"Efficient Planning "

What do you like best?

The layout is clean and neat which makes looking at a grid a little easier on the eyes. We use it to estimate time schedules for the week in order to keep overtime at a minimum. I also like the week view.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Planday doesn’t load on our mobile devices so we log in to the site on our computer.

It would be nice to have a separate screen to view unavailable times (staff-entered days requested off). We make our schedules weeks in advance and if the staff enters their days off in Planday, we won’t know until trying to schedule them for shifts. I want the entire team to know when others have requested off so we won’t be short-staffed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If it works for your schedule, save time by saving schedule templates and reuse them week after week. It’s better to tweak than create.

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

We used to write the schedule on a paper and add up hours on our fingers so Planday has given us the gift of time and efficiency. It’s been beneficial for the staff to view the most up-to-date schedule on the go. No more excuses!

"Great Success"

What do you like best?

Tracking Time & Attendance - Keeps a tight track on casual hours from a management perspective but also the employees love the app by giving them clear shift times and the option to make themselves unavailable and swap shifts.

Cutting Admin Time - easy to put together rotas and produce reports for payroll processing at month end.

Payroll visibility - easy to track daily, weekly and monthly payroll spend.

What do you dislike?

Even though it is relatively simple to learn how it works it does require some focus and backing from the management team.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend time on implementation and training.

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

Improved Employee satisfaction.

Admin time efficiency.

Increased accuracy in collating hours worked.

What Workforce Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"A Breath of Fresh Air"

What do you like best?

It actually does what you are promised it will do. This system has saved lots of man-hours by removing unnecessary tasks and improving access to schedules, etc. It has empowered my employees to take responsibility and best of all we've got an amazing communication tool that enables us to collate evidence and electronic signatures too.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't anything that springs to mind. Issues I've raised have been dealt with quickly and I'm told my ideas are in the pipeline.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it, you won't be disappointed. This is an easy to use system that Managers and Employees love, it provides a transparent solution to budgeting, availability, holidays, etc. The communication element is great and the fact you can collect electronic signatures and gather evidence.

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

Communication, Budget Control, Transparency of all sites from any location. The ability to communicate and gather signed evidence is excellent and this has saved time, effort and paper.

"Happy! "

What do you like best?

I myself, a manager of a company and someone who does all the staffing really enjoys how easy planday is to use, staff, add new employees and edit shifts. It’s very customizable and easy to use

What do you dislike?

I don’t necessarily like how you can’t search employees by name or type their name in when putting them on a shift

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check it often, if you really implement it as a necessary action to your employees it can be utilized very successfully

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

I’ve definitely had the benefit of keeping track when my employees show up to an event and leave. Sometimes the GPS location is unavailable. That might be something to work on

"Large sports teams best friend!"

What do you like best?

If you are a sports team or club that have caches hired by the hour this is the best software ever! We have 150 coaches running this software and everything is easier! From scheduling all the way to payout.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike, overall this is solid. We could use some more memory to build larger schedules.

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

We save money by keeping much better control over our employees schedule. By mangeging the schedule we save time for each semester.Together with our banks software we make payments really easy.

"Simple scheduling app"

What do you like best?

Before we started to use Planday, we explored a handful of scheduling websites and apps. Planday was by far the most straightforward and simple one.

What do you dislike?

I wish I could delete a shift right from the dashboard rather than having to open the shift to delete it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go through the sales call and learn about the different features. I learned more about what Planday offered by doing the setup call than I would have on my own.

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

We used to spend house creating scheduling docs in Excel. Being able to schedule online and have all our employees instantly have the new version of the schedule has been incredibly important to our business this year.

"Not too Shabby"

What do you like best?

The overall look and the flexibility was very important for our needs. Many of the products available was very ridged approach which would be fine for many business out there. Our needs are unique and required a system that can bend closer to our needs.

What do you dislike?

There are some inconsistencies regarding their interface between the Admin and User GUI. Depending on which mode of viewing opening shifts will require flipping between windows instead of a single click function. It can be cumbersome and is often the cause of accidental shift selections.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Rethink how people can view and select their shifts on-line and mobile to be more consistent and with less steps.

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

The challenge was having an up-to-date, central point of reference where Staff, Relief or Volunteers can sign-up for available shifts based on their skills. Using this system allow us to offer on-line sign-ups instead of calling or physically writing their names onto a clipboard. Many of our members enjoys the conveniences of using the mobile apps.

"Great bit of tech! "

Its very detailed, make sure you allocated time to set it all up properly. Once setup, its very easy to use

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

Payroll is vastly improved, staff always know when they are working so no more "oh, i didn't know i was in'. Time taken to write and cost rotas is now minutes as opposed to hours

"Great Software Solution for Scheduling Hourly Workers!!!"

What do you like best?

With Planday, you will enjoy a plethora of tools in a simple, easy to manage, web-based software that you, your employees and managers can access anytime. It offers most of the capabilities and tools any business owner would expect to find when using the best and free staff scheduling software, and if you are a paying user, as I am, you will enjoy reliable, prompt customer support, including phone calls.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I have to train the new employees for a few minutes before they get going, not a big deal.

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

Over the years, I have tried many different types of scheduling tools. I've used excel, pen and paper, ADP, etc and none of them seemed to work as well as Planday.

In terms of clocking-in or punching in, my employees use their smart phones, they have to be at work, and there have never been issues with this. I don't have to go back in and correct times or change passwords anymore.

Training my newest employees is easy now too. The app is clean. It has a user-friendly dashboard which helps you in navigation, so once it's on your phone your basically using it like you've been on it for years within the first few days.

Lastly, my team is growing. I manage many different types of people at my Vineyard. I can separate out my workers by locations and the positions they work. From there, I can easily create schedules and manage reports.

"Planday"

What do you like best?

The user interface is intuitive and I really like the swap-shift features.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing to complain about really. It stands up well against the other main players in the market.

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

Swap-shift functionality means that employees can easily swap shifts with other staff, (assuming they have the same skill-set), automatically using the mobile app. This reduces the management burden of the duty manager and gives staff more flexibility, increasing engagement.

3) Sending messages to specific groups or individuals.

The only problem is if an employee does not have a smartphone or use their computer very often.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a trial period - I guarantee you will adjust to it and it will be very efficient to your staffing needs.

"Very Displeased "

What do you like best?

User Interface is satisfactory. But it still needs a lot of improvements.

What do you dislike?

Unfair and nontransparent pay term. I do not trust them anymore. They will try to put you on a commitment without your confirmation. GPS Tracking was never working well, and also it calculates the total hours in minutes, its supposed to be in hours.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend your time on a google spreadsheet rather than dealing with Planday. The quality is average, and do not expect any magic from Planday.

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

I was using it for Employee Scheduling.
