The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was among the big topics at this year’s Swedish customer meeting in Stockholm. NETTO, TOP-TOYS, Scandic Hotels, Bauhaus and several other Swedish TimePlan customers met for two days, and Tommy Runesson from Stadium held a highly relevant presentation of Stadium’s preparations for the GDPR.
Tommy Runesson and Stadium have been working on preparing for the new GDPR since February this year. He shared detailed considerations with the 23 customer meeting participants and offered that they could contact him if they had any further questions. The GDPR will become effective in 2018.
TimePlan’s Development Manager, Finn Harsfort presented how TimePlan will take the GDPR into account in future developments. He also showed TimePlan’s Roadmap for next year and the new JIRA helpdesk system. The TimePlan customer group also talked about TimePlan’s new Web App, communication with employees, automatic shift planning (Autoplan) in TimePlan and Digital Signature.
Birthday and host
Hanna Owe from Nordic Choice Hotels presented how the hotel uses TimePlan in the Nordic region. The ERFA meeting was held at the Clarion Hotel, which is part of the Nordic Choice Hotels, but the official host and sponsor of the meeting this year was actually TimePlan Software and PA Kompetens, the Swedish TimePlan distributor. CEO Henrik Baasch has recently turned 60, and he wanted to host the meeting as a celebratory gesture. As a general rule, one of the group members hosts the annual TimePlan customer meeting.
TimePlan’s Swedish customer group is celebrating 11 years this year, and the special thing about the group is that it runs across industries. TimePlan’s customer groups in e.g. Denmark are typically divided by industry: Retail, Hotel & Restaurants, etc. But in Sweden, the group wanted a mix industries using TimePlan and the annual meeting is held over the course of two days instead of one. Day 1 ended with a joint dinner at Gute Grill for all participants, and the next meeting will be held in Stockholm in May 2018.
