Open source leave management software VS JOUROFF STARTER

Still called free software, open source leave software represents a category of software with open source code developed and maintained by a community of computer programmers.
The advantage of open source leave management software or free software is that access to advanced functions is not limited.
However, open source software involves relatively complex configuration.
Especially since the field of leave management requires taking into account the specific rules of the collective agreement for each sector of activity.
The freemium version of the leave software developed by Jouroff is admittedly limited in functionality, but it allows quick and easy handling.

The essential points in the digitization of paid leave
When we are interested in leave management software, we tend to prioritize ease of use in the field of taking leave and the validation that follows.
Even if these points remain important in daily use, there is another aspect to take into account, which is the adaptability of the leave software to your collective agreement. Among the points to analyze, we can cite :

Leave management integrating part-time or part-time employees
Our online HR software offers the possibility of prorating the number of days of paid leave acquired by the employee who works part-time.
But some companies can apply the general rule in which the system credits part-time employees with the same number of days of paid vacation as full-time employees...Then the adjustment of the vacation balance is done by the settlement system, when taking leave.
Management of paid leave in working day or working day mode.
Leave management with consideration of Meal Tickets. In this context, the leave software will retain one meal ticket per day of leave taken.
Leave management taking into account seniority rules. For example, automatic credit of 2 days for 5 years of seniority.
Note that the seniority rules must be defined in the leave management software, according to your collective agreement.
Leave management integrating leave rights visibility filters. For example, the ability to hide absences for part-time employees
Leave management taking into account the reference period. In the labor legislation in France, most often, paid leave are managed according to a period from June year-Y to May Y+1. This period is fully configurable and adjustable in the day off software.
Possibility of controlling the conditions for taking leave, namely debit balances or even requests for leave outside the legal period for taking leave.
Leave management with the inclusion of split days
Leave management including recovery days. Indeed, our leave management software allows the declaration of recovery days subject to validation by the HR Manager.

How to configure paid leave software ?

The company's paid leave calculation rules must be scrupulously configured in the leave software.
You must start by defining the number of days of leave to acquire per month or annually.
The leave tool also allows you to define the leave imputation counter, also called the leave taking counter.
The leave management software offers a user management area to define the conditions for applying paid leave according to the employee's contract.
Certain employees may or may not be eligible for Compensatory rest, depending on the nature of their employment contract. For example, in the case of a 35-hour contract benefiting from 5 weeks of paid leave, without compensatory rest
The configuration of the leave software is generally carried out by the software administrator during the implementation phase of the leave tool.
