People are the core of any business. So how do you balance staff management with morale? You get a solid Deputy.

There are lots of things that make up a successful business: great work, healthy margins, efficient processes and dedicated staff. However, getting the mix right can be tricky. Your business may be making profits, but are your staff happy? Investing in the right apps and platforms can improve staff management, thus improving staff morale and attitude.

Time is money

Timesheets are a part of any business. You need to keep track of hours not only billings, but for pay slips too. Deputy® creates timesheets when your employees start and finish their shifts: employees simply clock on and off, and then you can approve them at the touch of a button with a network connection.

This visibility is integral, especially as more businesses work on the road – whether it’s a food truck or a mobile banker, staff now expect to be mobile to meet customer expectations. This can make it tricky for management to monitor teams in terms of punctuality and attendance.

Deputy helps solve this problem. It comes with geo-location and face-detection technology so you can see when and where you staff have started and finished their shifts.

Making sense of pay slips

When you’re managing a large team, you have to process a plethora of timesheets, but when things get busy it’s not uncommon for timesheets to pile up and finance teams to work late. Deputy can speak to your existing payroll system so it’s easy to implement. To speed things up even further, you can import your existing records from a compatible payroll system into Deputy, to ensure legacy records aren’t lost.

Access at your fingertips

The way we work has changed. We need information quickly and accurately. That’s why Deputy can be accessed from a number of compatible mobile devices, meaning businesses may not need to invest in a new suite of tech – it’s compatible with plenty of existing operating systems including iOS, Android and Windows.

Storing sensitive material is vital in business. That’s why everything on Deputy is backed up. It reduces those admin headaches of looking for old timesheets and payslips.

By streamlining processes, rostering the right person for the right job and paying your staff on time, you’ll improve efficiencies, reduce admin and increase staff retention. Now that’s great for business.

Get your Deputy to keep your business in check.
