It is not unusual for Danish retail chains which dream of expansion, to end up implementing different workforce management systems, all developed in the host countries.

However, this practise is far from optimal, not least because the employees' internal mobility in the organisation is hampered when they have to be trained in several different rota systems.

"Before we (Bolia.com, Editor's note) selected a rota system, we researched the market thoroughly. We chose Tamigo as the system already covered a number of countries and was easy to use," says International HR-manager in Bolia.com, Anette Sørensen.

Today the successful furniture chain is represented in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Germany with a total of 39 stores. The employees in all countries have given Tamigo a good reception, says Anette Sørensen.

"Regardless of country and culture, our initial impression – that Tamigo is a user-friendly planning tool for all our employees – has been confirmed."


We have many part-time employees as we need some employees only to work afternoons and weekends. Consequently there are often many changes in the rota, but Tamigo makes these changes easy to manage with a minimum of administrative resources.

Moreover, seen from the head office's point of view, Tamigo provides an invaluable overview of labour costs and a correct payroll process for all stores, which typically have a very large number of part-time employees, says Anette Sørensen.
