Overall Satisfaction with Frontline HCM (Aesop Online)

I use Frontline to help track upcoming absences and scheduling changes. Frontline helps manage when employees have days off by serving as a cohesive calendar from Human Resources to all employees at the organization. I also use Frontline to mark when I will be using vacation time, sick time, or other types of absences. This is then viewable to Human Resources and other administrators.
  • Absence management for administrators to view.
  • Scheduling for staff.
  • Viewable calendars for future planning.
  • No recurring schedules that can be added.
  • No integration with Google Calendar.
  • Absence management.
  • Substitute reporting.
  • Accurate calendars.
  • Frontline has made it easy to schedule substitutes, resulting in fewer vacancies during the school day.
  • Frontline keeps a balance of vacation and sick time, resulting in a more informed staff.
  • There have been very few complaints about time and absence management.
Frontline seems to be the industry standard for this software in the education industry. I am not familiar with any competitors or what was evaluated prior to implementing Frontline. For it to be the industry standard, I would assume that its cost is fair in relation to competitors and that the onboarding process is simple.

Frontline is great for making sure that absences are reported to management and Human Resources. It is helpful for scheduling subs to fill in, as well as seeing upcoming dates where employees do not have to come to work. Frontline is well-suited for an easy-to-use scheduling system. As it isn't a complex program, there isn't a lot that can go wrong with it. However, if you're looking for something more robust and with better integration with other platforms, you might want to look elsewhere.
