CakeHR is the ideal choice for small to medium companies that don’t want to get bogged down in using spread sheets to manage employee' attendance and absence or paperwork for onboarding and off-boarding processes.

Our HR software eliminates all the paper, puts employee time off requests directly in the hands of the appropriate managers, and maintains a comprehensive calendar of all approved time off so that managers can plan accordingly.

With CakeHR, employees can log into the system from anywhere, using any device, to view their time off history and available balance, and to request time off.

Your HR - simplified! :)
