Attendance Management Solutions – the consistent and easy to use notification system accessible from any telephone. Check out our options and features included.


Managing Absenteeism

Absenteeism has an enormous impact on productivity. Managing absenteeism is a challenge to every enterprise: public and private. Communication and consistent consequences are two keys to managing absenteeism. Communication begins with clear processes and continues with technology to help employees notify their management or clients when they will unexpectedly be tardy or absent. Consequences begin with agreed-upon standards of attendance and consistent enforcement without surprises.

Our Services

The Cagrus Attendance Management Solutions are used by clients of all sizes. We use a versatile hosted Interactive Voice Response (IVR) infrastructure to provide information to your community members 24 hours a day.

Our Hosted Solution puts the communication features at your disposal in the matter of a few weeks. The technology is maintained by Cagrus, with no installation or capital investment required. Use the standard features or contact a Cagrus implementation specialist to discuss integrating with your business systems.

Our Enterprise Solution gives you the greatest flexibility in absenteeism management practices. Cagrus implementation specialists work with you to design the details of your corporate site implementation, from business rules through technology implications.

Attendance Management Solutions = Cost Savings

According to a recent Mercer study the combined costs of incidental and extended absences can add up to 9% of annual payroll. That same study showed that unplanned absences account for account for a 19% loss of productivity while planned absences yield a smaller 13% loss with 16% for extended absences.

Let Cagrus minimize your productivity losses with real time notifications that facilitate staff planning. AMS is a tool that allows more effective staffing that increases productivity while reducing administrative, overtime and other personnel-related costs.

Ease of Use and Reporting

An employee simply uses any touch-tone telephone to call into the Absence Management System – similar to ordering a prescription. The Absence Management System immediately updates the website and instantly sends absence notifications to all notification lists for the employee along with any Return to Work forms to Human Resources completely filled in.
