We all need a break from work at times and now, thanks to Breathe’s innovative Holiday Request Software, asking for time off is easier than ever.

Gone are the days of needing to take your employer to the side while at work and asking for leave in person. Now, thanks to the significant advances in technology we’ve witnessed over the years, employees can request holiday online whenever and wherever they are in the world.


We like to keep things simple.

That's why we've put together two guides to show you and your decision-makers the fantastic benefits of Breathe.


Request, track and relax

Breathe's employee holiday booking system isn't just confined to annual leave requests. Whether you need time off for compassionate reasons, jury service, paternity, or anything else, submitting holiday requests through Breathe’s software streamlines the entire process, making it easy for you to get the break you need.

How long will it take for my employer to approve my request?

This is really up to the employer. Once the holiday request has been submitted, Breathe will notify them straight away. Depending on how busy they are though, they could either accept the request instantly, or whenever they have time.

Can I keep track of my holiday requests?

Of course. Each employee will have access to a visual calendar which offers a detailed overview of who’s taking holiday and when. On each employee’s dashboard, they will also be able to manage their leave requests. From here, they will be able to check, amend or cancel any upcoming holiday requests.

Can I only request holidays while in the office?

No, not at all. As long as you have a stable internet connection and your employee login details, you will be able to make holiday requests wherever you are in the world. Say your flight back from a holiday has been delayed, for instance. Breathe’s software makes it easy for you to request an extra day’s leave from the airport, so you can recover for work in time.

No longer do companies need to go through the old-fashioned paper-based way of booking in holidays. Our innovative software helps bring HR processes into the 21st century.

What are the benefits involved?

Breathe’s holiday request software offers a ton of benefits. Some examples of these include:

  • Managing holiday is faster, easier and more convenient.
  • Holiday clashes flag up quickly and easily, notifying you via push notification.
  • Staff absences can all be seen at once on the visual calendar.
  • Automatically calculates annual leave entitlements for each employee.
  • Easy to request holidays either at work or at home.

Which companies use your software?

Tons. Our software is used by companies both big and small, and isn’t specific to any type of sector. Whichever industry your company works in, we are confident that our software can help. Breathe is a perfect fit for companies with between 10 and 200 employees. Every aspect of Breathe’s all-in-one HR software is solely designed to modernise admin processes.

How easy is it to access data?

Accessing your data in Breathe is super quick and easy – all you need to have is an active internet connection. It’s perfectly safe and secure as well, since we store all company data on highly secure remote servers in a UK-based data centre.

Will it be expensive to buy, install and use?

Thanks to the advances in technology we have seen over recent years, HR software is now a lot more affordable to buy, install and use than it was before. Previously, HR software was very expensive to buy, both in terms of the up-front and installation costs involved. Today, thanks to the emergence of cloud-based software like ours, HR software is much cheaper to buy and run.

We charge for our software on a monthly subscription basis, starting at just £18 per month (excluding VAT). The total price you pay will vary depending on the size of the organisation involved, in terms of how many employees there are.

Is it difficult to set the system up?

No, it’s incredibly easy! Since the software is all online-based, you could be using it within as little as 30 seconds. Plus, we don’t charge set up fees or cancellation charges should you decide to leave.
