No more tracking holidays and sick leave in Excel. The reports tab allows you to view who's on leave by department and month. You can see "at a glance" who is away and when.
Your employees won't have to chase around for a manager to sign their request. You are notified by email when somebody requests leave. You can even approve the request with one click straight from the email.
You can subscribe to individual and group calendars from within your favourite calendar application. Works with Outlook 2007 (and greater), iCal and Google Calendar.
Calculating savings from electronically managing holidays and other absences is not an exact science. The most obvious saving is in the time of your employees' in not having to check if other people are away (which version of the holiday tracker is the latest?); finding a manager to approve the request; and updating the spreadsheet. This calculator conservatively estimates the direct cost to your business of this wasted time.
