Bizimply is a cloud-based employee scheduling software designed for small and midsize retail and hospitality business including hotels, restaurants, bar and cafes. Along with scheduling, it also handles employee attendance, shifts, timecards, payroll and business reporting activities.
Bizimply's scheduling feature allows managers to create job schedules for teams and individuals and share shift details with employees in advance. The Timestation feature allows managers to capture employees’ clock in and out time and calculate their actual working hours. To prevent employees from 'buddy punching' the system takes a photo each time a staff member clocks in.
Bizimply stores entire data in a single consolidated repository and helps businesses to generate detailed HR reports. The software can also be used to track employee's time-off requests, vacation, sick leaves and other requests.
Bizimply is available on a pay-as-you-go pricing model in which businesses pay a monthly subscription for a fixed number of users. The package also includes dedicated mobile apps for both manager and employees to perform their set of activities from their mobile devices.

The scheduling software has been so helpful in projecting the labor costs we were going to occur. The ease of setting it up and the daily use has made my managers' lives so much simpler than working with an Excel spreadsheet. The team at Bizimply has been nothing but helpful! They are very knowledgable and just downright fun to work with.
I can't think of anything I don't like about the product. There's definitely nothing I can say bad about Bizimply.
Like anything, look around. Don't just settle on the first one that looks good. If I had done that, I wouldn't have found Bizimply, and I definitely wouldn't be as happy as I am now. Put in the work, and you'll find what you're looking for.

Implemented Bizimply in Dec 2014 and now I could not live without it. From the start it was extremely easy to use and set up and just like any software you get out what you put in. I delegated the scheduling to middle management and concentrated on the employee database, monitoring attendance and productivity and building up a history of daily shifts by logging details once a week. I also used teh employee database to record data from staff revies held every 3/6 months. This historical data which shows sales, hours used and labour costs is now my "Productivity Baramoter" I am able to forecast the revenue and required labour and incentivise my staff to deliver on the optimum Sales Per Labour Hour rate (I now know it) that will deliver the maximum return in the most sustainable way. In our industry we cannot afford to sprint from Monday to Sunday, it's a marathon from January to December!
Ease of use, I can open multiple windows at the same time, great support, nice GUI, good pricing and easy to find invoices, they understand our industry, continuously improves functionality.
Lack of colour or shift type differentiation
Managers out there are spending hours on rostering/scheduling. In many ways they protect this time as rostering requires an almost intimate knowledge of each staff members personal life. Managers protect this "time and skill" yet with Bizimply they can empower staff to be scheduled by lower level managers/staff while they monitor the profitability of the shifts by recording the salient aspects of those shifts. Bizimply helps us to record Sales, Hours, Costs, Weather, SPLH and all other details which will help us better plan for the same week next year or same event the next time. When I discovered the optimum SPLH (Sales Per Labour Hour) for our business based on 18 months empirical evidence I knew I had the magic number. The number that maximizes productivity while ensuring that workers are fresh and able to continue delivering that productivity all year. That's sustainable profitability from January to December. So what's the Magic Number? it's different for every business - but after 12 months of applying your management to monitoring and not scheduling you will know it for ever.

I was asked to source a way of keeping track of the guys on site and found this app, we had a demo, like what we saw and they then took all our information and did a tailored demo for us which sold us the product.
Easy to use once you get used to it and we can tailor it a little to meet our requirements and a reasonable price to get it on every site on the ipads.
It doesn't do things as 'globally' as we would like but having said that they are looking into tweaking it for us.
Ger from Compu b

