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.

    Karishma listened very carefully to the issues I explained that our staff members were having with BLIP. She understood exactly what our issues were. She asked me to open the App on my phone so she could walk me through, step by step, how to show my staff members to navigate the App and how to fix any issues they may have. Karishma further walked me through administrative settings so I could have a better understanding of how to fix any other issues that might crop up, or, how to prevent some of the issues that had been happening due to my not setting the App up correctly.Thank you Karishma for exceeding any expectations I had when I made the call to Peninsula. You were kind, professional and had a great sense of humour.
