Email-me! - This popular facility will instantly send an email to the individual’s personal email address containing, rota, hours worked and absence management information.


By creating an interactive framework that shares intelligence between the hardware, firmware and software, the ESS facility is not only able to act as a portal enabling access to key information, it now offers the ability for individuals to initiate requests and to confirm questions from terminal.

timeware’s highly developed scripting language is now flexible enough to enable leave requests to be made from the terminal, messages to be sent to individuals, confirmation of message reads to be sent back to management and it is even possible to create integration links to third party system so information from different sources appears seamlessly at one point.


ESS at the computer, tablet and mobile phone

Accessed via a web browser on PCs, tablets and mobile phones make the ESS available to even more of your workforce.

timeware® ESS – empowering your employees

As the workplace becomes increasingly diverse, it is not always practical for employees to ‘book’ at a conventional, wall mounted terminal. In these types of situations, timeware® ESS can be used to provide an extensive range of functions accessible from both your company intranet or directly from the internet.
