The Story

The Turnip Truck is a Nashville-based, natural foods store that has been serving the community since 2001. The store offers the freshest natural, local and organic foods available in the area.  They make it their mission to source as much food as possible from local farmers.

 

 

We believe in the simple, timeless power of ethically grown, locally harvested food.
The owners at Turnip Truck had been using Excel for employee scheduling, but as the two-location company grew, it became far too time-consuming.

The Challenge

The owners at Turnip Truck had been using Excel for employee scheduling, but as the two-location company grew, it became far too time-consuming to notify employees of newly published schedules or last-minute schedule changes, as everything was done on paper.

The Solution

Transitioning to Deputy has empowered both managers and employees for easier scheduling, time tracking, and communication. New schedules or updates are now sent out to every employee’s smartphone via text and email.

“The Deputy app makes it easy to review the schedule before posting it,” says Tim Lunghino, Assistant Store Director of The Turnip Truck. “When you highlight someone’s name, it highlights all their shifts for that week, and it’s easy to notice if you’ve accidentally scheduled someone for an opening and a closing shift in the same day. It’s a seamless process that definitely saves time for us.”

Another powerful feature of the Deputy app is the Newsfeed that makes it easy to communicate to the entire staff or on an individual basis. There is also an integration between their timesheets and payroll, which saves them a significant amount of time.

Scott Mason, Grocery Team Member of The Turnip Truck, adds, “The Deputy app is great. When I come to work, I pull my phone out and am able to clock in right when I go through the doors. It’s a great tool to have.”

Deputy’s allowed us to communicate more clearly with employees about scheduling, and we’ve also saved a lot of time with payroll.
