“We had a manual paper-based system for staff management tasks such as managing employee records, leave and sickness and employee appraisals, which was challenging and time consuming to manage across the organisation. Without dedicated HR resource for the project, we needed a solution that not only saved us time; but was also quick and simple to implement.

iDocuments delivered just that, with a system that gave us a centralised employee database with automated workforce request and approval processes, with our own rules and policies built-in. 

We can now record, track and approve events, such as staff leave and absence in a consistent way. Importantly for our staff, automatic triggers for events such as staff appraisals, means we minimise the risk of them being delayed or even missed altogether.


Our employees are now more engaged, having ownership and visibility of their personal records and senior staff has visibility of the data they need for effective line-management and to help inform strategic decision-making.”
