The Future of Leave & Attendance Management! With AI-backed Conversational Technology: HONO

We have always taken pride in our ability to anticipate what the HR and business needs will be, to pinpoint what is beginning to ail workforces, and to build into our HONO full-suite HRMS, modules and abilities that are increasingly simple to use (even if they are backed by complex future-ready technologies) and simpler to deploy.

Read our blog on leave and attendance management system.

Thus, augmenting our core value pillars of an AI-backed platform (which becomes the single source of truth) and execution excellence (tailor-made, one-size-fits-one) is our Conversational Technology, with an intuitive Voice and chat Interface, deployed over the most popular chat services used (WhatsApp).

This ‘conversational technology’ elevates user experience from the traditional UI and app-based interactions to a more intuitive and more human interaction (albeit with an advanced bot).

Besides being an easy-to-execute system interface (imagine delivering an HRMS over easy chat), this solves the huge challenge of employee complacence or inertia (‘Do I have to fill that form to apply for leave? Can’t you just find it for me? Another process?) by working like the little bridge that appears only when you wish to cross over, a futuristic intelligent gopher, who saves the employee the hassle of logging in and finding and saves the HR team the hassle of transacting processes, which are or could be designed to be carried out without manual intervention.

The conversational model is of great benefit, especially in modules which are needed to be used frequently by employees, modules that guzzle HR man-hours, and modules that need greater engagement.

The best example of this is the HONO NEXT-GEN LEAVE & ATTENDANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (With AI-backed Conversational Technology), which comes with an Intuitive Voice and chat Interface and is deployed on WhatsApp (besides being accessible as Voice-bot too).

While this Leave & Attendance management platform comes replete with the latest technology, HONO’s conversational technology makes sure it is as easy as talking to an HR personnel. With this, the employee gets the ease of transacting any Leave and attendance-related transaction (Inquiring, Informing, Applying, Regularising) at the very place and in the very way they are used to most – through a simple chat (over WhatsApp).

This, thus, addresses the challenge of employee engagement, the challenge of managing attendance and leave for a millennial workforce in a fluid workspace, keeping things in keel with compliances, and the challenge of computing data every month, manually or semi-manually for payroll!



- Verify employee location using GPS and Geo-fencing

- Track & approve employee hours, work cycles, attendance reports

- Create & manage multi-level approval workflows for cross-functional/ multi-team reporting

- Create customized policies- even one for every region, shift, or team.

- Ensure accuracy of data providing insights for employee performance and payroll


- Clock in & out with automated approval, great for on-the-go employees

- Perform multiple check-ins

- Act on time, responding to AI-generated system nudges to capture timely attendance

Do all the above without having to log into an HR interface, but directly through WhatsApp or on Voice command

So, if you dig the idea of moving your workforce into a more engaged state and are opting for a serious upgrade of your Leave & Attendance process, just reach out and we’ll schedule a demo call for you at your convenience. We promise that in line with our ‘one-size-fits-one’ philosophy, we’d customize it to deliver any additional features needed to address your specific business and HR needs.
