Manage leave accurately, transparently, and with more flexibility
Manage leave accurately, transparently, and with more flexibility
DATABASICS Leave Management is an employee absence management system designed to work in the real world. This mobile, global online solution not only accommodates your rules but has the flexibility to accommodate the kind of one-off situations that inevitably arise.
Employee absence management system to keep the process simple
- Flexible Accrual Methods: Methods for accruing leave vary across an enterprise. Business unit, pay period, position, years of service—many variables are typically taken into account in accruing leave. Certain employees may even have personalized methods. DATABASICS Absence Leave Management is best-of-breed software that accommodates the full breadth of your leave variations including granting and taking of Comp Time.
- Request for Leave with Approval Workflow: Need to coordinate the leave of teams and work groups? Know leave balances before granting leave? Be able to control leave “advances”? Validate leave against prior approvals? With DATABASICS Absence Leave Management, employees can plan their time-off and supervisors can schedule leave to minimize the impact of absences. What’s more, while the employee is away, web-based timesheets can still be automatically generated and submitted.
- Configurable Carry-over Rules: Carry-over rules often have as many variants in an organization as accruals and are far more prone to exceptions—surrendering earned leave is always a sensitive subject. DATABASICS Absence Leave Management is designed to provide full transparency and control of carry-over policy administration.
- Administrator Overrides with Full Audit Trail: No set of automated rules can encompass all the situations that arise in Human Resource management. What happens in the case of ‘one-offs”? Administrators will no longer have to keep separate spreadsheets. They can make changes to the leave balances of individual employees with complete audit visibility.
- Comprehensive Reporting: With DATABASICS Leave Management, employees see the rules & policies with up-to-date balances, supervisors have a clear view of resource availability, and administrators can evaluate policies, analyze leave patterns, and can be confident that necessary internal controls are in place.
- Easy Transition: Our DATABASICS Professional Services team has the experience and tools to make moving over from your current process as straightforward, fast, efficient, and accurate as possible.
Uncover employee leave data with robust reporting.
Gain real-time visibility into rules & policies with up-to-date balances, resource availability, analyze policies and leave patterns while knowing internal controls are in place.
“Our organization works with a number of government contracts in which we are required to be compliant in time & expense reporting. DATABASICS was chosen to replace our time & expense reporting systems, for it’s ease of use and DCAA compliancy. Given the complexity of our accounting & project systems, in which Time & Expense had to interface, the DATABASICS staff utilized their extensive knowledge and were able to provide us with a smooth implementation. Not only did Time & Expense prove easy to use for our staff, but it also helped us save time & money through streamlining our processes.”
Terri Barlage, Accounting Manager, TechSolve, Inc.
“We have been using Expense since 2003; it has proven time and time again to be an invaluable tool for us. It has significantly reduced our expense report processing time for both the end user and accounts payable. It integrated very easily into our accounting system therefore eliminating all manual entry. As a holdings company and government contractor we have a very complex general ledger structure, we have inter-company transactions and very specific policies and procedures that must be enforced. The DATABASICS’ staff has taken the time to understand our business requirements in order to maximize our investment and as a result they have been able to anticipate potential issues before they become a problem. Their support team is one of the most responsive and pleasant that I have ever worked with.”
Sharon Wade, Accounting Operations Director, SMS Holdings Corp.
“Both Time and Expense are highly scalable software solutions. We integrated Expense with Microsoft Dynamics AX Accounts Payable module, the result not only that eliminate the previous duplicate data entry processes, it also improve 100% of data accuracy.

The consulting services provided by DATABASICS are outstanding, with our aggressive implementation schedule, the high degree of professionalism and devotion to duty of DATABASICS’ consultant helps us to complete the project on time and within budget, this certainly brings great value to our company.”

“I have personally been working with DATABASICS for several years now; the customer service is always right on target. The DATABASICS staff has always been helpful and responsive to my needs and needs of my company. We have tried using different time tracking systems over the last year for others of our clients, one example is a time tracking company called ‘Peoplenet’. They just do not compare to DATABASICS and what the staff and team support.”
Thomas A McGehee, Network Administrator, iSymphony
“Wanted to take the time to thank everyone at DATABASICS for all their hard working in getting us updated to V5. We’ve been using Time and Expense since 2005. And as usual, we received great help and support. We have several customization in our Solomon database that requires a little bit more effort, but were handled with precision. …. In additions to the upgrade this year, we moved our server, to be hosted by DATABASICS. The transition was seamless. We are delighted with the new look and feel of V5. I personally am delight to be working with Time and Expense. With having employees across the US and several in Europe, it makes my job easier and more efficient. Thanks!”
Darcy Kooman, Staff Accountant, Stellar Solutions
“In 2004, our organization began utilizing DATABASICS Time module to minimize the manual process of payroll and to accurately track project salary activity. The Time system has greatly reduced the amount of time our accounting team spends on our payroll process and has increased our productivity when reporting specific project activity for our annual audits. In 2007, our organization underwent a merger, which required our accounting team to reshape the methodology of our Time system within a very short deadline. Our DATABASICS consultant provided us support beyond normal business hours allowing us to meet our deadline and the new requirements of our organization.”
Tammy Hancock, Senior Accounting Manager, Consortium for Ocean Leadership
“Time is great, it was easy to configure to meet our structure, and allowed us to standardize our project reporting. As a project management tool, it is very flexible and useful. We love it. We live by it.”

