tamigo has given L’Épicerie des Prés a modern and configurable retail-oriented solution to handle rotas, contract hours and salary details in the cloud. The solution saves the store time and frees the managing director’s mind.
The French organic grocery store, L’Épicerie des Prés (part of the distribution network Biocoop), wanted a complete cloud-based Workforce Management solution. Besides an easy overview of all employees, it was also a priority to get a solution that could handle both legal and financial challenges. Furthermore, the solution should be more modern than the typical spreadsheets that other stores often use.
I did not want to spend hours developing things in Excel. I wanted a solution in the cloud, not on-premise. I wanted a solution with a focus on the legal and financial aspects of retail. Lastly, I wanted to have an overview for all the colleagues – by publishing the rota, I avoid having to print it, says Managing Director at L’Épicerie des Prés, Didier Grave.
L’Épicerie des Prés uses tamigo to edit rotas, plan weekly shifts and holidays, to look into contract hours and to easily provide salary details to their accountant. The store learned about tamigo via word of mouth, then did some research before eventually choosing tamigo. The other solutions they found were either too expensive and not retail-oriented or too big and heavy for a grocery store with 8 employees. For them, tamigo is a perfect fit due to 3 good reasons:
First, it is time-saving. Second, it is a point of reference – everyone knows their planned shifts. Third, trust. I do not need to check things in an Excel file, I trust the data sent to payroll. When I look at the salary details, I naturally trust it, and I do need not go back and check it. It frees my mind, concludes Didier Grave.
