CakeHR is a HR app that combines time off management and a shared calendar, with employee self-service and advanced reporting. CakeHR is predominantly focused on time management, automating the time-off request and approval process for both employees and managers.
Through CakeHR, employees can access and view all their leave information on a shared calendar and send leave requests from any device. The calendar in CakeHR syncs with iCal, Google Calendar, and MS Outlook. Managers are then alerted of these requests and can decline or approve them. They can also access historical data on employee time off.
In addition to leave management, CakeHR acts as a single platform to centralize all employee data, documents, and files in one location, giving you the option to share these with your employees. The HR app also offers graphical reports that show insights on key metrics such as employee growth, or time off stats.Show more screenshots »
CakeHR was created by Mosties! Of London, a digital production services firm that provides technical development and design services. Mosties! developed the app to solve their own employee time off issues, making the app super-intuitive.
CakeHR stands out from the crowd of comprehensive, feature-rich HR apps in it’s simplicity and narrow focus. The app is dedicated to reducing the workload of HR managers by simplifying the potentially tedious and time consuming task of managing employee time off requests, recording absences, and accessing historical time off data - and because the app is focused keenly on one aspect of HR, it does so with skill and expertise.
