What can you use the app for?

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.
