“Although our principle driver for a move of HR and payroll software and services was a financial one, the results of this change have far surpassed simply a monetary value.”
"The processes worked well and the team’s professionalism definitely played a role in achieving what was an extremely tough feat in such a small timescale."
"The support we received from the Access People Project Team throughout the entire project has been fantastic… It would be challenging enough under normal circumstances but to do this during the pandemic is a huge achievement."
“Access People was the only provider we spoke to that could give us an end-to-end, secure, cloud-based HR and Payroll solution that works on any device, allowing us to transact and transform all on one platform. We can now go from roster to time and attendance, pay deductions, payment and beyond in one system.”
“The feedback we have received so far has been very positive and employees generally feel happier that we have made a difference to their working day. Commercially we will achieve the return on investment in two years. However, in real terms the hours saved for each manager are significant.”
“The ability to centralise a number of siloed systems had a profound impact on the effectiveness and efficiency of our HR team - especially as a multinational conglomerate. After the project, we saw significant improvements in key areas of the business, like employee retention and GDPR compliance.”

Staff holiday booking system FAQ's
How do you manage staff holidays using the software?
Smart, cloud-based software helps HR teams and managers to manage staff holidays by providing clear visibility of all holidays requested and booked. Software can automate and streamline the holiday approval process, and significantly reduce enquiries and heavy manual admin around annual leave entitlement.
A more advanced holiday booking system will provide mobile self-service functionality to give employees visibility of their annual leave entitlement and control over managing their holiday bookings. Managers will receive real-time notifications and a view of their team’s availability and any conflicts or staff shortages. This allows them to approve or decline holiday requests quickly and seamlessly.
If your software for managing staff holidays is part of a wider HR or workforce management solution, you’ll be able to get a better view of your data all in one place, including staff clocking in and out, rostering and shift swapping to support a more joined-up approach to your HR strategy.
What is the difference between a staff holiday booking system and absence management software?
A staff holiday booking system helps managers and employees to easily view, request and approve holiday requests in a central location. Absence management software is a more holistic solution helping organisations to manage all absences on one system; from holiday entitlement to parental leave and sickness.
