Optis Streamlines the First Step in Absence Management – Releases New Edition of LeaveXpert(R) Self Service Portal

DENVER, Colo. (April 9, 2014) – Optis, a leading provider of people data services and cloud software solutions announced today that it has launched a new edition of the employee leave request self service portal within LeaveXpert, Optis’ leave and absence management solution.

LeaveXpert’s Self Service Portal streamlines the leave request process for both Human Resource departments and employees. Employees are able to login to LeaveXpert from anywhere that has an internet connection, request a leave of absence and provide key details of their leave to a Leave Specialist in the Human Resource Department – such as leave reason, first day of absence, and anticipated return to work date. The Leave Specialist is automatically notified of a new leave request via LeaveXpert, and can view all the leave detail information provided by the employee.

Creating a centralized process for requesting a leave of absence helps Human Resource departments collect important leave details in a streamlined way, and gives employees an accessible way to notify their HR department of their upcoming leave. By alleviating the administrative burden on the Human Resource department, the LeaveXpert Self Service Portal assists HR in managing employee absence and return to work efforts more efficiently, improving the bottom line of their business.

This new edition of the self service portal is built upon a new platform, giving system users an intuitive interface with more flexibility. Employees can also see prior leaves of absence they have requested. The Self Service Portal is offered with both Plus and Unlimited editions of LeaveXpert.

“Our mission is to help organizations better understand their people data and manage absence easier,” said Optis President, Archie Anderson. “We help those organizations solve big problems. Creating this simple and efficient way for our customers to enable their employees’ to submit their leave requests helps make managing the absence process easier.”
