With Sapien’s advanced workflow engine ‘managing’ absence or PTO no longer has to be a ‘job’. Workflow is associated with business rules that can trigger events, to help ensure that processes are completed on time. For example, simply entering a sickness absence could start a workflow to remind the employee, and the HR department, that a certificate is needed. A holiday request that remains unanswered for a specified period of time can be automatically routed to another approver. From now on you can let the system ‘manage’ the process for you!
