Canterbury, Kent. October 16th 2012. WhosOff.com won the UK’s Software Satisfaction Award on October 11th, in the “HR and Human Capital Management – SME” category, for its globally used online staff leave planner, WhosOff.

Says Cross, “We are really proud to be flying the flag for Canterbury-based businesses and count local firms such as Motorline Group, Heritage Transport and Intake Engineering among our many users. In addition we were delighted to be on the winners’ rostrum alongside some of the biggest names in business-to-business software such as Salesforce, AVG and PostcodeAnywhere, among others.

“We’d like to thank all those customers who voted for us. It was their votes – for our excellence in customer service – that propelled us to the winning spot.”

Cross adds that while WhosOff.com is keen to mention its local customers and presence, the company also helps UK exports with its users in more than 40 countries around the world.

Users pay by monthly-based subscription and access WhosOff.com via laptop or desktop computers or by WhosOff’s mobile app for the iPhone and Android.

“WhosOff helps businesses reduce the time and money spent on paper-chasing staff leave requests around the office,” says Cross. “Users love it because it means they can forget about managing the mundane tasks of finding out how much holiday people have remaining, and when they’re off and when they’re not. WhosOff does it all for you, regardless of business sector.”
