"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

It was very easy to implement and it also has a mobile app for easier clocking in/out.

What do you dislike?

Nothing against the product itself, but some employees tend to forget to punch in/out a lot and I receive too many email notifications.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed an easy time clock system that didn't require someone to punch in at a stationary center (such as a fingerprint reader). As our main goal was to make sure our non-exempt office personnel tracked their time, Buddy Punch offered easy-to-use solution to our problems.

"Buddy Punch is great."

What do you like best?

Buddy punch has many great qualities - reports are easy, you can see the URL where employees are clocking in, easy to manage employees who forget to clock in or out, easy for our multiple locations. As the payroll administrator who is located in a completely different state, I can access the time clock, payroll and reports information that I need from online access anywhere.

What do you dislike?

Reporting is very simplistic which is good in some ways, but I wish some of the reports didn't have to be pulled by individual.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Checking the URL from where the employees are clocking in is great. It only took one or two employees trying to cheat the system when they were running late and now the entire staff knows!

What Time Tracking solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

What do you like best?

Buddy Punch is very easy to use and payroll is a snap. It's very functional -- approving and downloading timesheets couldn't be easier.

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything I don't like about Buddy Punch. I have been able to navigate the site without questions, saving me time and money.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely check it out - it's a time saver & easy to use.

Very easy for our employees to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Buddy Punch has been an excellent time clock service for our business!"

What do you like best?

The program is easy to use for both employees and management. It makes our payroll process much simpler.

What do you dislike?

The method for approving changes to employee time cards can become tedious by the end of the month because you have to continuously scroll to the bottom of the time card to approve changes at the end of the pay period, but it's a very small issue! It does not affect the functioning of the software at all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Payroll is simpler and our employees are more accountable for the hours they report.

"Buddy punch has be extremely helpful to organizing my employee payroll. "

What do you like best?

That the employees can make all changes from their own personal devices. Editing or deleting their own times.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that it can not sync with Quickbooks online with more than 1 pay rate. I do understand this has been something buddy punch has tried to address with QBO.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Potentially list more information about buddy punch's ability to sync with other software such as quickbooks. Finding the correct steps on how to make the sync work was difficult and I had to connect support to get answers for why things wouldn't sync. Then found out that the syncing was limited. Buddy punch has the option of more than 1 pay rate but if you need it to sync with quickbooks it is pointless.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have stopped wasting time developing my own in house time sheets via excel and reloading them each week. I have saved a lot of time and stress.

"Great service and software"

What do you like best?

The ease of use of the software is wonderful. Customer service is quick and helpful. Very receptive to suggestions for improvements.

What do you dislike?

on QR login not being able to choose location is a pain. Wish some of the features were more customizable (i.e. PTO titled options)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Customer Service is fantastic. Always emails back within a couple of hours with solution, sometimes within minutes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Streamlining payroll. Will be a cost savings from paper time sheets and hours to process paper time sheets.

"Great service."

What do you like best?

The quick response from the Help Desk team with any problems or questions that may arise.

What do you dislike?

There hasn't been anything to dislike. When we started using BuddyPunch it didn't have the specific pay period that we were currently using as an option. A quick email to the Help Desk and the problem was fixed in less than an hour.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has made processing payroll easier. BuddyPunch separates the regular hours and overtime hours for you, which makes processing payroll a breeze.

"Good Timekeeping Software"

What do you like best?

I like that Buddy Punch is precise and has an easy to use interface. Simply click to punch in and click to punch out. No fancy frills or multiple steps, and it calculates all of the time for you!

What do you dislike?

I don't like that it will time-out fairly quickly, and sign you out. Not sure if this can be changed at the Admin level, but it can sometimes be a bother.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our old timekeeping software was sunset, and we needed a new and easy solution. Buddy Punch was that easy solution.

"Super Easy to use"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, staff likes it, very efficient. Love the fact I get a quick report and can process payroll even faster.

What do you dislike?

The Settings tab is a little clunky to me, Everything I need is there, but it takes a while to surf through all of the different sections to find what I am looking for. It could be more intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try the Free trial, I mean why not!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used Excel Spreadsheets before, they were inefficient, often wrong, and easy to mess-up the formatting. With Buddy Punch I have fixed all that. Now I am just retraining the staff to actually punch in and out.

"Clock in and clock out with precision"

What do you like best?

The ability to clock in and clock out on the road and as you go. Very easy to use as an end user and as a manager of employees that punch in and out.

What do you dislike?

If you forgot and punched out at the wrong time, then it requires manager approval to change it and that could delay things.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to track temp workers' hours.

"I love that Buddy Punch is simple for my employees and has all the features i need as an owner"

What do you like best?

Completely simplified payroll for my hourly employees. I went from chasing down manual time sheets to printing a 1 page re-cap for the pay period. I also love the gps function to verify their location when punching in and out.

What do you dislike?

The GPS seems to be much more accurate for some cell carriers than others.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped me track hours and location of an off site employee and streamlined the whole payroll process.

"Easy to Use, great support"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, always available, great design and user interface. Handles vacation and automates everything.

What do you dislike?

They have a QRC option, which lets you punch in using a scanned QR code. I don't use that but instead just have my employees punch in and out on a desktop computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Much more cost effective than the competition - others are pay per user, here they don't charge per user.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Makes tracking time easier and more accurate. Saves a lot of time and errors.

"Buddy Punch Review"

What do you like best?

Easy to check in on timesheets, easy to export and send to my bookkeeper. I really like being able to see what device employees log in with so I know they are not checking in on the road or at home.

What do you dislike?

A little tricky to navigate at first, but came fairly quickly once I got going with it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy time sheet transfer to do payroll.
