Hi, we’re foundU and we’re here to help R&CA members through one of the most challenging times in Australian history. We make tools that help you work from anywhere to manage and pay your staff.

How we help:

Keep Employees Safe

With social distancing and isolation, keep your employees safe and move all on-boarding, rostering and HR tasks online. 

Keep Yourself Safe

You can do all your HR and payroll functions from the comfort and safety of your home. Every employee related document is stored in the cloud and can be accessed anywhere, anytime. 

No Contact Time & Attendance

The foundU app allows employees to clock-in/clock-out via geo-location without the need for a communal device.

Don’t Pay More

Staff levels will fluctuate over the coming months. Our pricing is based on ‘active employees’.  If your numbers go up or down, you will only be charged for employees that actually work allowing you to better manage costs.

Plan Ahead with Confidence

As employee circumstances change over the coming months, they can instantly update their availability via their employee app. You will always have real-time workforce availability. 

10 Minute On-Boarding

If you urgently need staff, the foundU Platform can on-board staff in as little as 10 minutes. Once on-boarded, they can be deployed however you choose.  

Free Implementation for R&CA Members + 3 months free

When times are tough, Australians stick together. That’s why we are offering R&CA members three months use of the platform completely free.  On-board as many staff as you want and get ready to deploy them. We won’t charge you a cent.

We handle everything. Let us fully implement the platform, migrate your staff and integrate with your systems. You focus on what else needs doing. 

Implementation is completely free. If you’re willing to face challenge head on, we get the platform up and running in less than two weeks. In no time at all, you will be cutting costs and working more efficiently.

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OUR FREE IMPLEMENTATION

Change is here, whether we like it or not.  But, change is hard.

We want to make it easy for you.

That’s why we make changing to our platform a simple three step process.

Step 1. Easy On-board

Onboarding staff through the foundU platform is simple. Provide us with a document outlining some basic details of the employee and we’ll upload straight into the system. This automatically triggers an email with login details to be sent straight to the employees with instructions on how to complete the onboarding. Employees can do this anywhere, any time on any device. 

As you grow, the process stays the same. One click and the new employee does the rest. 

  

Step 2. Become a Platform Master  

While we’re busy behind the scenes, your customer success manager will be guiding you through the platform. They will deliver a series of personalised webinars exploring key features like Time & Attendance, Rostering and Payroll so you can hit the ground running.  

Our customer success managers have real industry experience and are matched to your business. Rest assured that you are working with someone that knows your sector.

Step 3. Get Insight 

Once you up and ready to go, we run your payroll in tandem with your old system to make sure everything matches up. The best bitthe parallel pay-run will find any errors in your old payroll process – 75% of customers found that they were overpaying or underpaying staff.  

Once testing is complete, you will have a fully compliant, scalable, access-anywhere payroll and HR system that saves you time and money!

“We have been using foundU since May 2019 and Love the functionality. It's the best thing since sliced bread. It's so intuitive and very easy to use. The support has been amazing, you put In a ticket online and get an answer quickly. During the early days/implementation, the staff and support were so helpful. Payroll is so quick- it takes less than 15mins. What we love the most—is that the software puts a lot of responsibility on the staff to make sure their information up to date.”

Talk to Rowena

foundU understands how difficult it can be for R&CA members to on-board employees during this turbulent time. We have put together a short guide on how the foundU Platform can safely and quickly on-board your employees.

Step 1 – Maintain Social Distance

Regardless of COVID-19, the foundU on-boarding process is designed to be done completely on-line from any device. We remove the need for you to personally see staff or review any physical documents.

Step 2 – Get New Employees Fast

In such a fluid environment, we have created a simple, five step process for R&CA members that allows you to on-board staff in as little as 10 minutes.

Every step of the on-boarding process can be done from a mobile phone and document uploads can be done via the phone’s camera.

Step 3 – On-board for Multiple Positions

To make it even easier for R&CA members, employers can create multiple on-boarding journeys that will be automatically be assigned depending on position. You can create as many customised on-boarding processes as you like.

Step 4 – Educate Your Employees

As part of foundU’s partnership with online learning platform GO1, we are offering all customers a free COVID-19 Workplace Ready Course. The course is designed to give both employers and staff the skills and training to adequately respond to the global pandemic (and R&CA members will have access during the free period).

Step 5 – Customise for COVID-19

The foundU on-boarding process is completely customisable and can be tailored to meet your coronavirus policy and procedures.

