With Turbine, mundane office administration becomes so much easier. Here’s how.

Say goodbye to unnecessary paperwork

No one likes filling in forms (even those produced in Word). Instead, invite your staff to log into Turbine and make their requests online. Less paperwork for them; an empty in-tray for you; everyone’s happy.

Simple user interface

Whether one of your team needs to ask for some time off, request some new equipment or submit their expenses, review them all in the same place. There is no paperwork to shuffle. Everything’s nice and tidy, double quick.

Everything in one place

Because everything is online, you get one version of the truth. There are no paper forms to lose, fewer mistakes and everybody has access to the same data so there is less confusion.

Information at your fingertips

Want to book holiday on a Sunday evening? Need to check whether you have spent your departmental budget yet? Want to check the staff handbook before you submit a purchase request? Need access to the staff database? It’s all online and you can get your information from any web browser whenever you need it.

Employee self-service

No need to let staff know how many holiday days they have left for the year. Let them check for themselves, along with updating their contact information, emergency contacts, expenses etc.

No waiting

You and your staff can access the system any time. This means you can book holidays, request purchases, check the employee database and do everything else instantly online. But also, managers can approve or reject requests online too, so they can make a decision quickly.

Save money

One of your staff wants to book a holiday. They have to check how many days they have left, get the form, fill it in, take it to their manager. Then their manager has to check the dates, check the number of available days with HR, sign the form, email the employee and hand the form over to HR who then enter it into an Excel spreadsheet or accounts package.

Each step only takes a couple of minutes, but added together it could add up to 15-20 minutes of time per request. With Turbine, each step is automated, paper-free and online. It could save you pretty penny.

Save time

Nobody on their deathbed ever wished they had spent more time filling in forms. Turbine streamlines routine business administration, saving everyone time. More time for real work. More time to be happy.

Best practice admin at a sensible price

Every company has to invent all this paperwork from scratch. Why bother? We’ve figured it out for you. Get best practice from day one and get big company HR management for a small company price.

User Reviews for Turbine

  Great, simple system for recording leave and expenses

TurbineHQ provides a great, simple to use system for recording/requesting annual leave and , expenses at a very reasonable cost especially for busy small business owners.

  Eliminates paperwork

If you still have to fill out forms and collect signatures to get approvals for anything in your company, you have to get in touch with Matthew. At first, we weren't sure TurbineHQ could be configured to suit our needs out of the box, but Matthew helped us to implement it and now it simplifies / eliminates our paperwork and email at Foodpanda immensely.

  Sorting out purchase orders

Before Turbine, purchase orders were ‘a bit of a nightmare.’ Staff would email me with requests and then I'd enter the request on a spreadsheet and reply with a made-up PO number. It wasn’t really working, and nobody knew what was going on. Now everybody has an account on Turbine, they can log in and make requests using the suppliers and accounting codes that I set up. I can simply review and approve requests at the click of a button. Even if I miss an email, I can sign in and see all the requests in one place.
