“We can make instant changes to e.g. the rota and let our employees know instantly. Also, we do not need to worry about a broken formula somewhere in the Excel sheet.” says Ricco Alvarez, General Manager at Hotel des Nordens.
Hotel des Nordens is located Harrislee, Germany. They have been using tamigo since 2010. Before tamigo, they relied on spreadsheets in Excel for rota planning and an old-fashioned timeclock to keep track of time and attendance.
Ricco Alvarez uses tamigo on a day-to-day basis to keep his overview of the planned weeks to come:
“I check the staffing profiles in the rota, to make sure that we’ve planned the necessary people. The graphs above the rota gives me a good overview, so I can get in touch with the responsible department manager, if there’s a planned day that looks out the ordinary.”
The hotel is located close to the Danish border and focuses on business and leisure. However, with the largest heated outdoor pool in Northern Germany they welcome a lot of families over summer and for both the German and Danish school breaks. This means that the internal vacation planning can be challenging for the hotel, but tamigo helps Ricco Alvarez, to make the right decisions:
“I am approving all the employees’ requests for vacation. tamigo makes it easy for me to get the transparent overview I need of who’s requesting absence when. This means that, I always can ensure that we have the amount of people we need in all our departments, especially in the high season.” says Ricco Alvarez.
