Take control of holidays


If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to manage your staff’s annual leave, Breathe’s holiday tracker service gives employees the ability to request holidays wherever and whenever they like. Managers can then sign it off in seconds, even if they’re not on the same continent as one another.

Gone are the days of staff having to wait days or weeks for approval. Breathe’s system streamlines the entire holiday booking process for both employees and employers, making it easy to visualise when staff are away from their desk and determine whether approving leave is a viable decision.

Keeping on top of which staff members are away is super easy now thanks to Breathe’s annual leave calendar. Offering employers and employees alike with a birds-eye view of when staff are away, the calendar can even sync up with Office 365 or Google calendars, ensuring you’re always in the know wherever you may be.

What’s more, if you want to make sure staff don’t ask for holiday during a certain time period, our software allows you to set ‘blackout’ dates on these specific days. These features can be implemented on a department-by-department basis too, making it easy to ensure all the relevant staff members are informed and kept up to date.

FAQs


Will I only be able to use the holiday tracker while in the office?

No, not at all. Breathe’s service offers 24/7 access to your holiday records wherever you are in the world. As long as you have a stable internet connection, you will be able to quickly access your absence calendar both online and within our dedicated app.

No longer will your company need to go through the old-fashioned paper or spreadsheet-based way of booking in holidays – our innovative software helps bring a whole host of different businesses into the 21st century.

Leave graphic@2xWhich types of company use holiday trackers?

All sorts. Numerous companies across a wide range of sectors rely on holiday tracking systems to streamline their HR process. Whether you’re a start-up company, a small business or a huge corporate body, it isn’t just this type of system that has been specifically designed and developed to suit business’ needs – every aspect of Breathe’s all-in-one HR software is designed to modernise admin processes, and bring HR into today’s day and age.

How easy is it to access data?

Accessing your data is super quick and easy. Whether you choose to use our dedicated HR app, or a web browser, all you need to have is an active internet connection and the software will automatically update the data whenever new information is added onto the system. Employees don’t even need to be in the office to request holidays – using the app or web, they can submit requests whenever is convenient.

Is using a HR holiday tracking system safe?

Of course! All of your organisation’s employee data and HR records will be safely stored on highly secure remote servers in our UK-based data centre. This centre is not only fitted with complete CCTV coverage but it also has motion sensors, reinforced doors, controlled key storage systems and other additional physical controls to keep your company’s information well-protected.

Will it be expensive to buy, install and use?

Advances in technology have seen HR resources improve extensively. Previously, buying HR software was very expensive, both in terms of the up front and installation costs involved. Thankfully, not that has all changed for the better.

Cloud-based HR software, such as Breathe’s holiday tracker, is now much more affordable to buy, install and run. Our monthly subscription fee starts at just £10 per month (excluding VAT), and varies depending on the size of the organisation involved (i.e. how many employees there are).

Does it cost a lot to set the system up?

No, it doesn’t. Most HR software is now charged on a monthly subscription basis, replacing the old-fashioned way of needing to pay a large up-front cost. Here at Breathe, we also don’t charge installation costs, and we won’t ask you for any cancellation fees should you decide to leave either.
