Automated Leave and Attendance Tracking

Attendance management provides instant data regarding employee availability at all times to ensure that work assigned to the team is not hampered.
HRMS enables transparency in various aspects including communication within the office, targets to be achieved, expectations from employees and so on. This helps a firm to function in a systematic way where everyone is aware of what is expected of them.
