PlanMyLeave has been a helpful tool for us. We have seen many improvements in the system over the course of the year that we have used PML, and are overall happy with the portal. The tool is easy to use. The reminder of the policy is useful. It is fairly user friendly for the HR team to manage. Our employees find it easy to navigate as well. The support is good. When we have question, they respond quickly and call to additional information, if necessary.
