"Easy and good customer service"

What do you like best?

Staff worked with us to fully explain and customize the platform to what we needed. Love that it syncs with Google calendar

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if the google sync wasn't an all or nothing solution. Our company has 3 divisions using our Calamari account and it would be nice to just see the people in our own division's team calendar events and not everybody's.

Recommendations to others considering the product

give it a try to see if it is a good solution for you as well

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to get rid of a clock in software and our manual request off and logging software. We mounted a tablet by our door and employees use the QR code scanner when they enter to clock in and out instead of having to log in on their computer--and they actually have to be here and can't be sneaky and do it remotely

"Great customer service."

What do you like best?

Kamil really helped me out a lot when I was trying to configure some unique rules. Fast replies and customer service. The Slack integration is really helpful so that managers are also able to approve/reject requests directly on Slack. The best thing about Calamari is also it's UI/UX design which is clean and easy to navigate around.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike. Kamil went above and beyond to help me out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to learn software that is easy to set up and use. The team at Calamari is also great with customer service and is constantly improving their features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working in a company with numerous remote staff, being able to create different leave rules for the various staff really helps in helping us track their leaves and holidays better.

What Workforce Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Simple and effective way for leave management"

What do you like best?

Easy to setup and introduce to the team. It is easy to start thanks to integration with Google Apps and others. Whole team is ready to use Calamari right away. The best feature is to check how many days you got left, so you can plan you next vacation. From the manager point of view, you got calendar that shows you each day with team presence.

What do you dislike?

Not so much. UI can be modern, all it can be customized for company brand colors, not is only green. To setup custom leave rules you need to dig a bit, but after a while you now how to do that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try and see if it fits your need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Leave Managment for my team. Easy to track holidays for my team. Before that we use Excel, which was super easy to start, but was har to colaborate.

"Solidly Okay"

What do you like best?

I like the Slack bot integration, especially when I'm able to accept a vacation request from within Slack.

What do you dislike?

The employee who was submitting hours for me to approve was regularly screwing it up and having to make second or third requests to update the hours. I wish they could just update the hours themselves. Also, the software should probably know that he didn't work 30+ hours in a row!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking vacation and intern hours. As a manager it's not super helpful, but I do like that it remembers how much vacation someone has used that year so far.

Calendar view could be bigger and better organised.
