Fabmin is perfect for businesses with 5 to 150+ staff

You don’t want complex or expensive HR software. But you are fed up with the hassle of paper holiday forms and your chaotic wall planner or nightmare spreadsheet.

It takes up far too much of your time. You just need something simple that gets the job done

So you and your staff can see who is off when. And so making and approving holidays requests is really quick and everything gets recorded accurately.

Fabmin will save you hours and hours — and your staff will enjoy using it too.

So nice not to have all the paperwork flying about!

Imagine how much easier your life will be

Imagine never having to file another holiday form.

You can ditch that fiddly spreadsheet or tear down the chaotic wall planner.

You’ll never have to answer that question again “How many days holiday have I got left?”.

No more holiday clashes — staff can see for themselves if there is enough cover in their team before they ask for time off.

And no calling reception to see if a meeting room is free.

Now you can manage staff leave the modern way

Requesting and approving holidays is fast — really fast

Step 1

Time off is requested using a simple form

It’s quick — we timed it — 32 seconds!

Works from anywhere — on mobiles and tablets too.

Step 2

An email lets the manager know that time off has been requested

The planner makes it easy to see who else may be off at the same time

Everything is recorded accurately and because everybody can see who is already off there a far fewer holiday clashes

And less hassle for you.

Hi Ben, I set Fabmin up for everyone yesterday afternoon and it was actually really easy. I don’t know what I was worrying about!

Two valuable extras for you

1 – A combined staff and shared contacts directory

At our office we record our Director’s mobile numbers, contact details for the guy that looks after our alarm system and our office supplies company. You know the sort of stuff that you can never find when you need it most.

2 – A dead simple system for booking shared resources

That’s meeting rooms, projectors, pool cars and so on – saves another job

This valuable new free feature is available upon request by email.

Manifest London were using a more complex system before moving to Fabmin

It sounds good, but is this going to be complicated?

We appreciate that changing the way things are done sometimes seems like more trouble than it’s worth.

But no, you don’t need to train anyone how to use Fabmin. They will get it as soon as they make their first holiday request.

We thought that email would never take off, that computers would never replace the typewriter and that mobile phones were never going to work. Don’t even get me started on the mangle and washing machine!

How wrong we were!

So,goodbye wall planner and blue tack stained walls. Let’s embrace the future.

Now that Fabmin is available to you, changing to Fabmin makes sense. It is simply a better, more up to date way of organising holidays, as well as any other time off and sickness too.

Your office is going to run like clockwork.
