An organization needs to manage the leave and attendance of its employees. Attendance has direct relation with employees, their payroll and leave. Various software for e-attendance of the employee are available in the market. Most of them are the desktop based applications and the others, though they are web based applications, during our preliminary survey we found that they were not efficient enough to cater the needs of the organization. Hence, we thought it be a beneficial project for us and the college as well as the concerned organizations. An organisation has the needs to manage the attendance and the leave records for its employees. Employees' Leave and Attendance Management System (ELAMS) is the online system for storing and the management of the leave and attendance records of the employees. The main function of this system is to keep the records of the employees' leave and attendance. We have envisioned that the project will be implemented so that the employees and the management could utilize the system for their future needs. This system has been developed in ASP.NET as the front end tool and MsSQL Server as the backend database.
