Leave management system


Leave management may sound like a simple concept to a layperson, but there’s much more to it than just approving leave requests. For starters, there are many different varieties of leave types and time-off requests, each with their own approval process and requirements: paid time off, sick time, vacations, leaves of absence, parental leave, and more.

For most employers, managing employee leave records requires a dedicated strategy including automated leave management software. Administering leave manually is a hugely time-consuming task for your management or HR team. In most cases, an integrated online leave management system is optimal for keeping track of incoming leave applications, remaining leave balances, and pending management approvals.

A cloud-based time-off management solution streamlines your leave request and approval workflow by putting necessary employee information in a single, easy-to-access database. Managing leave requests and absences digitally also helps ensure compliance with FMLA and other key leave-related legislation.

Ascentis' powerful time and attendance software can help you with all of your leave management needs.