“DATABASICS ExpenSite has proven to be a true end-to-end solution in reporting our travel expenses. Not only is it Sarbanes-Oxley compliant, it helps us better manage per diems and ultimate charge-backs for government cost-reimburseable contract work. The ease in which an end-user can pre-populate his/her expense from the credit card site, split charges among separate work/job orders greatly improves reporting efficiencies. Line item reporting also clearly identifies where your dollars are being spent along with the ability to drill down into customized categories. The ability to interface with existing in-house employee software further streamlines the travel expense process and allows ease in adding new travelers to the system.”
Kathy Hall-Zientek, CCTE, CTC, Manager, Travel Services, Moog, Inc.
“We found the DATABASICS Core Training very beneficial in getting the system up and running.

Michael Thornton, Pilot Catastrophe Finance
“We went live with DATABASICS Time and Expense in October. We used ADP EzLabor for Times Entry and Concur for electronic expenses. Employees have commented on how user friendly DATABASICS Time and Expense system comparing to ADP Time and Concur Expense. DATABASICS was very supportive during our implementation. We were going through a transition at our organization and DATABASICS tried to make it as smooth as possible for us. The project manager working with us was wonderful and was able to adapt to turnover of project managers on our end. Thanks so much for hanging in there through the process. ”
Michelle B. Kutchi, Assistant Director Finance, American Academy of Physician Assistants, USA

DATABASICS Expense is easy to use, and the workflows and email alerts allow our employees to track the status of their reports at all stages of the approval process.

Michael Harpenau Sr. Project Manager, IT, ABB, Inc.
“DATABASICS is a wonderful program for any company. When we were beginning our search for a company that offers both time and expense, DATABASICS surpassed the other company, Concur with its easy to use program. Since our company just went public, we now must be “Sox Compliant.” It is a relief to know that DATABASICS is already compliant. Anytime I have had a question/concern, the staff has been wonderful in helping me understand the situation and what we can do to improve our system. DATABASICS Expense (ExpenSite) is very flexible to conforming to our needs and this has been greatly appreciated as the company has been ever-changing. DATABASICS Time (TimeSite) is very user friendly and we have received positive feedback from the employees. For our budget, DATABASICS is a win all around!!”

“We’ve been using DATABASICS for four years now and we’ve become really big fans of Time & Expense site. We used to have a combination of different software applications and paper forms for our PC, but our old system was just too rigid. I have been very impressed with DATABASICS support service, their commitment and high level of service. They respond very quickly to my requests for assistance. I generally receive a phone call within a matter of minutes of sending a message to them and the problem is generally resolved soon after. DATABASICS works well across all of our platforms and takes the chore out of timekeeping, freeing us up to focus on our clients’ work. It’s accurate, intuitive and flexible! Now we’re able to perform real-time project estimates. We’re glad to have a system in place to ensure that time entry is done right.”
Tracey D. Clark, Accounting Manager, ATSSA
“The main reason we chose DATABASICS was for the product’s ease of use. With almost 2,000 employees, it is critical that we provide our people with software that is easy to learn and intuitive so it can be rolled out with minimal training. DATABASICS flexibility and international capabilities were also key factors in our decision, as well as their integration to our ERP system. DATABASICS was the best all-around decision for PRA Health Sciences.”
Jeannie Inge, Product Manager for Business Systems, PRA Health Sciences
“During the 5 years we have been using DATABASICS, we implemented a new accounting system that changed our general ledger structure to one that was more complicated, yet DATABASICS configured the application logic to fit our needs. The Application Consultant along with the DATABASICS’ support and customer service staff assigned to our company worked with us throughout the process from start to finish. Early spring of 2010 we began using V5 which imports our GL and WBS extract file and offers ACH direct deposit reimbursement for expense reports. Our employees love the timely reimbursement the ACH processing offers.”
Sue Voorhies, Sr. Representative – Finance, L-3 Communications Corporation, USA
