Pros
It has been really good, customer services are amazing and get back to me so quickly which I think is such a positive.
The Support team is always at hand by phone or email and has been an excellent service to me personally, adding greater confidence with the software and my daily usage.
The support team are fantastic if I ever need help; fast, friendly and knowledgeable.
Cons
Sometimes doesn't automate simple things but this may be more my lack of technological no how.
The system can be confusing to use if staff have a varying weekly work pattern.
I do find the reporting function is not as intuitive. When trying to run a report for the first time it is sometime difficult to select the correct filters.

Worst Customer Service

Reviewed 3 years ago

Awful. Have implemented and used many other more intuitive and better performing systems.

Pros

In principal the features are easy to use

Cons

In principal the features are easy to use and seem relatively straightforward, however when you try to use or change any of its functionality in practice, it never works correctly. The system regularly encounters issues and records change without any admin or user instruction to do so. The technical support team are never able to investigate or explain these changes. Or provide a satisfactory resolution. The technical support are unhelpful and provide no service whatsoever.

Vendor response

Being known for our great customer service it came as a surprise, and we would like to make things right.

Why E-days!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Excellent support from the on-boarding team, it was very easy to get our company up and running. Whenever we have had a question, the product support team have been able to solve it within a few hours

Pros

Simple to use, every user finds it intuitive to use and as a manager provides crystal clear overview of everyones absenteeism

Cons

No real issue. Understanding part-time rotas took a bit of time and some additional support videos would be helpful in this area

The simple book time off feature that stands out when first accessing the e-days homepage is a key feature for users to quickly book in holiday or their planning for the week/month in advance.
