Decathlon earlier used a manual system based on Excel for scheduling and time reporting for their staff. This procedure was both time consuming, expensive and unreliable. Each month they distributed the time reports on paper sheets for each employee to the Visma payroll system. Visma then had to manually enter the information into their system which incurred high costs.
A year ago Decathlon asked Visma if they could recommend any vendors that could provide them with a new automated system to help solve their main problems with manual scheduling and time reporting.
Visma gave them two names of vendors they have good experience of. One of them was Quinyx. They tested the two systems in parallel for a time period of two months.
”Quinyx as a company had many similarities with our company that we liked” says Amandine Treguer, CFO and HR manager. The main reasons to why we chose Quinyx were:
The implementation project went very quick mainly depending on the user friendly system. Quinyx set all parameters and Amandine was first trained how to administrate and use the system and than she trained the employees resonsible for HR in each store. The next step was to have every employee responsible for HR train 6-7 managers.
The project took around 60 days, including almost two months of testing with full payroll before they went live.
We asked Amandine if she would recommend Quinyx and their solutions to a similar company or to a colleague/friend.
“Definitely, on the scale 0-10, I give them a 10. Every time we have a question or a problem, Quinyx are very responsive and do their very best to solve it smooth and quickly."
"Most of the time we have a solution within 24 hours. I have also told my HR and CFO colleagues from other countries that we are very satisfied with Quinyx solution”, says Amandine
