NimbleSchedule Software


 

NimbleSchedule is a Web-based labor management and scheduling system that is both simple and collaborative, offering an intuitive interface for both managers and employees to manage schedules, time off requests and shift swaps.

NimbleSchedule is entirely Web-based, with access 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet connection. It's designed to be speedy; users can create schedules and then notify employees via email or text message when a new one is available or changes are made to an existing schedule.

The system offers visual snapshots; from a single dashboard, users can see all critical scheduling information across every location and department and then drill down to real-time costs and other data.

NimbleSchedule allows employees to pick and choose the shifts they'd like to work. They can also submit requests for time off as well as shift swap requests. This automatically notifies the manager, who can approve or decline. 

NimbleSchedule automatically complies with existing labor regulations like overtime and violations, while also offering reporting to the management team. Using labor costs and sales figures, users can extract which employees are successful and which are costing the company money.

NimbleSchedule is suitable for a number of industries, including health care, hospitality, retail, maintenance and more.

Easy to see all schedules and filter in useful ways.
Moderately easy to make entire schedules and make changes.

Likes Least

No way to "go back" or fix a mistake without just deleting and re creating.

Recommendations

Once you get the hang of creating many shifts at once this tool is pretty easy to use. Some quirks but not difficult to manage or learn.

It translates well to the application on my Iphone and runs smoothly.

Likes Least

The time off requests get confusing, they tend to "disappear" when they are requested due to default settings I believe. Otherwise seems to work nicely!

Recommendations

I would make sure if you are admin you go into the software as a regular user to see what they have access to, this helps to understand what your employees are able to not only have access to, but what they can or cannot see.

Very flexible and adaptable to our unique needs. Customer service is outstanding.

Likes Least

Very few complaints, there are always some hiccups, but as it is a relatively new system, there are some projects that would be nice to have and are on their way.

Recommendations

Do a full walkthrough with the techs, and make sure they show you all of the options with the sight, as there are many utilities to use.

Theater Staffing

Likes Best

I like giving my crew members responsibility for their scheduling.

Likes Least

While the product is the best product for Theater staffing that I have come across, it was not designed necessarily for Theaters.
Each event is different and may require different skills sets. Right now, it would require creating many shifts to cover each duty before posting, and it would not prevent staff from requesting several different spots.

Recommendations

If assigning shifts and scheduling your staff is time consuming, Nimble Schedule is a great product and will solve most of you scheduling issues.

In general, I am very happy with this product as the person putting together the schedules!
It is easy to see when requests are put in, and it is nice that our nurses can easily pick up shifts and we do not have to deal as much with filling in open shifts.
It is very helpful that we cannot double book an employee - I'm sure that has saved me countless times.
I have had a good experience with Nimble for the most part.

Likes Least

Occasionally when our employees look at the month view of their schedule, the program switches days and patient accounts. This is the biggest flaw we have encountered.
It is also sometimes a pain to enter shift times, though that is becoming less of a hassle as I am becoming more comfortable with the program.
On holidays, it is great that they are all entered so we cannot forget what day the holidays are, but I have found that the system also blocks out all employees as "unavailable" on every holiday. This has caused some confusion and made those days a little bit harder to deal with.
I have also noticed that it is possible to double book a shift - something that we have to watch for closely but it is also helpful when we are setting up mentor shifts where we actually intentionally double book!
One last thing - it is hard (depending on account label colors) to print visible calendars.

Recommendations

It took a little while for us to get the hang of making shifts in patterns - I'd advise looking at how that works right away to make the job easier!

As a small business, Ximble provides everything we need at a competitive price. They have a plan that gives me exactly what I need. I only pay for what I need.

Cons

I dislike that it can be difficult to add in a Lunch Break of 1 hour. I wish there was a preset, configurable "Take Lunch" button.

Pros

I like the ability to swap/trade shifts and to request to pick up a shift. The features for clock in zones and pin codes and such are all interesting features that make Ximble stand out.

Cons

A fair amount of glitches and communication with technical support resulting in 20min-an hour wait times and tickets being opened. Issues are generally resolved but it can be frustrating to not have the program work. I also wish I could move shifts around between employees in the monthly view instead of only the week view.

New to Nimble scheduling. It is time consuming to set up, but it has value down the road when setting up future schedules. Great feature is staff can see schedules from home, they can submit leave requests via the schedule and approvals are made the same way. Support is good with online help.

Super easy-to-use tool that provides the simplicity I need and the flexibility to adapt to changes and sizes of staffing. With our small team, there are actually a lot of features that I don't use but I can see them being useful. Obviously someone who has had to manage a team of staff was involved in making this tool - it really includes everything you need - and online support is phenomenal.

Nimble is very reliable for the staffs and the people who is doing the schedule per se. Always reminding us about our schedule an hour before and make us always informed if there is an update with regards to the work. And the customer service is also excellent. They can answer you immediately if you have any querries.

We are non-profit who uses Ximble for our time clock. It works for what is needed, but sometimes our employees have a hard time with clocking in and out and that saving to their time sheets. I do like the approval process.

I did my research. This is the lowest cost time tracker and scheduler that has all the features I need (and much more that I don't but nice to know they are there).

It takes a little getting used to, but the customer service is top notch and helps you find your way around until you get the hang of it.

Pros

Great Customer Service
Integrates with Gusto payroll
Low cost

Cons

Not user friendly enough

New to this app. Been using for about a month now. So far it seems pretty good. Had to learn it of course but it's easy to learn and navigate. The only issues I have so that I don't care for is that you can't request to get paid for future time off if you don't already have it built up in your acct. Also, I don't like the fact that once your days off request is approved you can't go back and see if you entered for paid time off or unpaid off. And you have to go the administrator of your account and ask them.

Pros

Easy to learn and Navigate. The contact support team is also very friendly and efficient in answering any questions you have in a quick manner.

Cons

Not being able to view your time off request after it's been approved to see what kind of time off you requested. Also, can't request paid time off for future if you haven't already accrued that time off.

Advice to Others

I would consider this if you have a small practice and not many employees. Otherwise, people may be contacting you often about their time off requests and I could see that being annoying.

Have been using this program for a few weeks now. Very easy to use, convenient when scheduling with the color coding system. Clocking in and out is very easy, as well as tracking job numbers and so on. One thing that could be fixed somehow is fixing of the clock in and out times. If the system sets the clock to 2:00 but you clocked in at say 2:04 then if you try to adjust your schedule from 2:00 on. It should be fine.. but it will show you time overlapping and it becomes annoying

We've only been using NimbleSchedule for a few weeks, but so far, so good! The Android App I am told is a bit clunkier than the iOS app. The main thing I wish the app would do would be GoogleApps single sign on - this would be a huge feature to add!

We have jumped from scheduling software to scheduling software without being entirely happy. With nimble, we are at a point where we accept what we have. We think there is probably a better solution, but we can't find it. Until we do, Nimble is a great option.

Pros

It doesn't have as many bugs as some of the newer scheduling software out there.

Cons

It's not the most user-friendly, it's UI isn't that impressive, and it's APP is not great.

Advice to Others

If you are tired of looking around and want something that will get you from A - B this is your software. Dependable, but not going above and beyond.

A great app for those who need reminding of schedules. I communicate alot in Nimble for staff announcements. Overall a good site to use. I just wish the new platform was as easy. My eyes are used to the old app platform, but I will consider changing over soon.

Pros

Schedule reminders, Announcement creation, shift creation

Cons

hard on the eyes in the new platform. At least hard on my eyes
