Montreal, Canada, November 30, 2010 — Presagia, a developer of web-based solutions for workforce health and absence management, today announced the release of Presagia Enterprise Version 3.10, with significant enhancements to its Leave Module. Version 3.10 improves the core functionality of the Leave Module in two significant ways: updates to over 300 State Leave Rules across the 50 US states and District of Columbia, and Employee and Manager Self-Service. These strengthen Presagia’s already robust solution which customers can utilize as a single-source for efficient leave administration.
Administering leave policies in a consistent and equitable manner across a workforce is a challenge for employers. This is compounded by continually changing state leave regulations. “We recognized early-on when building our solution that a major issue for leave managers is keeping up-to-date on changes to state leave policies and adjusting their processes accordingly,” explains Geoff Simpson, Director of Marketing. “Following a traditional leave management approach of sticky notes and spreadsheets makes this next to impossible.”
Presagia works with numerous sources, including the national employment law firm Jackson Lewis, to stay abreast of changes in federal and state leave legislation and understand their impact on existing leave processes. Presagia then configures the changes in the sophisticated leave rules engine that drives the solution’s best-practice workflows. Providing this to our customers ensures they are following efficient leave processes based on the latest regulatory requirements. As well, it offers leave managers decision-support at critical moments, enabling them to make better decisions and spend more time focused on actual leave administration.
Another issue with traditional leave management has been poor engagement of two key stakeholders — employees and their managers. The new Employee and Manager Self-Service portals respond to this by providing them access to the tools and decision support they need to successfully collaborate in leave processes. Employees can view their leave history, request a leave, and upload their leave certification documents. Managers can enter leave requests for their employees, upload leave documentation, and view leave reports and dashboards that support scheduling and staffing decisions. The result of engaging employees and managers in leave management can be reductions in HR administration, improved workforce planning, and expedited leave processes.
“Our goal at Presagia is to consistently strengthen our leave management solution with features that enable customers to reduce the cost, lost-workdays and compliance issues associated with employee leave,” states David Glickman, CEO. “The new functionality available in Version 3.10 further demonstrates our commitment to providing the most sophisticated and efficient solution available on the market.”
