Tasks, Time, Attendance & Scheduling Management Solution

About honeybeeBase

honeybeeBase is a cloud-based solution for managing tasks, employee scheduling, attendance and absences, time tracking, file sharing, employee recognition, communication, and more. The software can be used by companies of various sizes, from small businesses up to multi-location franchises, and can be accessed from any web-enabled device.

With honeybeeBase, users can track employees’ hours, including paid and unpaid breaks, with automatic notifications delivered in real-time whenever an employee starts or finishes their shift, or goes on a break. Daily reports of all notifications can be emailed to users, and managers can also access weekly reviews of time cards to approve logged hours on a weekly basis. The attendance module records all late arrivals, early departures, and absences, and custom absence reports can be generated.

Through the vacation module, employees can view their available leave balances and request time off, with managers able to approve or reject requests through honeybeeBase. Custom names can be added for different time off banks to reflect existing naming conventions. honeybeeBase’s communication tools allow users to communicate with employees in bulk or one-on-one. The news module can be used to post information relevant to the entire company, while the internal messaging tools enable private communication with employees, and the commlog acts as a message board for employee posts. The activity stream automatically notifies users to new activity requiring their attention. honeybeeBase also allows users to share important documents and files, with customizable access permissions to control which users can upload, view, or edit documents.

    Great tool to approve hours!

    Reviewed on 2020-02-05

    Pros

    It is easy to approve hours each week and see totals worked. You can also easily add when shifts were missed so you can remember why hours were lower during a certain period.

    Cons

    I find it difficult to get to the actual area where I approve hours for my students. There are a lot of clicks and menus to get through before actually being able to click approve, but overall the tool works well.

    Pros

    Ease of new employee setup and also ease of employee clock in and out

    Cons

    I seem to have problems with the time paid off feature and keeping up with the paid time off bank. I probably didn't get it setup properly in the beginning

    This software has proved crucial in implementing accurate performance management processes.

    Pros

    I am impressed with the ease to update the features within this software. The technical support team and knowledge base is also extremely impressive.

    Cons

    There are many methods to accomplish a single task. Although this can be perceived as a benefit to some, many find this cumbersome.

    The biggest area I have benefited from is the accrual of PTO. This used to take a significant amount of time every pay period to calculate manually. Honeybee allows us to input an employee's hire date and tell it how to calculate for each employee automatically. This has allowed us to become more efficient and also to ensure our calculations are exact with no errors.

    Pros

    It tracks an abundance of information. I like how you can customize it to your company's needs, such as your company's PTO policy. It made it easy to track different employees' time off accruals, which are unique to each employee depending upon date of hire, position, etc. Our employees like the fact that they can have the app on their personal smart phones so they can keep track of their own hours, requests for time off, etc. Utilizing this app has saved us money in the long run due to having to use less paper for time sheets, time off requests, and PTO updates to employees. Customer service is excellent. Anytime I've emailed or called, I've received a response in a very timely manner.

    Cons

    It took us quite awhile to learn how to maneuver the site. Sometimes I still get confused how to get back to a certain section. I'd like to see a more thorough instructional manual become available. Even though we've gotten used to most areas of the software that we use daily, those areas that are less frequently used still take up more time than we'd like just to remind ourselves of how to tackle certain issues. I've had to make our own HoneybeeBase instructional manual, so it would have been nice if a more thorough one was provided.

    The fact that employees can visibly see their vacation/personal time, and keep track of their own schedule is a huge benefit to time spent contacting HR with questions.

    Pros

    It's ease of use. Once logged in, the software is user-friendly after 10 minutes of training. Hours worked, vacation/personal time, all the valuable information is right in front of you, like a dashboard. Easy to enter time off requests, messages are displayed where they are most visible.

    Cons

    Working with a vehicle manufacturer, the systems they have in place slow the software down. At times, you clock out for lunch, and are waiting for the software to catch up and record the time. I don't believe this is attributed to the software itself though.
