"Management can assess the real-time costs of shifts, approve shifts and make journal entries against each job."

Rodney Jackson, Founder and Director, DallasAir

Fast, efficient scheduling

Schedule teams for profitability and social distancing

Build schedules that meet demand, reduce health risks, and help your teams work effectively — with confidence in their safety.

  • Plan shifts to match demand with clear forecasts of your labor requirements

  • Schedule available staff with simple drag and drop tools — and send out shift details instantly

  • Avoid overcrowding by staggering employee arrival and finish times, and ensure a safe amount of staff are scheduled across different roles or locations

  • Reduce the risk of illness spreading by splitting your staff into independent squads — use templates to easily rotate squads between different days or weeks

  • Stay on budget with real-time visibility over wage costs and labor percentages

Manage teams remotely with real time attendance visibility with Deputy

“Reduced clock in/out mistakes by 50%.”

Live reporting on attendance, wellness, and performance

Manage teams remotely with real-time visibility across locations

Receive an alert if staff show worrying symptoms, see who’s arrived on site and who’s running late, and track job progress.

  • See who’s currently on shift, on break, or late with real-time attendance updates

  • Protect your business with automated pre-shift health checks, which prevent staff from starting their shift if they pose a health risk to their team or customers

  • If an employee comes down with a virus, instantly trace all the coworkers they’ve had contact with, notify them directly, and adjust schedules as needed

  • See when important tasks and hygiene procedures have been completed

Shift changes and communication

Communicate changes to the schedule and important safety updates

Handle last-minute changes to the schedule and make sure staff are across the latest workplace updates.

  • Adjust your team’s schedule from web or mobile and publish updates instantly

  • If staff can’t work their shift, find a replacement with one tap in the Deputy app — or simply allow staff to swap with suitable team members

  • Share new workplace policies or hygiene procedures and receive an update when they’re reviewed

  • Communicate with your whole team from a central noticeboard or reach out to staff individually, keep employee details in one place, and stay organized under pressure

Touchless time clock

Record work hours hygienically and screen staff for worrying symptoms

  • Staff can record their exact time on shift via our touch-free time clock — reducing surface contact

  • Managers can verify, review, and export digital timesheets to payroll in minutes

  • Protect your business with automated pre-shift health checks, which prevent staff from clocking in if they’re a health risk to their colleagues or your customers

  • Use pre-shift questions to check in on employee morale — are they feeling safe and confident at work? Do they have everything they need to do their job effectively?

  • When staff begin or end their shift, remind them of important tasks or hygiene protocols they need to complete
