Greyhound Recycling replace paper system for accurate leave recording

Thomas Slatery, Systems Administrator at Greyhound Recycling, explains why he choose Appogee Leave.

Greyhound Recycling are the leading domestic waste collection service provider in Ireland. With over 20 year’s industry experience and over 350 staff, they are going from strength to strength with continued expansion throughout the country.

The Challenge

Shortly after setting up Google Apps, Greyhound Recycling wanted an App to improve the way that they managed their employee absence.

“We were using a paper system to do this, which was not accurate.” explains Thomas Slatery, Systems Administer at Greyhound Recycling, “It was very hard to use holiday forms for each member of staff, often staff had to have more than one as the original had been misplaced”. Beyond simply the inconvenience of using forms, “The risk was loss of productivity and earnings as employees may or may not have been getting more holidays than they should”

The Solution

Appogee Leave provides a simple way to manage employee absence without the need for forms. Not only does this save paper but it also saves time for both employees and approvers. Appogee Leave is integrated with Google Apps so is always instantly available from the Universal Navigation bar. A leave request can be created in seconds and an approved just as quickly. Appogee Leave offers a fully automated system so every step of the approval process is logged within the system and an employee’s holiday allowance is dynamically updated accordingly. No missing forms, and no mistakes over holiday allowance!

The Result

“We’ve not measured the impact as such but its good , Payroll and HR love it!”
