“For a company that doesn’t have a large HR system, this was absolutely a worthwhile addition.”
For Nicole, managing spreadsheets for her team of 10 employees was nothing less than a nightmare. Prior to using Vacation Tracker, she managed her team’s PTO on very complicated spreadsheets that weren’t transparent to the team at all. “If you wanted to see how many days you had, you had to ask your manager who would ask me, and so forth,” she says. As a small, high-performance bootstrapped team in a charity that’s always looking for better ways to do things so they can focus on important work like building the leaders of tomorrow, they knew they had to use donor money responsibly.
Question was, how could she do that?
“I thought we weren’t big enough, that it wasn’t worth it or won’t save enough time. But, it was brain space and the thing that took my attention away from other things. It made [leave management] have no stress and no downside,” Nicole mentions. Her team was easily able to adopt Vacation Tracker, and a big reason why she chose our tool was because of the easy-to-use Slack integration and our customization options. Pricing was another factor, but “it was super affordable, especially with non-profit pricing,” she says. Her top reasons to use our tool include:
- A user-friendly Slack interface and direct integration
- An array of customization options
- Easy to use and adapt (with no training needed)

Increased visibility and transparency
With Vacation Tracker, Nicole’s frustrations regarding managing PTO are addressed through increased visibility, automation, and transparency when it comes to managing her team. Now, everyone has a centralized system to oversee all things PTO-related, according to her, it takes “2 seconds to adapt.”
No more manual work
“Why do it manually? Vacation Tracker is just better record keeping,” she also says, as her team no longer has to fill out spreadsheets and wait for weeks to get their leaves approved. With a busy schedule, Nicole finally has time to focus on the better things, like helping Enactus work with university and college students to make a difference in society.
