Representing almost 20,000 members in dozens of technical industries, the Electrical Trades Union Victoria Branch has a long history of fighting to secure pacesetting wage increases, safer workplaces, better training and more employment opportunities for its members.
As one of the most successful unions in Australia, ETU Victoria understands that to provide its employees that same dedication and security, it takes a robust and reliable payroll solution.
ETU Victoria General Manager of Business Services, Rod Dalglish, began using Sybiz Visipay when he joined the organisation and says the advantages are obvious.
"Sybiz Visipay payroll is far easier to use than previous products that I have used, including Sage Micropay and MYOB Payroll," Rod tells us.
Processing pay for up to 45 employees weekly with Sybiz Visipay isn't just intuitive and user-friendly, Rod says the great range of functionality has eased his workload.
"[Employee Self Service] functionality actually reduces the time taken to process the payroll every week."
ESS provides employees a secure online portal to view payslips, check leave balances and lodge leave requests.
"On payday there is no need to go looking for paper based leave forms as ESS stores all of this information and notifies you of leave requests when processing the payroll."
Management controls determine who in the organisation is notified when leave requests have been lodged, and who has the ability to approve or reject.
Rod also notes Sybiz Visipay's reporting capability helps him track ETU Victoria's payroll and leave requests,
"ESS has great reporting functionality which shows leave requested, leave approved and leave cancelled as well as an archived functionality for leave already processed."
As the payroll backbone of one of Australia's most dynamic trade unions for over a decade, Rod says ETU Victoria is ready to discover even greater agility with the latest evolution of Sybiz Visipay, "I am looking forward to the benefits of using the cloud based version of Visipay."
From the time saved processing leave and pay, to SuperStream-ready superannuation capability, to the incredible reporting functionality providing real time oversight of leave trends - Sybiz Visipay provides a fast, powerful payroll solution for Australia's leading organisations.
"I would have no hesitation in recommending Sybiz Visipay," Rod says.
