Tanda is a web-based workforce management, attendance, and timesheet platform designed for small to medium-sized businesses and large enterprise companies with up to 200 or more employees. The software solution is accompanied by a physical time-clock hardware mounted in the workplace where workers can quickly clock in and out for their shifts.
The cloud-based workforce management solution comes with a wide range of employee management-centric features and services such as time off/overtime management, payroll integration, wage automation, real-time reporting, employee scheduling, SMS notifications, electronic clock in, mobile applications, and more.
The mobile applications for Tanda are available for both Android and iOS systems and come with a native time clock, enabling employees to clock in and out from virtually any location, which is perfect for businesses managing a substantial number of workers on the field.
Tanda is geared towards addressing three main tasks—employee clock in/out, shift approval or scheduling, and payroll management. It works by allowing employers, supervisors, managers, and HR to initially build their roster. You can build detailed rosters that are based on teams and locations. The process is quick, simple, and can all be done online through Tandas rostering tool.
Next, managers will then send schedule or shift information to their staff via email or SMS, thus making things a lot easier and more convenient for employees. They can simply check their messages to see when or what time they’re scheduled to go to work. Employers can then download and use the free Tanda Time Clock app from Google Play of the App Store so workers are able to easily clock in and out of their shifts.
Human resources, supervisors, and managers are able to take advantage of the web-based solution’s automated timesheets. When employees clock in or out of their shifts, specific information like the exact time they clocked in or out and the amount of time they worked is automatically updated in the Tanda database. You simply have to access the information through Tanda to see exactly how many hours a certain employee has worked or how many shifts he or she has covered.
By having the ability to figure out how much time employees have worked, and therefore how many shifts they’ve taken, you are able to process payroll more easily and accurately.
Speaking of seamless integration, Tanda helps to streamline your business through robust integrations with various business point-of-sale (POS), accounting, workforce management, and productivity solutions, including Google Calendar, Retail Express, Ascender, Attaché, Idealpos, MYOB and MYOB Ace Payroll, Xero, Kounta, Gpayroll, and QuickBooks.
In addition to employee scheduling, clock in/out and payroll management, Tanda also offers other features and capabilities to help make workforce management a lot less time-consuming and efficient.
Free employee onboarding software
The integrated employee onboarding module is essentially a paperless onboarding solution for your employees. This means no data entry necessary for managers and new employees will be able to conveniently enter their personal information and bank details (as well as declare their Tax File Number online).
Online leave management system
Just like the employee onboarding software solution, Tanda’s leave management system is paperless as well, since it is online-based. It is a solution designed to make submission, approval, and employee leave-tracking a more convenient and efficient process.
Some of the main features of the system include a leave calendar, roster and payroll integration, the ability to view leave accruals, and apply for leave from anywhere and leave documentation.
Tanda workforce management software boasts of smart and highly efficient web-based services. In addition to key features mentioned above like employee onboarding, rostering, time clock attendance, leave management, payroll integration, and so on, the platform also offers three smart services—Cognitive Payroll, Cognitive Rosters, and Predictive Workforce.
Cognitive payroll service solution
Cognitive Payroll is a smart payroll solution that allows businesses to focus their resources on more important tasks by building their intelligence through self-learning and cognitive workforce pay algorithms.
Cognitive Payroll changes your company’s payroll into an automated process with automatic payroll management, automatic updates, and accurate and compliant payroll infrastructure constantly updated with Tanda’s best practice framework.
Intelligent workforce planning
Cognitive Rosters is a service that allows you to find the most qualified personnel to take on specific roles/positions in your company and the appropriate rates of those slots. It helps to automate the decision-making process through an automatic allocation of labor based on the company’s constraints. It facilitates testing of a wide array of scenarios for every roster to efficiently find the optimal solution.
Just like Cognitive Payroll, the Cognitive Rosters service is a smart self-learning system as well. It is always improving by self-learning and picking up crucial data from the company’s past rosters, changes made over time, and comparing the information to the current roster to find the most ideal solution that suits the current workforce needs of the organization.
Trademarked predictive workforce solution
What if you can predict the future and figure out your workforce demand? How many employees will you need in a year or two as your business continues to grow? What kind of roles or positions will soon be opening up that you need to fill up? Predictive Workforce allows you to predict your staffing demand as your business prospers and continues to expand.
The Tanda proprietary Predictive Workforce service enables you to find out how many staff you need, for any aspect of your business, at any given time. Make your staff more efficient and subsequently profitable, by determining staffing levels with intelligent algorithms and eliminating human error in your rostering process.
Tanda offers flexible enterprise pricing designed to work seamlessly for any type of business at any level or size. The actual cost, though, is available only upon request. Interested parties will have to contact the vendor directly for a quote.
Products for the pricing plans may include Rostering, Time and Attendance, and the Tanda-exclusive Cognitive Payroll. You have two options: the Standard plan or the Enterprise plan. The former is good for more than 15 employees while the latter is tailored towards large enterprise businesses with over 200 employees. The Tanda Cognitive Rosters and Predictive Workforce services are available only in the Enterprise package.
Additionally, custom reporting, on-site setup, custom implementation, and project management are all Enterprise package features not available with the Standard plan.
