Buddy Punch is a cloud-based time clock solution suitable for businesses of all sizes. Key features include overtime calculating, GPS tracking, PTO accrual, time card approval and job costing.

Buddy Punch enables employees to clock in using different job codes and locations as needed. Employees can also be required to share their GPS location or use an authorized IP address in order to clock in. The solution also has a webcam feature that can automatically take a picture of the person doing the punching as they click on the punch in or punch out button.

Managers can view and edit information on employees assigned to them and approve time cards and PTO requests. Users can set up rules where punches are automatically rounded up, down or to the nearest selected increment. Overtime can be calculated in multiple ways based on requirements. The solution also integrates with QuickBooks Online and Desktop.

Supported Operating System(s):
Mac OS , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 10

    Punching in Made Easy

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality

    N/A

    From an employee's viewpoint, it makes clocking in and out and managing work hours extremely convenient.

    Pros

    I like most being able to:

    - Track my work hours
    - Easily punch in or out
    - Manage my lunch break time
    - Access the platform on either my work computer or mobile device

    Cons

    I like least about the product:

    - Mobile interface doesn't allow users to return to previous sections without taking them out of the entire app
    - Internet access is required for entry of app. Sometimes, you just want to check your hours, but cant do so with having access to the internet.
    - There should be a fingerprint sign option.

    Thanks for the review Tonye, it is great to hear that you're finding us easy to use and access. Also on the mobile app you can use the menu in the upper left hand corner to return to any area as needed. Thanks for the feedback on an offline mode, it is something we're looking to add in the future. Thanks again!

    It's enabled us to upgrade from a very antiquated timekeeping system to something more advanced and easier at the same time!

    Pros

    It's easy, it's intuitive, and staff are really receptive to using it.

    Cons

    The interface to QuickBooks is a little tricky. Sometimes, things don't come across exactly as I had expected.

    Thank you Reanna for the review, it's great to hear that you're finding us easy to use and intuitive! It sounds like you're using our integrations with QuickBooks Desktop or QuickBooks Online. The desktop integration requires use of a tool provided by Intuit, so unfortunately we don't have as much control with that integration as we'd like to. If you ever do need help with it please let us know. Thanks again!

    Overall the best system I've used to check in and out for work and I was able to access it on my phone which is always a plus incase the system was down at work.

    Pros

    It is user friendly I didn't even have to look at instructions to realize this system is common sense. Very easy to punch in and out and love the fact I was able to send the request to change times on my own instead of informing human resources it needed to be adjusted.

    Cons

    Didn't have any dislikes about this system.

    Pros

    Our staff was able to transition to using Buddy Punch across a wide variety of shifts, so it was easy, simple and did what we needed it to. I like that users can go back and edit as well as see reports, plus employers can review it easily and create categories

    Cons

    The strength is also its weakness - it's so simple that it doesn't have extra features. It'd be nice to have some way of tallying categories up for the week so one doesn't have to do it on the side. Ex: sick leave/ absences / regular clocked in hours.

    I really like this software and have not seen any problems thus far. Im glad our organization has Buddy Punch and have had a good experience using it.

    Pros

    This system is very easy to use, and keep track of your work hours. I make my own hours, so having this system makes it easy to use different ways to clock hours for multiple grants that I have. It keeps track of what hours go to which great, and makes it so easy for my director to log.

    Cons

    I have not had any problems, and I continue to use the software, along with all my coworkers.

    A few years ago I needed to find a stamp clock for the company I am working. How much more choice there is now on-line! I had my son and a friend of him painting my house this summer, so I just needed for a month a piece of software easy to set up, and easy to use. Tried out various stamp clocks but Buddy Punch was my favourite so I used it. The boys had it on their smart phones, it could not be easier. The reporting was fine as well. So no complains here.

    Pros

    Very easy to use
    Good reporting
    Smart Phone app

    Cons

    Actually I do not have a complain, the software did what i wanted it to do.

    I’m able to see past time cards without contacting staffing, and that is really helpful!

    Pros

    It’s easy, fast, and not overly complicated. It really keeps it simple which is SO appreciated when I’m in a rush and not looking to spend a lot of time focusing on how to make it work. As a not particularly tech-savvy person, I’m so glad that my company uses this system as opposed to something else.

    Cons

    Occasionally, there will be little bugs and I’ll have to re-download the app to let me log in. But besides that, I think it’s great.

    Overall I love BP. I suggest and recommend other companies to use it. It is fast and efficient and user friendly .

    Pros

    I felt it though it was very easy to input your hours and clock out.

    Cons

    There were a few glitches but I did mess up in the beginning because I never provided BP with my gps location so part of it was my fault.

    Pros

    Buddy Punch is easy to use, both on the phone app and on the desktop. The edit feature is helpful for those times when you forget to sign in or out. Also, the note feature comes in handy for letting the boss know what your doing with their time, especially when working outside of the office.

    Cons

    The only thing I can think to improve on this system would be to have banner or badge notifications to remind the user to submit timecards by their due date.

    Wish it would integrate with my payroll company.
    When setting up a new employee it doesn't take you through all steps possilby needed. Also set up for new employee has a couple check boxes that are different when you go back into their account after they are created.
