Great product, great service, highly recommended!

Reviewed 7 years ago

Activ Absence has saved us time and money and is much better than our old spreadsheet which used to be the bane of my life! Staff can access via their own portal, and we no longer have any annual leave clashes or skills shortages. We no longer need agency staff when all the forklift truck drivers are off, (as we have set crteria that prevents them all being off at the same time). This in itself more than pays for the software, but we have noticed a 23% reduction in staff absence and I now have time to manage staff instead of dealing with annual leave queries
