In many companies, vacation leave requests and sick leave notifications are still being submitted in writing. Frequently, employees have to prepare the application themselves and observe certain requirements. Brickmakers GmbH has developed the “timeout” app for the German and Swedish markets in order to minimize the effort required, simplify the process and facilitate planning for the employer. The application is integrated in Office 365 and can also be used on mobile devices.
Thanks to the integration in Office 365, the complete company organization is retained. All public holidays and the legal requirements of the respective country are observed. The employer can conveniently manage employees via existing office groups, accept or reject requests with just a few clicks and track employees’ presence or absence.
The procedure is also uncomplicated and fast for employees. After logging into their existing office account, they can submit a request for approval by their line manager. The app can also be used to manage overtime and sick leave, thus easing the burden on the employee. In the case of sick leave, mobile access offers real advantages.
The possible types of absence can be defined individually by the company. As the system is linked with Microsoft Azure Cloud, the data is stored securely and redundantly as well as in compliance with the GDPR.
