Sunday Business Post: "AnnualLeave.com will save you money from day one"

The article read:

Dublin company Evolution has launched new software to manage staff leave. Online tracking system AnnualLeave.com caters for full-time, part-time and shift workers. It is provided as a software-as-a-service solution, which allows companies to tailor content based on the type of leave involved.

For example, in addition to annual leave and sick leave, they can also include maternity and parental leave and jury duty.

The application is available free of charge to organisations with ten or fewer employees based in one department and in one location. For organisations with more than ten employees, the cost increases on a sliding scale depending on staff numbers, departments, locations and leave types.

Established in 2006, Evolution is a human resources software company headquartered in NovaUCD, the innovation and technology transfer centre in University College Dublin.

“AnnuaILeave.com is online, affordable, easy-to-use and once it’s set up, you need never worry about employees’ absences again. If you look at the high cost of time and mistakes that are inherent in manual systems, you’ll see that AnnualLeave.com will save you money from day one,” said Alistair Thacker, Evolution’s co-founder.

Today Business & Leadership magazine – Ireland’s business news service wrote about AnnualLeave.com:

Alistair Thacker, CEO, AnnualLeave.com

Annualleave.com is the first online annual leave tracking system to cater for part-time and shift-work employees, and is designed to accurately track employee leave while reducing costly mistakes that can occur when organisations automatically enforce set rules in its administration.

Flexibility and control

The flexibility of this application allows complete control over the number of departments and locations included while creating specific leave types, eg, maternity leave, parental leave and jury duty.

Businesses can also create their own sub-domain with a customised login page that carries their branding and corporate logos.

How much does AnnualLeave.com cost to use?

AnnualLeave.com is SAS (Software-as-a-Service) and is free to organisations with 10 or fewer employees based in one department and one location while larger organisations are charged for its use on a sliding scale.

“For many company owners and HR managers, managing your employees’ annual leave, sick leave and other time off is a lot of hassle and it really shouldn’t be,” said Evolution founder Alistair Thacker.

“Companies get to a certain size where a wall planner or spreadsheet just won’t work anymore, and the big HRIS systems are far too expensive. AnnualLeave.com is online, affordable, easy-to-use and once it’s set up, you need never worry about employees’ absences again.

“If you look at the high cost of time and mistakes that are inherent in manual systems, you’ll see that AnnualLeave.com will save you money from day one,” he added.
