Branch is a cloud-based employee time and productivity tracking solution designed for businesses managing multiple employee shifts. It offers the ability to track hourly work, view schedules, plan shifts, assign tasks and communicate with employees.
Branch provides both real-time and future visibility on workforce availability to help managers plan resources and workflows. A mobile self-service app lets employees track daily schedules, message coworkers and swap shifts. Managers can import photos of paper schedules or create digital calendars. Employees receive notifications of new activities or schedule changes and can submit time-off requests or apply for shift changes.
Other features include digital scheduling, geo-fenced location tracking, time clock corrections, and paycheck advances. Branch integrates with the various third-party applications such as Zapier, Box, Salesforce and SAP.
Pricing is per user per month. Support is provided via phone and email.

The update interval for this app is way frequent and actually fixes things. I work with a bunch of friends and with branch messenger, it is much easier to schedule and update our calendar to our taste. Effectiveness has never been this easy and cheap as now, there is no need to have a squabble with anyone over who was meant to do what and at what time, they all constantly get reminded and everyone gets on easy. The upcoming schedule notification is great, the chatroom is just right for sharing information and the news feed is perfect for broadcast messages.
Branch simply glitches and that's just about everything i hate about it. Sometimes when trying to make a post, branch puts you off with a response about how your post can not be published at the moment, then, you make the post again in an effort to get your aim achieved and then voila, you've got duplicate posts to your name. This is something that needs to be fixed asap.

I actually within the time of use found it helpful and ease of use was a benifit. It doesn't allow much room to misuse or overborrow.
I really liked the fact it used two factor authentication and it seemed not as buggy as other platforms I have experience with.
The customer service response time and solutions offered by its artificial intelligence. It too long of a gap and no one is available via phone which would be more pragmatic and reliable.

I like the scheduler and the ability to share these things with staff easily. I love the shift swap so that i don't always need to be the one looking to replace someone's shift
I love the scheduler and the ability for employees to shift swap. It saves time and energy for me that could be used else where
I have trouble with the transition from the main page to the shift or shift swap page. It sometimes will not change or takes forever

Very easy to verify and get funds. After paying back advances, your limit is increased quickly.
I stumbled upon this product when I was in desperate need of a few extra bucks to get me through payday. I uploaded my banking info, verified my paychecks and was able to take out cash within 24 hours
There are scheduling features and I'm not sure what their purpose is.
