  • Developing a new/innovative online payroll and timesheet system for franchisees

Why can this be claimed

Sometimes businesses in the hospitality industry have some unique constraints (building layout, rostering requirements, multiple sites, etc) that requires some degree of innovation in systems meaning a bespoke solution is required and technology is advanced.
