Sage VIP Employee Self Service
The system that gives your employees the tools to empower themselves
Premier Employee Self Service (ESS) streamlines your HR processes by giving your employees user-friendly tools to update their personal details, apply for leave, submit claims and overtime, do performance reviews and view payslips online. It reduces admin and gives you more time to focus on the important issues – like moving your business forward.
Making leave-processing a piece of cake
Because this online module integrates with our Premier Payroll and Premier HR systems, it cuts your capturing time by allowing your employees to apply for leave online. Capturing, approving and maintaining your employees’ leave becomes a streamlined, paperless process.
It also lets you customise escalations of workflow items, reducing your company’s financial liability by improving leave management.
But just as it lets the right people in, it keeps the wrong people out
Premier ESS enforces stringent, internationally accepted standards of access control to authenticate users.
This means your data is always protected. For example, managers can access and update leave information for their department, whereas an employee sees how much leave they’ve taken and how much is left to take.
