Legal practice HR software that sets the precedent

Automate how you welcome your new hires with our employee onboarding software, rather than burdening your team with extra hours. You’ll also help familiarise new people with the rest of the team, and get them set up and ready to go from day one.

Our HR software helps employees more easily manage their compliance training, and lets them manage their absences without relying on you. You’ll be able to easily identify absence patterns, approve or decline team time off requests, and identify any potentially problematic absences.

Set the precedent for new starters and tenured team members alike. Give your people the platform to manage their HR admin tasks, and give HR more time to focus on what matters.
