Product meets our needs perfectly

We needed a better way to manage time cards and run payroll, than our old time clock (which was expensive and required manual corrections). Zira’s time tracking (biometric and mobile) and scheduling solution meets our exact needs. We’re able to more accurately understand when our employees were working and expedite payroll processing.

Pros

Zira meets our workforce management needs perfectly. The product is beautifully designed. It helps us create / manage employee schedules, shift swap requests, time tracking, time off approvals, and more. Before, we needed several tools to accomplish what we can do entirely with Zira. We can export our timesheets into the exact format required by our payroll provider, so that our hours are accurate and we can process payroll faster. The price point is very reasonable, given what you get.

Cons

Not much I can think of - we have used the product for more than 1 year now. We a re working with the team to get our custom reports built in.

Beautiful Product, Powerful & Flexible

Pros

The product is very easy to use. After I invited my employees to the mobile app they were able to figure it out without any help. I also received major kudos from our executives and managers as well as the employees for how efficient our team has become with the policy builder automation features. I definitely think our Zira Pilot (what Zira calls their account managers) has been amazing. Always responsive, very helpful, and it is clear that our feedback gets communicated to the whole team because we notice our ideas and feature requests getting implemented very rapidly.

Cons

In the 8 months we have been on the platform no complaints.

Reasons for Choosing Zira

Better features, a better interface for managers/admis and employees (easier to use and to learn), more features on the platform (automation, trends, reporting, messaging, A.I. features as well!) and even still it was lower cost than the alternative.

Reasons for Switching to Zira

Zira is cheaper and has much more functionality. Once we saw how easy Zira was to use, and that the flexibility of all the features could be configured however we wanted, we made the switch.

Game Changer and Time Saver

This company came to our attention at the perfect time, we were struggling with scheduling and every company I set up meetings with did not meet my requirements or expectations. We met the creator of the company and some of the rest of the team and they were amazing, kind, and very professional. Anytime we had any questions, no matter what time of day, they immediately responded and handled the situation. I honestly couldn't recommend this company more, I know they have a mission and vision that is worth supporting and are young, ambitious entrepreneurs that have a knack and passion for what they do.

Pros

Our team really enjoyed the cleanliness and ease of use when it comes to the software itself. We have many employees who aren't tech savvy and they never have any issues figuring out how to use the system. The setup is easy to navigate and has a very modern, clean look.

Cons

The software was still under development when we first started using it so there were a few bugs, but in less than 2 months they worked out every issue that was encountered. It has become an almost flawless system in our opinion.

Reasons for Choosing Zira

Without putting down the other company, I'm sure they would probably be a great fit for someone else, Zira personally had a lot of qualities that I was looking for in a scheduling system. Their design has a clean and fresh look to it, I always see how they continuously are updating and bettering their system to ensure that it's modern and easy to navigate. The other company's layout looked like an Excel spreadsheet and was overwhelming to look at. the creator of Zira, during our first meeting, showed me everything they had to offer including features that they were in the process of launching. The other company wouldn't show me features they offered because we had to commit first, for us that was a red flag because it felt like maybe there actually isn't much beneath the surface.

Very happy that I switched from 7Shifts

Pros

The Zira time clock was incredibly easy to set up. I downloaded the app on my iPad and set it next to our existing 7Shifts, 7Punches tablet. I wasn't planning on switching just then, but when my employees came in the next day, some of which can not speak English and are not very tech-savvy, they saw the Zira Portal and started using it right away without training. I think that is what I appreciate most about Zira. Everything they do is incredibly easy to figure out, and once you set things up, you don't have to worry about it anymore.

Cons

No issues. Zira Manager and the Portal time clock have been a great addition to our process since day 1.

Reasons for Choosing Zira

Zira seemed like a better product overall. > More features > Better designed > Easier to use.

Reasons for Switching to Zira

I was looking for something that was a little more modern and something that didn't rely on PINs for punch in and punch out. My employees would either forget their PIN number or clock in for their friends when they weren't actually at our facility yet.
