Best Employee Scheduling Software
Homebase is the best employee scheduling software because it includes a rich selection of features, has an intuitive interface that makes it easy to use, and is competitively priced. It's also the only software we reviewed that offers a free tier, which may be useful for companies that want a longer trial period before choosing a program or for very small companies with tight budgets.
The free Basic plan includes scheduling, time tracking, team communication and reporting features. It also includes access to Homebase's mobile apps for both managers and employees. The company offers three paid plans: Essentials, Plus and Enterprise. Instead of charging per employee per month, Homebase charges per location per month. The Essentials plan costs $10 and, in addition to the Basic plan's features, supports text notifications and a mobile GPS time clock. The Plus plan costs $30 and supports multiple wage rates, role types and locations. The Enterprise plan includes advanced features such as auto-scheduling and forecasting, though you must call the company for a pricing quote.
