Before LeavePlanner

Prior to the introduction of the LeavePlanner online system we had various manual paper methods of authorising and controlling holidays across our four branches. These were very inefficient and time consuming and prone to incorrect recording. We have a total staff of approx. 355 and there was no consistency in reporting and Management had no real idea of what holiday or absence had been taken across the group.

After LeavePlanner

...we can now view any member of staff or department within the company. Northside have found LeavePlanner extremely useful... it smooths out the the whole request and authorisation process. The summary view of the whole company or department is extremely useful when planning holidays and absence as you can see in summary your staffing levels as each request is made, thus there is no chance of signing off a holiday and being left short staffed. In addition it is useful for all members of staff to be able to check when someone is on holiday without having to refer to manual records, all this saves time and o

Before LeavePlanner

All leave and any absences had to be requested on paper forms and the details then transposed onto wallcharts, updating Reception was a nightmare. As we merged with another firm of solicitors in 2000 we went from approximately 30 staff to 65 with all the extra paperwork that this entailed we needed to look for a system that was more central for everyone.

After LeavePlanner

Life couldn't be more simple, any requests for any type of leave are put through, everybody knows exactly how many days holiday they have left, how much sickness they have taken and Reception can see at a "click" who is out on any particular day. The reporting procedures assist management and everyone is happy - especially me as we now have a paper free system.

Before LeavePlanner

Digital Marketing Experts Total SEO had always planned their holidays using a manual, paper based system but as the company grew this became more and more difficult to control. This often resulted in key members of staff being away from the office at the same time as others, leaving them short staffed when they needed their most important people in the office.

After LeavePlanner

Last year Total SEO started using LeavePlanner as their solution for planning holidays and staff time away from the office.

We have found LeavePlanner to be an awesome management tool and a great way of staying on top of planning holiday and absence with very little hassle.'

Before LeavePlanner

There were times when holidays could have been double booked and key members of the team were off at the same time with no cover. It took time to ask around the office to see who was off and updating of messy wallcharts was time-consuming.

Before LeavePlanner

"As all our staff were based in different departments and locations, it was a real ordeal keeping track of when people wanted holidays as we had to make sure certain people did not take the same time off. As we used to use different diaries for different departments, it often meant people were waiting days (sometimes weeks!) to get authorisation for annual leave. It also meant that sometimes we double booked holidays and in some cases gave people time off they were not owed!"

After LeavePlanner

"Since using LeavePlanner, we have not had one case of holidays clashing as our employees know who has booked holiday and for when before they even ask for time off. Everyone's booked dates, holiday allowance, sick days taken etc are stored in one place making the authorisation of holidays and time off a real doddle...."
