“We were effectively paying twice: one monthly fee for the payroll, and another for a resource to check what we sent them! Compared to the way we work now, it was so much more expensive.” Says Yusi.
Having to comply with pay regulations in different states across the country added complexity, and made forecasting and cost control very difficult. Sharing staff across sites, compare rosters between stores and controlling wage costs was near on impossible.
As a growing business, Sheike recognised that if they didn’t fix issues relying on manual process, then the problems would grow too.
“Now we do it all ourselves, so we have complete visibility over our rosters, availability and leave. Wage control used to be nigh on impossible. Now, each store has the information it needs to stay in control of costs, and that of course aids group profit.”
All the different wage regulations in the different States are handled by one system. So staff are paid the right rates for their age and times on shift, no matter what store they work in.
