How does TeamSeer work?

Each member of your staff has their own unique log-in identity.  To book their leave, they visit their TeamSeer account, which displays their own personal online ‘wall-planner’.  They can see at a glance what their holiday entitlement is, how many days they have left, and even when their colleagues are out of the office.  When they make a request for leave, TeamSeer sends an automatic email to the line manager or HR for approval. All it takes is one click of the mouse to approve or decline the application.  What could be simpler?

“TeamSeer is a powerful and valuable tool which has helped us manage attendance. Having used it I wouldn’t want to revert back to paper based systems.”
Steffan Roberts, Services and Human Resources Director, Garden Court Chambers

Full reporting with live data

When you need to understand your staff absence levels, TeamSeer will generate your reports in seconds.  If you need an absenteeism review, the built-in Bradford Factor calculator will do the work for you.

TeamSeer Integration

TeamSeer integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Outlook, and can also be used with Blackberries, iPhones and their equivalents, making it ideal for companies with staff who work from home or who spend time out of the office.

Whats more, TeamSeer isn’t just for recording holidays and annual leave, it also manages your staff’s sick leave, training days and any other period of absence at a few clicks of your mouse.  Prepare to be impressed when you see it for yourself!

Visit MAD this weekend

Visit MAD this weekend

As we all know, there’s a huge amount of very valuable free information available on the Internet.  One of the most useful we found was a free blogging e-course from expert Mark White of Better Business Blogging.  Without this, we probably would still just be talking about setting up a blog.  Instead of which our blogs are now valuable Internet marketing tools which increase awareness and traffic to our websites. 

This morning, I received an email from Mark, asking for our help in promoting a ‘MAD’ (Music, Arts, Dance and Drama) weekend for all the family at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire on 26th & 27th June.  Mark set up the Manor’s blog and is, voluntarily, helping to promote the event.  So having made good use of Mark’s free advice, we were only too pleased to help.  There’s nothing like a bit of viral marketing to spread the word! 

‘MAD’ looks like being a brilliant weekend for all the family with something for everyone.  There are workshops and performances going on throughout both Saturday and Sunday.  Saturday night features a fundraising concert: ‘Music at the Manor – ‘A Night with the King & Queen‘ – tribute performances to Elvis and Queen!   From Romeo and Juliet to children’s choirs and Street Dance workshops, it’s going to be an action-packed weekend. 

Why not visit the Waddesdon Manor MAD website and check out what’s going on this weekend.  With the Met Office promising us some fine weather, what better way to enjoy the sunshine than enjoying this great introduction to the performing arts? 

As a final note, Mark White is offering a free ½ hour of blog coaching to 10 lucky people who help him promote the event.  You can blog about it, post a ‘Tweet’, mention it in forums or add something to your website.  Just let Mark know by email what you have posted and where.  Your name will be entered into a draw to select the winners.  If you need further information, links or logos, I’m sure Mark will be pleased to help.
