I actually think it's pretty confusing to use and I wish there was a way to turn off a lot of the features. I haven't decided if this is the right app for me yet.

We've been using Homebase for almost two months now and it works great for our team. In the beginning, we had a few questions and customer service was quick to respond and help when we were migrating our staff from the Shopify POS to the Homebase platform.

We have the Homebase app on our iPad that we use for the Shopify POS, and many of our staff have the app on their phones for a smoother clock-in experience. With staff members of all ages, a simple and efficient system is really important for us and Homebase makes everything run smoothly.

As a small business, we are glad that we can do everything we need to do on the free plan, but the features of the paid plans give us a lot to think about in terms of ways we can streamline our processes.

Empire Vape Shop

Absolutely terrible service and far over priced. Even if this was $50 a month it still wouldn't be worth its price. The way they handle accounts is absolutely despicable. For instance, if one of your clerks have had a previous account under a different employer, they need to contact homebase directly to have the information switched over. We experienced NOTHING but errors trying to use this, mixed up old employees..etc. Absolutely disgusted with this application and the developers.
