Deputy is the ultimate employee management tool, connecting businesses and employees seamlessly through technology.

By simplifying rostering, timesheets, tasks, award interpretation as well as managing new hire onboarding, staff communication and engagement, Deputy is trusted by over 300,000 workplaces as their workforce management software.

Connecting Deputy and Xero saves you hours of business admin time. Employee information can be added in just minutes from Xero, and every pay day timesheet data can be exported straight into Xero, ready to complete a payrun, saving you from time consuming double entry of data.

Xero users can also take advantage of Deputy's in depth pay rate management, allowing you to configure pay rates per area of work, and offering award interpretation based on many of the Australian awards published by Fairwork Australia.

Zero data integrity in connector

The product as a whole is reasonable, but seriously lacking in data integrity between it and other apps. Unwilling to admit that the connectors have issues or provide any substantive support around their product.

Slow Support

Our company has been using Deputy for the past 4 years. Unfortunately we cannot book any refresher trwing for our HR Team and are now considering moving our roster system to a new provider.

fees and updates

we've been running the software for sometime now, about 3 years - the latest issue is changing every feature to a subscription, this will increase our annual software cost for deputy by $576 AUD. A feature we didn't ask for, a cost we cant avoid without hassle. I don't have suggestions as to where to look for a new program but we are certainly looking.

Response from Deputy

Hi Matt, Thank you for your feedback. We understand that unexpected changes can be frustrating! This new and completely optional Deputy HR add-on provides you with improved tools, including Documents and Hire/ATS offerings. Rather than a one-time onboarding action, you will now be able to maintain and update ongoing documentation for your employees. Additionally, you can hire new talent via the Deputy Hire platform and have employees interview and onboard to start their first shift seamlessly. Due to the added functionality, we have adapted the pricing structure to reflect the 3-in-1 Deputy HR suite. We acknowledge that for some businesses, this optional feature could result in a monthly price increase compared to what you currently pay each month. Feel free to reach out to and we can discuss a path forward for your HR pricing.
