The Print Bar’s Managing Director Jared Fullinfaw talks Tanda...
The Print Bar is a Brisbane based t-shirt printing company, specialising in digital prints, screen prints, embroidery and vinyl prints. With so much creativity and design flying around, Jared relies on Tanda to manage his staff, so he can do what he does best- print awesome t-shirts.
Jared brought Tanda on as a way to cut down on his administrative tasks and costs.
“I start each week’s roster, by using the previous week as a template. I can drag and drop shifts to make any changes, which makes it super easy to match my roster to the number and size of the print jobs we have scheduled for the week.
“It only takes me five minutes to create, and I know that I’ve got enough staff rostered on for the week. If something does come up, I know that I can quickly make a change and the staff will be notified immediately.”
Jared uses the costed roster function to check how much the week’s wages are going to cost and whether the roster is within budget. Once he’s happy with it, he emails it out to staff well in advance, so he has time to make changes if someone can’t work their shift.
“Our Tanda time clock is on the wall near the staff room entrance, so it’s easy to spot and hard to forget. The live clock-in stream is a really great tool, because I get to see who’s at work, and at what time.”
“I can also see if someone has forgotten to clock in- which makes it easier to chase them up now then at the end of the fortnight when we’re trying to do payroll.”
Jared likes to look over his staff timesheets, make any changes if shifts have changed and then approve them.
“By approving my timesheets regularly, I’m actually cutting down the time I have to spend at the end of the fortnight verifying shifts.”
“Tanda has made payroll so smooth! Uploading my timesheets from Tanda to MYOB automatically, has given me back the three hours a week, that I spent doing payroll for our team of 26 staff.”
