Holiday software

all singing all dancing holiday software required

Didn't find your answer?

my client has 50 ish employees and wants a software that employees can acccess and enter their holiday request directly and then be approved or otherwise by the directors remotely online, do any members know of a cost effective solution to this? Thanks Nick

We recently bought Breathe HR. Seems to do the trick and reasonably priced.

A few of my clients use Deputy. Integrates with Xero payroll if you use that.

Charlie HR is used by one as well.

It doesn't sing, doesn't dance, however it will certainly do leave requests and much more, plus first 6 months FOC:

Quickbooks online advanced payroll apparently does that.

You need a QBO license though as its integral to QBO

I use a package called Capture It from Vizual for all time management. The holiday function allows staff to request holidays via a web based portal (so can be accessed anywhere), Approvers can check against pre set peer groups to ensure that we do not have shortages of say first aiders on site before approving.

It is possible to make this work for free using Google sheets. Whether you think it is a negative or a positive if employees can see each others leave will make a big difference to the complexity of the set up.

When I have used paid for systems for a company this size I did constantly find myself questioning value for money, we seemed to have to do so much work keeping it up to date and it never worked quite how we wanted (we had some eccentricities like wanting to allow unlimited holidays but only within fixed periods). Below 30 employees I certainly wouldn't bother, above that I think it depends on how standard your system will be and whether money is currently more of an issue than admin staff time.
