Future-proof your business with digital tools and integrated payments

With measures such as the Federal
Government’s JobKeeper Payment
Scheme ending on 28 March 2021,
a slight cooling in the country’s
economy wouldn’t have been a
surprise. However, that hasn’t been
the case.

Spenda: A year in review

What a year 2020 has been. We all had specific hopes and aspirations for the year and as we know, it’s turned out to be a very different outcome for everyone. Two words that sum up 2020 are uncertain and unpredictable, and while it’s been a tough year for business in general, we’ve decided to take a quick trip down memory lane and look back at the positives, the happy moments, and what we achieved for our customers.

The offsite experience: Why fun company get-togethers are key to boosting employee engagement

For many businesses, the team bonding experience often stops at the weekly Monday team catch up session, or perhaps the CEO delivers a regular update from the boardroom, and then you might end the week with some Friday afternoon office nibbles and drinks.
