Deputy Grows iOS User Base by 45 Percent in Nine Months

Leading global workforce management solution is reinventing small businesses and enterprises with mobile-first solutions

Deputy, a leading global workforce management solution, today announced it has grown its iOS user base by 45 percent in just nine months, highlighting the company’s commitment to reinventing workforce management for small businesses and enterprises with mobile-first solutions. Much of this growth can be attributed to the enhanced Deputy app that includes new iOS optimized features and new user experience for iPad and iPhone. Deputy has also been successful in leveraging its standing as an Apple mobility partner to reach even more businesses with its innovative solution.

“Today’s news reveals how Deputy is advancing the workforce management process through a mobile-first solution that enables companies to manage employees from anywhere at anytime,” said Jason Walker, president of The Americas, Deputy. “Today, 95 percent of our customers use iPad and iPhone and we’ve gone all in on building the best apps to support the latest features, all the while leveraging our relationship with Apple as a mobility partner to get our solutions in front of more businesses.”

Deputy + iOS = A Perfect Mobile Workforce Management Match
Launched in 2008, Deputy is an all-in-one workforce management solution for companies looking to improve employee scheduling, time and attendance, team communication and performance management. By leveraging the power of iOS, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, Deputy creates intuitive workforce management solutions that allow business owners to manage and communicate with employees from any location via iPad, iPhone or Apple Watch.

With the Deputy app for iOS, businesses can:

  •     Seamlessly create and update employee schedules based on individual availability
  •     Easily share schedules via email, SMS or push notifications to an iPhone, iPad or other smartphone
  •     Instantly offer and replace open shifts or allow employees to swap shifts base on their availability
  •     Communicate, monitor and assign tasks to individual employees or a company’s entire employee base
  •     Create and approve timesheets in real time and instantly export finalized timesheets into a company’s existing payroll software

The Ultimate Digital Business Management Platform
Because Deputy integrates with other business management tools that are also Apple mobility partners, such as Xero, Vend and Kounta, Deputy customers have direct access to a growing ecosystem of other digital solutions to run their businesses. Customers can pick and choose solutions and apps based on their needs and priorities, creating the ultimate mobile business management platform to operate entire workflows seamlessly in the cloud.

For example, by integrating Deputy with Xero, timesheets that are created and approved by small business owners via Deputy are automatically updated in Xero payroll, creating instant visibility into payroll processing.

“This kind of automation is critical for business owners looking to improve workflow productivity and payroll accuracy,” said Russ Fujioka, Xero’s U.S. president. “As we work with unique partners like Deputy, we’re able to provide small business owners a complete, real time view of their company’s financial position.”

Derek Belnap, owner of 3 Cups Cafe ́ in Utah, uses Deputy to manage his entire staff from his iPhone. By integrating Deputy with Xero, Derek can also obtain a more accurate view of his cafe’s financial performance in real time, based on sales and payroll, as well as create employee schedules based on internal forecasts of peak business times, all via his iPad or iPhone.

“Using Deputy and Xero together has streamlined processes that are often tedious and dreaded, from approving employee timesheets to providing accurate end-of-the-month reporting,” said Belnap. “The combination of the two platforms is the closest thing you’ll have to an office manager without the additional salary of one. It’s truly a lifesaver.”
