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.

Thank you for the review, it's great to hear you're finding us easy to use. When punching in or out your status will change to show the punch, if you have a poor internet connection you will need to wait until your status changes before exiting. Thanks again!

First time online timesheet user

Our business has grown exponentially and the need for an easier way to time track was needed. Having BP allows me the opportunity to see who is clocked in real-time and the timesheets at a glance.

Pros

Ease of setup and use.
I have personally experienced after hours assistance and that is hugely important to me. My hours are not limited to 9:00-5:00.

Cons

Nothing. I can’t think of one thing that is a drawback.

Love Buddy Punch!

Pros

Buddy Punch makes it simple and easy to manage employee hours.

Cons

Sometimes when editing punches and backspacing the time it will reset the whole thing so you have to start over. It only costs 10 extra seconds, so it's a very minor complaint.

Thank you for the review Chelsea, it is great to hear that you're finding us simple and easy to use. Our time picker allows the use of the keyboard as well as a picker that allows you to select a time. If using the keyboard and holding down backspace would clear the entry. Thanks for your business, we appreciate it!

Buddy Punch Rocks

Easy to use, cost effective. We run it off of one computer in the shop and all of the techs punch in and out. My office opens up the software and all the hours are already listed. Works like a charm.

Pros

Face recognition. The employees can only sign in and out for themselves.

Cons

There is not any one thing that I can say as a con.

Easy Enough

Pros

This is one of the easiest ways we have ever ran payroll! Buddy Punch calculates all the hours for you, so you just implement it into running payroll with your service provider. It was very convenient to use.

Cons

While this program is easy to use, the price point is not something that I feel is fair. They are not a payroll company, which most companies do offer at a lower or the same price point.

Easy to use

Pros

This software, used for our employees to clock in and out was very simple to use. It is hard to find a software this simple that doesn't have any glitches or errors. Our free trial was a great way to test it out.

Cons

The price was a little steep for us. We tried the free trial but soon switched to a payroll company that offered the same features for a little less.

Best way to clock in/out

Benefits are how fast I can punch in and out. Normally I have to login into my computer, by just doing that, I can be engaged and absolutely forget to punching. With this BuddyPunch, I have it ready on my phone at the door so I'm clocked in as soon as I step into the office and ready to go.

Pros

Everything, easy to use, simple to bone. If i ever have a question, I'm one click away from answering it myself

Cons

Sorry nothing to put here. This is the best thing I have ever used to clock in/out with.

Very Intuitive

Overall experience has been that it is a very efficient and intuitive system for capturing our time in and out of the office. I have heard positive things about it's functionality company-wide.

Pros

As a user, it is very simple. It is well-organized online as well as on the app.

Cons

If you forget to clock-in you have to have someone else go in and correct it, which is likely best for integrity purposes but inconvenient for those who genuinely forget to clock in/out.
