“Saved me tons of time and energy.”

OverallI have saved a lot of time especially from the previous system which was Excel based and very time consuming to enter daily. Now the burden is on the employee to notify me about a holiday or sick day. I can of course add one myself on their behalf if needed.
ProsI like the ease of use for both me as the admin and for my employees. I have added categories, ie. training & trade shows, that I did not initially think about being a part of this solution. I like the tracking feature for verification and that I can print a report in minutes. Nice to look at other employees that are off on the same day and I have the bigger picture.
ConsIt took me a little bit longer to setup than I expected. Not because it was difficult but I had to understand the logic behind the settings. For example I initially gave all employees 10 vacation days with the start date the same as the first of the new year. Then on the new year it gave them 10 more as it should have but I didn't realize it gave all my staff 20 days. I would like to have a feature for anniversary reminders since that info is already there and it is a good time to celebrate and review my employees. Wish there was a monthly calendar view.

“This app is perfect for our small school. It totally reduced the need for paper forms.”

OverallEfficiency. Reduction of time needed to keep up with paper forms. The wall chart allows for all employees to see who is off and when.
ProsVery, very easy to use. The app is easy to navigate and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Our employees who are not as computer literate have no problem using this app.
ConsThere are no cons at this time. This app truly fits our need. In fact when we first started we needed an earlier start time to the day (since we are a school, we start at 7:30) to make the hours work for us well and Bindle's customer service was quick to meet our need by adding the earlier start time.

By Bindle Software on July 5, 2018

“I have been very satisfied using this program both as a user and administrator.”

ProsThe program is easy to use and encompasses a number of features that we wanted. We like the ability of recording half days, a feature a process not easily accomplished in our old program.
ConsI would like only the current years requests and time off to show in the program. I would also like to be able to customize our Holiday schedule without having to contact customer support.

“Easy to use, user friendly and nothing complicated about it! ”

Overall- Reduced emails to manage leave - Ability to import existing data (leave hours/days) - Ability to import leave dates into Microsoft Outlook calendar (we love this feature!) - Accessible information to all staff
ProsWhen we were searching for a Leave Mgt Tool, we had straightforward needs and didn't need the bells and whistles that other Payroll/HR systems offer. We trialled Bindle and quickly realised how clean the user interface was and how simple Bindle was to use. The team didn't need training to use it! We love that it can import into Microsoft Outlook so management can easily view who is on leave etc. In addition, Bindle is flexible enough to handle both contractors and salaried employees leave.
ConsThe only small thing was that the software wasn't set up a year or two in advance which lead to some confusion when applying for leave. Eg. NSW holidays wasn't set up yet for 2018. This was only a small issue and quickly rectified by the Bindle team :)

“Great service to manage PTO for our Smallish staff”

OverallEasy to use. Simple for staff to request time. Quick in and out don't need a ton of extra steps. Visibility into who else has time of to ensure you're not stretched to thin staffing wise.
ProsEasy to use and see who all has requested time off on the same day as the current request. Makes it simple to manage multiple employee's PTO requests. If you don't have the PTO management baked into your payroll or HR system I'd highly recommend this tool
ConsTo approve the PTO request you have to log into the system rather than just replying to the request email with your approval or disapproval. Also doesn't allow you to manage different accrual rates for staff so we had to manage that separately.

Vendor Response

By Bindle Software on October 24, 2017
Hi Allen - Thanks for the great review. Glad to hear that Bindle is something you'd highly recommend and that it's simple for staff to use. Bindle is really good at maintaining different accrual rates for staff, so we'll follow up to find out why you are managing that separately. Thanks again Allen!

“Bindle is Beaut”

OverallBindle is great - it has freed up a lot of my time and made managing staff leave much easier (and reduced paperwork significantly). Damian has been of great assistance getting me set up and assisting with items that weren't so straightforward. Thanks Bindle!!!! I can highly recommend :)
ProsEasy - love the email system
ConsThe fact that leave can only be taken in half day blocks. Would be great if you could nominate hours/minutes of leave.

Thanks so much Jo for your kind words. We're glad that we're helping reduce your paperwork a bit. Makes us quite happy actually! Edit: 15th March 2017 - We're listening! We've now released the ability to book just a few hours off.

“Bindle review”

OverallIt is tracking our time off and holidays in an easy to find and update package. After the initial setup the only thing we need to do to maintain it is to remember to add our time off when necessary. We're just a small team, so we don't use this for resource management, but rather just a place to store everyone's time off and holidays owed.
ProsAuto adjusts balances for time off and holidays
ConsAs part of the onboarding i would have rather been presented with a calendar to manually select/enter the time off and start dates and let bindle calculate the starting balances, rather than having to work out the starting balances and enter it. Or importing an excel or google calendar would have been nice too. I still find some of the terminology confusing and could be written more colloquially, and sick leave is called personal leave, which doesn't strike me as the same thing.

