We have recently become active users on Tanda and manage 30+ staff on the system. It has been amazing so far and has decreased payroll processing time in Xero by at least 1 hour per week.
The automation has already shown an improvement in accuracy and we are looking forward to using all of the services provided by Tanda in the future!

Tanda is a huge time saver for our business. Time spent on rostering is less than half what it was despite a significant increase in the number of staff. We also find it economical and the help team are second to none. I don't even need to be at the computer to have my questions answered, I email the question and when I come back to my desk an hour or so later my answer is there. We haven't considered using any other service and it integrates with XERO brilliantly. Thanks tanda team.

Tanda is utterly superb and the integration with Xero works like a dream.

Tanda - Xero Payroll Automation App  

I love Tanda it has been a time saving god send to me and my business. The only issue I have come across on one employee only is Tanda has exported a 38 hour time sheet to xero but it has come up in xero as 37.99 hours. I don't know how to fix this glitch or how it has come about. I just need to keep an eye on her payroll.

I implemented TANDA into the workplace over 1 1/2 years ago. Even though we weren't using it to its full potential at the beginning, it was still a great time saver for both staff and payroll. Over time, we have unlocked more of its personality and it has proven to be a great add on to XERO payroll. It is very user friendly and seems to integrate fairly seamlessly. If you are looking for a Time and Attendance system, I highly recommend TANDA.

I introduced Tanda to my small business in July 2016 to streamline payroll activities and monitor employee attendance. Since its introduction I have seen a regular reduction in weekly salaries of nearly 10%. I have saved the cost of a years' subscription with Tanda in less than a month using the clock in and clock out function. For that reason alone, I recommend it highly. It integrates seamlessly with Xero, what took me four hours of jumping back and forth between software, is now finished and complete it 30 minutes. The IT support of Tanda is very comprehensive, nothing is too much trouble.

I have been using Tanda since 01 July 2016. We used to use the very out of date manual clock card system to do our timesheets. Literally a whole day of work with a calculator and scribbled notes. Tanda helped us set up an electronic time clock and with the nature of our business being deliveries it is so easy to get all of our drivers' timesheets perfect! Tanda Support has been highly efficient and our fortnightly payroll has now become a speedy and accurate process. The feed through to Xero is quick and very accurate. Thank you Tanda!

I have been using Tanda now for a couple of weeks and could not be happier with it. I have implemented and used a few payroll systems before and have found Tanda to be one of the easiest to implement and use. The support I have received has been exceptional. All the staff at Tanda are more than willing to give advice and help you out and have found that no matter who answers the phone they all have had the knowledge to help with any enquiry I have had. Well done Tanda you have made my life so much easier.

I have 19 casual staff, 3 salaried, 2 apprentices and a permanent part time employee. With Tanda export to Xero and Xero export to my bank, weekly payroll takes under an hour. It used to take half the day. Well worth the money.

Elizabeth Slakey  

To be honest this is my first business, and I've never paid staff or approved hours or anything before.. but I would hate to think how managers and business owners have done it in the past.. this way seems very easy and very automated.. so glad I live in the future! ;)

Tanda saves hours of work each week calculating and entering payroll, setting up rosters and tracking staff hours, and gives piece of mind that Award rules are being interpreted correctly, exports easily and quickly into Xero.

Suzanne Pedler  

Fantastic support and assistance with set-up. Moving from calculating payroll manual to Tanda has saved huge amounts of time and eliminated human error. The integration with Xero is excellent.

Emma Forbes  

We have been working with Tanda/Xero for a number of months now and it is a huge help to our small business.
The support is excellent

As a bookkeeper, specialising in payroll services, I have worked with many rostering system that integrate and export data into payroll/accounting systems. I have found Tanda to be one of the easiest to work with. The standout point of difference for me was the excellent after sale support. Each time I had reason to contact Tanda, the staff were fantastic, and took on complete ownership of solving each issue. This happened even when it wasn't directly related to Tanda! It also helps that the call centre is local and the staff have intimate understanding of Australian business and payroll. 10 out of 10 Tanda...well done!

I just exported 32 timesheets from Tanda to Xero for payroll, and it only took a minute. So much faster than paper.


Tanda has been very responsive to our business in trying to work with us to customise for our business and work through initial glitches. The export is working much better now and is much faster than paper.

Ana Kolembus  

The export function saves so much time and mitigates all irregularities and discrepancies.

Calvin Leung  

Pretty easy to work with, and when there are any queries, issues, processed efficiently and expeditiously. Pretty happy.

Tony Freeman  

Yes, i just exported 9 timesheets from Tanda into Xero. So easy. Loved it.

Vy Tran  

I just exported 20 timesheets from Tanda to Xero for payroll and it only took a minute...So much faster than paper

Kim Versteden  

I have saved a lot of time every fortnight from changing from manual timesheets over to the tanda timeclock. Once set up, it's awesome and worth the money!

I have a small business with 7 staff, for nearly a decade I have been manually entering wages into a spreadsheet then transferring them across to a wages software program to then process the wages. Tanda makes the whole process just a couple of clicks and has saved me hours of work. The import from Tanda into Xero is seamless, robust and almost instant. At the end of the day a program is only as good as its support and the support team at Tanda have always gone the extra step. Feeling the love thank you!

Tanda export to XERO has saved me hours in double entry, the export is seemless and is errorless. I love it
