We are improving our infrastructure platform
Over the next few weeks, we will be migrating Tanda’s servers and infrastructure to Amazon Web Services (AWS). The AWS platform is the leading provider of online cloud services. It is currently used by a wide array of companies, including Xero and Netflix.
At 8am on Sunday July 17, we will be taking Tanda offline for about an hour to move customer data over to AWS. During this time you will be unable to access the website. All of your time clocks will continue to work and they will sync data back to Tanda when we come back online.
What does the move mean for you?
Tanda will be offline for about an hour, from 8am to 9am (AEST) on Sunday July 17. About half an hour before the event, you’ll receive an alert inside Tanda notifying you of the upcoming transition.
Tanda will be hosted in Australia as a result of the AWS platform upgrade. This will mean that all data will be stored locally in Australia, providing a more secure, faster and beneficial service for our customers.
When we come back online, Tanda will be just as it was, and thanks to our new infrastructure, you’ll be able to create, print, send, approve (or decline) everything faster than ever before.
What’s not changing
While the AWS update is an exciting change, the Tanda system and features that you use daily will remain untouched by the update. Our great support team will still be on hand to assist, and are committed to helping you get the most from Tanda.
If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to call us on 1300 859 117, check out the Tanda help documentation, or email email@example.com

Tanda brings time clocks and timesheets to Attaché
TandaHQ is pleased to announce not only are we integrated with MYOB and Xero to name a few – but we’ve just integrated with Attaché! What do you mean, you’re integrated now? you might ask. Well, for starters now we can export time sheet data in a way that their payroll software can import. This makes Tanda the perfect add-on for Attaché users. As of right now, Tanda is 100% more user friendly for Attaché users. I’m an Attaché user, what does this mean for me? The answer to that question depends on whether you’re a Tanda user as well. If you’re not one just yet, it means all the rostering features, time and attendance, clock in features, cost reporting and any new features we’ve introduced in the Tandaverse are now easily accessible and user-friendly for Attaché customers as well. So when you decide to use Tanda for your workplace as an add-on with Attaché, everything will run smooth. If you already use Tanda then rest assured, the only thing that will change for you is the formatting is now that much better for your user interface. Whilst the future of Tanda is looking at further growth in Australia, it never hurts to strengthen your abilities and connections at home too. For those who are unaware, Attaché is a business software company currently based in Australia and New Zealand. Although, they’re a much larger business so if you’re in the business software community like us you would’ve surely heard of them. Unlike Tanda, whom are still the new kids on the block in the cloud software neighbourhood, Attaché has been around since 1981. That is easily more than 30 years in the business, impressive to say the least. They even won the 2014 Australian Business Award for Cloud Product Of The Year. It’s something Tanda can really aspire to. Where can I check out Attaché and Tanda? To have a look at Attaché head to their website at attachesoftware.com If you want to check out Tanda further, you’re currently on our blog so you’re already halfway there.

Public Service Announcement: Fair Work Crackdown
The recent spate of Fair Work crackdowns has increased concern for small business owners, as the severity and prevalence of non-compliance and underpayment continues to increase. Fair Work recently imposed a $143,000 penalty against a Brisbane Business Owner and his former internal Payroll and Account Manager, after it was uncovered that they had deliberately underpaid staff at a Japanese food outlet. While business owners have always been liable for such breaches, it is the first case of a payroll manager being penalised under accessorial liability. Accessorial liability has been one of the preferred tools wielded by Fair Work recently, as it focuses on looking past the principal company to further down the supply and managerial chain. The increase in the number of wage underpayments, has led the Federal Government to introduce the Fair Work Amendment (Protecting Vulnerable Workers) Bill 2017. The Bill intends to increase the maximum penalties for those found breaching the Fair Work Act. It will seek to hold franchisors and holding companies responsible for actions of their franchisees and subsidiaries, if they are found to be in breach of the Fair Work Act. If passed, this legislation will see the maximum penalties for a company increase from $54,000 to $540,000, and maximum penalties for an individual increase from $10,800 to $108,000. Fines will be imposed for each offence, and could potentially see businesses facing over $1 million in penalties, for breaching the Fair Work Act. Fair Work has strict compliance guidelines and regulations regarding pay rates, payslip laws and staff leave entitlements. Business owners therefore need to be proactive in their approach to compliance, to ensure that they are legally meeting their compliance requirements. Businesses looking to gain greater compliance comfort and oversight into their business should implement workforce management software solutions for peace of mind and security to managing and paying staff. These solutions not only automate Award and EA calculations (where most of the payroll mistakes occur), but also provides oversight into the entire business, including pay rates, staff attendance and wage costs. For more information regarding the Fair Work Act and regulations please visit the Fair Work site.
