Your employees are often your company’s greatest asset. Don’t let absence ruin this relationship.

The ‘Broken Windows’ theory implies crime and vandalism occurs in areas that people don’t care about. The same applies to absence management: are absences occurring in your workplace because of lack of attention from management?

Absence cannot be accounted for if it’s not being measured.

Absences can affect employee productivity, company morale, reporting line relationships and ultimately your company’s profitability.

That’s why you need Mitrefinch’s Employee Absence Management software.

This software keeps everyone informed in real-time, so you’ll know exactly what’s going on throughout your organization.

All the information collected can be collated into customizable reports allowing management to spot absence trends, identify problems and create solutions.

Absence that goes unaccounted will be detrimental for your company’s productivity.

With Mitrefinch Absence Management software you’re put back in control of the situation. You will be able to join the dots from productivity to profitability and understand how absence has affected both.

Here’s all you need to do to handle absence requests.

Step 1 – Request

With Mitrefinch there are no lengthy forms. Simply log in to the user-friendly interface and put in a request for absence. All leave types are displayed for fast selection

Step 2 – Authorization

An employee’s request is sent to an appropriate line manager. He or she can approve or decline the request.

Step 3 – Automatic System Update

If approved the software will update the system and deduct the leave days from the employee’s allowance.

Additional Benefit – Failsafe

Manual tasks can result in human error. With this software you’re guaranteed accurate and up to date employee records.

Mitrefinch software will block any requests that fall outside the parameters you set up for each employee. This prevents requests or mistaken approvals for absence that is not allowed. Most importantly, the system deals with it meaning time is saved.

Of course, there will be exceptional situations that arise from time to time, such as

  • Employees occasionally working from home. This means they don’t clock in at the office
  • Employees take too long to return after lunch
  • Planned work hours and actual hours don’t align
  • Travel time taking longer than planned


On Mitrefinch software these situations will be identified as anomalies. And you can handle them effortlessly.

Managers and employees can both view anomalies. This empowers you in two ways:

  • Employees can justify the anomaly and request it be approved.
  • Managers can view anomalies and identify whether it is a bad habit or an isolated incident and request clarification before deciding action.

This prevents unnecessary discussions and misunderstandings.


Reports empower managers to stay informed of anomalies and their impact. Our Absence Management Systems can create reports for the entire company, individual departments or specific employees.

With quality information you can take decisive action before the situation escalates.
