“I am Nicky Halloran and have been with Beckhoff for over 19 years fulfilling various roles. At present I look after Health, Safety and Compliance issues along with managing the holiday software.”

Lack of visibility

“The main issue was lack of visibility in the calendar of colleagues booked holidays.”

Due to the openness within ScheduleLeave in regards to leave booked and an easy to use Wallchart page, Nicky can easily keep up to date with all the leave booked. Also, with the easy to use calendar feed synchronisation with Outlook, Nicky can see who is off without needing to login directly to ScheduleLeave:

“We use the full range of features in ScheduleLeave but the visibility that sinks into our own calendar is the most useful.”.

Saving time

When it comes to efficiently manage leave, Nicky recognised the saving time aspect when using an online digital product such as ScheduleLeave.

“As it is very easy to use we have saved time saved doing admin and as I have already mentioned the visibility across the board has meant less time spent trying to manage holiday in each department.”

Ease of use is also key, absence and leave management can be a complicated process, ScheduleLeave simplifies this process by making booking/approvals easy to do and most importantly, fast. There are various features which greatly reduce admin effort such as automated allowance calculations, this can be a particularly difficult task if staff are switching to/from full time and part time employment.
