SAM lets you know when triggers are hit.

Alerts for attendance triggers

No more manual calculating of absence records and having to keep an eye on the ones that are getting close to a trigger.

You can see at a glance if any employees have hit an absence trigger – SAM will flag it up and highlight them on the dashboard. You can choose from default triggers, the Bradford Factor formula or your own bespoke triggers. SAM will then prompt you to invite employees to an absence review meeting and give you all the documentation you need to manage absence cases more confidently from beginning to end.

Track sickness and leave of absence in a click.

Tracking absence is a breeze

With SAM importing data directly from SIMS (or any CSV file), all absence records are transferred securely and safely.

The SAM reporting suite enables you to quickly identify the reasons behind Sickness Absences and Leave of Absence (Paid or Unpaid, Authorised or Unauthorised) in order to spot trends and absence patterns, per type, per department, per line manager and per term. Year on year and termly comparison reports are also available.

After all, knowing why your staff are off is just as important as knowing when.
