Ento is a cloud-based employee scheduling, leave/vacation, attendance and communication software. Ento integrates with leading HR, payroll and POS systems and harnesses facial-recognition technology within their unique tablet-based time clock.
In short, Ento provides a workforce management system that’s easy to use, yet powerful enough for some of the biggest brands around town.
Spend less time scheduling employees
Add shifts in seconds. Even the most complex costing rules are calculated instantly. Automatically send employees an SMS or email with their shifts and have them reply to acknowledge – so you get extra peace of mind.
Build schedules quickly and easily
Save time by creating each schedule from scratch or a template. Drag-and-drop shifts around and let the system calculate your all-important labor costs and warnings. You can add notes to convey those extra little details.
Fine tune using multiple views
Switch between a number of available views to make sure you have your bases covered and shifts evenly distributed across your employees. Put your schedule under the microscope and plan breaks with Day view.
Next generation Time Clock
The Time Clock can run on any computer or tablet. It lets your employees clock in or out using a quick photo or PIN. You can also check at a glance to see who’s late, who’s on break and who should’ve gone home. It also works offline.
Phone, tablet and web apps
Every employee can access the Employee app via their phone, tablet or computer. From here, they can check and acknowledge shifts, request unavailability, participate in discussions, download files you’ve shared and much more.
Let employees arrange changes
Save time by letting your employees arrange their own shift changes. Requests are pre-checked by the system to ensure compatibility before being sent to you for approval, then back to the employees for confirmation.
Stay on top of everyone’s time off
Understanding and managing when your employee can’t work is equally important as managing the time they can. From the vacation requests of your full- and part-time employees, to the ever-changing unavailability of your casuals, everything is covered.
Leave/vacation requests and accruals with ease
Correctly managing requests, approvals, accruals and deductions of leave/vacation hours is tricky business. Ento built all the tools you need to handle the full lifecycle of leave/vacations – from the initial request via the employee app to the export into payroll.
Harness SMS and email communication
With the choice of distributing shifts via SMS and/or email, your employees will always have a record of their upcoming shifts and recent changes handy, even when they’re offline. More importantly, no more calls.
No more missed shifts
Afraid your ‘casual’ employees are going to forget about their shifts? Automatically send them shift reminders 24 hours before each shift and sleep easy knowing everyone’s going to turn up.
Real-time cost reports and insights
Give management access to a suite of real-time reports that they can make truly informed decisions with. Easily build and share the custom reports most useful to your business.
Set your own reporting hierarchy
Configure up to five levels of management and reporting hierarchy within your account. Once set up, managers will only have access to the level of data you’ve defined and all reports will become instantly filterable.
