The Story

“I created Good Fortune in my kitchen in 2006. Through faith, persistence, and a little bit of crazy, I’ve grown Good Fortune into a relaxing boutique and spa that has been labeled the ‘American Dream'”, says founder Jennifer Strain, “Seeing my vision come to life is amazing, but inspiring others to follow their dreams is most rewarding!”

Good Fortune was started by one woman with a hope for all women. Now, their mission is to educate and empower people to help themselves and pay it forward.

Good Fortune Soap & Spa used Google Calendar for scheduling and a clipboard for tracking employee time, but as the business grew in employee size, everything became more complicated.

The Challenge

Before Deputy, Good Fortune Soap & Spa used Google Calendar for scheduling and a clipboard for tracking employee time, but as the business grew in employee size, everything became more complicated. Fortunately, they found Deputy, an easy app that synced with their point of sales system, Quickbooks and payroll.

The Solution

“As a mom, I have crazy hours, so it’s really great to be able to log into Deputy and make sure all the shifts are covered and the store is running smoothly,” remarked Jennifer Strain, founder of Good Fortune.

The company’s favorite features are the Deputy Newsfeed, which enables easy communication with employees including those who are not on shift. The scheduling feature also allows employees to see everyone’s schedules so they know who’s working each day. Mobility is a key benefit for Good Fortune as it allows their employees to stay organized, request time off, and check their schedules – all from their smartphones.

Bobbie Fields, manager of Good Fortune, explains, “With Deputy, being able to clock in and out on our phones has really worked well with all our employees, it’s very self-explanatory. Deputy just makes our lives simpler.”

Deputy is more than just a scheduling app, it's growing with our company.
