Transitioning from Manual FMLA Tracking to a Cloud Solution: Part I

Step 1: Recognize the Problem

Top 10 Reasons to Track FMLA in the Cloud

  1. #Saynotospreadsheets and wave goodbye to sticky notes.

  2. Gain insight into absence trends.

  3. Manage accommodation requests & approvals.

  4. Track eligibility and certification documentation online instead of in paper files.

  5. Keep your data secure in the cloud instead of in a dusty file cabinet.
