Productivity increases if all employees know who is at work and who is absent. It makes a difference if vacation planning is transparent and integrated into the general planning and communication platform of the company.
In 2013 BitaBIZ was fully integrated with Microsoft Exchange / Outlook. With this integration leave and absence, status is automatically synchronized from BitaBIZ to the employees Outlook, Skype for business and Teams client. On average BitaBIZ updates the unified communication platform with +50 Out of Office days per employee per year. This gives BitaBIZ customers a much better sharing of availability status when compared to companies that manage availability status in separate systems that are not integrated.
A shared leave and absence planning calendar can also be added to Google cal, iCalendar, Jira calendar, etc.
