Pros: Easy to use. Can use it anywhere. I am glad to have the access on my phone to help while I am walking to the front door I can just punch in.

Cons: The ONLY thing I do not like is before your manager approves your hours. The system does not add up the hours. I understand they are not "approved" hours. But this is silly that you can not gauge your hours because of this flaw.

Overall: Helpful on the go access. I like that you can punch out at a specific time since I run errands outside of work then estimate my clock out time.

Time saver for sure. Easy. Accurate.

Pros: Ease of use and reporting at week end. Very easy for everyone. Getting new people set up is also easy.

Cons: I wish I could have all employees active each week even though I mostly only have 7-8 signing in and out each week.

Overall: Not keeping paper timesheets anymore.

Pros: It's ease of use. I don't have to buy a time clock and it can be used anywhere. My employees can download the app and use it on their phone.

Pros: Very user friendly. Also the ability as administrator to correct hours, track vacation time, and use it in multiple locations.

Cons: There is nothing that I do not like about the software so far. It seems to be doing everything I need it to do.

Overall: Easy to report payroll now since I have multiple locations and share staff between those locations.

Also thanks for highlighting that through a single account you can use Buddy Punch anywhere you need to use it (multiple locations, staff in different areas) - we do not charge a separate fee for business locations, it is all included in the same monthly price. We appreciate your business!

Smooth transition, great price.

Pros: Easy for employees to figure out. Great department classification functionality. Adjustments needing approval, but allowing the employees to initiate saves a lot of time instead of making Managers do all adjusting.

Cons: Reporting functions not as intiuitive as I would like. Can figure out, just not as easy as other functionality in the software.

Overall: Way better analysis of time spent in each department, along with time savings of employees manually adding up paper time cards.

Thanks for the review Joe! I'm glad that the transition to Buddy Punch has been smooth and that we are easy to use for your employees. Also I see that you're using our approval process for time card changes - it is a great way to have the employee initiate any changes and for you to approve them. Thanks again for taking the time to write the review, we appreciate your business!

Pros: I like that we can view where are employees physically are when they are clocking in. It also is easier to track their time minute by minute.

Cons: We do feel the financial investment is a bit high.We also are new so we are still making sure it is worth what we are paying.

Pros: I love many things about this software!
1) It is self-explanatory. Even the most technically-challenged employee can figure out how to use it, for the most part.
2) Edits are made by the employee, and approved by the administrator where other programs require the administrator to make all the changes. This can be daunting depending on how many edits and how many employees there are that need them in a single pay period. With BuddyPunch, it's super easy to get employees to take responsibility for their own errors and edits.
3) This program is available even when our electricity goes out or our server goes down. And it doesn't take up any space on our server. The other time clock software we used to use was always a challenge for our IT experts to reload when they were doing updates due to the amount of space it took up on our server and because it wasn't updated to current technology standards available today. Employees are even able to clock in when they're outside the office doing work.
4) I like that employee messages and their times show up in the same report.

Cons: The time card reports are what I like least about this software. Each employee's time card report has to be downloaded separately. I would prefer that all employees show up on one report for more convenience. I end up copying and pasting each employee's excel report into one excel spreadsheet each pay period.

Overall: Ease of use for employees and administrator alike

Thank you for your review Xenia, we appreciate you taking the time! Thank you for pointing out all of the features in your review, including the editing ability for employees and the approval on your end. This can be an overlooked feature that I know helps when managing employees. Also thank you for the feedback on the time cards, we'll look into making that a batch process. Also take a look at the Payroll Export, which is another report that shows time worked for each employee each pay period, it usually provides the data you need. Let us know if you need anything else, and thanks again!

Pros: Seems to be very intuitive. Learning the process was rather straightforward once I opened every option and saw where to go. Still learning, but have processed 4 payrolls without any glitches.

