Most Valuable APP for SMB Ever

5 2 years ago

Comments: Our company utilizes employees here in the US, and numerous remote employees in the Philippines (less than 20 employees). We had one solution for scheduling, another program for task and project management, another app for messaging, and a cloud-based program for time-tracking. Until we found ConnectTeam. Everything we needed (plus more), all in a single solution. Not only did we cut our previous costs by 80%, everything is now in a single solution.

Pros:

- Only add the functions you want. Not encumbered by bloatware or features we will never us. - EXTREMELY intuitive. Once create an account, do the 5 minute walkthrough and you feel confident enough to manage yoir company. - Their FREE option is actually very useful and includes 80% of the features. - FLAT-FEE pricing! Once you decide to upgrade (we chose $29 plan) No 'per-user' cost like virtually every other solution. One flat-fee and can add up to 200 users with no hidden fees. - 24/7 live support; even for the free account! When we first got started, we had a couple hiccups, and at 1:30am, their live support spent over an hour helping us get everything working perfectly (thanks again Noam). - Supports overseas employees in other countries natively. E.g. we have employees in Philippines, and the installed the app and verified their phone numbers via text on their Philippines phone with no issue. Can text-message filipino worked through app, even on free mode. - Messaging/chat options are way better than other messaging apps. Like 'voice' chat, and the ability to integrate other formats. Supports rich text. Take FB messenger, Sling, and viber and combine all the good features, and this is what you have. - GPS tracking of all remote employees.

Cons:

- At the time of writing this review, all admin features have to be done through website, and not through the app (though they say they are working on that). - Could use more hierarchy fratures, other than just basic. Would be nice to see customizable permissions for Administrators (may support but I didn't see). - App only supports Android and iPhone. No desktop app for Windows or Mac available.

Alternatives Considered: 7shifts, Sling, QuickBooks Time and Trello

Reasons for Choosing Connecteam: We used TSheets, 7Shifts, Sling, and Trello for everything we needed. Now we have combined everything we needed in a single solution- ConnectTeam.

Switched From: QuickBooks Time

Reasons for Switching to Connecteam: Save money. Everything in one application. 24/7 live support.

Great software would recommend

4 4 weeks ago New

Comments: I'm generally happy with it - the customer service is great.

Pros:

The employee scheduling is so easy to use, it's a really intuitive design and you can implement it and get employees on boarded so quick with it

Cons:

I dislike that I can't book 1-2-1 sessions for employees - a live timetable I can send front end to customers so they can book my employees out per session. Would be a great add. It's also not cheap price wise.

Alternatives Considered: When I Work and SimplyBook.me

Reasons for Switching to Connecteam: I felt like it offered the best overall service when i used the free trial

Thank you so much for your review, Harry! It's great to know that you find Connecteam to be simple to use both for you and for your employees and that you're happy with our customer service :) Although Connecteam is an employee management tool, we already talk internally about adding capabilities for the business' customers to book their meetings directly in the schedule, so that's definitely something to look forward to in the future :) If you have any more feedback for us or would like to suggest an improvement, please reach out to us at [email protected] at any time :) Thanks again!

User-friendly software with many features, but needs improvements around scheduling & time clock

2 last month New

Comments: We have been using the software for about 8 month now. Some problems have been resolved. A huge improvement was around open shifts. That feature was basically unworkable until a few months ago. However, no improvement in core functionality of job scheduling and time clock since then.

Pros:

We mainly use software for job scheduling and time clock. Pros: It is easy to create a job and a shift Easy to add an employee Job scheduling views are good Training module (courses) has been useful

Cons:

The more employees and jobs you add, the slower it gets for admin users The jobs schedule opens slow on mobile phones The app users a lot of RAM memory on desktops If you have many shifts in the schedule, the app may start freezing The company often focuses on getting some minor features rather than improving their core elements, such as Job Schedule and Time Clock Not easy to go through Time Clock entries as the hours in Job Schedule are not shown. They claim that Time Clock and Job Schedule are synced, but sync only works for mobile users to clock in and out. There is no sync for admin users, who are checking the entries! Chat feature is undeveloped. It is easy to send information to staff, but it is not possible for field staff to have 1 clear communication channel. The job schedule shows names of the person, who created a job, so field staff have multiple conversation about various jobs, rather than have 1 point of contact. If the person who created the job is away, there is no way to see the message. So software creates a communication nightmare for admin and for field staff as well.

