A Vietnamese startup company has developed an app that supports employers in supervising the employees’ activities, arranging work shifts, and keeping track of overtime work.
The software, Tanca, makes it easy for employers of local diners, restaurants, coffee shops, and milk tea shops to keep track of employees’ shifts, working hours, as well as other complex and time-consuming tasks.
Tanca, a product of Di dong xanh, a Vietnamese mobile app developer, not only helps supervising employees but also facilitating other human resource-related tasks such as rearranging shifts, keeping track of those who change shifts and reporting number of working hours of each employee.
Users only need to sign up for an account on the Tanca website to start using the software.
Tanca uses location detecting on the mobile devices of each employee so as to keep track of the time employees come to work and when they leave, which is also current global trend.
“You are no longer going to waste money on timekeeping machines no matter where the employees work,” Tran Viet Quan, founder and managing director of Di Dong Xanh said.
“This is a useful solution for businesses that still implement timekeeping devices while they have many part-time employees and employees without fixed schedule.”
Tanca not only supports the supervision of the employees, it also makes other internal activities simpler.
Many tasks normally involve approving signatures on written papers including proposals, financial plans, accounting tasks, and asking for a leave, can now be managed on the app.
“Most of the tasks can be done digitally, even meetings can be done online using smartphones, not requiring employees to be present at the office for the meeting,” Quan said, implying that it also helps with managing employees that work remotely which is becoming increasingly common.
The application has received many positive responses.
Do Van Huy, CEO at Netlink Co, one of Google’s advertising partner companies in Vietnam, said Tanca proved efficient in managing employees while also cutting short many complicated procedures.
“We saved up to 50 percent of our costs,” Huy said.
Another Tanca user, Pham Quang Huy, said the app allows him as an employer to supervise where the employees are and keep track of their shifts, without the need of any manual procedures and complex documents.
He also added that thanks to the application, communication among employees, gift-exchanging, and group meetings became much more convenient.
All the data in the process of working is stored electronically, which makes it easy to find and cross-check when needed.
Tanca now boasts some 200 customers in Ho Chi Minh City including both Vietnamese and foreign companies, which find the app to be an effective solution to human resource problems.
“Tanca currently serves many small and medium businesses, especially retailers such as restaurants, coffee shops, and English centers,” Quan said.
