Award-Winning Annual Leave Booking System

Holidays are generally happy times. But not for businesses that have no idea who’s in and who’s out.

No business should have to spend hours or even weeks calculating the ramifications of absence data.

A business is only as successful as its people. Making sure they are rested and happy is key.

Simple & elegant user experiences.

Businesses that rely on manual processes for absence and leave put employees, Human Resources, and payroll through hard times. Simply requesting a holiday is a time drain and can be fraught with inaccuracies and questionable security. Separate logins and paper or spreadsheets are inefficient and old-fashioned. edays integrates (using Single-Sign-On) to HR and Payroll and with your calendar (iCal export) for full leave visibility. A simple and elegant experience with not a single spreadsheet in sight.

Holiday booking made easy.

Holiday booking made easy. Companies with employees spanning multiple countries know the pain of maintaining multiple sets of legislation and policies to ensure compliance. Employers with people on differing contracts know the struggle of manually calculating holiday entitlement. Businesses with a transient workforce know the headache of manual leaver calculations each month. HR and payroll teams set time aside every, single, month just to tackle the mountain of admin that stacks up behind each holiday request. This isn’t sustainable.

edays handles global absence, compliance, and variable working patterns, with no manual calculations. It’s super flexible too and will auto-calculate changes in policies, holiday entitlements, and work out leaver calculations. Why wouldn’t you want edays?

Intelligence that supports your people AND your business.

Intelligence that supports your people AND your business. Managers often accept holiday requests only to realise they’re unable to deliver when multiple members of the team are off at the same time. Lack of easy holiday visibility is a simple fix with edays, so you are never knowingly understaffed again. Managers also have the capability to plan around absence trends and proactively manage employee wellbeing – predicting who might need a break and is at risk of burnout so they can offer the most helpful course of action. Real-time insight into who has taken leave, who has taken very little, or perhaps who has taken far too much, are key HR insights for employee health and wellbeing.

How to manage holiday as a growing business?

Managing staff holidays doesn’t have to be filled with admin burden and complex entitlements. It can be a breeze, even for the biggest and fastest-growing businesses.

What is edays?

Over 1,400 clients, with 300,000+ users, spread across 120+ countries, have taken control of absence using our cloud-based, self-service solution.

What is Annual Leave Booking?

Annual Leave Booking with edays is a simple, flexible platform that allows employees to request planned leave, which can be reviewed and approved by managers, all in the one place.

Multiple absences by different people on the same day or time period can also be flagged on our system, as well as the having the ability to send employees reminders to book annual leave to avoid a buildup of absences all at once.

What if I have fewer than 50 employees?

We’d love to offer edays to you, however, please note there’s a minimum purchase price of £1200 which covers 50 licenses. We have many growing customers who fall into this category, if you want to join this group then get in touch and we’ll come back with the next steps!

What support do you offer?

We have a modern support portal with integrated knowledge base. If you are unable to find what you need, then the support desk can help you get through the issues. Whether it is just using the ticketing system or it needs a video call, our team is ready to help.

For less urgent issues, perhaps you need some help with additional licenses, or would like some more information on a new feature, then the Customer Success Team is there to help. For customers with more than 200 licenses, you will have a dedicated Customer Success Manager, while those with fewer than 200 licences will benefit from our Tech-Touch Customer Success programme.

If you need more training, or perhaps you are expanding into new countries or regions, then our Professional Services team are always on hand to provide expert help.

How does your pricing work?

Our best-in-class solution is built from the ground up based on your requirements as a business. From the number of employees you have to the number of countries you operate in, every business is different. That’s why we take the time to truly listen to your absence challenges to provide a tailored price based on your needs. Plus, we don’t charge for features you don’t need!

What are the optional features?

We have many optional features which are frequently being added to, for example:

  • Employee directory
  • Document store
  • Time submission
  • Advanced analytics
  • Test / staging system(s)

Talk to your sales advisor or partner to see which may be right for you.

Are there any additional or hidden charges?

No. Everything from implementation, license fees, support and more are rolled into a single transparent price.

We find the edays system excellent and very user-friendly. I’m the master user in the HR team and have found it to be a great system. The help desk at edays is also excellent and always reply with accurate help straight away. Whenever I meet other HR professionals I always recommend edays if they want an effective holiday tracker system.

Ben Efford (MCIPD), HR Business Partner – Monster Energy

The edays system has saved us a huge amount of time when it comes to logging and inputting holiday and sickness data. The original process was manual and paper-based, and led to inaccurate recordings, especially when it came to sickness which was often recorded after an employee returned to work and was therefore easier to miss or forget.

Wendy Godsman, Payroll Team Lead

We were using an online system, but it wasn’t easy and intuitive for our employees and managers because it wasn’t an absence management tool – it’s mainly known on the market as a ticketing tool. Some of our locations weren’t using it at all. That’s why, when we had to consolidate data, it was a challenge taking us from some days to several weeks to provide the overview and numbers required.
