"Capable, but not much more"

What do you like best?

The mobile app (iOS) does a reasonable job of making it quick and easy to log holidays etc, whenever you think of it rather than needing to wait until you're back in the office to do it.

What do you dislike?

The app and the web app interface miss quite a few opportunities to make things simple and pleasurable. In fact it sometimes feels like the important things have been made a little harder. For instance:

- The default leave type is bereavement; I've accidentally selected it a couple of times which - apart from causing concern among colleagues - I can't change it unless I cancel the leave request

- Every time I use the web app to submit a new leave request I can't find the button. This is the main thing I use it for, but the option is a small text link no where near I would expect to find it.

- If I have a request that it yet to be approved, it is hidden in my list of leave until I click 'show pending', can't understand why - it's rare I need to check approved leave as that's gone into my diary, but I do check pending requests (wondering if I got the date right or why they might not have been approved yet for instance).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits of a system such as this is reduction of admin and staff more likely to submit requests early as they have easy access to it;.

"Simple to use holiday booking system"

What do you like best?

Easy to use immediately (no training required)

Ability to see who is off in the company across multiple teams and departments

Each to approve holidays without the use of emails

reminders when you havent approved a holiday yet

What do you dislike?

There is not much ti dislike about the software as its not very complicated and does every task you need from a holiday booking system

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This allows us to separate staff into their departments, this then allows users from any department to view who is off on a certain day or period of time. We now no longer use email to book holidays and it allows approvers of holidays to easily approve/decline requests and notify users without the need to send emails

What Workforce Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Good , easy to us product"

What do you like best?

What I like best about this product is the ease of use. There is little to no training, and this software can be used by phone and computer.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes going between phone and computer can cause some problems and the interfaces look a tab bit different. Other than that there is not much to dislike about this product. It does the job and the calendars are easy to read and software is simple to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This product is great to us for a large company that may have many departments. It will allow you to see every employees calendar, what days may be blocked off by vacation or personal days. The software will remind you if you have a day that was submitted for time off and is still in pending status.

"Simple but efficient"

What do you like best?

Whosoff allows us to efficiently manage our leaves and staff days with a very simple interface and a set of tools to have a proper day to day management. The pricing is interesting for small and intermediate companies as this system is mainly aiming at startups and mid-sized companies; unsure how it would perform for a massive 5000 workers company.

What do you dislike?

It may sometimes look or seem a bit too simple and since it's just doing the job you need it may times to times feel like there isn't much room for innovation or improvement (but hey, what could you add to a staff leaves management system?)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just consider this solution as a straight forward and efficient tool to use, with a very easy setup and efficient operations management. Ditch the useless and focus on what really matters.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are saving some works about the scheduling of the WFH and the paid / annual / sick... leaves. It is definitely a massive improvement in a matter of time consumed for us to determinate wether a member of the staff can leave or not and obviously, being cloud based, it can be accessible from anywhere.

"An great tool fo"

What do you like best?

With Whosoff, it's a great way to request annual leave within a company. Just select the time you require and the dates and the request is sent to your line manager. It's a straight forward way to book your time off and like previous employers where time off was requested sometimes just in person and there was no clarity about how many days off you could take, as well as how many holidays you have left. This is all very clear using whos off. Its clear to look at the company as a whole, who is currently on leave as well as individual departments.

What do you dislike?

There was no option to request sick leave if you are a user. This would have to be done by an administrator.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Whos off has made it very clear for users and administrators in our company to give an overview of who is taking annual leave. This makes planning work events and other things much quicker. Using whos off has saved a lot of time in the company.

"Great time saver"

What do you like best?

The transparency between teams so that they can see who is off on a specific day is very useful.

What do you dislike?

Having multiple approvers is a little difficult to set up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saving time having to submit holiday requests by email, and also having the visibility of Whosoff between Staff is a great help.

"Excellent Online Holiday/Time Off Booking Solution"

What do you like best?

Very easy to set up, use and administer. The best leave booking and tracking system I have used.

What do you dislike?

There's not much here to dislike. It does what it 's supposed to do and does it really well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This product is perfect for what you need if it's just for tracking and managing holidays, sickness and other time off. The price is very competitive as well. Other HR system which offer time/leave tracking as an option are far more expensive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Staff Holiday Tracking. Easy to book time off. Easy for managers to see when their staff are off. Easy to plan time off and cover with the rest of the business - view all employees in your organisation, or by department or by Tag/Keyword.
