What do you like best?

Deploy reduces wasted, unproductive, or non-value added time spent filling client order with the click of several buttons. Furthermore, it allows you to confirm placements, confirm arrivals, and reduces no-call no-shows dramatically for clients using Deploy verse clients not using Deploy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Improvements are being made!!! However, clients want the ability to request specific workers or open up requests to specific worker first before sending requests to the general population. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Keep doing what you are doing. Headed in the right direction. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reducing wasted time in calling, placing, and verifying worker placements. Giving clients more control of requesting staff and reviewing staff placements. Using Deploy has allowed our recruiter to work more open orders than they would without using Deploy. Early estimate could see worker hours for one recruiter to exceed 5000 weekly hours per recruiter with the use of Deploy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use of deploy. In sales I am working to build more business development and interest. This tool is highly successful in doing that. No prospective customer has complained about not being able to figure out how to use the software. It makes my job easier in convincing them to give us an opportunity. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the features of the long term order placements can be time consuming to adjust. Also, I would like to have a wider range of miles for candidates to see jobs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to fill last minute jobs to get good staff to cover shifts and improve our speed. Able to pick up more shifts from clients Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like best about Deploy is that the format allows users to view the schedule in a Calendar view so that it is easy to see shifts available each day within a month. This viewing also has a color coding scale to show which days of the month are fully filled (green), moderately filled (yellow), and need many fills (red). This viewing makes it easy for my office to see which days we need to focus our recruiting efforts on within each month Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One thing I dislike about Deploy is that you are not able to manipulate someone's timesheet by viewing their shift through their profile. You are only able to change a time sheet by clicking on the employee name through accessing the shift through the schedule Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits of this platform are that as a staffing agency, we are able to fill jobs without actively recruiting for them. Our employees are able to access and pick up shifts by using their app independently of any verbal communication with our agency, which is great Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Response from Ally Loewe of Deploy by Shiftgig

We’re glad you’re seeing improved retention at your agency! We believe the more engaged workers are, the easier they are to redeploy. We agree that allowing workers to apply or self-register for agencies will be a huge value-add and we plan to address that in future iterations of the platform! Thanks so much for your feedback!
