Opening a new or complete reconstruction of an existing Fruitisimo branch, launching an e‑shop, implementing EDI, preparing an annual business plan, foreign expansion - all these are complex projects that we deal with a lot in Fruitisimo. We used to have shared excel to do this, which is relatively easy for less complex projects, but as the number of team members and the complexity of the project increases, excel is no longer sufficient and is becoming a barrier to success. By switching to Freelo, we were able to bridge the two worlds - making it as easy as possible for everyone to collaborate on projects, while keeping ”warehouse” for notes and handouts where users most often look for them.
”Team members also like the ability to repeat tasks. The accountant no longer has to stress about missing a tax deadline.”
Team members also like the ability to repeat tasks. The accountant no longer has to stress about missing a tax deadline or missing a monthly closing, and there are no disputes when a supervisor blames a team member for not completing a task and the team member counters that the task was assigned late/not at all. It's not for nothing that they say regularity is liberating, and it's 100 % true especially for activities that people don't do so often at work and then tend to neglect - so it's nice to use Freelo to set up regular 1:1 meetings with subordinates and track the progress of other HR activities.
”We get the impression from Freelo that its creators have a business mindset, realize that the users of their tool will include people for whom Freelo is not the center of the world, and are constantly trying to develop Freelo so that using it is fun and not a necessary suffering
“Unlike competing tools, Freelo is significantly clearer and more user-friendly. We have often struggled with team members being negative about new tools because they are unnecessarily complex, try to solve all the world's problems at once, and often burden a huge amount of new administration. We get the impression from Freelo that its creators have a business mindset, realize that among the users of their tool will be people for whom Freelo is not the center of the world, and are constantly trying to develop Freelo so that using it is fun and not necessarily suffering.“
