About Buddy Punch

Buddy Punch was built out of a need for a simple, easy to use, and affordable scheduling and time card solution. We can't use paper forever - and time shouldn't be kept in excel spreadsheets or handwritten/faxed time cards.

If you can't be in front of your employees all the time you need a way to keep them honest about what time they're working. How often does an 8:00am start time actually turn into 8:07am? Multiply that by weeks and years, and your employees are stealing a lot of time. Keep them honest and gain some piece of mind.

Offering iOS and Android apps, drag and drop functionality, automatic overtime calculations, exports, and integrations with top payroll companies.

It's simple, effective, and intuitive.


Key benefits of Buddy Punch

Simplicity. We've tested our app with real users and they required no training to be effective. Error handling is built in - we're human and we all make mistakes, our app helps your employees fix them and automatically notifies you. Not only is the app intuitive but security is a top priority. Not only is your information encrypted but if your computer has a webcam it can be used to take snapshots of each punch, to verify that your employees are actually there and doing the punching.

Buddy Punch can be used on any internet connected device. We're a web based solution, nothing to download, install, or update.

Buddy -punch gives us the value we seek.

Reviewed on 09/07/2018

Pros

Intuitive ,and a much cheaper option than Toggle which we have tried in the past ,and they completely avoided the per user billing system,which I find very ridiculous.
Buddy-punch provides my team with an easy to use clock based punch in/punch out time management application, which didn't require a fingerprint scanner and still works. Buddy-punch has generally given us value for our money.

Cons

Anytime our employees have failed to sign in , they get multiple email notifications which some have found to be very pestering.

Response from Buddy Punch

Thank you Ifeoma for the review! I appreciate the 10/10 rating and it's great to hear that we're giving you great value! You are correct, we do not have per user pricing, so you do not have to be concerned with thinking about increased costs when you add a new user. We appreciate your business!

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.

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

Response from Buddy Punch

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.

Easy to use! It is easy to edit! And it does not require a lot of training to use!
