Holiday Scheduler Software by MTIS
Holiday Scheduler Software
MTIS Holiday Scheduler is a product used by hundreds of organisations; from small companies with around ten staff, right up to blue-chip companies, such as the National Blood Service, Gerling, Initial Hygiene, the RAC and Motorola. Many general practices use the product.
MTIS Holiday Scheduler allows Practices to monitor staff holidays, sickness and training. Which means managers can plan workload during holiday periods effectively.
It is extremely simple to use and requires no training. In addition to holidays, sickness and training, the user can allocate six other codes to monitor such things as maternity leave, jury service, secondment, etc. Monthly calendars give a clear indication of staff availability. Because of the visual impact it is easy to see patterns of absence.
Individual reports can be produced for each member of staff detailing holiday taken and booked, and any outstanding holiday. This is supported by individual calendars which show an individuals absences for a complete year on one page.
NHS Case Study : Hourly-based holidays
One development, specifically carried out for Parsons Heath Medical Practice, has been a scheduler with holidays allocated in hours. With many Practices operating with part-time staff and job sharing, some Practices allocate holidays in hours rather than days.
Practice Manager Jan Wood says: "Since we calculate holiday at our Practice in hours, it was difficult to find an off-the-shelf programme that did this. MTIS worked with us to develop an excellent solution that will save us a great deal of time when managing holiday, sickness and study leave."
This application, along with standard schedulers, can be downloaded and trialled free for seven days.
Purchasing is easy. Following a successful trial, the customer simply has to return to the website, quote a registration number and make payment. With prices starting at £40, the product soon pays for itself in saved administration time, not to mention control of unauthorised leave.
