Empuls helps you send communications to employees for occasions that are beyond the scope of employees' performance at work. These occasions can be special occasions in an employee's life like the birth of a child, getting married, and other similar instances.
Few of the predictable events are automated via the Automated Communications feature, this section helps you send communications with gift points whenever an occasion arises.

2) Festive occasions like Christmas, Diwali, etc where the HR wishes to send greetings to all or a subset of the employees.
