In the modern working world there is one thing that both companies and employees want: empowerment.

Employees want to have more control over their time management, and employers want employees to be able to make the most of their working hours, which in some cases means not being hindered by administration.

With technology evolving at quite the rapid pace, and with the way in which companies operate being greatly impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic, many businesses are looking for new ways to minimise the amount of time their employees spend in the office, while maximising the amount of work their team is able to get through.

These days freeing up time and empowering employees is made possible through the use of innovative self-service software. Such software is designed to allow employees to do certain administrative tasks that were in the past done by HR with HR software, and in the company office.

Self-service software gives employees the ability and permission to view their payslips, to apply for leave, update any of their personal data, or submit claims for things such as travel. Everything is done online which means employees can access the self-service software regardless of where they are. You might also be interested in our payroll software.

This online hosted software is also ideal because it reduces the need to have paper. Anyone who is looking to go paperless in their business, will greatly benefit from introducing this software into their company set up.

The Benefits of Employee Self-Service Software

There are quite a few reasons why companies should consider integrating this kind of software into their existing business set up.

And when it comes to software, including having more self-service options for your employees to make full use of, there are a number of ways in which it is going to be immensely beneficial to you:

  • Employee self-service software is easily integrated into companies of all shapes and sizes, because if is designed to be scalable. The same can be said about industries, as this software is equally suitable for all types of industries.
  • The software is quite affordable, when compared to how it is going to revolutionise the way you tackle your day to day business and considering you will be able to use the software to its full potential.
  • Everything is web-based. This centralising of data means anyone who needs and has permission to access it can do so, from anywhere in the world, while the data is going to be safely stored online. It cannot be stolen, or tampered with as the security is designed to be tight. Also, with the web-based application, there is no need to use paper at all.
  • There is the convenience factor. Having the ability to access this service at any time of the day or night can take the stress out of thinking that everything has to be done immediately.
  • The system can be accessed on a variety of devices including smartphones. This again is a convenient benefit as it allows the employee various ways to access the information they need.
  • Data input is accurate. This is especially important if you are looking to use employee self-service systems for time and attendance purposes.
