the fight to be the best annual leave planner it can be for its clients.
Our Motivation to create LeaveWizard
We find it hard to believe that spreadsheets are still the number one tool used to manage staff annual leave and absence.
Some businesses still use paper forms to request and approve leave!
It seems that the world around us has evolved dramatically, but leave management tools haven’t kept up with today’s needs.
So we decided to do developed an online employee leave planner that allows you to track and manage your employee's holiday and
absence at the click of a button.
The problem with tracking annual leave on a Spreadsheet...
You cannot tell the state of play from a spreadsheet. Without a vast amount of formulae, its difficult to see if people
always have the monday after a big football match off, or if someone always calls in sick every 3rd thursday.
• From an employees perspective, it can be difficult to know whether a request will be approved or not.
• Managers, is there always a worry that the spreadsheet is not up to date, and or that you might not know whose request
came in first, if they approve on a 'first come, first serve' basis.
• From a HR perspective, a spreadsheet makes it difficult to track how many days holiday each individual employee has
remaining, and encourage them to use it up.
• Is it business critical to have cover for particular people to have their roles 'covered' while they are off, like
receptionists, or teachers?
• Or is it important that 2 people cannot be off at the same time?
There is a limit to what a spreadsheet can do when tracking employee/staff annual leave
Why should you trust us with your annual leave planner?
Across our team, we have many years experience in managing teams, in many different industries, so we have seen the
challenges and pitfalls of managing staff leave and absence first hand.
Beyond the insufficiencies of paper forms and spreadsheets, we noticed other inefficiencies. We found that some large HR
systems have clumsy and confusing user interfaces, systems offering little value over manual methods or tools that looked
promising but were way too simplistic. Systems that showed a lack of understanding of the reality of leave management in
We believe that managing leave should be a task that takes moments, not minutes, which is exactly what a good online system
should allow you to do. And so, we created Leavewizard.
