Zip Schedules vs Humanity | Why Choose Zip Schedules Over Humanity

What Does Zip Schedules Offer That Humanity Doesn’t?

Zip Schedules serves as a platform businesses can use to coordinate employee scheduling by either creating recurring shifts for the week, saving and loading schedule templates, or copying the schedule of a previous week onto the current week. With Zip Schedules, companies can gain full visibility over their labor budget while keeping in consideration various compliance laws. Zip Schedules simplifies employee scheduling while also improving employee accountability by constantly notifying employees of schedule changes and adjustments.

Why Zip Schedules Is Different

See why John Evrard calls for Zip Schedules

"I was so impressed when I first saw Zip Schedules that I couldn’t wait to start using it. I’ve never seen a employee scheduling software that is so easy to use and understand. A bit of magic that helps us operate at scale."

Adaptable and Easy-to-Use User Experience

It is essential for a scheduling platform to possess an easy-to-use interface especially if it is an application that is implemented across all levels of the organization. As a crew member, employees need the ability to easily access their schedule and navigate through the application to find pertinent information about their assigned shifts. As a manager, users need to be able to communicate and relay scheduling changes to their employees while also overseeing staff scheduling within context of their labor budget.

Zip Schedules can help managers with staff scheduling by simplifying complicated processes and centralizing information all in one location. In contrast, Humanity currently has three mobile applications dedicated to staff scheduling which may be confusing for first-time users. By not having all scheduling information centralized on one application, users can end up spending more time and effort locating what they need.

For organizations who are implementing Zip Schedules as a new software, the learning curve to understand the application is not difficult since it is a fairly new product on the market. Although it is a new product in comparison to other scheduling application, Zip Schedules contains the essentials for staff scheduling features without having the complexity of having too many unnecessary functions. Conversely, Humanity is very feature-heavy so the adjustment period for using the app is much longer than it would be for Zip Schedules. Furthermore, the training period will take longer for managers when they train their staff on it as well.

Although the application itself is simple and straightforward as it is, Zip Schedules has learning resources readily available for new users to access as well. To gain a better understanding of the product, users can access webinar tutorials, articles, and more at our hubworks resource center.

Setting up a new software and training new employees on it can be complicated and time-consuming. With Zip Schedules, there are various ways to implement the new software so that it can accomodate the organization’s needs and demands. Organizations can implement Zip Schedules themselves through self-setup, which will walk clients through the onboarding process to set up their organizational profile. After adding employees, positions, and departments, the client can finally adopt Zip Schedules into their organization. If users decide to implement Zip Schedules through Customer Success Setup, the client can sign up for a 30-day free trial and after which a customer success representative will walk them through the process of setting up their organization. If the client is a large enterprise, an enterprise level representative can fly out and fully integrate Zip Schedules into their enterprise organization.

Integrate Seamlessly with Other Applications

Zip Schedules already offers a robust set of features for staff scheduling and labor management; however, through integration, Zip Schedules can work together with other third party applications to combine the functionality and effectiveness of both software applications.

Through Any Connector, Zip Schedules can seamlessly integrate with any other software application. Often times, organizations have separate applications for different aspects of their business; however manual data entry from one application to another can be tedious and prone to erroneous entries. Integration between software applications can eliminate this problem and help managers save time, money, and effort.

Humanity may offer a full-suite of features; however, it is limited in terms of third party software integration ability. Humanity can only integrate with Square POS, whereas, Zip Schedules can integrate with any third party software through Any Connector. By only restricting their integration limits to Square POS, Humanity is unable to offer payroll, onboarding/HR, and more to supplement their scheduling capabilities.

But, when we tried Zip Clock we realized how many hours we had been wasting with the timely task of handling shift changes and other employee requests.

Efficient Employee Scheduling

Managing and maintaining employee scheduling for all employees in an organization can be difficult and tiresome. Setting up a work schedule for an employee can consist of cross-checking open shift times with employee availability back and forth. Zip Schedules allows businesses to gain full visibility of the schedule so that managing employee work hours can be organized and efficient. With Zip Schedules, employee availability is display immediately as you are creating a shift.

Zip Schedules can work to improve internal communication within an organization for employee scheduling purposes. Zip Schedules allows managers to use the “Broadcast Message” feature to make company announcements to all site employees. Rather than using multiple platforms to communicate, managers and employees can message each other if they need to directly communicate. In addition, staff members can also offer their shift to a coworker directly from the application itself.

With Zip Schedules, businesses can have access to faster employee scheduling. Instead of creating a completely new schedule every week, managers can copy a schedule from a previous onto the current one and edit from there. Additionally, managers can also save and load schedule templates to use for later. Unlike Humanity, saving an individual shift that is commonly used is also a possibility with Zip Schedules as well. Zip Schedules allows businesses to import sample CSV files for employees to download so they can import information into the application, whereas Humanity does not offer that option.