You can ask new staff to acknowledge health policy and create custom health questionnaires that can include COVID-19 specific questions.

Acceptance of policy and procedure is permanently recorded in the system and new policy updates can be pushed to staff. Anyone that doesn’t accept your updates will be automatically reminded.

Those that don’t take your COVID-19 specific on-boarding steps can also be automatically removed from the process.

Step 6 – Build a Flexible Talent Pool

foundU believes in clear and fair pricing. We only charge for employees that have worked that week. We understand that during this time, R&CA member’s staff numbers may drop, but we want to give you the flexibility to create a staff reserve.

You can on-board as many people as you want without being charged. You can build a talent pool and only deploy staff as needed. When business begins to improve, you can deploy as many staff as you wish while only being charged for those that work.

This is just a short overview of our on-boarding process and how we can help. If you would like a more in-depth explanation or just want to ask a few questions, talk to Rowena at a time of your choosing below.

Rowena has on-boarded multiple hospitality clients to the foundU Platform and in a no-obligation call, will be able to give you expert advice and guidance.

Talk to Rowena

Stuck at home doesn’t mean stuck doing your payroll. With this guide, we show you how the foundU Platform can reduce your payroll time by up to 70%, make work safer and give you flexibility to meet fluctuating staff levels.

Reliable

In-built pay rules (based on either the Award or your EBA) calculate payroll from approved hours. No more manual timesheet interpretation – once we have the days and times, the platform takes care of the rest. Ordinary hours, penalty rates, overtime and any shift allowances are completely automated.

A completely paperless process and zero contact options – good for the environment and helps limit the spread of disease.

Fast

Your entire payroll process can be completed in as little as one hour. If your shift data is accurate, you can run your payroll at the click of a button. No need to manually collate timesheets, check award interpretation or confirm financial details.

For hospitality clients, we see an average of a 34% reduction in payroll processing time. Some clients have reduced payroll time by days and even passed payroll duties to venue managers because it’s so easy.

Flexible

With fluctuating staff numbers, we understand how difficult it is for R&CA members. We understand that you may have to pay staff outside of normal pay runs and adjust on the fly. With the foundU Platform, you can run payroll whenever you choose.

If you need to back-pay staff or make any other adjustments, just login, add the relevant information and action in our payroll processing page.

If you are moving staff around between various roles to meet changing demands, pay stress free as the foundU Platform handles all award interpretation, variations between positions and delivers a compliant pay run.

If you have any questions about the foundU payroll process, book in for a free, no-obligation call with Rowena below.

Rowena has helped hospitality clients improve payroll and is available to offer expert guidance and advice for free.

Talk to Rowena

During the COVID-19 pandemic, responding to fluctuating staff levels and rostering them efficiently could be the key to survival.

The foundU rostering system gives R&CA members the tools to manage costs, find the right staff fast and communicate your latest COVID-19 company updates.

Here’s how we help:

Budget Controls

You assign a budget against your weekly roster and instantly see live staff costings. You can set limits and see what individual shifts are costing you. Allow other staff to create rosters and block shifts from being added the moment the budget limit is reached.

For emergency and ad hoc shifts, we give you the power to add additional allowances on the fly. If a staff member is covering a different position from their normal, you can account for this by adding an allowance.

This will automatically calculate during payroll.

Finding the Right Staff

You can see your staff availability at a glance. See who are on sick leave and holiday, who are under fatigue rules and any conflicting shifts. You can also organise employees by hours worked and assign shifts accordingly.

If you need staff fast, you can offer shifts to all employees that are available and meet your criteria. Staff are notified by the foundU app, click yes and are given all the relevant shift details.

Communicate with Staff

Staff communication is key – never more so than in current times. This doesn’t mean reaching for the phone or sending bulk emails. Instead, the foundU rostering system allows you to:

Notify all rostered staff via the ‘Roster Notes’ function i.e you can remind staff to wash hands and maintain social distancing.

Managers can notify staff working on a particular day to sign the latest COVID-19 policy documents (done in app) via the ‘Day Notes’ function.

Managers can go to a granular level and remind certain staff of a task like ordering more hand sanitiser with the ‘Shift Comments’ function.

We want to make staff communication easy as possible during this difficult time.

“We’ve only been using the foundU app for a short time and it has made our Team Member’s lives a lot easier. Everyone has really embraced it and finds it easy to use. It’s like having the whole website but simplified. As soon as a couple of staff downloaded it and started using it, word spread like wildfire and they all downloaded it. It’s another way of making things easier and quicker.”
