Traditional Leave Management systems have largely existed as paper records or basic excel sheets at best. They might suffice when companies don’t have a very large employee base. However, when organizations scale up, they need their technology to also evolve at a much faster pace. Digitizing workflows immediately boosts up the efficiency & productivity of a firm, because all administrative, mundane, repetitive tasks get automated, freeing up precious man-hours and reducing overall costs.
Online Leave Management systems are a perfect example. Signing in registers to record attendance (and leaves) is now an antiquated method of keeping track of employee leaves. Internet based leave management softwares offer huge convenience to employees because they can track their own leaves without pestering HR for it. They can also easily apply for full day or half day or even hourly leave , depending upon company policy. The dashboard gives a quick view of Leave History; number and types of leaves availed, leaves available, etc. Managers can create multiple types of leaves that apply to their team e.g. comp offs, event based or travel based leaves. AI support from chatbots also helps in instantly answering employee’s leave related queries.
