Absence management software simplifies the end-to-end process of employees taking paid or unpaid time off from their working hours. Absence management software enables easy reporting for an employee absence, communicates those absences to managers and the HR department, integrates with other software like payroll, hiring platforms, and time tracking software or HRIS, and replaces an outdated employee call out line.

Attendance systems help steamline employee calls for time off and unexpected absences like a last minute emergency, and provide valuable reports and insights that help companies improve workplace time and attendance tracking, and ease administrating time off balances.

An employee call off hotline is a phone number to call that workers use to report time off or an unplanned absence, like calling in sick. The employee call out line is usually answered by a human operator who records and gathers information and may provide a confirmation number so the company can correctly code employee unexpected absences, document if the absence is related to a workplace injury, and pay, or not pay, sick leave.

Because human error is inevitable even with an experienced HR department, many companies are replacing their traditional employee absence reporting line with online call off hotline services, like a text-based call out and time tracking system. Time and attendance software helps ensure correct reporting of absence types, provides real-time alerts, more transparency, allows for custom leave types, and automated absence reports of time off.

TeamSense uses Employee ID and name to validate your team members. Once we connect the Employee ID to a dedicated telephone number we return requests to the number we have on file.

Our straightforward method is convenient for hourly employees or those without easy access to a company email or computer to request time off - during or outside of working hours. Their shift supervisor can also get immediate notification through texts on their mobile phone. All employee phone calls to request time off through the call out line are logged with detailed reporting. Staff memebers can access these in the secure web portal for accurate documentation that includes details of employee availability. All from one time and attendance management system.

Yes, our absence management system requires internet access to collect employee responses.

The TeamSense self service time and attendance software does not provide an answering service with live operators although employee call off hotlines are provided. Communication about employee work schedules is done through text messages and an optional IVR system that acts as the employee attendance line. This makes gathering time tracking data and the time off management process convenient for employees and cost-effective for employers while providing multiple time and attendance hotline options. Mobile phones with texting can be your new employee attendance tracker.

With a streamlined absence reporting system, HR teams can find easier absence management of employee absenteeism and sick leave, more human resources productivity, save money on daily administrative tasks, reduce employee disputes, more compliant employees, easier conflict resolution with reliable record keeping for call outs, ensure adherence to the call in policy, and regain lost productivity for the management team.

Manage time off, unnecessary absences, and approval workflows for employee leave easily with an efficient attendance management system. Generate reports and manage work hours from a web based application built for mobile phones.
