    Appogee HR Essentials FAQs

    Can I store company policies and/or employee contracts?

    Yes: the document management system offered in Appogee HR Essentials offers fully secure storage for any type of document, with access permission controls to let you restrict access to those who need it.

    Does Appogee HR Essentials offer e-signature capability?

    Yes. The Appogee HR integration with DocuSign allows you to request electronic signatures on your employee records - helping you to improve document accuracy by reducing the risk of missing signatures or incorrect information.

    The Appogee HR acknowledgement system is also built into Appogee HR Essentials which lets you request and require acknowledgement of receipt of documents and of any required actions. This offers a full and comprehensive audit trail on all documents and processes.

    Can I add [x] type of leave?

    Yes: Appogee Leave allows you to add, track and report on any type of leave in a fully digital environment, removing the need for physical documents in the absence tracking process.

    Is there a limit to how many types of leave we can track?

    No, there is no limit to the types of leave you can track. Many organisations track the usual types of leave as well as specific regional leave types.

    Will Appogee HR Essentials populate my calendar?

    Yes, the Appogee Leave functionality included in Essentials offers true calendar integration by automatically populating your calendar apps. This is in contrast with some other absence management software, which only generates iCal links that require manual calendar population.

    Can we set reports to run on schedules?

    Yes. Reporting is a crucial element of HR software, and Appogee HR Essentials contains a suite of powerful reporting tools which let you report on any type and combination of data your organisation collects. These reports can then be run on custom, automated schedules as well as being generated on an ad hoc basis.

    Where is our data stored?

    Our services use Google EU data centres to store our data, thanks to their use of cutting edge technology, and very high standards of security.

    Is our data secure?

    Yes: we believe that full trust in the security of your data is a fundamental part of choosing a digital HR system. That’s why we use data centres with the highest levels of digital and physical security, and the certifications to back this up (ISO 27001, ISO 27018 and audited to SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 and SOC 3 Type II standard).
    Full information about data security with Appogee can be found here.

    Is our data encrypted?

    Yes, data is encrypted both at rest and during transfer by Google Cloud Platform: the service on which our software operates. This means your data is fully encrypted when moving between our servers and your device, and between our servers and Google’s.

    Are your services environmentally friendly?

    Yes. We choose to work with Google Cloud Platform because of their strong commitments to reducing the environmental impact of their cloud services. As well as being carbon neutral today, Google Cloud Platform aims to be fully carbon free by 2030.

    Does your HR software have any hidden fees?

    No, our pricing page shows the price you will pay. There are no hidden fees or extras.

    Can we build custom functionality into your HR software?

    Yes. We understand that the needs of an organisation are unique and complex, and that there comes a point when out-of-the-box solutions no longer fit. That’s why we offer an API for custom integrations as well as our default integrations with Xero, Google Workspace, Microsoft 365 and other platforms.

    Is there an Appogee HR mobile app?

    Yes. You can download the Appogee HR mobile app on your Android or iOS device.

    Do we have to install anything?

    No, you just need to have a browser installed on your device. Appogee HR Essentials works with all major browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge and others.
