 30% to be an average nationally.

Industries worst impacted by lateness included Construction, Hospitality and Healthcare, while retail fared better than all three. Maybe retail employees are more afraid of losing their jobs?

The average late start time ranged from 8 minutes and 4 seconds to 9 minutes and 24 seconds. I wonder how the 60% of employees that always arrive on time feel about 40% of their workmates turning up late?

If employee lateness is an issue in your business click through to start a 30 day trial of Deputy now and see how you can transform your business.
