Tanda is MYOB’s Fastest Growing Add-on of 2016
Tanda was just named MYOB’s Fastest Growing Add-on of the Year for 2016. This is the first time the award has been conferred and is the first of its kind in Australia, marking an incredible milestone and achievement for Tanda.
When I first joined Tanda in 2013, we were just a small team in a very small office. In the three years since, Tanda has gone from strength to strength, growing ten-fold, to a team of over 40. It’s been an incredible journey and it feels like we’re only just getting started.
Employing people is much harder than it should be. By making it easier to be an employer, we are able to very quickly deliver value to our customers – as a result, we’ve seen phenomenal growth over the past 3 years. We are committed to solving the hard problems that businesses struggle with everyday, assisting them to focus on what’s actually important – improving their business.
We wouldn’t be where we are today without our partnership with MYOB. The rise of the cloud computing is giving business owners more and more options to connect the best software solutions together. Connected software is the future and we are incredibly grateful to have a partner that appreciates this.
We are excited about what we’ve been able to achieve with MYOB. Together, we’ve slashed thousands of hours every week of manual payroll processing time so payroll people and business owners can focus on something more productive.
Today we are very excited to be a market leader, but we’re only just starting out in our journey, and are very excited to see what comes next.
Thank you for joining us on this journey, MYOB. We love your work.

The Print Bar uses MYOB and Tanda to control costs
The Print Bar’s warehouse in the inner-suburbs of Brisbane is a symphony of people and machinery, churning out some of the highest quality custom t-shirt printing available in Australia. In just 5 years, Managing Director Jared Fulinfaw has grown from 2 employees in his parents’ garage to become one of largest suppliers of custom t-shirt printing in Australia, with 28 employees working around the clock, 7 days a week. It’s a resounding success story, but it’s clearly been no accident. Jared is keenly focused on running a lean business and striding ahead of the competition. Tools for rapid growth To run The Print Bar, Jared is hands on with everything and believes that up-to-date and forward looking financial data is essential. He uses MYOB to manage his finances, and Tanda to manage his people. “MYOB lets me keep track of my inventory and expenses, I even have my accounts reconciled fortnightly so I know exactly where I am. Tanda is for managing my biggest asset and my biggest expense – my team. To sell my product at competitive prices and maintain my margins, I need to be great at managing, rostering, and keep a very close eye on the costs of my staff.” “My team is everything,” says Jared. And the team agree — they say he’s the best boss ever. Rostering Every week, Jared uses Tanda to put together his roster. He starts by copying the last week’s so he has a template to work with, then makes any changes necessary based on availability or feedback from his team during the week. Next, he checks the roster’s cost – based on the award rules he’s configured – to ensure that he’s within budget. When it’s all looking good, he sends the roster out to staff by email. He generally does this well before the working week; if he needs to make any urgent changes afterwards, an updated roster by SMS alerts the relevant people. Attendance The Print Bar staff clock in and out of work using a Tanda time clock. It’s positioned on the wall near the entrance to the staff room, so it’s easy to spot and hard to forget! For Jared, the time clock acts as a virtual assistant – every day he gets a roll call of who clocked in, and who didn’t (based on their roster). And if someone’s not at work on time on a weekend, he also gets an SMS alert so he can quickly run in if need be. Timesheets and Payroll Every few days, Jared checks over staff timesheets, makes any necessary changes, and approves shifts when he’s happy with them. At the end of the fortnightly pay cycle, he clicks a button to export the timesheets directly to MYOB. Because Jared’s configured Tanda to work with his EBA, all of the data he downloads is mapped to the correct MYOB wage category – saving him hours he’d have spent doing it by hand.
