A baker dozing
Being the technological type – a “technosaurus” if you will – my friend came to me for some advice.
She runs a small bakery in the city centre and has taken on new premises as she continues her quest for world domination. I can just imagine her trying to overthrow the government armed with a sausage roll and a jam doughnut…
Anyway, enough of that.
The reason she required my help was due to the numbers of staff she’d need to employ given the expansion of the business.
No, she didn’t want me to stick on an apron and smile sweetly for the customers – she was looking for a computer system that would help with the management of her employees.
She required a system to calculate her payroll and make sure staff were given the correct amount of wages and on time. I recommended a system from Carval – I’d heard only good things about it – and it seemed perfect for her requirements.
I installed the system for her, performed a demonstration and I was on my merry way.
Well that’s been four weeks now and she is loving it; it’s easy to use – even for a technophobe – and the staff are delighted they’re being paid in hard cash rather than savoury snacks.
As for me? Well, I expect to be treated like royalty whenever I visit the bakery.
The next time you hear from me I’ll have gained four stones and unable to type due to the vast quantities of sugar jamming my keyboard.
