Leave management software basics

In modern business practice there are many kinds of leave available to employees; sick, annual, unpaid and compassionate. Tied together with the different leave structures of companies and the legal requirements governing the requesting and granting of leave, we can often allocate too much time and resources to manage it and lose valuable information in the mean time. Managing leave manually has become laborious, and leave management software means saving time and money for the company.

Today’s leave management software is more often found in the form of a web based application due to its easy accessibility and ability to run on almost any device and operating system that has a web browser. Leave management software makes it easy for an employee to request leave from their own desk or even from home if sick. The employee can also upload a doctor’s certificate to the requested leave application if required.

The request for leave will then reflect to the relevant superior for approval, if the leave request is denied, a reason must be entered into the leave management system and the applicant will be notified. If the leave application requires a second superior to approve it the leave management system will notify and request their approval before notifying the applicant. The leave management system can also notify other parties that are required to be notified about an employee’s leave but not required to approve the leave.

Leave management software provides a sustainable and systematic way of managing staff leave. The leave management system will automatically deduct leave, take and add leave accumulated according to number of days giving within a determined period in accordance with the company’s leave policy.

Leave records are updated on the leave software with approval or rejection of leave creating a leave history report  The data in the leave management system follows through to the Intoweb payroll or wages in a company.
