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.

All signing, all dancing absence mangement tool

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!

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

Great Product, Professional Company

Absence Management is now clearly and consistently recorded which gives us the tools to manage this (we did not have this pre e-days).

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.

Very good!

Pros

User friendly, you can't break it! We also like that you can customise your personal page.

Cons

We don't like the main calendar view, it's confusing and you can't scroll week by week, it only jumps month by month.

Absence Management is now clearly and consistently recorded which gives us the tools to manage this (we did not have this pre e-days).

Pros

Because it is an online tool, staff can access it easily from their phones. It keeps clear records and allows us to see patterns for absence at a glance.

Cons

Not always intuitive when something doesn't work but a quick email to support and this is usually rectified with clear instructions from the support team.
