What is the best PTO tracker?

PTO tracking systems ensure that all employees are treated the same. They centralizes PTO information for administrators. They provide a formal way for employees to request time off. And employees can check their accruals at any time. The best PTO trackers sync with time and attendance. You customize the settings according to your policy. As employees clock in and clock out, work time accumulates. The system calculates PTO based on recorded time.

It’s more complicated for employers to administer traditional leave. Traditional leave typically takes more time to administer. It also may encourage workers to come to work sick or take unscheduled leave—situations that cause further workforce disruption.
