Hourly workers are the backbone of our economy. In 2017, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics reported hourly workers comprised more than 60% of the workforce in the United States, and on a global scale, the estimate is 80-90%. Still, there is a stark lack of enterprise software tools that directly address these workers’ vital everyday needs. Shift scheduling and other communication are relegated to pen and paper or whiteboards, while time is tracked through punch clocks and basic spreadsheets. Millions of workers are clamoring for modern, easy-to-use SaaS solutions that bring the mundane tasks associated with work and scheduling into the modern world.
Thankfully, there’s Deputy. By providing a single, convenient application to handle shift scheduling, timesheets, tasking and communication, Deputy is simplifying the lives of all employees. During diligence, one user literally cried tears of joy telling us she had gained more control over her schedule, enabling her to spend less time commuting for short shifts and more time with her family. Deputy already has a history of success with massive enterprises like McDonald’s and Amazon, but we know they’ve only just scratched the surface of what they can achieve.
