Flex Catering integrates with the popular rostering software Deputy.

The integration passes the Event and its respective Staff to Deputy as Schedule and Shifts, respectively.

The first step is to connect your Flex Catering account to your Deputy account. You can do that by going to System > Integrations > Staff tab.  On this screen click Connect to Deputy.

Once you are connected to Deputy you will be be able to select:

  • Default Location (it will pull your locations from Deputy)
  • Default Area (it will pull your Areas from Deputy)
  • Shift Type: Open of Empty
  • Require Approval: Yes or No
  • Sync Method: Manual or Automatic
    • Manual: you can initiate the import to Deputy based on your selections in the Event List.
    • Automatically: it will automatically import Confirmed events every 15min to Deputy.

Staff in Flex Catering is a product type. When you select product Type Staff and create an event and order with Staff, it will allow to import the event into Deputy.

You can manually import the event into deputy by going to the event list, select the events you want to import and click on the button ‘Import to Deputy’. This will open a mapping screen that will allow you to select with Area each staff in the event is allocated in Deputy. In addition, it allows you to select if it is Open or Empty Shift and whether approval is required.

  • If the import fails, it will show a red cross.
  • If the import succeeds, it will show a green tick
  • If you change the number of staff in Flex after you have imported to Deputy, it will show a yellow tick and allow you to re-import. The re-import will update the schedule and shifts in Deputy to reflect what is in Flex Catering.

Great software for our small catering company. It has revolutionised the way we work from taking orders online to invoicing. The team at Flex have also been incredibly helpful throughout the whole process and are immediately available if/when we have any issues/questions.

Excellent service and support from the team - great to easily be able to problem solve as needed. Product fits our needs, makes things easy and is simple to use if you have some (small amount) of experience with similar software. A great solution.

Flex Catering was the best business decision we made. It has built consistency within the business and provided transparency for our customers. Now customers can view and order from our online menu. Our staff can easily identify the confirmed orders and print specific production reports for the kitchen and drivers. Customer support is always online and very helpful. New versions are released every few weeks or so with nice additional features which are always very welcome and helpful. A big thumbs up to the Flex team :)
