WhosOff Hits ¼ Million Holiday Requests

Wednesday, 08 Oct 2008

WhosOff.com, the Free online staff holiday/vacation planner, recently `processed` its 250,000th leave request.

Since its launch, less than 2 years ago, thousands of businesses and organisations have taken the opportunity to use WhosOff.com to manage their staff holiday/vacation and out of office times. Based in the quiet city of Canterbury, England - a world away from Silicon Valley - WhosOff.com is attracting users from over 75 countries around the world – an impressive start for an online service aimed at business users.

WhosOff.com allows staff to request holiday/vacation whilst applying simple initial controls, for example, checking the number of days a staff member has remaining or staff clashes, and can pass the logged request on by email for final approval by an appointed approver.

Project manager, Philip Cross said “Many companies have difficulty tracking staff holiday and WhosOff.com delivers an answer to this enduring problem for free. We have spent the last couple of years gathering feedback from our users helping us to keep the service simple yet providing great functionality”. In development from Whosoff.com is a paid-for ‘Premium’ service which is due to be launched in November 2008 . The premium version will provide users with added features and tools including integration with some desktop applications.
