Activ People HR

- because you need more than HR software

Our HR support team are the best in the business. Choosing the right cloud based HR software is important – and providing the right support after deployment is just as vital.

You will receive administrator training before deployment, but support from our people is ongoing. Our customers regularly praise the Activ People HR software support team, but just to ensure they remain on target, we do a customer survey every year – and the reviews are consistently good – like this one from our client Bootham School:

  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    John Davis, Future Steps Consultancy, Finance & Business Support Manager

    “As we expanded to 2 sites our paper annual leave system was causing consent problems and making tracking staff leave almost impossible. We needed a cost-effective web-based system, Activ Absence was recommended to us by a family member who had introduced it to his own company.
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Stuart Winfield, St Edmund’s College

    “We chose Activ Absence as we were after a holiday management system which would also deal with our requirements with sickness absence. Activ Absence was the only system which ticked all of our boxes and we are very happy with the system. The support is fantastic”
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Sharon OHara, School Business Manager, Wilkes Green Infant School

    Activ Absence has really helped the school reduce the staff sickness level. We like how the staff can monitor how many days they have been absent and how they can book their appointments and get them approved without struggling to find a time to see the head teacher.”

    Simon Vaughan, Programme Director in Information Services, Cardiff University

    “Activ Absence has been implemented to meet a diverse range of requirements across the University. We are very pleased with the flexibility of the product and the support we have received from Codel Software.”
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Nigel Oanea-Cram, Emmaus South Wales, Business Manager

    “Introducing Activ Absence into our charity has vastly improved our management of leave and sickness. The reporting tools allow us to analyse records at the click of a button. Activ Absence is a simple but comprehensive absence system that has vastly improved our recording and reporting of leave/sickness across the charity.”
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Adults Supporting Adults, Steve Johnson, Business Manager

    "As a medium sized charity we have found Activ Absence to be easy to operate and efficient to use, all our staff have found it straight forward and we have had good support. Our holiday periods are also individual to each staff member (date of leave year) and this is the only system we found that could cope with this"
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Care and Repair- Heather Dungey Corporate Service Manager

    “We’ve been looking to get away from recoding leave and absence on paper and spreadsheets for some time.  We’d previously brought in a HR system but soon after found out that it wasn’t as straight forward as originally thought, so when we came across Activ Absence we could see it was the solution we’d been looking for"
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Paula Cahill, Worldwide Cancer Research HR & Admin Manager

    Activ Absence is enabling us to implement our absence policies in a paper free environment; it allows us to manage all leave bookings and staff sickness through a modern, easy to use web interface. The ability to have access to staff leave and absence records even when working remotely is an invaluable asset to the association. We have used Activ Absence for the past 5/6 years. 
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Gwilym Elis Jones, Chief Executive, Cynnal

    “Adopting Activ Absence has allowed us to have a totally paperless system for submitting and approving holiday and time off requests, for reporting staff absences and informing team members, and for updating staff of their annual leave entitlement. We also make use of the Return to Work function, and use the reports for monitoring absence levels and receiving alerts of trigger points. Staff have easily taken to the system, and team leaders are better informed of staff availability and planned absences.
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Pam Davies, Chief Executive Officer, Age UK Hull

    We had been investigating leave management systems for a few months before contacting Codel regarding the Activ Absence system. From that initial contact, the support and service we have received has been second to none! The system fits our needs as a charity based across two sites with most staff working part time hours. It is easy to use and feedback from both staff and management has been really good, with people commenting on how easy it is to use."
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Natasha Burling, HR Advisor, Charles Stanley Stockbrokers

    “When looking to implement an absence management system we struggled to find a provider who would be able to customise a system entirely to our needs. Activ People HR managed to give us a system that would be intuitive for our employees and give the HR team a base from which to start actively monitoring absence and the impact on business. The implementation was seamless and the on-going support they provide is first class.”
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Gwilym Hughes, Jehu Group, HR Strategic Business Manager

    "“One of our 'HR challenges' for the business is the geographically dispersed nature of our workforce.  We have mobile groups of employees working on projects all over South Wales and sometimes beyond.  We needed an easy to understand, intuitive absence management system that our 150 employees could access wherever they were."
  • Client testimonial logo cloud background image

    Natasha Robertson, Aitchison Rafferty (Chartered Surveyors)

    “Activ Absence is user friendly, easy to get around even from an administrators point of view. I love the fact that the helpdesk are there to help - they are very efficient and helpful. There isn't anything about the system I don't like! I would definitely recommend the system. I also like the fact that there are guidelines if I’m not too sure or cannot remember how to do something.”
