How it works
Leave tracking made simple. You and your employees can see at a glance what their current leave balance is, what they'll have accrued by the time their leave request rolls around, and what they'll have left when they return.
Get your employees' leave sorted on their behalf. If an employee can't enter their leave for any reason, their manager can jump in and sort it for them.
To help employers clearly show their payroll is compliant with the Holidays Act 2003, Smartly calculates annual leave in units of weeks.
Managers receive a notification whenever an employee applies for leave, and employees will be notified when their leave has been approved or declined.
Regional anniversary days are automatically added to your payroll. Choose the relevant regional anniversary days for your employees and it'll be automatically added to their pay when the anniversary rolls around.
In Smartly you can easily set up special leave types for your employees. These include; birthday leave, study leave, gardening leave, wellbeing leave and more.
Managers can easily add and edit leave for their employees from anywhere with the Smartly app.

Booking leave is simple with Smartly

Once an employee has entered the dates of their leave, they'll be able to see their future leave balance - giving them an idea of whether they'll have enough leave to submit this request. When they've submitted it'll go straight through to their manager to approve. Too easy!
