The most critical asset for professional services firms is their employees’ time — their resources’ billable hours can make or break their bottom line. Part of efficiently and accurately managing this time and optimizing resource allocation means maintaining a firm grasp of your consultants’ availability and anticipated time off. For professional services firms, Replicon’s TimeOff solution offers the following:
- Personalized Time Off Policies: Define any time off type appropriate for your professional services business — vacation, sick leave, bereavement, etc. — and set accrual policies. By automating these policies you’ll free your project managers and HR from unnecessary administrative overhead.
- Consultant Self-Service: Enable project resources to manage their own availability with an intuitive system and empower project managers with intelligent approval workflows.
- Management Consultant Availability: Real-time insights into time off availability, usage, balance, and liability data help you make informed client project staffing decisions on the fly.
- Ensured Policy Compliance: Automate specific sick and absence policies based on your location, and apply these policies across the workforce to reduce employee disputes.
- Time Off On-the-Go: Enable your employees to quickly book time off from their mobile. Managers can stay on top of employee availability by viewing requests in real-time, approving, denying or changing their shift plans accordingly.
