Offsite attendance bookings…

For users that work away from the office, ESS GO supports offsite attendance bookings where the user simply clicks a button when they start or stop work. There is a notepad feature for the user to provide more details about the booking and ESS GO also notes the GPS coordinate of each booking which integrates with the phone's mapping feature.