Pros: It's simple and fast for my employees. I evaluated other software that was clunky and complex and did a million things that I didn't need. Buddy punch allows employees to quickly clock in and makes it easy for me to manage their punches.

Cons: Editing punches isn't very intuitive. When an employee misses a punch, the screen where I enter the correct times and date is difficult to use.

Overall: It saves me time and is simple.

Pros: This software is incredibly easy to use both by the administrator and by the employees. They make it easy to be compliant with federal and state laws for tracking hourly employee time and breaks. It is easy to control which employees can change their own check ins/check outs, and it is incredibly easy to make changes when needed. I also love that employees can choose to fill in their own PTO and mark it appropriately for what type they have used.

Overall: Incredibly easy tracking of hourly employees time cards including break times, lunches, and PTO taken.

Pros: Buddy Punch is easy to use, and takes the hassle out of keeping track of hours worked. Before we used this software, we were using a spreadsheet and it was a mess!

Cons: We wish that the fee was per employee. We only have one contracted person to keep track of. Five to ten dollars per employee would be adequate. Similar to the fee other business services charge per month.

Overall: It keeps track of the hours for you, freeing up more time to attend to other business needs.

It works great for in the field. The only improvement that I would like to see is to have a Payroll Summary Report per pay period like the Employee Details Report and prefer to be able to print the Payroll Summary report all on one page per employee without having to adjust the margins on an excel sheet.

Comments: We tested out several online timecard systems and have been extremely happy with BuddyPunch! We're a small office that has owners out of state so leverage technology and having visibility on the team when the owners are out of town is very important. BuddyPunch has been easy to setup and use. The online clockin with the QR code can be ever so slightly twitchy sometimes but with each iteration the system gets better and better. I team loves being able to clockin with their phones and those of us not in the office love being able to see their login picture and GPS location. Win for all!

We have only a few staff members who are using Buddy Punch at this time but even they tell me that it's easy to use. When there are changes or edits to be made Buddy Punch is simple enough for me to go in and make the changes without wasting a lot of time.

Overall: We were using a simple system for employees to track their time. Our company is very remote and we don't have supervisors at each location. I had an employee request to go full time (from 20 hours to 30 hours per week) since he had "so much work to do". He began billing the company for 30 hour per week. After about 2 months of this, we decided to implement Buddy Punch. Needless to say, that employee has not worked more than 22 hours per week since we implemented Buddy Punch. I can honestly say, that Buddy Punch paid for itself in the FIRST week of implementation.

Thank you for the review Ayde, we appreciate it. I'm glad Buddy Punch is easy to use and understand. Thank you for pointing out the notes feature, it allows employees to leave a detail on why they might be punching out early, late, etc. In regards to your comment on real time punches, perhaps there is some confusion - you can punch in real time with Buddy Punch. As soon as you click the punch in button the time is captured at that moment in time. Also the employee option to request changes is a feature that can be turned on or off. Any changes only take effect if they are approved and you can turn off changes all together, if needed. Let me know if you have any other questions, we appreciate your business!

Pros: Customer Service

Cons: Not flexible and upgrades needed. Need an hour only option vs clock in/out.

Overall: We were searching for a product that would allow our team to track hours simply. This is a great start. The team can track their hours, and our accounting can pull them down with ease. Customer support has been amazing and the primary reason we are sticking with them. They respond day and night to emails and questions. We are very happy with the product to date. We are hoping that in the future the app will become a little more flexible, and maybe instead of just a clock in/out process, there is an option just to put in the hours worked for the day. Looking forward to seeing what the future holds with Buddy Punch! Great company!

Recommendations to other buyers: When you set it up, be sure you know the exact days you want it to close weekly. Stay on top of team to input hours.

Pros: easy, user friendly

Cons: haven't had any yet

Overall: Since the beginning of time we've used paper time card templates, which is fine for a small business just starting out. However, as we've grown, we've felt the need to implement something electronic that allows us to log time more accurately. Buddy Punch is user-friendly and web-based, which made the transition a breeze. We were using it as our only time card source within the very first week. It also integrates with our payroll system, saving me precious time each week!

