No more paper forms and lousy spreadsheets

Managing staff vacation leave the old-fashioned way—by hand—is a pain. It’s hard, takes ages, and you’ll certainly agree… it’s boring. So we fixed it for you with BrightHR.

This award-winning HR software makes your vacation management faster, easier and much more convenient, freeing you from working out vacation leave.

Because you don’t want to waste time figuring out full-time, part-time or variable hour annual leave entitlements. But by law, you must get them right. It’s a big responsibility. And that’s where BrightHR steps in:

  • checkGet automatic staff vacation entitlement calculations and be confident they’re right.
  • checkEven the awkward calculations like when staff join during the vacation year, this software gets it bang on the money.
  • checkAll staff entitlements auto-refresh when your new vacation year begins, so you can forget about manual updates forever and trust BrightHR to do its thing.

Too many people off at the same time? Not anymore

It shouldn’t ever happen, but it does. Employers realize too late that they’re short on numbers because some employees booked the same vacation leave.

If scrambling for last-minute cover sounds all too familiar to you, here’s how to avoid it:

  • checkBrightHR flags any vacation clashes with you, stopping any vacation leave chaos before it has a chance to happen.
  • checkKeep track of all employees’ remaining vacation entitlement so you can plan well in advance for any upcoming busy periods.
  • checkCheck the calendar to see your whole team's absences at once—past, present and future.

    Emil spoke with me a week ago regarding a request I had. During my conversation with him he made some suggestions to help me get the best out of my investment into BrightHR. He took the time to walk me through some steps and he explained how the apps would be useful and applicable to my needs. He was very professional, patient and friendly; it seemed to me he thinks out of the box to help me get the most out of their service to suit my particular business application. Overall an amazing customer service experience!

    Having interviewed a number of different service providers, we are very glad to have chosen to work with BrightHR. I was very pleased with the professionalism of the sales staff, Zach. Today was the first day of On-boarding session and I was impressed with the courteous and respectful manner with which Erica introduced me to the BrightHR software system, listened carefully to my questions and answered them to my satisfaction. I look forward to working with the BrightHR and BrightSafe Advisory teams as well.
