If you didn't realise it was possible to have your staff roster automatically update your account records, this might be of interest. Here's another
Here's another trick if you're running a business. By linking your accounting and your rostering system, you can have your payroll updated automatically.
For example, we notice that the cloud-based Roster with ROSS rostering system now integrates with Xero cloud accounting.
It's aimed particularly at retail and hospitality operators, and the idea is that by linking the twi systems it saves time and effort.
For example, when a manager or supervisor approves an employee's hours worked in Roster with ROSS, the information is transferred to Xero's payroll function.
Similarly, if an employee updates their bank details in Roster with ROSS, their records in Xero are altered to match.
There's also the ability to link earnings rates in Xero to penalty wage rates in Roster with ROSS.
One user of both systems is Jason Williams, who operates two Subway stores in Victoria. "When I go on holidays, I can simply and easily delegate my payroll to my store manager, Ali. I can see everything Ali has done; I have complete oversight since he has his own logins for ROSS, Xero and internet banking," he is quoted as saying on the Ross blog.
Roster with ROSS also integrates with Wage Easy, MYOB, Sage MicrOpay and Reckon for payroll, and OrderMate, MICROS, MaitreD, DPos, ImPOS and Idealpos for POS (for example, so you can relate hourly sales or footfall figures to staffing levels, allowing fine-tuning of the roster).