I see that you're using one of our payroll integration partners too - we offer several and are open to creating unique exports if you use a payroll provider that we do not already support. Thanks again for the review, we appreciate your business.

Comments: BuddyPunch has been an amazing tool to have. Being a growing small business, it's been seamless to integrate and has taken a huge workload from my plate. I like that employees have the option of clocking in and out remotely, and I have the accessibility to login anywhere.

Recommendations to other buyers: I'd love an automatic paid holiday option. I recently forgot to add in a paid holiday for my employees...having the ability to set these up automatically would be amazing.

Pros: online can view anywhere from a computer . the app is poor at best and is not integrated to be used as a time clock or to check all features and make adjustments from admin must have a computer to do so

Cons: Most of it

Overall: Several areas of concern. Very little corrections made based on feedback. Not able to contact support by phone. Delayed response in email. Not open to different types and operations for different business types. This is a very baseline product with little features. Menus are hard for older users to read. Not user friendly for most users. Time corrections are difficult for users to complete or request. Very limited on admin ability to control aspects of the clock to prevent user issues. reports decimal place cannot be changed from 3 to 2 decimals increases rounding time for admin. Integration with payroll company cost additional funds.

Recommendations to other buyers: It could be good if feedback was taken in consideration and updates were made more often vs yearly. Not recommended for larger 30+ employees maybe at some point but not at this time!

Josh - Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. Unfortunately many of your comments we believe are inaccurate and I would like to make sure that Buddy Punch is accurately reflected on Capterra. We do not charge for integrations with other Payroll Companies. We just added an integration with Paychex and there was no cost to any customer for doing so. We are also very timely in responding to inquiries. In your case specifically you opened a ticket on 7/29/16 at 3:52 pm. We responded at 4:14 pm the same day with a resolution. You opened a ticket on 8/29/16 at 12:35 pm, we replied at 12:46 pm. You opened a ticket on 9/12/16 at 10:21 am and we replied on 12:46 pm. We offer many features such as GPS, IP Address Lock, Webcam photos on punches, and notifications. We offer easy change requests with the user clicking on a button that says "I need to change something." I'm sorry we didn't work for your business and we will take your feedback into consideration.

Pros: Easy to use. Good amount of features. App is nice for employees on the move.

Cons: Some phones have trouble with the app not allowing them to punch because it thinks their locator is turned off when it's actually on. Some employees would like to be able to add their PTO through the app as well. I would like to see the ability to request PTO in advance, so it can be approved and noted before the pay period.

Overall: We started using Buddy Punch because we have employees who start their work day from their house. Buddy Punch makes it easy to track their time and having the GPS locator allows us to know where they are at.

Pros: I am happy for everything. Though it doesn't have all the features we need, but the staff are ready to entertain all our suggestions.

Cons: Nothing that I can think of. So far, it fills my current payroll needs.

Overall: I was first apprehensive of trying out Buddy Punch. I was so used to traditional punch cards, spending hours reading through each punch card during paydays and calling each employee for verification of blurred printouts and questionable punch-ins. I was used to making my life so difficult. Until I decided to level up because some bundy clock machines bogged down at the office, I began looking for a time card system that would eliminate time fraud from employees ... and make my life easy too. I began to entertain biometric time clocks. But the newest machines are so expensive and still quite laborious on part of the employer who had no human resources department. Until I came through an advertisement from Buddy Punch, this picked up my interest. After a few hours of contemplation, I tried it and boy was I blown off by its features ¿ real-time pics, extensive data of employee activity, payroll data, etc. Even the staff of Buddy Punch are so supportive, inserting few features from a new user like me. I am so impressed! Now for the first time in my 10 years of business, computing payroll has become such a breeze. Thank you very much, Buddy Punch!

