Calamari Software


 

Calamari is a cloud-based human resources solution that offers two best-of-breed modules: leave management and clock in or out services. The software is suitable for small to midsize businesses in any industry and offers Android and iOS mobile apps.

Users seeking a leave management system can use Calamari’s online tool, which automates PTO calculations and offers an absence calendar that integrates with Google Apps, Jira, Slack and more. Calamari allows users to configure different workflows for different types of absences and automatically apply their company’s leave policy.

Calamari’s clock in and out module offers a wide range of clocking methods. Users can click a button in a browser, scan a QR code, type a Slack command or even use iBeacons to automate clocking in based on location arrival. Timesheets can be edited and employees can request changes on their timesheet.

Calamari is available on a per employee per year basis.

Pros

Calamari has helped me so much over the time I have used it up until now. The calendar function allows great organization of schedule, leaves and absences. Time-sheet and reports are available for a more detailed access to data. It is amazing how organized a single software can easily transform your workspace.

Cons

It would be great if everything can be updated through mobile, such as schedules, for easier and faster access. I think some updates can be done through mobile, but not everything is supported.

I've been using Calamari for almost 1,5 year, and I had maybe two questions to customer care to ask (and they solve them in a few minutes). Perfect for our company (<20), we mostly use it for absence tracking.

Pros

Easy to navigate, easy to use for both management and employees.

Cons

I remember I felt a little lost in the beginning, but just going through tutorials made a change and showed me how helpful Calamari is.

HR doesn't have to add everything to the calendar/sheet manually. It's easier to apply for employees.

Employees can check everything they need to know.

We wanted to use Calamari so that our staff could know how much leaves and what kind of leaves they had left.
We also wanted this solution to be connected with Slack.
And it was a pleasure to discover that there was also a mobile app available

Pros

Calamari Leave is really very easy to configure and then to use!
It's highly parametrable and it adapts to many kinds of leaves and countries
And above all the team is really great!
I was really helped by the customer representative who informed me efficiently and quickly. Thank you again ;-)
He was always trying to understand what I needed and how Calamari could help me.
That is really great to have someone to help you and it's reassuring when you engage in a new process

Cons

As far as now, everything is ok for me. I am very happy with the French version even if some translations can be improved (and will be, for sure ;-) )

Implementing Calamari in our organisation was the best decision. The approval process is much more efficient and colleagues love it.

Pros

Calamari is user friendly and has a very nicely designed interface.
It has many features and you can easily tailor it to your needs.
The team is always very responsive and willing to improve the program.

Cons

I am still waiting for some small fine tuning but nothing to complain otherwise.

With Calamari we forgot about all the fuss with counting hours, different allowances for different teams and employees. Amazing functionality, which we can adjust to almost all our needs, endless possibilities of adjusting the settings to fit our needs best. If something is not possible then their amazing customer support makes it happen with a snap of the fingers.

Cons

Calamari rocks and it’s hard to find any cons. We are waiting for even more features and probably the most important is a separate calendar & module for schedules!

Pros

The application can be very useful for perfectly save everything. Calamari helps to manage staff attendance. Unique login credentials are used and access to the database is limited, therefore it helps to maintain an accurate record of the check in and check outs of the staff on each working day. It also has added features for keeping a track and record of the staff working hours. A further demarcation can be made to specify who was at which duty during which hour of the day. This can then be analyzed to make progress reports. Thus, It is an efficient tool for effective time management of the team.

Cons

It becomes useful for the marketing teams of various departments but for small-scale businesses, the pricing might be a bit too much. The customer care and guidance are very limited.

As an office assistant, I was also tasked to keep track of our team’s presence for meetings, team building events, company assemblies, office seminars and other company official get-togethers. Calamari helped me track attendance and time in and out of everyone part of the team. I have also suggested this software to our HR officer for tracking leaves, absences and others. The software is easily learned and easy to navigate. Integrations are possible with some other software which makes it easier to monitor attendance.

Cons

Not much to complain about at this point in time.

Calamari is just a great way to do something simple - manage holidays. Remote work, sick days, holidays, all of it is just thrown into calamari so you can monitor who is where.

There's not much I don't like about Calamari - I guess one thing is that it seems to respond slowly from time to time!

It is a software of easy handling that allows to take the supervision of the personnel regarding their vacations and absences so as not to make any mistake when granting them or making the respective discounts

Pros

It is a very easy and explanatory software that allows the organization to take internal control regarding vacations and absences, granting the same to those who really deserve it and keeping the staff in the company.

Cons

Nothing in specific allows to give the necessary information at the moment that is required regarding the human resource that is played in the organization
