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.

Pros

I work in many different locations and not at preset times. Buddy Punch allows me to accurately track time worked in just a few clicks. No more pencil and paper notes to lose track of. I am also paid at two different rates. Buddy Punch allows me to select one or the other easily and quickly. No more guessing games when it comes to payroll.

Cons

I have not had any problem with Buddy Punch.

Thank you Trish for the review, it is great to hear that you're finding us accurate, quick, and easy to use. It sounds like you're using our codes/job codes function, which allows you to select from specific jobs or codes when you are punching in. I'm glad to hear it is working well for you. Thanks again!

Thank you for the review, it is great to hear that you're finding us easy and simple to use! With Buddy Punch you can setup 2 different types of ways to enter time. Punches, which specify a start and end time, or a duration entry, which is a total time. We will always summarize each day as well as a punch in/out on your time card too, so you'll see that total. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I like that Buddy Punch does what it needs to. I never have problems so I'm not even sure what it's like to work with the support. However, if it's anything like the platform, I suspect it's a smooth, goal oriented process to work with support.

Cons

I don't always favor the function that logs me out after a few minutes. But, I know this is for security purposes so I wouldn't change it.

My company went from using paper to clock in to using buddy punch and I really loved it. It was difficult for non tech savvy people though.

Pros

That I could clock in and out instead of writing down my hours

Cons

It was a little difficult to use and after deadlines were passed, very difficult to clear up any misunderstandings

Pros

The simplicity of it works... for myself and the users. We've tried other online timesheets and the users just seemed to be challenged by them with submitting hours.

Cons

Two things I would love: 1) The timesheet printout (pdf) is there but could be formatted neater, and 2) the ability to enter in a negative adjustment amount (which I know is a big request).

Thank you for the review, it is great to hear that you and your employees are finding us simple to use. We do have a PDF formatted option called the Employee Detail Report. You'll find it under the reports menu item. While you can adjust any punch in or out, I believe you are looking to save a negative number. While we can't save a negative number today I've added your request to our customer request list. Thank you.

Pros

Right off the bat I was impressed that Buddy Punch offered a 30 day trial, whereas most other systems offered only one or two week trials. Before our 30 days was even up we knew this is the program we were going to use. Buddy Punch was easy to use for all of our employees and I am able to access it from my home rather than having to remember when I went into the office to make adjustments to time cards, approve PTO, or print reports. Also, even though I set specific pay periods, I am able to print reports with whatever date ranges I indicate. I find that very useful. The last feature that we have been impressed with was the ability to select different locations that employees can punch in/ out of. We have multiple locations and it is helpful know where people are physically. Great program!

Cons

I have the mobile app downloaded onto my phone but it is extremely limited. In hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have talked that up so much to my management team, because it turned out to not offer many options or capability.

Thank you for the review Sarah! It's great to hear that you're taking advantage of our PTO approval feature, reporting, and geo-fencing features. With the smartphone app you're able to approve PTO, view and edit time cards, and view who's currently punched in. We don't have a reports option on the smartphone apps today, but I'll reach out to you to see what features you might be interested in so we can add them to the list for future development. Thanks again.

Makes it easy for employees, especially new ones to use the system and keep track of hours.

Pros

Fairly simple to use with very minimal distractions.

Cons

The least liked feature in my humble opinion would have to be that perhaps making it so that people with disabilities of hearing can utilize.

Overall very positive. There is room for development but it does exactly what it's supposed to do and is clean and organized.

Pros

Very intuitive and easy to use from a desktop or the app.

Cons

There should be an automatic calculator for how much more you need to work before hitting your hours. Doing it manually each time when it doesn't round your minutes can be time consuming.

It was 100% dummy proof. Ultimately, it was decided that clocking in and out didn't fit our team structure, but it was necessary to test out.

Cons

I like that it was user-friendly so that people can clock in via an app as well as online, but it make's it easy for time card fraud if people can clock in on their mobile device from home or during their commute.

Pros

Easiest punching in and out system I've ever used in my 8 years of job experience. Can edit/add/remove information about punch ins/punch outs, can leave notes for managers and so much more

Cons

Sometimes it takes a little bit to load or freezes

Buddy Punch does take an active internet connection to use, but we are working on an offline mode as a feature. Thanks again!

Our church used it at one time, and then for some reason, our business office manager wanted to switch to something else. It wasn't very user friendly and didn't allow me to view the information in real time. I'm really glad that she decided to go back to Buddy Punch

Pros

It's so easy to make changes if you miss a punch

Overall, it has been great! It has taken the hassle out of keeping time. No more adding times, calculating, and then punching them in redundantly. Buddy punch has taken the work out of payroll and time keeping.

Pros

Buddy punch offers an easy solution to employee time keeping. The thing about Buddy Punch that I love most is the ability to sync/ integrate employee's times with accounting software. This feature has made it incredibly easy to manage payroll, and ensure your employees are properly tracked via the time they provide through a number of offered apps.

Cons

A longer trial is the only thing that I would suggest. At least double the currently offered trial. It would allow users to get a better feel for the program and become accustomed to it before deciding to purchase. But once they become hooked on this software, I truly believe they will be willing to pay the full price that is offered so reasonably.