Comments: It locks up every now and then and you have to clear the system or create "new" IP addresses for all your employees. Even that gives you an error sometimes. We spend more time clocking employees in and out then the system operating correctly. Changing systems.

Vendor Response

by Buddy Punch on September 15, 2016

Tim - I am sorry, it appears that you are mis-understanding a feature of Buddy Punch. The IP Address Lock will allow you to enter in an IP address and that employee must login from that IP address. Most ISP's will provide you a dynamic IP address, which means it changes from time to time. This is why you have to enter in a new IP address, as your IP address has changed from your ISP. We recommend requesting a static IP address from your ISP so it doesn't change. Once you do that you won't run into this problem. Again I am sorry there was a mis-understanding. Please let us know how else we can help!

Pros: Good design

Easy to use

Intuitive

Focused on employee punching in and out. No gimmicks you have to do, no hoops you have to jump through to get it going.

Cons: People can only be automatically punched out after X hours. Not X and a half or X and a quarter. But you set the X so I got that going for me which is nice.

Overall: Turns out its preetttyyy gooood.

Was looking for an app that helped manage employee punching in/out for small businesses and did a bunch of trials before finding BuddyPunch. The other apps that I found were often not what I was looking for or did not have a focus on employee punch-in/outs.

Found buddypunch and it does exactly what I need it to. The UI is very well designed, the administrator makes employee accounts and employees just go to the website, log in, and push the big green button.

They then log in again to punch out but the big green button will be a big red button this time.
Very simple, very easy, does employee punch-ins, does it well. Also got an IP-Lock feature so employees can only punch in on-site.

There are some other features like wage calculations based on punch-in time, overtime stuff, and other things that I don't use but they seemed pretty useful if I ever choose to use them.

Cons: Wish there were better customization options for hour categories (i.e. floating holidays, Jury Duty, etc.)
App for I phone needs improvement (can only view who is punched in currently)

Overall: I handle HR for a small start-up tech company, and we were looking for a simple, easy-to-use time tracking software solution that was also cost-effective for our size. We found Buddy Punch, and it seemed to offer everything we needed, and it was reasonably priced. We signed up for the trial period, and our employees were impressed immediately. They were able to start recording their time immediately with zero training or assistance, which was a priority for us.
The system is also very easy to use from an administrator end (editing punches, viewing timecards, etc.) Buddy Punch produces concise reports which can assist with transferring employee hours to any payroll system that you may be using. If you do experience any issues or have questions, it's very easy to place a support ticket and a response is usually given within 1-2 hours at the most. Customer Service definitely seems to be a priority which we appreciate.
Once our trial period had concluded, it was a no-brainer to continue with this easy, intuitive solution.

Thank you Courtney for the review! I'm glad Buddy Punch is working out so well for you. Our mobile apps for iOS and Android are very simple to use but the web application is also very easy to navigate as well. We have several sign in options, including Google Single Sign On or SSO, but are always looking for ways to improve. Thanks again!

Pros: I asked my I.T. department to search and find me something I could work with. I needed something that would track employee time and attendance . One main pro was giving us a month to work with the software to see if it was right for us. After two weeks, employees were urging us to sign up!
This software provides clear transparency, everyone knows where they stand and as an employer I can review activity at my leisure from where ever I am . We have been using Buddy Punch now for two months and it has improved employee punctuality and even morale. The data does not lie from a management perspective. My office manager likes it and just sends me the final excel sheet for approval on pay day.

Cons: Sometimes the software does not notify us that an action is awaiting approval .

Overall: Having spent over a year trying to integrate a time and attendance system with our payroll provider with little or no success, we had reverted to signing in and out the old fashioned way as it has been done for the last century.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try, for the money it is well worth the peace of mind, knowing you have legally covered yourself and your company by properly documenting time and attendance.

Pros: Update timecards anywhere, easy to add, remove, update employees, several reports that export easily.

