Currumbin-Palm Beach RSL is located in the heart of the Gold Coast, one of Australia’s top tourist destinations. Founded in 1977, the club now has 175 employees and more than 20,000 members.
There were two main issues that led the club to look for a new solution. First, the existing software was unreliable in its interpretation of awards and required a regular amount of manual overriding. There was particular difficulty in differentiating between National Employment Standard Awards and the award for Registered and Licensed Clubs which increased the time needed to properly process payroll.
The second issue was rostering. The old system did not accurately record hours clocked by employees and only provided part of the necessary information to kickoff payroll procedures.
After considering several options, the club chose Sage WageEasy. The payroll software’s easy of use, simple implementation, and automation features were some of the defining factors that led to Palm Beach RSL’s decision to migrate to Sage WageEasy.
Sage WageEasy immediately reduced the time required to process the weekly payroll by 50%. The team was no longer required to do twice the work or spend hours manually overriding mistakes in the awards interpretations. The club now has complete confidence that the weekly payroll for their 175 employees will be done quickly and without error.
