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 2018/07/09

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!

BP has been extremely accessible for customer service and have been open to suggestions for improvements/additional services. They have steadily grown over the last several years, offering more and more helpful services and integration with other programs. BP was also extremely accommodating during Covid shutdowns, allowing us to freeze our account in good faith that we would pick up where we left off as soon as we were able.

Pros

Very easy for employees and administrators alike to track time and edit if necessary. Provides accountability for our employees with the location settings such as GPS/Geofence. Provides a variety of reports that are helpful. Provides our employees with mobility--we can send them to any job site, and they have the ability to punch in/out.

Cons

Would like a report that provides a daily snapshot, chronologically, of who punched in/out and at what time. If this exact report exists, I have not been able to find it.

Reviewed on 2018/05/05

Pros

It makes it easy for me to view and edit time cards as needed. I also like how I can create different categories for employees to clock in under.

Cons

My employees have a terrible time with Buddy Punch. The app does not work on a couple of their phones. When they do punch in on the computer, the buttons don't function like they're supposed to. For instance, they try to punch in and edit time, but it just punches them in and doesn't allow them to edit their time. It has also automatically punched an employee out five minutes after punching in (they did not punch out).

Response from Buddy Punch

Hello Sean, I'm glad that we've been easy for you to use. I'm sorry to hear that your employees are having problems but thank you for the feedback. We have 2 features that will automatically punch an employee out. We can split shifts at midnight, which keeps time within each day, and we have a maximum hour in a shift. This will automatically punch an employee out as well. Sorry for any confusion on these features. We appreciate your business.

Pros

We like that its easy to use and very convenient. It's nice to be able to pull time & take time off, from the use of your mobile phone.

Cons

I don't like the pop-ups. When you try to go into the settings, it's hard to navigate what you can control on the pop-up messages.

We have only been using this software since 1-1-2022 and for the most part it have been very useful for everything that I have need it to do for me. If we need help or have a question [SENSITIVE CONTENT] has been able to reach out to our contact person and they have been very helpful.

Pros

I can see at any point and time when an employee punchedin or out daily, payroll period, monthly total hours etc.

Cons

I really wish under reports that I can pull a report such as when did each employee start working for the company. To be able to pull a report showing each employee with other HIS reporting information that is used for various information

Reasons for Choosing Buddy Punch

Out dated and we were using a couple different systems to do what we can with Buddy Punch. Your software was very user friendly and easy to learn and set up.

Reasons for Switching to Buddy Punch

we looked at 4 other systems as well. I have personally worked with ADP Workforce(would not work for our needs), WorkDay (not user friendly), ADP could not track driver and other projects that we were looking for. You gave the option of several ways of tracking our field employees if need be such and satellite per stop, per driver etc.

Response from Buddy Punch

Thank you for the review Wendy, it is great to hear that you're finding us helpful and useful. We appreciate the 10 out of 10 rating and your business!
