Focus Self Service
Request holidays and clock via app or web portal
Keeping track of absences can be tricky. Managing holiday requests, balancing your business’ labour requirements and keeping on top of absenteeism is a challenge you can do without. Managers can so easily be bogged down with basic administrative tasks when they should be managing your business’ productivity instead.
The Focus Time & Attendance system offer solutions for streamlining absence management to keep you in control, helping you notice trends and be responsive to low resourcing issues so you can take action when you need to.
A suite of product features reduces the administrative burden.
Employees can directly request absences through the Focus Self Service web portal or app where they can see their own holiday balances, booked and refused requests and team availability. Requests need not be limited to holidays, they don’t even need to be absences – you might permit booking of parental leave or on-call bonuses. Flexibility is built-in.
We use Focus to log on/off times for all staff, check on lateness, use it to calculate overtime hours, record absence (also provides Bradford Factor scores), authorise holidays, standby logging, fire report. Basically, without Focus we would be struggling to record all of the above and it would be difficult for us to run our business. Focus takes care of all of these vital administration and HR functions and we can then concentrate on our core business.
"The calendar view for employees is a great way of keeping track of employee’s time off visually."
Managers can view, approve and deny absence requests with ease. View full team availability and record absences directly into the system.
Absences only need to be recorded once with full auditing and are fully visible through timesheets, calendars, rota planning, reporting and attendance features. Finally, hours can be imported directly into payroll eliminating manual entry and error.
Focus automatically identifies absence where the employee hasn’t attended according to their work schedule. Display real-time attendance on the Focus Attendance Board and identify low resourcing across your workstreams.
