Run teams on the go

Easily manage shift changes & communication

Help your teams handle anything. If you need more nurses on hand, have important updates you can’t afford staff to miss, or if someone can’t make their shift, Deputy helps you adapt and stay efficient under pressure.

  • Find last-minute replacements for empty shifts with one tap in the Deputy app

  • Offer available shifts in bulk to suitable employees on a first-come, first-served basis

  • Allow staff to swap shifts with qualified replacements directly in the app — reducing back and forth

  • Share important messages, updates, and videos on Deputy News feed and receive an alert when they've been reviewed

  • Automatically screen staff for worrying symptoms before they start work — and if they come down with a virus, instantly trace all the colleagues they’ve had contact with

  • With a few clicks, approve timesheets and seamlessly export them to your payroll software

  • View real-time employee attendance — including who is currently on shift, running late, or on break
