Which Software Will Best Suit Your Company?

Workforce management software can improve your efficiency and profitability, while also making it easier to provide consistently high-quality support. 

The right software will simplify your processes and help you stay on top of everything from staff and client matching to rostering, support plan management, funds management, progress notes, invoicing and billing, and much more.

Not all software is equal, however, so keep reading as we compare two popular platforms: workforce management software Tanda and our NDIS software, ShiftCare.

Both platforms have multiple attractive features for NDIS providers. However, when you start comparing the finer details, significant differences emerge. Let’s break down what sets them apart so you can choose the best software for your business.

What Is Tanda?

Tanda is a workforce management platform centred around rostering, attendance and awards compliance. It caters to the middle and upper market of users, including large multinationals managing upwards of 500 employees at a time. 

Despite not being NDIS-specific software, it boasts plenty of useful features for providers, including SCHADS awards and quick and accurate payrolls. 

The brand continues to operate under the name Tanda in the Australian market. Internationally, however, it’s known as Workforce. With offices in the UK and Southeast Asia, it employs up to 200 people worldwide.


What Is ShiftCare?

ShiftCare is an NDIS platform that offers workforce management, client management, support and funds management, invoicing, billing and notes management.

It stands out from other workforce management software for its:

Advanced rostering settings designed with NDIS providers and aged care workers in mind.

You can view team members’ availability, set up group recurring shifts, and switch between per-client and per-staff views of the roster. Plus, the split-shifts feature will allow you to assign multiple clients and activities to individual carers’ shifts.

Compliance features that will keep you audit-ready.

With ShiftCare, documentation management is simple. Progress notes and incident reports can be securely recorded on the go. Expiry notifications will keep your care plans and other key documentation up to date. What’s more, with your documents safely stored in the cloud in Australia, you can rest assured that you’re meeting your data protection obligations.

Best-in-class support that will make using ShiftCare easy.

The software is intuitive, but just in case, you’ll also have access to a detailed help section, online webinars and onboarding videos. If you can’t find the information you need, there’s a proactive customer service team ready and waiting to help you out.

Why ShiftCare Is a Favourite of NDIS Providers

Both Tanda and ShiftCare offer a range of workforce management features that will support companies across multiple industries. 

Users choose Tanda for the quick and accurate payrolls and SCHADS awards. Plus, its rostering features make it an excellent choice for hospitality management or retail spaces.

ShiftCare, in addition to payroll management, has numerous features designed with NDIS businesses in mind. This includes NDIS pricing integration and NDIS plans and funds management.

Additionally, ShiftCare allows users to roster workers directly with end clients. For aged care and disability service providers, this means you can assign team members multiple clients per shift, and even separate the time with clients into different service codes and tasks.

And with client documentation management, progress notes, and a friends and family portal, you’ll have all the tools you need to remain NDIS-compliant and prepared for audits.
