How we used to manage?
After some time, we became too big of a company to still manage leaves in so many different places as we used to (excel files, emails or paper). To be honest, each company’s department had their own methods, so everybody did it differently.
In a need of change:
We wanted to change it and thus we chose Calamari. When it comes to worktime management, before we just had a separate place, where we kept the data. So, when Calamari introduced the new module – Clockin, we approved that it would be even better to have all data about presences and absences in one place and that’s why we deployed it as well.
Admittedly, I didn’t checked any other solutions, cause after having tested Calamari, it seemed to be decent enough for us, so there was no point in looking further. The feature that I enjoyed from the beginning was the scope of integrations. Slack seems to be the most convenient for us – everybody uses it on a daily basis and with special command they can register their presence as well. The levels of privileges and processes of acceptance are quite fancy as well – you can supervise who has access to what and who accepts specific requests.
What we also like is the fact that the Calamari team truly listens to us and many things that we proposed were implemented by them.
Thanks to Calamari we have an order and cohesion of data in every department – everything is centralized. What’s more, formal remote type of work appeared with the deployment of Calamari. Besides, thanks to the mutual calendar, each employee knows when coworkers are at work, when they work remotely or when they are on leave or have lunch, which is pretty awesome. Before there had been situations when people from one department didn’t know what was going on in other departments. We have quite a big office, so we don’t always see everybody in person. Calamari solved this type of problems, and generally everybody praises the product.
Currently, we spend less and less time on managing absences, which increases the amount of time saved. The productivity has risen definitely. Thanks to better clarity, it is easier for employees to plan their meetings and projects.