Vendor Response

By Bindle Software on June 18, 2019
Hi Kieran, Thanks for your feedback. Glad to hear you are getting good value out of Bindle. We do allow (in fact encourage) people to send us their data in Excel add allow us to bulk upload it. It seems like we might not be making this clear enough. If youv'e got more people to add then get in touch - we'd love to help. The term Personal Leave seems to be in more common use than Sick Leave now, but if you prefer Sick Leave you can change the name in the Admin section.

ProsSimple to understand and easy enough to use
ConsNo calendar function. This seems crazy to me for software that is based around dates

Vendor Response

By Bindle Software on November 13, 2018
Hi Ben - Thanks for taking the time to give Bindle a review. However, we find your review a little contradictory and slightly confusing. You say Bindle is "easy enough to use", yet you give us 1-star for "Ease of Use"? Reminds me a bit of one of those parody Amazon reviews, "Monsters Inc. 1-star. Too many monsters!" ;) Anyway moving on... Bindle already comes with a built-in Wallchart, which is basically a vertical calendar (of sorts). In addition, you can connect Bindle to the calendar you already use (like Outlook, Google, or Apple Calendar) to see everything in there. Perhaps you're after another way to view what's happening in Bindle? Our "5-star" customer support team is going to reach out to find out a bit more about what you mean. You're obviously frustrated enough about it to take time to write this review, so something is amiss. Thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts and we'll be reaching out shortly.

“Fantastic & easy to use!”

OverallThis tool has been fantastic! I would recommend to small-medium sized businesses. The customer support I have received from the Bindle team is quick and very helpful also. They ask and LISTEN to feedback. Thanks Bindle Team! :)
ProsBindle is a very simple, intuitive platform to use. We are a start-up business of now 30 employees across 3 different business groups. This system is quite generic so it allows us to customise it to what we require for each business and across various countries including Australia, US and Netherlands. Fun, casual user feel and look.
ConsTracking Time Off In Lieu can be difficult to manage.

“Very large company using it ”

OverallWe've enjoy it
ProsPrice, easy to teach and use, easy setup and company helps assist. Nice dashboard, reporting
ConsCannot assigns more than 1 person to approve, so if someone is on vacation, items need to be manually switched. Would like to assign heirchy of approved. Also would like to move people from one area or region to another in bulk- not one by one

“User-Friendly PTO Tracking Software that Provides Peace of Mind”

OverallGreat. Communicative customer support and a streamlined, user-friendly interface that meets all of our PTO tracking needs.
ProsI love that Bindle organizes all of our PTO tracking in one location. It is highly customizable and works with all of our company time off policies. It allows us to easily resolve employee questions and concerns by referring to the captured data. Data entry and report creation is easy and very fast. If I ever have any questions, Bindle customer support responds promptly with detailed information. I can 100% count on this software and company with our PTO needs.
ConsWhile viewing and booking employee time is super user-friendly, the initial set up on the back end was a bit confusing. However, Bindle customer support is awesome and walked me through all of my questions.

“Individuals are more accountable, info is more accurate, processing payroll is much more efficient. ”

OverallEfficient time off management for team of about 15 people in a busy office.
ProsHaving a centralised place for all staff leave requests which is more efficient, reduces human error, saves paper and time. Clear summary on Wallchart which can be viewed in Outlook alongside other calendars.
ConsHours can't be customised as required. Need 15 minute intervals, eg. to show that a staff member is out of office for the day on personal or annual leave, but does 45 minutes work from home.

“Simple and effective product that is worth the low cost”

OverallGreat, the customer service is great and the price is fair for the basic and effective product.
ProsWe needed a basic tool to track vacation time without a ton of bells and whistles. This had exactly what we needed by integrating directly to our google calendar and is simple to use.
ConsI wish I could access the google calendar from the bindle website. One time I couldn't figure out how to add a request to the company calendar and I had to go back to the original request email and click the add to calendar button. It would be nice to be able to add to the calendar from Bindle.

“Great software, easy to use.”

OverallThe online portal has a nice clean design, that is easy to navigate and use. The functionality is very good without being over complicated at all. Very user friendly.
ProsUser friendly, not over complicated options. Clean page design, not overly busy pages that overwhelm.
ConsOnly minor things: 1) the balance check could be a bit better if it let you select both the month and the year before it refreshed. 2) the wallchart would look better if it look like a normal calendar rather than a list of dates. You'd be able to see more on one page.

“Simple, Easy, and Great Value”

ProsWe love this software. It's super easy to use (both as an administrator and as a user), and the value:cost ratio is fantastic. The Slack integration keeps everyone in the loop (definitely one of our favourite features as an organization).
ConsNo issues - it does everything we need it to. This is a simple solution that addresses a market need without trying to be an enterprise offering with a ton of bells and whistles we'll never use (or the pricetag that goes along with that).

