From a children's room to large production halls with a hundred employees and sales of half a billion CZK a year. This is the story of Dominik Píchal andhis e-shop Grizly.czwhere lovers of quality healthy food, nuts, dried fruit and other goodies will find something to love. He joined Freelo with his team at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis and still manages several departments there.
„Freelo is one of our most important tools for internal communication and communication with external tools. We manage all projects through Freelo, even a large IT project with hundreds of tickets per month. Freelo is simple and everyone was happy to start working with it. Among other things, I find it nice that it is in Czech and with Czech support.“
Back in 2014, Dominik Píchal was packing and shipping one order a week from his parents' nursery and sauna. Eight years later, together with a team of more than 100 people, he runs his own production, packing and e-shop in large halls , expands abroad, picks up 7,500 orders a week and plans to triple the current turnover in the next 3 years. The success of the Olomouc e-shop Grizly.cz was underlined by the Quality Award in the Food and Beverages category in the Heureka ShopRoku 2021 competition.
A big challenge for the Grizly team recently has been the increase in turnover and the transition from a small family business with two people making decisions to a large organisation with a broad management team. This entails the division of responsibilities and tasks within the larger team. In order for all members to work together effectively, they boarded Freelo.
„Before, we had assignments scattered in bits and pieces in shared documents or emails, and we taped coloured papers to our monitors. Freelo helped us to create separate projects, divide them into To-Do sheets and define individual tasks. This allowed us to coordinate activities on a daily basis and communicate operatively and flexibly within the team."
Grizly.cz has successfully completed over 3,000 tasks in 50 projects so far.
The Grizly team uses Freelo for long and short-term projects across departments. There they store new ideas, share trends and other information that shouldn't be lost in time.
„In Freelo we deal with many different topics. From planning marketing campaigns to new product development, commenting on e-shop modifications, mapping and setting up new work processes, dealing with strategic projects to legal and business agendas. We also use Freelo to communicate with external suppliers and collaborating agencies.“
