Pros: I like that I can track candidates vetting, availability, bookings, timesheets and invoices all in one place. Also, that I can set reminders for myself and others using the system to ensure full compliance. I can look back at historical data and compare it with current data to look at trends in bookings.

Cons: I would like to be able to track half days easily, at the moment it is easy to track full days but not so easy to add half day (morning or afternoon availability) This would be a great help in the Education field where bookings can be either morning or afternoon.

Overall: The most important aspect of this software is that we can all access information from wherever we are in real time and that more than one user can us the database at the same time.

Very easy to use, brilliant customer support and does everything we require from the system

Pros: We have had the system for 5 months now and I'am very happy with the simplicity of the system, I have worked with a few different systems but Flo is the easiest and quickest to use, we are still finding new things about it today. We all feel producing and editing invoices and how easy it is to create an invoice is very good. The customer service (online chat) is very supportive and there hasn't been an issue that they have not resolved within minutes of asking, All round very impressed with the system so far.

Cons: We feel when the time sheet has been added to the system for our line of business we require to know the hourly pay rate we have put in (not always the same person inputting the hours that created the time sheet) unfortunately the system does not allow this but is not a major issue as we note down the pay rates when putting onto the system and everyone has access to this.

We have also not found (there may be one but we have not accessed this yet) a final spreadsheet of all the time sheets accepted just as a quick check that our time sheets match the inputted time sheet but this has not created a huge issue and also something we have managed to work round.

Overall: Cloud based so can be accessed anywhere

Generally very good, we have had some training recently which was very useful.

Pros: Reasonably user friendly and easy to add users/modify.

Easy to navigate around the features of the site.

Cons: We recently suggested some changes and certain elements that would benefit us as an agency, we are yet to hear back on if these are in the Flo pipeline etc.

Certain compliance items are not acceptable and need to be uploaded under the wrong title.

Personally don't like the side bars hiding when using the website, we prefer them to just be fixed.

Overall: Database, compliance, team use

Excellent piece of software

Pros: Flo allows us as a business to track all of our shifts. Thats one of the most important features for us as a business.

Add in all the other tools and you've got everything you need in one place.

Invoicing, payroll, reporting, compliance, everything you need to manage your agency in

Cons: None that I've found. Flo has everything we need all in one place. Having done a lot of research there is nothing like flo our there

Pros: able to add all the reliant information for our company needs in one place which complies with the data collection legislation.

Cons: would like to be able to open different sections without having to close section. so being able to open in separate box would be really useful but not available currently. I often need to know what shifts they have worked and the compliance details at the same time.

Overall: overall good to use and suitable for our needs

Pros: Creating time sheets and inputting hours couldn't be easier - Flo makes our jobs easier and we get things done quicker.

Changing the consolidation time and day is great especially if you are way ahead or running behind.

Cons: When inputting the hours there is no way of seeing the total pay for the candidates only the clients.

We always double check things and it would be nice to see both at the same time.

Overall: Overall Flo is fantastic for our needs.

What is so great is you can be anywhere and have access on your phone which is an absolute bonus.

Generally Flo is adiquate and easy to use, for what we need at the moment. More features are needed.

Pros: Quite clear, simple and easy to use.

Customer service has been great and very quick and helpful when needed.

We like the SMS message system.

Cons: The layout of the canidiate files can be improved, notes are at the bottom and can be missed when there is mulitiple users.

When creating a new candidate you have to go back into it to add skills etc. It would be better if this was done at the same time.

When searching you can't filter green or red availability, and it is in alphabetical order rather than distance from postcode for example.

Some details have been removed from files in the past for example UTR number have just vanished when they have been added and saved multiple times - we never seemed to get to the bottom of this with customer support.

You can't tell when the last time a candidate is contacted, actually spoken to. Would be good if we could filter candidates by this (most activity on the file)

(These have been features on previous systems I have used previously)

Overall: Unaware of benefits we get from using this software. Sorry

Great Software, easy to use, very secure

Pros: Its very easy to navigate and find what I am looking for, when I need it quickly

Cons: I cannot deactivate more than one person at a time from your system, has to be done one by one.

Pros: The software is only as good as the information in which you input into the system. It stores countless information which we can use to profile our candidates

Cons: The software doesn't allow a 'multi-deactivate' function, so when we are cleaning up our database you have to individually delete each candidate.

Overall: Makes working life a lot easier.

overall good. Could do with a couple of tweeks but our account manager is very good and is helping.

Pros: Ease of use, scalability, client interface. Offers a fantastic online timesheet process for our clients.

Cons: Staff scheduling on Temp Plan - Works well but not flexible in terms of setting up rolling shift patterns. Great if the shift pattern is fixed each week though.

Flo is a very easy to use and easy to manage. Very helpful customer service.

Pros: flo is very easy to navigate through and easy to use. Temp Plan function is very useful which is what we use most.

Cons: Only gripe would be that within the Temp plan search function or even the candidate search by postcode function, it would be ideal to have a map (similar to multimap) with locations of all candidates.

Overall: Very positive, BUT please add a mapping function! otherwise great

Pros: Easy to use and navigate around. Clear and colours that are used are good.

Cons: Not always working properly. Updating availability doesn't always work and checking if candidates are in jobs. Also extra options on main candidate page would be good, ie. showing what class driver they are.

Overall: It is good but can sometimes have a few glitches in the system.

Pros: notes for eligibility to work in the uk, this helps a lot, but probably that's about it

Cons: design, how to input hours, fact that everything has to be done manually. If you put someone as working 0600-1230 but standard template is 8 hours for morning shift, the system is not smart enough to calculate it's 6.5 hours. Also after allocating shift, you have to click to confirm every person, having 350 people every day, it's 350 clicks and page refreshes. Waste of time.

Overall: Poor, we only use it as a data base

I find it very easy to use.

Pros: I like that you can upload all your temp[ workers with their ID's bank details etc.

So easy to upload and find any info you need.

Cons: When booking staff on temp plan you have to individually accept their weekly plan one at a time rather than clicking all highlighted in yellow. This would save a lot more time.

Overall: Easily accessible to find temps details.

Payroll made easier.
