Why SaaS absence management is the best choice for smaller companies

Engage SaaS (Service as a Software) lets companies accurately manage and track their absence data. Even SMEs with fewer than 250 employees benefit from using Engage and can reduce related costs and risk by recording full absence data. Did you know that reducing absence by even a fraction of a percent can save you hundreds of pounds per employee? Designed by industry experts, Engage helps you make effective change in your organisation.

Why is SaaS the best option?

Engage allows you to customise and directly interact with your absence management data. This can tell you how you can reduce absence levels at your firm and similarly, your absence-related costs. What’s even better is that Engage is in the cloud, and like many other SaaS platforms that affords you simplicity and flexibility.

Using SaaS saves you money. Firstly, there are no installation or upfront purchase costs involved. Secondly, using a pay-as-you-go service allows you to only pay for what you need and avoid overspending. This is great news, especially for SMEs with limited budgets. And, reducing absence and risk pays back your upfront investment quickly.

Data security and retention

SaaS is the option for you if you’re looking for data security and expert handling of your data. Absence data stored on Engage is encrypted and backed up to super-secure data centres. Our infrastructure, in addition to our encryption measures, ensures your data will always be safe and secure. Live backups ensure that absence data stored with Engage is not lost if the unthinkable happens and something goes wrong in the primary data centre.

Another benefit of SaaS is its accessibility. Users are able to access our service from anywhere. Setting up new users is easy requiring no installation. As a result, with Engage, a user login is generated and you’re able to use the service straight away. You are in charge of accurately managing your absence data and delegating access.

Instant upgrades

Upgrading your absence management from an on-premises spreadsheet to a SaaS service means you have immediate access to updates. Engage is a state-of-the-art software service, centred around usability. Reflecting, Engage makes constant software updates based on the users’ suggestions and testing. In addition, input from our subject matter experts gives Engage a competitive edge. You can simply log on and access the latest version of the software immediately, you don’t have to wait!

Absence Trends report

Engage allows organisations to analyse and inform their current absence management practices by viewing comprehensive absence metrics. Therefore, Engage is a purpose-built solution, that tracks, alerts and reports on your absence data, both presently and historically.

Uniquely usable: Engage

The user-friendly interface sets Engage apart from its competitors. The application was built on user-centred principles. As a result, it offers a range of tools available to line managers, HR directors, and other stakeholders.

Engage helps you turn your policy into actions. However, Engage drives management tasks that help you to improve attendance rather than just measuring absence. So, key tasks such as review meetings and trigger points are based on your personalisations and policy. Engage offers the best Saas tool for small and medium-sized organisations – at an affordable price.
