Premier ESS

Give your employees the tools to empower themselves

  • Unlimited employees and companies
  • Streamline HR processes
  • True paperless solution
  • Reduce time spent on leave processing and HR admin
  • Submit claims, overtime and leave online

VIP Premier Employee Self Service (ESS) streamlines your HR processes by giving your employees user-friendly tools to update their personal details, apply for leave, submit claims and overtime, do performance reviews and view payslips and IRP5s online. It reduces admin and gives you more time to focus on the important issues – like moving your business forward.

Make leave processing a piece of cake

This online module integrates with our Premier Payroll and Premier HR systems and cuts your capturing time by allowing your employees to apply for leave online. Capturing, approving and maintaining your employees’ leave becomes a streamlined, paperless process. It also lets you customise escalations of workflow items, reducing your company’s financial liability by improving leave management.

Protect your data with access control

Premier ESS enforces stringent, internationally accepted standards of access control to authenticate users. This means your data is always protected. For example, managers can access and update leave information for their department, whereas an employee sees how much leave they’ve taken and how much is left to take.

Looking for a total solution? You've got it

  • Combine Premier Payroll with Premier HR and Premier Employee Self Service (ESS) and you have a fully integrated HR management system
  • Extract reports from multiple sources with the Sage VIP Intelligence Reporting module
  • Integrate with a variety of accounting software and clock-card systems
