Pros

The UI looks good and is a very helpful tool to the organisation I work in. Gives me a good overview of who is off and for what reason that day.
The time off functionality is reliable and well built. I don't find that there is many product updates, which would be nice, but the value for money overall is good, and I would recommend.
Good looking, easy to use and has some nice features like Slack integration for leave management. Also their customer support response time is amazing.

Pros

Cons

Although we are only a small company, we were trying to manually record our employees' holiday and sick leave as well as days in lieu, but found that we were losing track of vital information.
It was a little confusing at times during set-up, we operate in fractions of days and sometimes it is hard to get people to understand how that can be entered into the system.
Sometimes it is not straightforward on where to find different features. It is a little confusing when it shows employees their pto.
