MY BEST TECH: How Andre Eikmeier keeps staff productive with 15Five
Wednesday, September 4, 2013/
Andre Eikmeier is the founder and chief executive of Vinomofo, one of the country’s leading online retailers for wine.
The company has been on a productive streak lately, with compound growth of 30% over the past three months. But keeping the company intact requires strict management, so Eikmeier uses reporting app 15Five to keep everyone organised.
“15Five is a team reporting application, and it’s really simple. The premise is that each team member spends 15 minutes, and each manager five minutes once-a-week in organisation.”
“We tailor questions for each person, and it’s a chance for people to share their wins, some obstacles and if they need help with anything specific. It’s a great way to boost morale and get some data specific for individual projects.”
“It’s one of those clean, simple apps that doesn’t do more than it needs to do. It’s a great little HR app that’s good for small businesses.”
