Business Name

Roster With Ross

What do you do?

The ROSS system is the centre piece of a workforce management plan. Comprising six cloud-based modules like payroll and time & attendance based around a core of efficient and effective rostering, ROSS helps any business with a pool of casual and full-time staff.

ROSS takes into account KPI targets, awards, penalties and staff availability to empower front-line managers to complete rosters on-time and on-budget so they know what their wage costs will be before the week starts - saving $85,000 a year! Payroll staff will love ROSS too, as approved actual hours worked can be exported to many payroll systems. Over 15,000 staff are rostered by ROSS each week; visit rosterwithross.com

How many pages of illustration do you need?

5 separate figures in 5 different files

What do you need illustrated?

I need 5 graphics for the home page of our new website. Immediately above the figures it will say "How can ROSS help you?"
The theory is that a user (usually one of the five types of business people, that's who we're targeting) will visit our site and immediately be able to identify with one of the five graphics and say, "that's me." They'll click on that figure to get more information about the specific ways the product can help them.

5 types of business people in appropriate dress for their role.
• Restaurant manager
• Operations Manager (business person)
• Chief Financial Officer (suited figure)
• Franchisee (for example owner of a franchised quick service restaurant)
• Line Manager (Manager)