“My file cabinet is clean”

OverallHaving a fast efficient way to track vacation days has been a BIG time saver for us. No more paper copies or lost requests.
ProsThere are no more paper vacation requests cluttering up my file cabinet since the start of the new year! Its a great, quick way to handle vacation requests.
ConsI would like to see a month by month calendar instead of the way it is broken down right now. It's not bad but would be nice to log on and see a calendar page of the current month. You have to set up and utilize a separate software to notify other staff if an employee is going to be gone. It would be convenient once the vacation day is approved to have a mass email go out alerting other employees of what staff member will be gone and when.

By Bindle Software on March 12, 2019
Hi Todd, Thanks for your kind words. Did you know there is an option in Bindle to CC all leave approvals to any email address you like. Maybe this will provide the alert to all employees you are looking for? If you need any help just email us at support@bindle.io. Thanks again. Howard

“Time off tracker ”

OverallBindle has allowed us to keep track of all the employees time off. Before Bindle we didn't have a good system for tracking time off. I would recommend it for tracking time off.
ProsEasy to use and simple layout. It allows us to keep track of employees time off. The various time off categories are very helpful. I like that we can customize it to our needs.
ConsWe have employees whose days off change. There is no easy way to adjust that for their vacation and other time off.

“The implementation and use of this product has been a great asset in the management of staff leave.”

OverallA quicker process for staff to apply for and get approval for their leave, less errors in their applications and staff know very quickly where they stand as to what leave they have available to them.
ProsThe ease of use for staff to see what leave they have, apply for leave and for managers to approve. The ability for reception to easily see who is on leave. The clear and simple format makes for ease of use. For payroll it is easy to know what leave has been taken to facilitate processing. Bindle has been very responsive with queries . Our staff have responded favourably to the product
ConsFrom the wallchart it is not easy to see why people are away, every type of leave shows up with the same colour.

“Great product. Has simplified leave tracking for us and saved us heaps of time.”

ProsSimple and intuitive. Easy to use and to customise. Linking to calendar is great. I don't have anything more to say but there is a minimum character limit which is really annoying.

“Very intuitive software”

ProsI find it easy to use and understand. This is significant as I am not particularly a 'techie' type. I particularly like being able to see the organization's calendar before I approve a vacation, which helps in making a decision.
ConsIt would be great to have this interface with Outlook calendar. When I approved vacation time it would be nice to have this show up on Outlook. I still have to do this manually in order to keep track of when people in my department will be gone.

Hi Martha - Thanks for the 5 star review! So it turns out you can already see Bindle bookings in Outlook! All you need to do is log in to Bindle, go to the Wallchart, and click on the link at the very bottom called "View the Wallchart in your own calendar". Presto! Now Outlook will automatically contain all your Bindle bookings. Here's a blog article all about it.... https://www.bindle.io/blog/calendar-feed Thanks again!

“Easy to use”

ProsBindle is a very easy and pleasant to use tool. It helps really great for small and middle companies to track their PTOs. The logic and interface of the system is very easy, allows to make reports for your internal analytics. Support team is responsive and is ready to implement almost all features their clients offer. Platform has very useful integrations, as with Slack. The more concise the tool, the better.
ConsThe wallchart and internal calendars should be improved. General functionality has to offer more custom settings on variaty of internal companies' policies.

Thanks for your review Inna. We tried hard to make Bindle a very easy and pleasant tool to use, so it's great to hear that it is! As you know, we're also continually improving Bindle and your comments here will definitely feed into that. Thanks again!

“Great Solution for Small Business and Easy Implementation”

ProsIt works. I found this when searching for a solution for tracking PTO for my management team. There are a lot of solutions out there, but some are really cumbersome or have more features that anyone would ever need. This is a solid, cheap and cheerful solution.
ConsI do wish they allowed editing for holidays within the app. The support team is very helpful if you send them what you need, but wish I didn't have to ask.

“Great attendance software for the money”

OverallBy using Bindle, we have cut down on the amount of paper use in our attendance process. It also saves time for both requesting time off and approving it.
ProsThis product is easy to administer and use. The app is great to use as well. We have just been using it since the beginning of the year and I have only heard positive things from our employees.
ConsThe one thing that I don't like is switching between days and hours when looking at balances & bookings. We have one type of PTO that is by the day and another that is by the hour. It would be nice to be able to use different timing by the category.

ProsSimple and quick to use. Features a good amount of customisation options without being too complex
ConsIt would be good to have more customisable reports, or more feature-rich APIs so we can create our own reports and integrations.

“Fairly straight forward to use”

OverallWould like to be able to view more of the calendar at once. i.e change to a monthly view or yearly for a quick over view.

