TimeOut Overview

What is TimeOut?

CWS Software offers TimeOut, a web based absence management solution that can also be installed on in-house servers. The solution is available either as a part of The Unity Suite Core HRIS or it can be purchased independently. TimeOut is primarily designed for SMBs and some of its key clients include Omron, Fuse, benefit Concepts, Texas AFT, TriNet Ambrose and so on.

TimeOut allows employees to request and view their time off through a color-coded matrix that is different for each individual. This matrix displays the vacation, holidays or personal days off that have been requested by the employee. A summary screen provides a configurable snapshot of the current leave balance and allows users to send leave requests for manager approval. Alerts are sent to managers if the requested leave is more than what the employee has earned.

TimeOut is available in multiple languages for global users and can integrate with Apple iCal, Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook. The solution offers a TimeTracker module that allows an organization to plan their staffing and track the total hours spent on a particular project which might impact the overall billing.

TimeOut integrates with the existing HRIS or payroll solution of the organization which smoothens the transition and implementation process. The solution offers a mobile interface that can be opened on various browsers and device types. For hosted solutions, CWS offers a full backup performed periodically in order to secure the data at a separate geographic location.

Experience has streamlined my store

Great Product

TimeOut was the first system that our company used to track PTO beyond excel and email. It was a game changer in terms of company visability, auditing of records, and reliability.

TimeOut is an effective way to remind me how much personal time I have left.

TimeOut was the first system that our company used to track PTO beyond excel and email. It was a game changer in terms of company visability, auditing of records, and reliability.

Pros

The access for all employees, the mobile app, the flexibility of the system to have multiple types of days out, and the integration with Outlook.

Cons

There were a couple of things that were laborious, like black out dates, etc. To override you had to change the date and add the black out days, instead of allowing an admin override. In addition, for some reason, it did not flag when employee PTO requests would put them in the red.

Pros

I like that there are several options to select to on any given day where I need to insert a request (e.g. sick day, personal day, vacation day, work remotely, etc.). I like the high level table that shows how much time was accrued and how much time remains.

Cons

I think it is extremely counter intuitive that you cannot click on a day and insert a request. The first time I used this software it took me a long time to realize that I had to click in the top left corner in order to submit a request. I kept trying to double click the day on the calendar. I was with several colleagues and we all had this problem.

Pros

We started using Unity Suite in late 2014 and have not complaints. It is flexible, easy to use and very robust system! We had some customization done to our reports to make it easy for the group and it was in a matter of minutes by their team. Customer service and responsiveness from sales to support was at the same level. Support team was equally helpful, courteous, understanding of our needs at all time. Staff members are very professional and amazing to deal with.

Cons

There are ZERO cons in our experience with the product or the team. We have not experienced anything negative with the time off work product or the team.
