How Sage Self Service (SSS) makes your employees’ lives easier

Employees can view their leave balances as they appear on the payroll database and apply for leave on the system.


Your employees are able to view and update their personal information online, including:

  • Names and contact numbers.
  • Banking details.
  • Emergency contact details.
  • Statutory information such as ID numbers, tax numbers, and addresses.
  • Details of family members, next of kin, and beneficiaries.
Because Sage Self Service saves every payslip, an employee can view a history of these whenever they want or need to.

ESS automates travel reimbursements or expense claims. An employee simply needs to complete a form within the SSS solution, this request will then be authorised, and the transaction automatically reflected on their payslip.


Employees can capture overtime using the ESS system. As soon as a request has been approved, the hours are automatically reflected on the company’s payroll. Overtime forms can be customised too and employees are given the ability to attach files, if they need to.
