About Tanda

Tanda is a cloud-based workforce management and time & attendance solution which offers electronic clock in, payroll integration, employee scheduling, time off/overtime management, wage automation, real-time reporting, SMS notifications, and more. Native time clock apps are available for iOS and Android tablets, allowing employees to clock in and out from an unlimited number of locations. Tanda is designed across a range of industries with hourly employees, including retail, franchise, hospitality, accommodation, manufacturing, medical, and more.

Tanda allows users to set daily/weekly schedule budgets for individual teams and the whole organization. Schedules are costed automatically in real-time, so changes can be made to stay within budget. An unlimited number of schedule templates can be created and stored to streamline schedule creation, and staff can set their availability for users to access when planning shifts. Staff are automatically notified by SMS/Email of upcoming shifts and any changes made to the schedule. Data from the time clock app is used to automatically populate employee timesheets, which are compared to weekly schedules and managers are alerted to any unscheduled changes. Users can set their own timeframes for clock in/out rounding, and view a live feed of all employee clock ins to see who arrived on-site, and at what time, all without having to be physically present.

All Tanda subscriptions have access to a powerful wage calculation tool, which is connected to all parts of the Tanda platform and simplifies the payroll process. Staff pay and overtime are automatically calculated, and pay items are exported to a range of payroll systems, via native integrations including Xero, QuickBooks Online, ADP, Sage, CloudPayroll, MYOB and more. Reducing the need for manual double entry and delayed reporting cycles.

    Tanda has been a vast improvement for our business and has sped up our payroll processes, created better accountability and viasability. I am excited to see the platform improve.

    Pros

    The Awards team assisting me build the award rules
    the notifications for expired qualifications

    Cons

    The reports function is not customisable. I don't have any use for the reports Tanda has but I do export the data in the system and build my own reports.
    I would like a leave liability by team or business area report. A longest hours worked report.

    I have been promise GPS time punches for a while now and am yet to see any progress made, this is an imperative function for my business.

    i would like the ability to edit the award interpretation before exporting. Currently i export to excel as our Payroll provider is not integrated. So i can manually change what i need to, but then Tanda is different to what was actually paid. I would like the ability to edit in in Tanda so that everything is current, correct and aligned.

    I found the Tanda sales and accounts staff to be too focused on billing and locking customers in to annual contracts than delivering value. You get the felling the sales staff are high fiving each other when they hook up another sucker.
    If there is an issue eg not delivering what you thought you were getting... you just get handed over from one rep to the next. No one takes accountability.
    Most company's during covid shutdown offered support to the hospitality industry in some way... like crediting fees during a shutdown. Not Tanda!
    I tried to cancel my subscription several times prematurely but they did not let me go and then billed my credit card for another 12months without giving me any chance to leave.
    Overall, the worst customer experience I have ever had with a tech company.

    Pros

    The set up and integrations with myob / xero were good.

    Cons

    I wsa led to believe by their sales guys that the intergatons would be No integration with my pos so couldnt view live labour cost percentages by location.
    The mobile app had very limited use also.

    It was a mistake. I should have just gone with Deputy. They are much cheaper, have better integrations and roster customisation. Their app is much better also.

    Customer support has been good and for what we pay, I cannot complain

    Pros

    I like the ease of having staff sign in with a code and being able to track time and use for payroll. Also like a place to keep staff files electronically with the warning on expiries.

    Cons

    It often doesn't update staff sign in on the day. Sometimes yes, sometimes its not until the next day that it shows a staff signing in or out or at all for either. Its very slow to update. It was set on a two week pay period as I was told I have to pay for more the option of bi-monthly and I saw no value in this for one feature. I now have it without the pay increase after almost 2 years.

    Overall Tanda provides enterprise level employee information control with minimal cost.

    The improvements in staff timekeeping, reduction in wage costs and the improved accuracy of our payroll and HR records have been superb.

    In our instance its less than 0.3% of our monthly payroll cost to run Tanda. You really have to do this.

    Pros

    Ease of implementation - so simple. We had 5 locations setup in a day. Adding staff to the system was simple and straightforward

    Cost of hardware is miniscule and doesn't require specialist contractors. Anyone handy with an ipad or similar tablet, (old or new) can setup in minutes.

    Degree of customisation is superb

    Ease of use - very intuitive - no long winded training needed

    Suitable for office and mobile workforce with new GPS feature in mobile app

    Timeclock Interface is very easy to use and simple for our staff to use

    Speed of use - I can do the weekly timesheets and rotas for 50 staff members in about 20 minutes. This use to take hours of company time collating paper timesheets, putting into spreadsheets etc etc etc

    Its more than just a time clock - we have sped up employee enboarding hugely and now have completely accurate personal information, sickness, lateness and holiday records.

    Cons

    Nothing,

    Tanda have taken onboard feedback provided and made some changes/ added features we provided.

    Theyre working through a few minor tweaks, but as a service its continuing to grow.

    my Experience in a few words - sanity saving & so returning control back to the the employer

    Reviewed on 13/3/2018

    Sanity

    Sanity

    Pros

    Ease of use.
    Worked times are self-calculating with the flexibility of different breaks included.
    Allowing more accurate attendance tracking of our employees.
    Links to Award conditions. Allows for automatic Public Holiday & other leave planning.
    Allows interrogation of rosters and attendance data to plan finite resources and show the costs associated with proposed rosters.
    Allows set-up of roster templates (memorised) to be used over and over.
    Allows new employees to fill in their own details into the system. Clerical duties & responsibility back to employees.
    No more missing timesheets or timesheets sitting on the desk of a manger awaiting approval.
    No more 'the dog ate my timesheet' - Frustration and time-wasting just evaporates.
    Allows SMS to be sent to manager and employee if clock-in or clock-out is missing. Gentle reminder that they have stuffed-up (again)..
    Exporting capability of completed timesheets into Reckon & XERO - Priceless. Saves duplication & eliminates transposition errors. A huge time-saver.
    Allows the attachment of approved leave forms (PH/AL/SL/LWOP) to the event, for full traceability/paper-trail.
    Allows to add notes into the timesheet as part of the history of events, i.e. who authorised amended times and why & how this was relayed to payroll.
    The thing I like most about TANDA is the feeling that rostering and payroll is NO longer a frustrating & time-wasting chore that has to be done. I feel in control of my function and my efficiency.

    Cons

    The two control buttons (Clock-in and Clock-out buttons) - even seasoned and reliable employees managed to clock-in (twice) when they were supposed to clock-out. A minor headache, but a redesign would improve the total reliability i.e. if the buttons were further apart or only one showing.
