International Cat Care

Breathe is a great system - it's quick and easy to use, very intuitive and the online support is phenomenal. If you’re thinking of signing up – do it!”

The challenge

International Cat Care is a charity that has been running for over 60 years, focusing on improving the health and welfare of cats by providing advice, training and passion. The charity works with veterinary and welfare organisations all over the world and regularly gets involved in projects to help stray, feral and unowned cats.

With 21-50 employees at the charity, administrator Tracy was struggling with old manual methods and was making do with spreadsheets to manage employee admin. As well as being complicated, insecure and stressful, having to make do with spreadsheets was consuming far too much of Tracy’s time - it was time she searched for an alternative method to speed things up and improve data security.

The solution

Tracy voiced her concerns about the charity’s current HR processes, and as a result a contact of hers recommended breathe as an ideal solution to her problems. Intrigued, Tracy visited the Breathe website where she enquired to a member of the support team via the chat facility. She really liked the sound of the product and it seemed like it could be a great solution, so Tracy decided to try Breathe for free.

After taking out a 14 day trial and importing her employees, Tracy immediately loved the Breathe system. She found the holiday module especially useful, where she was able to see a clear overview of all leave via the calendar as well as manage all holiday requests in one place.

The result

Once Tracy’s 14 day trial with Breathe had come to an end, she immediately decided to sign up for a regular monthly plan.

Since using Breathe, Tracy has waved goodbye to all delays and errors that came with slow, manual methods. She has seen a dramatic decrease in the valuable time she is spending on HR admin, which she has now dedicated to managing her employees face-to-face.

It’s gone down a treat with employees, too – since signing up with breathe, Tracy’s colleagues have commented on how quick, easy and intuitive it is to use.
