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.

Better able to track my time and other employees

Pros

I really like that an employee has the ability to view previous weeks timesheets and make corrections with managements approval.

Cons

Occasionally it lags when logging in but this does not happen often and otherwise I am very happy with this product.

Pros

We are a small school and use Buddy Punch to track our non-faculty positions. It has some great features for its price point.

Cons

I with I could control who is allowed to use the phone app to punch in. It makes it a little too easy for some people to clock in while in the parking lot rather than at their desk because if you are on our wifi in the parking lot it shows you to be coming from the school's allowed IP. This could also be addressed with an employee policy though.

Buddy Punch saves my team of managers time when trying to collect time-sheets and by being able to approve time-sheets remotely. It's also easier to log in on a daily basis via the app so staff stay more current on their hours. This makes it easier not having to recall 2 weeks of time worked like when they were using a paper time-sheet.

Pros

Buddy Punch is very straight forward. It was easy for all levels of computer literate people to adopt.

Cons

Updates come quite often: being newer software it is understandable. The downside to this is that once I settle into learning something new it's somewhat annoying to have to re learn some things over and over again to the 'new way'. Updates have always turned out for the better overall though.

Pros

Buddy Punch is very basic and simple .Thus making it an intuitive tool which everyone in my organization uses to track themself. I like that this is web based ,and this has been an huge relief. Our last time clock tool was installed on only one pc ,and thus we all had to go the PC location to clock-in or clock-out ,which wasn't my favorite activity. Since switching to Buddy Punch ,I am able to clock-in and clock-out right from my desk,and there is nothing else the modern day worker loves than convenience.

Cons

I will say nothing. Just letting me conveniently clock in and out from my desk does me a lot of good,and I am willing to forego all other shortcomings ,and in all honesty ; there hasn't been any shortcoming.

Pros

Intuitive ,and a much cheaper option than Toggle which we have tried in the past ,and they completely avoided the per user billing system,which I find very ridiculous.
Buddy-punch provides my team with an easy to use clock based punch in/punch out time management application, which didn't require a fingerprint scanner and still works. Buddy-punch has generally given us value for our money.

Cons

Anytime our employees have failed to sign in , they get multiple email notifications which some have found to be very pestering.

It quickly allows you to view all employee punches and correct them if needed. The software allows you to jump back and forth between pages in a very fast and efficient way. Great application overall!

Cons

The interface for viewing employee punches could be formatted to be easier to read. Perhaps using a higher contrast between line items so that it's easier on the eyes to jump between dates when going thru the various punches.

I think the button showing you where to change your time card is kind of hard to see. It is self explanatory, but a little hard to find when everything else is so much bigger than it.

Huge time saver. We used to use paper time cards with a punch clock on the wall at all of our locations. Now users at all locations can punch in and it is all in one place - all ready for export to our payroll service.

Pros

Great to be able to log in from multiple platforms (including mobile apps) with ability to track/see locations of punch ins/outs. PTO calendar available with ease of adding custom PTO requests. Easy export, specific for our payroll service. Tech support has been fantastic. Easy to get started with Buddy Punch and each employee profile is easy to set up. Nice to be able to assign employees to a manager in Buddy Punch for approvals.

Cons

No real issues to complain about or note as a least favorite. Any issues we find seem to get addressed quickly for us.

How simple it is to use and has the option to clock in anywhere. It does have an app which is great too and allows for easy use. The simplicity is nice.

Hello Sandy, thank you for the review! I'm glad you are finding us simple and easy to use. When you're punching in you'll get a message that says "please wait" while your punch is being saved. Your screen will then display your new status, such as punched in or out. This will be your indicator that a punch has saved. Let us know if you need anything else, we are happy to help!

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).