Vendor Response

By Bindle Software on May 31, 2016
Hi Sharron - Thanks for taking the time to give us a review. Great feedback. We'll be looking into perhaps introducing an infinite scroll and a quick overview to the Wallchart calendar some point soon. In the meantime, the Bindle Wallchart can be viewed in the calendar software you probably already use (e.g. Google Calendar, Outlook, or Apple Calendar). I think this will give you the exact views you're after. All you need to do is click the link at the bottom of the Wallchart page in Bindle. If you need assistance, just email us at support@bindle.io. We're really happy to help. Once again, thanks so much for taking the time to review Bindle! - Damien

“Love the UI and having a constant source to check my PTO balance.”

ProsThe UI. Simple and relatively easy to use. Love the feature that allows me to see my colleague's PTO.
ConsI wish it integrated more easily with our time tracking software or made communication between colleagues more simple. For example, at the moment my Bindle PTO balance is incorrect, but I have no way of communication this to my colleague within their platform.

Vendor Response

By Bindle Software on December 15, 2017
Hi mystery reviewer! Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on Bindle. Can you reach out to us at support@bindle.io so we can help your Admin find out why your Bindle balance is incorrect? We're sure we can help to figure out any adjustments you might need. P.S. We're not so sure about adding extra communication mechanisms into Bindle itself per se, but thanks for the suggestion!

ProsThe software is very user friendly, easy for both administrators and employees to use. Would definitely recommend to others.

“Good. Easy to use. Wish there were a few more options for WFH employees.”

OverallTracking of employees out of the office as well as my own vac. time used.
ProsIt is a very easy to use program. I also like the dashboard so you can see who is out that day and who is not to plan accordingly for the day.
ConsNo enough info to chose from - need work from home options. It would be nice to show who is working from home and when as well as have it approved by management.

“Nice and easy to use”

OverallBindle solves the issue of manually tracking of leave bookings! Team members would email request off and they would get lost. We never had visibility of balances and who else is off at the same time. Bindle solves this! Pros - Easy to use UI - The wall chart is a great way to see who is off when processing a request - Reminders for when I forget to approve a request - Great for visibility of who has what leave accrued - My team members actually use it! Cons - It would be good to have extra workflow steps after approval of requests

“Great software to keep up with staff holidays”

OverallIf works fine, simple to use, amazing customer support.
ProsVery easy to use, with many options. Bindle connects to other calendars, so you can see your staff days' off in your usual calendar. The Bindle guys are very helpful, we were missing a feature once and it was implemented within hours!
ConsWe need a calendar view, the wallchart is just not what your eyes are used to. Also at holiday booking a calendar option would be more user friendly than the drop down of dates.

ProsEasy to set up and easy to use. Makes tracking everyone's time off so much simpler. When I had questions during set up, Customer Service was kind and quick to respond. We are a church, so the fact that you can customize types of time off is great for us because ministry trips don't count against vacation time.
ConsI really can't say anything negative about Bindle. We haven't had any issues. It's super easy to use. It's a great product!

Vendor Response

Hi Lisa. Thanks so much for your review. Hmm. Not sure what you mean about adjusting the length of time taken. Using Bindle you're able to book 2 hours off. You're also able to amend any booking in Bindle if you need to take more or less time. If you're a Bindle admin you can also manually adjust people's balances by any amount. We'll follow up separately to go through all this with you.

“My colleagues can see my leave request??”

OverallThis is a great little program for very small businesses representing good value for money but I have noticed that all my colleagues (I am an employee) can see my leave and I can see theirs. I would have thought it obvious that the functionality of the program should prevent this kind of breach of privacy. This issue needs to be addressed for the program to be taken more seriously.

Vendor Response

By Bindle Software on February 22, 2017
Hi Andrew. Damien here from Bindle. Thanks for your review! We take your privacy very seriously. Within Bindle, the ability to see when colleagues are taking time off occurs very much by design. It allows you to plan your requests for time off a whole lot better. We're careful not to show your colleagues anything (like private messages between you and your manager) that we consider to be a breach of privacy. I'd like to reach out to you personally to talk through your concerns and how we can address them by better matching your expectations. Again, thanks Andrew for taking the time to share your thoughts!

“Beautiful user focussed design”

ProsThe design is simple and user friendly. It is easy for our staff to use. It is very aesthetically pleasing.
ConsIt would be great if it would integrate with the payroll system I use. If it could tell me a leave balance up to the minute that would be good too "0.78 days of leave earned." I work with a lot of older staff, and someone using a lot of sick leave at the moment, they are finding it a bit tricky to use.

“Good software to organize employee's time off”

ProsBindle is relatively easy to use. It has given our organization the ability to store all employee days off in one place that is accessible by both the users and managers. We like it!

“I find bindle very easy to use to book in days off for myself as well as my staff. ”

Overall I am quite happy with this software. I also like that you can book in half days and opt to have leave with no pay.
