Case Study: Abatec Recruitment

Case Study with Abatec

Welcome to the next in our series of customer case studies, giving you an insight into how The Holiday Tracker has helped companies around the UK simplify managing their annual leave and absence. In their own words.

This month we have Phil Davies from Abatec.

1. Could you give us a brief summary of the business, how many people you employ and your role within the business?

We are a technical recruitment agency who will be celebrating 30th anniversary next year. We are a team of 32 who serve clients with both temporary and permanent staff, mainly in Engineering and Construction.  We’ve placed over 10,000 temporary workers and helped find approximately 2,800 permanent jobs over 54 current, active clients.  We presently payroll approximately 300 people per week.  I am the Managing Director

2. How long have you been using The Holiday Tracker, how were you managing annual leave beforehand and why did you change?

We have been using The Holiday Tracker for almost 2 years, I’m embarrassed to say we had an attendance sheet and holiday chart before we used Tracker. We needed to have something better and having found Holiday Tracker on the internet and don’t know how we managed beforehand.

3. What do you love best about The Holiday Tracker?

There’s lots I like about The Holiday Tracker, from the ease of use on the PC and even on my mobile, I can see who is in which makes planning meetings and cover simple.  The control and visibility it gives me makes managing annual leave easy.
