How Bolia solved their
overstaffing issues 

Bolia wanted to help their managers with their budgets.
But Excel
wasn’t giving them the right insights for the job.

What they gained
with tamigo

Planned vs. actual budgets 

More transparent schedules 

Bolia has been at the forefront of Scandinavian design for over twenty years. 

Founded in the Danish city of Aarhus, it now has dozens of retail stores in eleven European markets. And a global reach through its webshop and network of dedicated dealers. 

As it grew, Bolia had to keep a firm handle on all its stores’ workforce management.  

“Some of the stores were challenged as they used more hours than they were budgeted,” explains HR Director Anette Sørensen. 

 So, head office sent out a request to all their European stores: start adding your hourly budget in tamigo. 

By adding budgets, and by comparing it to the expected productivity and the planned hours vs. the budget in tamigo, we got the right insights for us to benchmark and help stores plan within the budgets.

New insights for
store managers 

tamigo also gave store managers themselves a clearer view of the cost of shifts during the planning phase.  

Using tamigo’s activities feature, they could then demonstrate to HQ how their schedules were aligning with the company’s goals. 

Bolia’s HR Specialist, Heidi Bøgelund, says it made a huge difference. 

“If a store has been planning more hours than budgeted, we can always find the reason, since the store managers will register time on activities. This gives us the needed transparency in HQ and across all our stores.”
