Managing leave time online just might be the smartest business decision you make this year, and there are 10 great reasons why:
- Save Precious Time and Money by Managing Leave Time Online
If you’re currently managing leave time manually with paper forms, spreadsheets, calendars and endless emails, then you’re probably painfully aware of how much of your time is being wasted that could be better spent elsewhere. Instead of manually looking up how much leave an employee is allowed and then calculating where they’re at, this can all be automated when you use a robust web-based leave management system like CaptureLeave. You can set up each unique leave accrual for each employee so you always instantly know where they’re at in terms of leave time available and leave time used. Employees can request their leave time online using the system, totally eliminating the need to fill out paper forms. Automating as much of the leave management process as possible will make your life so much easier!
- Managing Leave Time Online Means Fewer Headaches and Hassles
The instant visibility you get into the big picture of your company by managing leave time online with a solution like CaptureLeave will result in many fewer headaches and hassles. There will never be any question about whose leave request came in first because it’s all tracked within the system. You’ll easily be able to see where there are potential conflicts in order to resolve them earlier and faster. Each employee user will also always know where they’re at in terms of leave time accrued, which will prevent them from requesting time off they don’t have just to have the request rejected. And there will be fewer conflicts to begin with because employee users will also be able to see what percentage of their colleagues are already going to be off on any given day, which will inform their own leave requests.
