tamigo, founded in 2006, has made significant strides in expanding its reach beyond Denmark, with Anton playing a crucial role in exploring new markets as a Business Development Representative. "Our journey from Denmark to countries like Germany, the UK, and Italy has been fueled by our commitment to adapt and respond to the diverse needs of our clients," Anton shared, highlighting the company's growth strategy.

Discussing the challenges of digital adoption, Anton pointed out, "One of the biggest hurdles at the employee level, especially in markets like Germany, is the resistance to using personal smartphones for work-related tasks." tamigo's solution to this is an intuitive app designed to ease employees into the digital workflow, proving that technology can be both powerful and accessible.

For planners transitioning from traditional methods to tamigo's system, Anton underscored the importance of showing the tangible benefits of digital scheduling. "We often hear from planners who've switched to tamigo saying they've saved a full day's work per week, allowing them to focus more on their teams," he remarked, highlighting the efficiency gains from adopting AI-driven tools.

Looking forward, Anton revealed tamigo's roadmap, focusing on product development and market expansion, particularly in Germany, France, and the UK.
