The mobile-friendly workforce management solution was recognized for its modern interface, multiple time-saving features, and more.

Today, leading global workforce management solution, Deputy, announced that it was named Editor’s Choice in PCMag’s Best Employee Scheduling and Shift Planning Software of 2016. The outlet recognized the solution as a top tier cloud-based scheduling platform for small to midsize businesses (SMBs) based on its mobile-first focus, friendly user interface, multiple time-saving features, generous support services, as well as its ability to integrate with other HR software solutions.

“Creating a seamless experience for employee scheduling and shift planning is at the core of what we do at Deputy,” said Jason Walker, president, Americas at Deputy. “We’re honored to have received this recognition and continue to work hard everyday to provide our customers with an even better workforce management solution so they can truly focus on what matters most – their business and employees.”

In addition to traditional features, Deputy also provides SMB and enterprise customers with a variety of unique features including the platform’s “stress profile,” which enables managers to set how many hours an employee can work per shift, day, week, or to regulate hours in between. In return, helping businesses not only stay within budget, but remain in compliance with regulations like the Department of Labor’s new overtime law as well as avoid issues like “clopening” – a practice causing employee unrest across the globe.

“Deputy allows me to streamline my admin processes and manage my team efficiently,” said Krista Schmidt, founder and owner of St. Petersbark natural pet market. “With its low learning curve and excellent employer and employee capabilities, the solution ensures that our main focus remains on our passion for pets and our customers.”

“Unlike other solutions, at Deputy, we place a big priority and focus on the employee experience, just as much as the employer,” said Walker. “For this reason, our solution makes it easy for employees to easily swap shifts, request time off, communicate with their colleagues and managers, and more straight from their mobile device – ultimately alleviating the problems many hourly workers face on a daily basis.”

Currently, Deputy serves more than 20,000 customers across various industries including retail, healthcare, restaurants, hospitality, security, and more in 73 countries. The company also recently announced a 500 percent year-over-year revenue growth in the United States.
