Deputy has made our rostering, timesheet and payroll systems not only more effecient but has also reduced the amount of mindfulness required to achieve a good result. A big part of this is the easy to use and very functional integration with Xero. Thanks Deputy :-)

The trouble I am having is when you have multiple location Xero and Deputy isn't capable of handling more than 2 locations at one time. Can this be fixed?

I also have some issue previously with payrate not syncing with each other ... solutions? I don't know...

Otherwise ... deputy has been wonderful .. :)

Has made collecting time sheets simpler, but some features that need work/development
- leave - employees need to be able to enter days as leave days with an approval proceed that is after the event (not before - in the real world people don't always document/ record leave approvals formally before the leave is taken, particularly for sick/personal leave)
- time in lieu - no effective process for recording time in lieu accrual rather than paying overtime
- administrator is not necessarily an employee, may be an advisor, so we don't want to set them up in xero as an employee
- award interpretations, need better/more detailed system for interpreting overtime provisions, overtime or other activity allowances, ability to add or reallocate items where employees are temporarily working in a different role

What was a four hour per week manual entry nightmare is now a 4 minute, full integrated dream. The cost of Deputy is negligible in comparison with the time saved and the increased accuracy that comes from having data imported verbatim.
The best, greatest time saving app we run in conjunction with Xero.
Also, the CEOs videos on the website are probably the greatest intro to a piece of software of all time. Awesome to see a forward thinking company that does things with a sense of humour.
We've recommended the system and the integration to every hospitality operator we know.

Deputy's integration with Xero enabled a major shift in my business. I am now able to manage my own payroll, save time through elimination of duplicate data entry of employee timesheets and improved accuracy.

I would recommend the Deputy <--->Xero integration for any small business looking for efficiency and ease of doing business.

Deputy has given us the ability to focus on our key strengths - our high quality care and responsiveness to our client's needs - knowing that the 'back end' and detail is taken care of in a way we are thrilled with.

The Deputy/Xero integration has saved us huge amounts of time and money and we couldn't be happier, as we continue to refine the way the two systems 'speak' to each other.

Deputy is an amazing product with fabulous and responsive support. They have been working with us to enable the integration with Xero to work seamlessly.

Hi - the integration has been great and saves a lot of time.
Improvements could be made around overtime provisions. I have to manually go into the Xero timesheet and change an employees time sheet to reflect overtime worked.
It would also be good to integrate leave taken with the Xero records. At the moment I have to go into Xero and manually enter leave through the employees file

We have been using Deputy in conjunction with Xero from the 1st of July 2014. The support we have received from Deputy has been fantastic, they are there immediately and have been able to fix things in the background that might have taken us a good amount of time to do. Thank you Deputy team for your continued support great job.
