Text Me Maybe: Share Your Rosters by SMS!

Tanda’s (PayAus) roster management tools just got even more powerful, with the ability to send your staff their rosters by SMS, instantly. No more printing rosters out and making sure they don’t get lost, or trampled on, or wet. No more casuals calling up during the busiest time of the day to ask when their next shift is. And no more typing text messages up yourself – Tanda can do it all for you. Once you’ve designed a roster in Tanda, just follow the prompts to SMS it to your staff. You’ll be able to select which staff members get their rosters delivered, and even see a preview of the message they’ll get. Rosters by SMS cost 25 cents per message, but as a gift to Tanda customers, we’re making the first month absolutely free. Have fun! P.S. rosters are sent to the phone number you’ve provided for your staff, so you’ll need to make sure that’s correct. If you are having issues entering phone numbers, or need help importing a lot of phone numbers, please contact us!

Tanda Unveils Easy-to-Use Wage Easy Integration

We are pleased to announced that Tanda (PayAus) has full Wage Easy integration, a leading payroll and HR software system. Full integration allows you to use Tanda to track your staff’s attendance and manage their timesheets, and then export the data directly into Wage Easy, and your subsequent HR processes. How does it work? Well, they don’t call it Wage Easy for nothing! New organisations can import their staff from Wage Easy using our super simple staff importer, and a Wage Easy employee report. Check out our user guide for a complete walkthrough. Once your staff are in Tanda, use the system as usual – create rosters, track attendance, manage timesheets, and enjoy real time reporting. At the end of your pay period, you can export your timesheet data into a Wage Easy file, which you can import straight into Wage Easy – never fill out a timesheet manually again. Again, our user guide has all the details. Wage Easy joins MYOB as fully integrated Tanda systems, allowing us to better service even more small and medium businesses in Australia. Are you using Tanda to make your business run smoothly yet? If not, try a free demo today and experience the difference – it’s easy.

New From Tanda: Daily Roll Calls

It’s 10:15 in the morning. Your weekly all hands meeting starts at 10:30, and you need a list of people who won’t be there. What do you do? If you don’t use Tanda (PayAus), maybe you’re lucky and have another system in place where staff clock in when they get to work. Chances are, it’s signing their name into a book. So, you file through the book, matching names in it against a list of people who should be at work. If you’re unlucky, you go to everyone’s desk, office, or workstation and check if they’re there. Then you come back in five minutes to account for those who were away from their desk last time. If you’ve got multiple offices, this is the point at which you probably give up. If you use Tanda, you check your email. Sitting in it is a list of staff who’ve clocked in so far today. And because you’ve been using Tanda for your rostering, the list highlights who was rostered to arrive – but didn’t – and who turned up late. Our brand new roll call feature is live! Say goodbye to headcounts and headaches, and hello to an automated list of who’s at work, direct to your inbox. Roll calls are fully configurable; send them once, twice, even five times, in as often as 10 minute increments. Send them to as many email addresses as you like. Don’t want to come to work on Sunday just to check who else did? Configure your roll call to only send on weekends. Don’t need the roll call anymore? Disable it in one click. You can even get an end-of-day roll call that tells you who hasn’t clocked out – great for checking that staff are remembering to use Tanda, and that they aren’t working ridiculous overtime. You can start using roll calls right now – they’re accessible via the Notifications tab at the top of the page.
