Case Study: Developing a Leave Request Management App


Product Overview!

The custom Leave Request Management Application was designed for a client seeking to automate and manage their employees’ leave and vacation request. This application was also made accessible via mobile phones and desktop for both Front-line workers and Corporate Staff members.


Problem!

Managing employees’ leave requests was a hectic process for our client. Employees needed to submit their leave application manually (paper) to their respective managers, which then goes through a couple of approvals processes (also signed on paper).

The main objective for the solution deployed was to create a centralized Database System, where employee leaves are managed; thus cutting down tremendously the volume of paperwork required.


Solution!

With modernization and automation being the core focus for the app, the solution addressed the need for a self-service leave management process. The application was user friendly and allowed for quick retrieval of information based on logged data.

Employees and their managers can apply for leaves online, view their leave balance, approve leave requests, etc.

Conclusion

Digitalization is the world’s current reality. Many tasks are being simplified by automation tools, software, and several digital workplace solutions.

Apart from cost-saving, the advantage of this modern way of conducting business eventually influences the productivity and efficiency of employees and managers positively.

While automated computer programs handle statutory business processes, employees and managers now have more time to work on other complex tasks that require their expertise.
