Since it has a Leave Management feature, most of us benefited from that one. Also it easy to use. Calamari turned out to be a great solution that allowed us to make the process more agreeable and helped both Employees and Team Leaders better plan their work!
  • Leave management feature.
  • Track attendance and work time of employees.
  • Free trial.
  • Lack of a mobile app.
  • A little tricky at first to use.
  • Need HR-friendly features to add.
The very user-friendly interface encourages our team members to use Calamari regularly. The tool is also very simple to use so all in-house communication is strengthened because of that. The Success team writes back within minutes and helps with literally everything so the communication between us/our team and Calamari is great.
Working with my rep is so easy and has been the selling point on this platform. I like that I don't have to think about it much, love the Slack integrations for my team and how easy it was to transition from our old process into Calamari. It's simple, clear, and for a small team, it has everything I need. The customer support team has always responded promptly when I need anything, and we were even able to extend our trial period in the beginning and converted to a paying customer shortly after.

We're using Calamari for our whole company. It's a really awesome absence management and time tracking solution, with a lot of additional functions and flexible configuration options. It allows us to plan our vacations effectively, but also track our working hours effortlessly using Beacon technology and the mobile Calamari app. No more cards and manually clocking in. You come into the office, or log in to your desk and your phone with the Calamari app, connect to Beacon, and it clocks you in. It's that easy!
  • Feature rich.
  • Cheap.
  • Professional and helpful support team.
  • Beautiful and clear UI.
  • Would be great to have a team calendar in the mobile app.
  • Give notifications about the end of the working day.
  • Provide a better dashboard for tracking available vacation days in the mobile app.
It's absolutely great for tech companies that are open to new technologies. Clocking in and out is super easy, and you have a lot of options to do it. My favorite two are: automatically clocking in using the mobile app and beacons, and clocking in/out using Slack integration. It's a great tool not only for the HR department, but for team leaders as well. It's easy to manage team member vacation requests and plans.
