What they gained
with tamigo

Engaging company-wide

User-friendly work
app for staff

Headquartered in Amsterdam, the fashion brand Scotch & Soda has been a high street fixture since the 1980s. It now has over 200 stores worldwide. 

Like many businesses, Scotch & Soda’s workforce management was, for a long time, Excel-based. Spreadsheets were used to laboriously track absences and to plan employees’ shifts. 

By 2018, the company was on the hunt for a smarter solution. Top priority was finding something which better served its staff’s day-to-day needs on the shop floor. tamigo’s user-friendly app fit the bill for the company’s HR Manager Mirijana Krstanovic. 

My colleagues love it — tamigo is very easy to use. The staff in stores are mostly using the tamigo app to schedule shifts, time off and to check their worked hours.

Keeping spirits up during
tough times 

For Mirijana, tamigo also proved handy for engaging employees in HR projects. 

“We have been sending out SMSs and emails through tamigo to our employees inviting them to our yearly survey on employee satisfaction. This has helped us a lot getting more colleagues to participate in the survey.” 

In March 2020, Europe went into lockdown. All 35 Scotch & Soda stores in Germany and Austria had to be temporarily closed. 

In this time of uncertainty, communication between management and employees took on even greater importance. tamigo’s front page (the first thing employees see when they open the app) came into its own. 

“The easiest way for us to reach all our colleagues has been the tamigo front page”, explains Mirijana. “We shared updates and internal information about the situation and workflows. Moreover, our CEO sent out a letter to all employees to give some encouragement, which we also shared via tamigo.”
