Fast Return on Investment and Microsoft Azure - Two Reasons to Choose Spica

With the company takeover and renaming of DISS d.o.o. into ALSO Technology Ljubljana d.o.o., the new branch office became one of the leading ICT service providers in Slovenia and expanded its footprint in the East European market. After the takeover, new strategic guidelines and demands on business process optimisation were set, especially demands on higher digitalisation and automation regarding internal processes and HRM. This is where All Hours by Spica was chosen as the perfect fit.


Faster business processes despite tighter control

One of the first actions that ALSO took was the implementation of an electronic clocking process that offers a real-time view of all arrivals and departures, as well as workplace attendance. Payroll automation significantly contributes to faster payroll data processing and almost completely eliminates errors. Vacations, sick leaves, and other absences are approved and managed on multiple levels, which speeds up the entire process and provides control for employees and managers. Being an advanced tech company unconditionally striving for high productivity and fast return on investment ALSO decided to implement Spica’s solution All Hours PRO. They took advantage of the numerous benefits offered by All Hours PRO deployed as a cloud solution in MS Azure. Two significant benefits were fast implementation as well as software on-demand instead of investing in hardware, software, and maintenance that are part of traditional on-premise solutions. Bottom line, no CAPEX costs, only OPEX costs.

All Hours time tracking


"Before we decided to implement All Hours, we studied other solutions and compared prices. We have worked with Spica before, and we were satisfied with their approach. While planning this project, I was really surprised by their quick response in the pre-sales phase. First, we thoroughly examined our processes, defined the "pain points", and quickly identified what we needed and why we should choose exactly this solution. The service was implemented in one week and it functions very well." Blaž Bregar, Regional HR Business Partner