Cons: None

Overall: After using paper time cards for over a year, spending many frustrating hours a week reviewing, verifying, inputting and analyzing employee punches and then finding a place to keep the paper cards for our records, we were fed up. We looked for an affordable and easy to implement solution. We used the Buddy Punch trial and within a week, we knew this was the solution we were looking for. Setting up locations, employees and punch restrictions was extremely easy. The timecard punches can easily be updated by managers from any location. The email notifications keep managers on top of missed punches, and with the variety of exportable reports we have been able to complete labor analysis quickly and accurately. Before we began Buddy Punch, completing a weekly labor analysis would take over an hour and a half. Between contacting the locations to send the timecards, manually entering daily hours, deciphering notes scribbled on the cards and updating labor information for new employees we had enough! Now the process is as simple as logging on, setting the date range, exporting a CSV and migrating the data into an analysis template. What used to take over an hour, takes roughly 20 minutes. Another major perk for our catering department is having the ability to require GPS location for login when employees begin and end off-site. This feature has made labor tracking more accurate and dependable, as we no longer have to rely on the site manager to send email updates about employee punches. The customer support at Buddy Punch is also quick to respond and very informative. I would highly recommend Buddy Punch to businesses looking for an affordable and effective timekeeping solution.

Pros: Love that you can pull an "hours report" and see the hours that each employee worked for any certain amount of time.
Love that it shows the hours and overtimes hours separately and together.
The Reports are easy to access and easy to read.
Love that you can pull the "timecard" and find when each employee clocked in and out per day- easy to keep track.
Love that is keeps GPS to see WHERE each employee clocked in or out when they do so.
Love the PTO portion and that you have the opportunity to export information for Payroll as well!

Cons: We dont use it in full as much as we should- each of the reports that is.

Overall: We just recently started using BuddyPunch and are extremely happy with the ease and functionality of this product. We used to use an excel spreadsheet that was very difficult to read and change the hours. Now technicians can clock in and out as many times a day as they need and if they need to change the time in or out it has to be approved by a manager!

Recommendations to other buyers: Very easy and self explanatory!

Pros: Cloud-based. This was crucial for our business. We are an orthodontic practice with two locations, and we needed a cloud-based solution.

Cons: The iOS app is very basic. The web app is much more useful.

Overall: Set up is a breeze, and our 10 employees have had no problems using the service. I would highly recommend it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use the GPS tagging for check-in and check-out

Pros: It calculates overtime for me.

Overall: Our company was calculating hours using time cards and an excel spreadsheet. It was very clumsy and there was a lot of room for error. Now it just takes me a few minutes to check through everything.

Pros: The most important feature of Buddy Punch is the GPS location. I've tried clocking in and out from different locations to test the accuracy and it's always spot on.

Cons: Some of the reports are a little cluttered, but with so many report options it really hasn't been an issue.

Overall: Buddy Punch has made time keeping a breeze. The mobile app is very user friendly and simple. Customer support responds to any and all questions quickly. Since our company started using Buddy Punch we've had no issues and would recommend to anybody looking for time tracking.

Pros: The user and administrator interfaces are very easy to use and navigate. The settings are very easy to use and customize.

Cons: I do wish that some of the settings were able to be applied to just individual employees (punch rounding, in particular).

Overall: The software and the customer support has been great from the start! A system like Buddy Punch is exactly what every office/business needs. Much more than a time clock, Buddy Punch has all of the features necessary for tracking employees and editing employee times. Definitely makes my job a whole lot easier!

Recommendations to other buyers: This software will save time and money, immediately and in the long run.

Comments: Implementing Buddy Punch was the best thing we did -- saves us money on improper OT calculations, provides the ability to track everyone's productivity easier than before and is just overall a better use of time and technology. I would highly recommend to anyone - the time and money you will save will more than offset the small fee. As for customer service, response time is great and they are always available to assist and answer questions!
