Optimising Operations with Champions IGA
IGA (Independent Grocers of Australia) is a buyer group of grocery stores, with each individual store owned independently. Champions IGA is one of them, and after beginning with three outlets, now operates nine stores with over 700 employees.
For their outlet in Bendigo, Victoria, it’s crucial to stay connected with their local community, by providing high quality service and produce. But staying across their staffing levels, demand and labour costs across so many locations can be challenging.
Champions implemented Tanda and hasn’t looked back, enjoying quick implementations, accurate payroll exports, and quality insights across their suite of outlets.
With Champions IGA system involved in rostering and paying over 700 employees, it was crucial that any changeover didn’t affect their operations. Having a seamless rollout has helped them focus on doing the things they should be doing – serving customers great quality produce.
For Operations Manager Harrison Zervakis, its been a great move.
“The rollout has been seemless for us. We’ve found that store managers have been able to pick it up quite quickly, and even department managers.”
