Hi, I'm Mateo. I run a fast-food franchise in the Boston area. Running my business can be incredibly challenging. With the constant pressure to meet sales targets, manage inventory, and maintain a happy workforce, there is never a dull moment. And on top of all that, there are the inevitable issues that arise when running a franchise business.
One of the biggest pain points I face is retaining staff. High employee turnover is a common issue in the restaurant industry, and it can be particularly challenging for franchise owners. With so many other fast-food restaurants in the area, it can be tough to keep employees from jumping ship to a competitor.
Another issue I face is managing cash flow. It can be tough to ensure that I have enough money on hand to pay my employees on time, particularly during the slower months of the year. And when employees do leave, it can be challenging to ensure that their final paycheck is accurate and paid on time.
To address these issues, I tried a variety of different solutions. I experimented with various employee retention strategies, such as offering bonuses or incentives for employees who stayed with the company for a certain amount of time. I also tried various cash management solutions, such as opening a line of credit or working with a payroll company to manage employee payments.
While some of these solutions worked to some extent, I still felt like there was something missing. I needed a solution that could address both employee retention and cash flow management in a more holistic way.
That's when I discovered OrbisPay and their on-demand pay solution. At first, I was skeptical. I had never heard of on-demand pay before, and I wasn't sure if it was something that would be beneficial for my business.
But then I learned more about how it works. Essentially, OrbisPay allows employees to access a portion of their earned wages whenever they need it, rather than having to wait for their next paycheck. And as an employer, I don't have to worry about managing the additional cash flow since OrbisPay fronts the money to the employees.
What really sold me on the idea was the fact that it didn't cost me anything to try. OrbisPay offers their on-demand pay solution for free to employers, and my employees only pay a small fee per transaction if they decide to use the service.
So I decided to give it a try, and I'm so glad I did. On-demand pay has made my life and business so much better. I wish I had implemented it sooner.
Since implementing on-demand pay with OrbisPay, I have seen a significant improvement in both employee retention and cash flow management.
For starters, my employees are much happier. They appreciate the flexibility that on-demand pay provides, and it has helped to reduce their financial stress. And when employees are happy, they are more likely to stick around, reducing employee turnover and the costs associated with hiring and training new staff.
From a cash flow management perspective, on-demand pay has been a game-changer. I no longer have to worry about having enough money on hand to pay my employees on time, as OrbisPay fronts the money to my employees. And because employees are accessing a portion of their earned wages, rather than an advance on their next paycheck, it doesn't impact my payroll cycle or create additional work for me.
Overall, I would highly recommend on-demand pay with OrbisPay to any franchise owner. It has truly been a lifesaver for me and my business.
As for my advice to other franchise owners, I would say don't be afraid to try new things. It can be easy to fall into a routine and stick with what's familiar, but sometimes you have to take a chance and try something new.
And when it comes to employee retention and cash flow management, on-demand pay with OrbisPay is definitely worth a try. It's a simple, cost-effective solution that can have a big impact on your business and your employees' well-being.
As I mentioned earlier, I wish I had implemented on-demand pay sooner. But now that I have, I can't imagine running my business without it.
