Sometimes a new cloud app comes along that makes us at Vend want to jump out of our chairs and hug someone. There were many hugs given after we found out about Deputy.
Deputy is extraordinary time, attendance and staff rostering software that makes it easy to schedule staff, track their performance, assign tasks and fill a vacant shift. On its own, Deputy is software that can’t be beat, but now that Deputy integrates with Vend it’s a full-on game changer!
Just ask yourself:
1) How often have you walked into your store and found lots of customers and not enough assistants? This often equals poorer customer service and lost sales.
2) Or too many assistants standing around when there aren’t enough customers to justify it? Your business could be burning money.
3) Do you struggle to see staff performance for how much you’re paying them versus how the value of their sales?
Awesomely, the Vend + Deputy integration solves all these problems.
What you get with Vend + Deputy
Deputy pulls historical sales data straight from Vend into their Scheduling snapshot and keeps it updated in real-time, giving you a clear indication on how your sales perform daily vs how you’re scheduling staff.
Deputy’s Roster VS Timesheet Report overlays with Vend’s sales per staff member info, allowing you to drill down into staff performance data. This allows you to calculate sales bonuses as well as see sales effectiveness. As Deputy is rostering with time & attendance (as opposed to separate products), you can see real-time data on:
– How you planned
– How you executed
– How you performed
Deputy also provides weather forecasting and Vend sales trends, so you can optimise your team scheduling for any situation that pops up.
