e-days overview

What is e-days?

e-days is an online, self-service web application for managing, tracking and reporting employee holiday and absence. The system is often integrated with core HR and Payroll systems to increase the effectiveness of organisations infrastructure. e-days is used by more than 600 organisations worldwide, ranging from large multi-nationals to SME's across every sector and in more than 80 countries.

Unlike an Excel spreadsheet or paper based system, e-days delivers value to managers and HR by providing instant access to accurate employee absence records. Employees can also quickly access their holiday entitlement and request time off work with ease. Managers are able to book absences themselves or authorise absence requests at the click of a button through email notifications.

e-days can be used to manage any type of absence within an organisation including sickness, overtime, time off in lieu and can support any custom absence types that an organisation might have. High-level reporting tools can be used to gain insight of absences across an organisation whether this is a general overview or looking at a specific employee’s absence trend. Compared to a manual absence management process, e-days saves business costs and allows organisations to become more productive whilst reducing their unplanned absence levels.

Excellent overall experience. We have been customer for 5+ years and intend to continue using them. They are a little pricey - but you get what you pay for!

Pros
Very easy to use as a Manager and User. Very flexible and can set up as many teams with all sorts of different rules. Great reports.

Cons
Sometimes doesn't automate simple things but this may be more my lack of technological no how!

I can produce a very accurate account of staff movement and create reports with confidence, making my role more effective. I use e-days continuously throughout my working day and find that I gain more confidence the more I use it with the added support of the e-days team.

Pros
e-days gives accurate accounts of daily/weekly/annually of staff absence, whether planned or unplanned. It allows me as an Administrator the ability to add and/or remove information appropriately associated with our company. If there are any issues or users are unsure of entries or procedures, I can amend or support with ease. 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.

Cons
Entering/amend new staff can be quite time consuming.

This tools is great for absence management, sickness management and reporting.

Pros
The software is easy to use, straight forward new joiner set, any maintenance is easily done.

Cons
I wish that we could add form to some types of absence booking. Also the length of day changes in the setting which causes for the holiday entitlement to change to weird odd numbers.

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.
