Tackling the post-pandemic complexities using Ascent Leave and Attendance Management System (LAMS) – The IT Industry perspective

Post-pandemic, the IT industry has been especially juggling with multiple work scenarios. While employees have openly started asking for flexibility to work from anywhere, companies are looking to balance this with certain days in the office. Some large IT service companies have already asked for a complete return to office while some remain in transition. 

Irrespective of what your organisation decides for your workforce, Ascent Leave and Attendance Management System (LAMS) ensures all such scenarios are covered effectively.

Let us look at how Ascent Leave and Attendance Management System (LAMS) helps you build such various scenarios:

100% from Office- In this scenario, your employees may be tagged to a specific shift or shifts. Using Ascent LAMS you can create multiple shifts and roasters. Such shifts and roasters can then be assigned to employees or a logical group. These can also be changed dynamically. Our auto shift-detection feature ensures that the system is automatically able to tag employees to a shift based on their in and out time. All relevant shift rules are then applied to their attendance records. 

100% Remote- For such employees again depending on your organisational policies you can assign specific shifts or use auto shift detection. Employee login can happen via the web to determine their login and log-out times.

Hybrid- The most complex and dynamic scenarios. By utilising flexible and configurable features of the Ascent Leave and Attendance Management System, you can define specific days of the week as in the office. In such scenarios, the system will only consider attendance from specific biometric devices tagged to ensure seamless data flow between multiple systems. These roasters and shifts can be dynamic and either managers or employees can request such changes with custom approval workflows  

Using Ascent LAMS you not only get full control over your data but also are able to create role-specific views to ensure effective and efficient decision-making based on real-time data. Some of our features that help in this regard are:

1. Real-time calendar view- This allows employees and managers to know exactly how many employees are present and for how long. This information is vital for managing the day-to-day operations in the IT industry

2. Email approval- One of the most appreciated features of Ascent LAMS. This allows your busy managers to receive approval notifications on their email and approve with a single click without having to log in to Ascent LAMS. See it to believe it. 

3. Detailed reports- Since Ascent LAMS has been developed based on user feedback and designed to be highly configurable, you get all types of reports from the system. In the unlikely event of you need a specific report which is not available, the highly configurable nature of the system ensures such reports can be custom-built for your purposes. During our implementation process, we spend a great deal of time on this to ensure the system meets all your data needs. 

4. One Dashboard- We understand the importance of data visualisation and hence Ascent LAMS provides you with predefined dashboards. These are designed to give you a bird’s eye view of your leave and attendance data and enable you to make effective business decisions based on the same.
