“Vacation Tracker gave us a sense of comfort.”
Anne-Marie, the Campus Manager, and IT Operations lead at GrowthOps, recognized the need for a better approach to leave management in her Asia offices than just relying on Microsoft Word and Excel spreadsheets.
Prior to using Vacation Tracker, she managed the process manually using Word and Excel documents for over 250 team members in Asia, including Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia. All leave requests were submitted in Word, approved by a manager, reviewed by HR, and updated manually in spreadsheets. And once approved, the spreadsheets had to be updated for each leave type, each use, and each quota. Exhausting.
“We wanted something we could use more easily and effectively,” she says.
And thus, Anne-Marie undertook the task of doing extensive research to find a solution that could meet her company’s requirements for managing leave. Their team needed a system that was scalable, integrated with Slack, and had a user-friendly interface with easy setup.
Although she played a significant role in researching several options, the final decision to implement Vacation Tracker was made by the COO and CIO. When looking for a solution, Anne-Marie had the following goals in mind:
- The ability to scale the system as needed
- Integration with Slack
- A user-friendly interface and easy setup
