Klaus Magele, Salamander Austria manager, and Albert Setzger, sales manager, in conversation with SEAK. “No software I know of provides this variety and volume of key figures and interrelationships within a single system.”
“Everything runs largely without the need for paperwork now and is very transparent for all parties involved.”
“We have been working with SEAK for over 15 years now. Back then we started with 300 employees, today we have 600. For this reason alone, we are glad to have chosen a scalable solution that reliably grows with our company.
We use the entire range of SEAK solutions for our staff scheduling, from strategic annual plans to short-term weekly schedules. We also really appreciate SEAK’s mobile solutions, as they simplify our planning process and also make it faster and more transparent.”
” Our consultations have improved noticeably because the planners have a much clearer, more realistic guideline than before. Especially in our fashion departments, I can’t imagine any other solution anymore.”
“Thanks to the SEAK system, we were able to reduce overtime by 80 per cent – and that already in the first year and with an unchanged number of employees”
“It now only takes 30 to 60 minutes instead of two to three hours to plan an entire month’s staff schedules.
What is particularly important is that the quality of service has increased. Because we use more staff hours at busy times compared to before.”
“One thing is certain: our staff presence and thus our customer service have improved. We also know this from the feedback and evaluations of our customers from our internal Qualitize system.
“SEAK software enables smarter, faster and more efficient processes and operations. None of the branch managers use paper and pencil for scheduling any more, only the SEAK system.”
“SEAK software is unrivalled for companies in our field and has become indispensable for our company.”
„The trust of our employees has grown noticeably. They feel taken seriously because they can easily bring in their own wishes as well as manage and settle some concerns themselves.“
“h + p has made great efforts in the past couple of years to consolidate and present all relevant raw information from our systems to clarify how our company relates to indicators of comparable businesses. This helps us to recognize our own position, as well as to identify and leverage potential, especially when comparing it with the HIT circle. “
“We have transferred employees to other branches or accommodated requests for reduced working hours. So there was a compensation.
This resulted in increased sales, lower costs and improved work procedures.”
