Feast It was founded in 2016 by co-founders Digby Vollrath and Hugo Campbell and is now the UK’s leading event planning platform. With a background in the events industry, they’ve used their wealth of knowledge to handpick the best UK independent suppliers so that their customers can easily plan and manage their own events. They’ve done this so well, they’ve managed to raise over £9 million investment to date and are growing quickly with a team approaching 50 strong.
Nice one Feast It.
All that growth means there is a large payroll to process every month. Keeping up with this growing success means that their Head of Finance, Yousif Oghanna, spends the best part of a day ensuring all salary payments go out on time and correctly.
This involves the torturous process of manually entering each employees details every single month in order to get all 50 salary payments out correctly and on time. Time he would rather focus elsewhere.
So when Yousif discovered that _rebank integrated with Xero and allowed batch payments, he decided to give it a go. After all, he’d been thinking about ways to streamline his payroll process to make it faster, easier and scalable.
To his surprise the process was stunningly simple. Complete payroll as normal through Xero (works with Quickbooks too). All that’s left is a quick CSV file download and then a matter of dragging and dropping into rebank.
That’s really it. Click “send batch payment” and Yousif is done. Nothing to it. We even timed it. 12 seconds.
