A Better Way to Manage People... PeopleRoster

There is a Better Way to Manage People... It's Called "PeopleRoster™"

Technology is ever changing, and so are the tools that modern management has at its disposal to enable them to better manage the people in their charge.

PeopleRoster™ is a Tauranga based company, with offices in Australia, US, and soon the UK that specializes in developing people management software. As well as realizing tangible cost savings, one of the common catch phrases that PeopleRoster™ customers use is that PeopleRoster™ software has given them a real-time greater degree of transparency in their businesses. Both employees and employers have found the simplicity of the PeopleRoster™ suite of software a bonus in their daily tasks.

PeopleRoster™ uses the Internet to deliver a range of services for all levels of staff. PeopleRoster™ handles:

- Roster Management

- Full Roster Costing

- Budget/Roster/Actual Analysis

- Electronic Timesheets

- Time Clocks

- Payroll Processing (GoldPay™)

- Management Controls and realtime reporting

- Staff Leave & Online Pay Slips

- Employee Self Service

- And much more

One of PeopleRoster™ advantages is that it does not need to be installed on the customer’s site. All that is needed is access to a computer and an internet connection. So if you are away on holiday and need to view or approve something, it’s just a computer away. The advantages to the busy business owner in using PeopleRoster™ are many. How about getting rid of those pesky handwritten timesheets? Or would it make life simpler if you could process all rosters and timesheets electronically, push a button and process your payroll? PeopleRoster™ doesn’t come with hefty fees either. Most customers pay on a per employee usage basis, so it is not hard on the cash flow.

With changing technology comes changing work habits. Once rosters have been entered into PeopleRoster™, this information is immediately available to the workforce. Perhaps management would like to use the smart roster facility and skills-match your jobs to your workforce? You may wish to send the roster to your staff members by SMS message, where they can accept or decline, and have that information immediately posted into your PeopleRoster™ software.

The employee self service module allows any staff you determine to view their leave entitlement by their department, and apply for leave directly online. This leave application can either be accepted or declined, with an e-mail notifying the applicant of their leave application. Here’s what one customer says about PeopleRoster™.

“PeopleRoster™ and GoldPay™ have made a huge difference in our entire payroll process from timesheets, leave recording to PAYE payments. We went live in April 2006 after two pay parallel runs.

PeopleRoster™ is very easy to use and saves a lot of resources that were previously dedicated to manual checking. There is no paperwork as everything is electronic & accessible through the internet. PeopleRoster™ and GoldPay™ have simplified the work process and made the system transparent and accessible to staff and Management”

- Esther Eu (Emirates, Finance & Administration Manager – New Zealand)

If it’s time to consider a change from existing manual systems and written timesheets, perhaps it’s also time to contact PeopleRoster™ today at service[at] to request a demonstration, or visit our website for more information at


“We believe our solution increases efficiency by 2-10%. This enables PeopleRoster to reduce overhead expenses by approximately $40,000 - $200,000 in the first year (based on a 2 million per year payroll) it pays for itself
