As Director of Human Resources for Matchbox Food Group, Tim Rogers, working with only one HR generalist, is responsible for HR and payroll for 1,500 restaurant employees in 11 locations, primarily in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. We recently spoke to Tim about the integration of the ALINE Card by ADP® with Instant TIPS by GratSync® a Gratuity Solutions® product, to pay employee tips in almost “real-time.” Tim sang the praises of this solution for Matchbox, for restaurant management and for tipped employees. Here’s what he had to say: IMPLEMENTATION IS FLAWLESS, WITH FIRST-DAY SERVICE: Even though I had previous pay card experience and was well-versed using it, I still had a dedicated ADP implementation specialist and she was just amazing.

She ordered the ALINE Welcome Kits containing personalized cards and they arrived within 10 days. For each new location, we...
