Tanda has halved Beefy’s payroll processing time...
Beefy’s Chief Operating Officer, Brett uses Tanda because it saves his staff time, but also lets him check in with all eight stores and 127 team members, even when he can’t be there.
Beefy’s is a family owned pie business, renowned for their Signature Steak Pie, and their famous #1 Gluten-Free Signature Steak Pie. Leading the pie industry is busy work, so Beefy’s turned to Tanda to help them relieve their administrative and payroll stress.
Before Tanda, Brett explains that the process for creating rosters, sending them out to staff and processing payroll was a lengthy manual process.
“It was all very hands on and very manual; to do the payroll, to do the roster, to get it to the team members from a rostering point of view. Managers would have to do all the checks and balances by the end of the week, then fax or phone it through. There’s always room for error in that case.”
With Tanda, Beefy’s halved the accountant's time processing payroll,
“As far as I’m concerned, Tanda is a no-brainer! It’s saved us time, which ultimately saves us money and allows us to identify other aspects of the business that we want to focus on.”
There was some hesitation among the self-confessed ‘computer illiterate’ group, however the transition to Tanda was smooth and painless.
“The support team is excellent! It’s very, very good. We’ve had some issues there, so we’d ring up and say ‘why has this occurred?’, and we’ve got contact straight away!”
Tanda helps Beefy’s manage their multi-site business from one location, giving them complete accessibility from Head Office.
“We have an area manager- who instead of having a hard copy of each store’s roster, and saying, ‘oh I need to catch up with this manager, or that person or that team member’. She can go onto Tanda, check that they’re on site and utilise it that way. ”
In addition to tracking employee time and attendance, Brett finds Tanda’s reporting system hugely beneficial in helping keep an eye on the running costs of the business.
“The more you can analyse your company’s efficiencies or lack of, is only a benefit for the company. I’ve got it set up so I can look at a daily report, from wage expenditure through to weekly, monthly and the like.”
“I would recommend Tanda to anyone in business, especially if you’re running a business and want to keep an eye on your numbers- a lot of companies are still out there doing it manually, so for time savings, which become cost effectiveness- I would recommend it!”.
As for Brett’s favourite pie- “It’s definitely the cracked pepper, you can’t beat it!”