Compu B has eight stores across two countries and Bizimply has been genuinely transformational in how we manage these stores. It has delivered more efficient rostering, informative staff communication, trend analysis and it has had a real impact on our bottom line.
Declan from Goldenpages
5 minutes to install, no training, plug and play solution.
Our old PC system often had staff waiting for warm up, connections etc and was frustrating to them especially on the rush out time.
This solution was tested for a week and the HR department bought in because of the ease of use and speed of roll out.
Joe from Ronald McDonald House
At the Ronald McDonald House we use Bizimply to schedule and manage our 40+ volunteers. The system is very easy to use and also allows us to capture the amount of volunteers hours by day and department which we are required to log weekly.
We no longer have clip boards being filled out and then transferring over to excel sheets etc. The system has been embraced by all and they find it so easy to use. it is also great for uploading training and legal documents.
Declan from Caffreys Irish Bar
We at Caffrey's have found Bizimply very easy to use, and it has greatly improved the communication between staff and also improved the punctuality of the staff all in all Bizimply is a very useful and helpful tool and has helped us a lot
Peter from Blend & Batch
We've been using this staff scheduling software/app for approx 2 months. It's fantastic. So easy to use and understand, no glitches or restrictions, they have thought of everything. I couldn't recommend it enough. Plus their customer service is flawless. Thanks to the makers and team at bizimply for making my scheduling and time keeping (20 employees) a breeze. Looking forward to the new updates that are due for release soon.
conchur from MCCP, Six Nations (Brussels) & Fish n Chips SRO (Prague)
As a sign in- sign out system itbis excellent, also for shared employees when doing schedules
Really useful having all employee info accessible on cloud
Great shift reporting system and same for suppliers, equipment, and employee issues.
Good to pre calculate forecasted salaries.
Even though it can forecast and has all the info it won't calculate salaries and needs to be further adapted on excel sheets when the system should be able to provide.
Not enough access levels, should be more adaptable in so far as giving a person different access levels as 3 aren't enough meaning some lower level managers have too much info and higher up managers not enough.
Sean from Rub smokehouse
Pros are the system is easy to use
Not being Abel to see spend per area at end of week in cash value
Not having system in place for bank account
In the staff app can we get this to show hrs work for the full month so they can cheack there hrs from home ?
Yuka from Pygmalion Bar and Restaurant
I wish we had found out about Bizimply sooner! With this software, everything you need to manage your business and staff is in one place. Customer support is brilliant, and our reps are there anytime we need them for training or support. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Sharon from The Murray Pub Group
Very Easy to install, use and set up.
Staff are amazing and always on the end of the phone to help in every way they can
its a brilliant software
Katie from Pygmalion
Software is great!! Really helpful in many aspects of our business
Paul from The Lovely Food Company
We have been using Bizimply for over 2 years across our business and find it to be an exceptional tool that helps us manage our business more effectively.
Our restaurants are located across the greater Dublin area, we have a very small management team and use Bizimply not only Daily, but multiple times daily. We no longer bring spread sheets to weekly management meetings, instead we all sit and analyze the business performance based on the information our managers have put on Bizimply.
We have used the time management function to reduce our labour cost by 6% over the last 6 months. All stores also use the simple clock in feature on Ipads.
Being a multi site company, we have persisnat issues with suppliers, so find the supplier issue function very useful.
Because Bizimply can be accessed on our POS Tills, managers and supervisor are spending less time in teh office and more time on the floor with customers.
The Bizimply support team are all very helpful when it comes to questions or change requests, and should be commended.
We here at The Lovely Food Company are very happy to recommend Bizimply
Andy from Bread and Butter Gourmet Market Dublin
We have been using Bizimply in our Food Hall for over a year and find it one of the most important components of our business.
We already had IPads in our store because we use them to stream our music and do our stock takes, so moving across to Bizimply cost us nothing.
The staff now clock in and out on the Ipads, they also love the employee because there is never issues with rosters or rotas.
Our accounts department love the fact that they have real time information on who is on site, and it allows them to close out on payroll at the end of each day instead of weekly as previous.
We use the shift diary to predict our future sales and it has also allowed to us identify quieter periods and we now incentivize staff to use leave period in this time slot.
The fact that all our HR information including contracts and documents are in one, easy access place is fantastic. We also love that we can manage all issues related to staff performance without the need for a paper trail.
We strive hard to create a happy working environment for all our employees and Bizimply helps us to do this.
As of one year in, we do not have any cons or issues with the system and would be happy to recommend.
Aimee from Captain Americas
Extremely user friendly, excellent customer service, constantly adapting to our own specific requirements, all managers and G.M's give 10/10. Even though it is relatively new to the team and some members of our team are not as computer friendly as others, we can't imagine functioning without it now.
Thank you Bizimply :)
Shane from The Happy Pear
We have recently switched to Bizimply from Elephant Smart Business, as our managers were spending hours each week altering schedules and for me personally payroll was taking up to 5/6 hours to do. We have 4 separate locations in the business and many staff work in more than 1 of these locations, with Bizimply it is so easy to separate the different shifts in different locations. With our previous system it was a nightmare trying to sort out separate departments.
The end of day, shift log is such a great tool and something we are finding extremely helpful.
Its making communication much better. The opening manager starts the day by reading over yesterdays log and instantly knows how busy the day was and if there were any issues.
Payroll is much easier now, as when verifying staffs timecards its all in one place. Scheduled hours..timestation hours....hours paid. We have over 90 staff so that is the only thing slowing me down now :)
Maryanne from Roast Meat & Sandwich Shop
We are recent customers to using Bizimply. This program makes it easy to organize and effectively run our business remotely. It also takes the mystery out of relying on our staff to properly record their hours worked. The system is user friendly and the staff of Bizimply makes it easy to navigate as a new customer. Our small business will be expanding internationally and we will be using Bizimply at all of our future locations. Genius!
Michael from The Abbey Hotel Dublin
This software has drastically reduced the time and resources that we would have previously devoted to employee time management and payroll.
The software and application setup was quick and simple. The customer relationship team was fast, efficient and knowledgeable.
Our employee and supervisors, some with barely any computer literacy, have been able to navigate their schedules, manage schedules and use the clock-in system.
I have recommended this product to many other people that I speak with in the industry.
Margaret from Bread & Butter Gourmet Market
We have been using Bizimply here in our store for a while and find it as important as our till systems.
It allows us to see real time information on sales, issues and developments at our site without actually being on site.
The ability to see who is clocked in on site, on our phones is a great addition. Special mention to the help desk team for brightening up our day each time we call
Ciaran from COPPINGER ROW
I can't speak highly enough about this operating system. We were using a clock in/ clock out finger print machine for years but this just took it to the next level. The back office on the software makes scheduling a walk in the park. Setting targets and monitoring costs on a daily/hourly basis.
Input your HR info easy, keep records of any holidays issues. Its all cloud based so you can look at it from anywhere. I have trained up our head chef and 3 supervisors and they have found the interface/ operating system very usual friendly.
Technical support is live and any question I have asked was answered within minutes.
They adapted the software to suit problems that we were having.
I would highly recommend this software to anyone looking to get a simple solution to what can be complicated issues.
