A long-established entertainment destination, the Chinook Bowladrome offers public and league bowling to the Calgary community. With a full range snack bar, the site also appeals to groups for parties and events. The owner believes in giving back to the community and offers a Kids Bowl Free program and a Bowl for Kids fundraiser.
With numerous departments and cash flows, the manager spends a good portion of her day on administrative
bookkeeping activities and didn’t want the additional burden of doing payroll from scratch.
The Bowladrome staff consists of many part-time students that have extremely variable schedules (the owner works their schedules around their class times) and tends to turnover frequently. Setting up new employees needs to be easy.
Getting her staff their pay in a quick and compliant way is a top priority.
Ceridian Powerpay improves the accuracy and timeliness of Chinook Bowladrome’s HR and payroll processes through automated technologies. Powerpay saves the small business owner time in paying her employees ad provides peace-of-mind that her business is compliant and can provide the government with what it needs (e.g., tax, CPP, EI, tax forms, ROEs, etc.). In addition, working with Ceridian offers access to knowledgeable payroll resources.
The owner of Chinook Bowladrome estimates she can complete payroll for her staff of 22 in 10 minutes. Setting up new employees is extremely easy and intuitive when using Powerpay. When the owner has encountered challenges — such as a stop payment — she’s received immediate, competent, expert help
Powerpay allows the owner to focus on what’s important to her — her business and her employees who rely on their paychecks.
According to Heinrich, “Even though my accounting software offers the ability to do payroll, I rely on Powerpay. It’s safe, easy and there’s no guesswork.”
