Buddy Punch Software


 

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.

don't need a clocking in unit, and very easy to use

Pros

Very user friendly, cheap, and outstanding customer service. Been using them for a few months now, and loving it! Will definitely recommend to other people.

Cons

I can't think of any yet. All features that I need are in this program. Buddy Punch definitely exceeded my expectations. I no longer need a clocking in unit. Thanks, Buddy Punch!

Thank you Gavin for the review, it is great to hear that you're finding us easy to use and work with. Glad you're liking our facial recognition feature. It is an optional feature that allows users to login, or punch in and out by just taking a photo. Thanks again!

Thank you for the review Charlette. I'm glad you're finding us easy to use. Sorry for any confusion, you can add hours and make changes from your mobile device. You will first visit your time card to do so. On a browser from your mobile device you'll visit your timecard in the top navigation, and in the smartphone app you'll open the menu to visit your timecard. Let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks again!

It makes it easy for me to view and edit time cards as needed. I also like how I can create different categories for employees to clock in under.

Cons

My employees have a terrible time with Buddy Punch. The app does not work on a couple of their phones. When they do punch in on the computer, the buttons don't function like they're supposed to. For instance, they try to punch in and edit time, but it just punches them in and doesn't allow them to edit their time. It has also automatically punched an employee out five minutes after punching in (they did not punch out).

Hello Sean, I'm glad that we've been easy for you to use. I'm sorry to hear that your employees are having problems but thank you for the feedback. We have 2 features that will automatically punch an employee out. We can split shifts at midnight, which keeps time within each day, and we have a maximum hour in a shift. This will automatically punch an employee out as well. Sorry for any confusion on these features. We appreciate your business.

I love the systems ability to put in punch in times, as some times thing are super hectic and I jump right in and don' sometimes punch in for hours after I've already been if office. This system make punching in with corrected time a breeze

I really don't have any issues with this system. Possibly if you could use different colors that may spice up the site.

I would like a feature where employees can break-in and break-out during the day. Also, when I'm fixing times for employees, it would be great if I could see the other punches for that day on the screen so that I can make sure the time is entered correctly.

We love that there is a map feature. This is allowing our employees to create GPS timestamps at our clients homes (house cleaning business) so there is no disputing where they were when. Game changer!

Cons

To use the GPS feature our employees have to clock in and out which makes the timecard a little monotonous, but customer support was prompt in letting me know that they are working on this issue. It's a minor thing for the overall technical advancement....

I found it to be easy to change, add and correct my times. As supervisor also found approving the time cards to be easy. Other team members also found the website easy to use.

Cons

We should be able to log in from home or mobile to approve the time card.
Because company does not want us to clock in and out remotely it is also preventing us to approve time card. The two should be separate.

Pros

If it would integrate with our CDK Lightspeed software it would be great and the quickbooks setup is a little odd but I am sure that is quickbooks

Time efficiency. Also the ability to have issues dealt with on a personal level. It's reassuring to know that I can ask a question or make a suggestion, and a response is received almost instantly, even on the weekends. AND, those suggestions are listened to, not just made to "deaf ears". For that I am greatly appreciative.

Pros

Ease of use. Employees have had minimal problems with the changeover from time cards. Ability to process payroll in over half the time.

Cons

Inability to have the employees listed in alphabetical order by last name as opposed to first name.

If you need anything else please let us know, and thanks again for taking the time!
