What do business leaders say about our leave planner?

Hetherington Group GP Practice uses Activ Absence to manage all leave planning across two sites.  The Practice Manager says

“Activ Absence is invaluable, we run 2 sites so couldnt envisage life without it! The busy clinicians also find the study day recording a useful reminder system.“

Natwest Content Live listed the Activ Absence Management system as one of their ‘Top tech solutions for the jobs you hate’, saying:

“This clever bit of software manages all aspects of planned and unplanned leave – two things that become hard to stay on top of as an SME grows.”

Logistics giant CM Downton, use the system to manage their drivers, who work remotely.  Their HR Manager says:

“We have 1200 users – about 500 of them are out on the road. Requesting leave is simple, and managers can approve or decline … with just a couple of clicks!

Our absence management software helps HR Managers

Striking the balance between absenteeism and presenteeism is vital to improving staff productivity.  Absence recording tools such as payroll can help, but tailor made absence management software gives you far more information, better absence tracking and a standardised absence management process.  This enables HR to deliver a supportive and effective response to staff sickness issues.

The Activ Absence management system is configurable to work with your HR policies.  Activ Absence is the most flexible absence management software solution on the market today – used and loved by businesses from 5 to 5000 employees.

Unlike other absence systems, Activ Absence can be used standalone, or as part of cloud based HR software solution, Activ People HR.  We can also provide custom software feeds for your existing systems, such as payroll or SAP, if required (ask us for a customised proposal).

Finally, because we know people are as important as their records, Activ Absence allows you to store critical employee data, such as home address and next of kin.  If you also need electronic HR document storage –  and expiry date tracking for important documents like passports, driving licences and CV’s, our documents add-on will allow you to do exactly that.

Activ Absence is not just about managing absence – we help you manage your employees.

Absence management software gives data to support staff wellbeing

Michael Arkins, HR Manager for Verizon Fleetmatics explains to Employee Benefits Magazine how the company uses Activ Absence to drive the company’s wellness strategy:

“Absence management data enables us to spot issues across our workforce and take steps to address them before they escalate,” he adds. “It also means we have the metrics to support our business case and, by continuing to monitor the data, demonstrate the return on investment.”

Our absence management software comes with great customer support

Our excellent UK based software support team regularly receive praise from our customers, and they are there to support you every step of the way.  Initial HR administrator training is included as part of the package.

However, having great customer support means nothing without great security.  Sickness absence and annual leave data is strictly private and confidential.  With new GDPR regulations coming into force, employee data security is increasingly important.  The developers of Activ Absence Management Software, Codel Software, have ISO27001 certification.

You can rest knowing your staff data is securely held in a UK-based data centre. 

Finally, when you are ready to move from an absence management system to  a full cloud based HR system, you can add other modules from the Activ People HR suite – making it the most flexible absence management tool on the market.