Alternatives Considered: SMART Software, TimeGate and Ezitracker

Reasons for Switching to Connecteam: It seems easier to use

Thanks for the feedback, Michael. First, it sounds like you're experiencing some technical issues. Things should not load slow or freeze. The best we can suggest is to contact us so we can investigate your issues and have them resolved. As for the schedule and time clock sync, there might be a misunderstanding or unfulfilled expectations here, and we'd like to clarify: the sync doesn't mean that any scheduled shift will automatically create a time entry in a schedule. The schedule lets users know what they need to do, when and from where, but they must clock in and out for those entries to show in their timesheets. As for the chat - what's missing for you that you feel it's undeveloped? As for employees seeing who created a shift - that's 100% to your control as an admin. Simply remove this option from the scheduling settings menu. Would like to connect with us so we can see what can be done to assist you? Please email me personally at [email protected] :) Thanks!

Explore the features they are gems

5 3 months ago

Comments: I am getting the forms and documents I need from the field. They were using paper forms before this and would lose them, forget them...bottom line we would never get them in the office. Getting the documentation keeps us OSHA compliant and helps us with unemployment claims if we had a legit reason to terminate someone. Also, I cannot stress enough, their support is fabulous. I scheduled a training online and the rep that helped me, [SENSITIVE CONTENT], was phenomenal! She continues to reach out and offer to help. She showed me all of the extra features that I really did not anticipate using and I am so glad she did.

Pros:

I love the ease of implementation. The software automatically sent invites to the users to download the app. The form creator gives so many options to use forms already created or to create one of your own. The forms are simple and can be signed from a mobile phone. Signatures are critical for documentation of training, write ups, injury reports etc.

Cons:

Unless a user purchases the expert version there are limits to the number of jobsites you can use GPS tracking on. With the level that we have we are limited to 10 jobs. I would be much happier with the ability to have 15 to 20 without having to upgrade. We are working with the limits of 10 for now because there really is a large jump in price.

Amazing review, Karen! Thank you so much! It's great to hear Connecteam helps you better manage your business and team, save time, and automate day-to-day workflows. As for the capabilities you're looking to have in your plan without upgrading again, the best would be to communicate that to your Customer Success Manager at Connecteam and ask if there's something that can be done to help :) Thanks again for your positive detailed review!!

Highly Recommend, this program can grow with you and for you.

4 2 months ago New

Comments: Overall the Connecteam team was very helpful. We took a lot of time before deciding to invest our time into this software to take it company wide. We had several zoom calls and emails back and forth asking questions about the features we required. Most of these features were included, in the process, or on the list to be added which we really liked.

Pros:

Once you get the hang of navigating the software, learning what does what and what affects what, it makes scheduling and timeclock tracking efficient. It does take some time getting used to (as does learning any new system) but overall, we are happy with how it has made payroll and scheduling more uniform for our company.

Cons:

The most common issue we run into is the Kiosk app. Some users refuse to use the app on their phone (perfectly fine with us, we give all employees the option). When they use the kiosk, we have glitches every now and then that are very difficult to duplicate to therefore get assistance. We are certain some errors are a mix of the tablet fault and Kiosk faults. The Kiosk is used everyday at several locations.

Thank you so much for recommending Connecteam, Maddy! It's great to hear you are able to grow and scale with Connecteam and find it useful and easy to use. As for technical issues with the Kiosk app, our team always tries to help and resolve issues when needed, but as you mentioned, if they are hard to replicate and don't always happen, it is more difficult to understand what to fix :) That said, stability improvements that are being released regularly may be helpful! Either way, we're always here to help with anything, so please don't hesitate to reach out! Thanks again for your review :)
