Retail Staff Scheduling made quick and easy

Time and cost savings across a range of areas in the payroll. Also far improved staff communication, staff now under their pay and holiday far better than ever before.

Pros

We have used PARiM to manage our staff, their shifts and absences in our Retail group for several years now. PARiM made it quick and easy to get started and schedule the staff. With its sortable, fast, unlimited database we can manage our flexible staff pool in seconds. It makes managing staff across several locations much quicker and simpler and gives me an overall view of staffing costs and levels Using the Apps, staff can see their current, past and future shifts as well as their gross pay per shift so we receive far fewer pay and holiday queries.

Cons

Its not free software! Just needs integration with a payroll software to make it perfect. However its great value for money with excellent support from the PARiM team.

Many thanks for your review. Payroll software integration is one of our priorities and while we can't publicly state when it will be launched - we can confirm that we are working on it.

I've used PARiM for two separate companies now and it has been a life saver. Simple, efficient, easy

Pros

The customer service is unparalleled. Even being in a different timezone/country doesn't stop PARiM from answering my questions quickly. The layout is also very simple and easy to understand. For a big company with more than 300 employees, we had to find software that was easy enough to understand but also had all the features we wanted and PARiM allows us to have tons of different tools while still being easy to use. Our employees also love the app because now they can easily access their schedules from their phone on the go and everyone is alerted of schedule changes on their phones so there is no excuse for not knowing shift changes! Especially useful for employees who are students and are always busy and don't have time for complicated new software to get used to

Cons

There are not many negatives to be said about PARiM. Our only dislike is that some of the modules with extra features such as SMS messaging and other things cost extra.

For us PARiM ticks all the boxes

We are in the security sector and it saves us a lot of time and has some great security specific features like Lone Worker Check Calls and certificate tracking. We use the certificate tracking feature to give us reminders on all sorts of meetings and staff appraisals.

Pros

PARiM has ticked all the boxes for us and is extremely well supported by their team. We love the colour coding and the automated communication side of it which saves us a lot of admin time, emails and phone calls. We are slowly using more and more of the system and PARiM will suit us as we grow our business.

Cons

Any new additional features we could think of was getting added very quickly to the later version.

I like Parim

Good product, good support, excellent service levels. Easy to use once you've mastered all of the features, of which there are many. A good user tool when managing people with shifts.

Pros

Has all of the features (and more) to make managing people, shifts, locations, pay grades, holidays, visa's, employee documents etc.

Cons

Can take some time to get used to, although, Parim can train you.

Thanks for the review and the comments. We are creating a PARiM academy with extensive video tutorial library/ archive to make it easier. An initial package of online or in person training is always included though

Awesome experience. Looked at 4 others. Parim is best based on ease of use and pricing model were

Scheduling employee shifts became 10x easier and gives us confidence that we can scale the business significantly without a big investment in this area.

Pros

Ease of use. It is simple (which is easier said than done in software design). The software is ease for administration and the app is easy for the employees including compatibility with all of the employee smart phones. The GPS and time-date reference is perfect for our business where employees have multi-site work schedules sometimes in same day. Recordkeeping is excellent but not differentiating factor.

Cons

It is difficult to find a flaw or weakness. I suppose the graphics from the report writer are simple but so what?
