What needs improvement?

Within the absence screens, we have it set up to automatically allow up to five days holiday to carry over. If staff members are allowed to carry over, it’s a bit difficult to add it in easily. It changes their view to give an extra column… more»

Pricing is very economical and there are great flexible licencing provisions to suit small businesses.

Carry out a detailed review of the processes and requirements before implementation, and involve technical staff along with HR before finalising the schema.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I believe other options were evaluated; however, since I wasn’t in the business at that time, I do not have this information.
