Paycom launches GONE, automating time-off request decisions

OKLAHOMA CITY – (Dec. 5, 2023)Paycom Software, Inc. (NYSE:PAYC) (“Paycom”), a leading provider of comprehensive, cloud-based human capital management software, announced the launch of its next step in automation, GONE®, a feature that facilitates decision-making for time-off requests. Businesses can now automate time-off decisions to best fit their needs using a customizable decision engine for time-off approval and denial, including staffing needs, consecutive days requested, individual employee hours worked, level of seniority and more.

Through enhanced automation, GONE standardizes time-off management with policy-compliant decisioning designed to ensure fairness, timeliness and regulatory compliance. For businesses and their employees, GONE helps eliminate:

  • waiting on or tracking down time-off decisions
  • updating incorrect time-off information for payroll
  • losing employees’ trust due to time-off guidelines being unclear or unfair
  • being understaffed because of poor time-off management and
  • unapproving time-off approval or mediating time-off denial disputes.

“GONE is the next step in workplace efficiency, eliminating the hassle that outdated processes and time-tracking technology create,” said Chad Richison, founder, chairman and CEO of Paycom. “Today, businesses typically make between 20 and 30 decisions per year, per employee on time-off requests and the denials or approvals that go into staffing decisions. GONE replaces those interaction points, providing a consistent experience for employees, and ensures business continuity.”

For businesses and managers, inconsistent time-off management can cause staffing shortages and payroll inaccuracies, as well as impact workplace culture. To reduce risk and liability surrounding staffing and policy enforcement, GONE looks at the needs of businesses and standardizes decisions. What’s more, businesses can avoid the costly consequences of coverage gaps that are detrimental to both the bottom line and employee morale.

Each manual time-off review or approval can cost a company an average of $11.22 in labor, according to a November 2023 Ernst & Young study commissioned by Paycom. GONE vastly reduces this expense along with time-consuming organizational tasks that frequently fall on managers and directors.
