Kronos Incorporated Key Developments

Callaway Golf Company Selects Kronos' Solutions Deployed in the Kronos Cloud to Globally Standardize Workforce Management Processes

Kronos Incorporated announced that Callaway Golf Company has selected its solutions deployed in the Kronos Cloud to globally standardize workforce management processes. Callaway Golf selected Kronos time and attendance and absence management applications to accurately collect employee time-worked data and minimize compliance risks associated with leave laws. The Kronos solution will integrate with Callaway Golf's SAP ERP system, improving the overall accuracy of labor data entering the ERP system. Callaway Golf is deploying the Kronos applications in the Kronos Cloud, allowing Kronos to perform all configuration, maintenance, upgrades, and support of the workforce management solution. This will enable the manufacturer to focus more on business operations while keeping costs down, as it won't require additional IT resources. For improved efficiency, Callaway Golf also selected mobile applications from Kronos -- available on both smartphones and tablets -- making it easier for managers and employees to complete a wide range of workforce-related tasks from any location, at any time. The instant visibility and mobility on labor-related issues while on-the-go will particularly benefit Callaway Golf's population of field-based employees. Callaway Golf chose Kronos to replace a payroll service bureau it previously used, as Kronos can easily and effectively support the global needs of multinational organizations as well as provide local, region-specific knowledge and support. In addition, the previous payroll service bureau could not fully automate and handle union-specific requirements -- a process now automated and simplified by Kronos.

Kronos Incorporated Receives Workforce Management Contract from US Communities

Kronos Incorporated has received a workforce management contract from the US Communities Government Purchasing Alliance, a government purchasing cooperative. This is the first time that the US Communities has provided a competitively solicited contract for workforce management technology. Kronos was awarded the contract based on the company's unparalleled market leadership in the public sector with thousands of successful implementations. Kronos was also selected based on its deep functionality for complex workforces; low cost of ownership for less complex workforces; well-established cloud computing operations; and proven scalability to meet the needs of organizations of all sizes. By serving as the lead public agency in the evaluation process, Harford County Public Schools in Maryland is corroborating the need for such technology in the public sector. By selecting Kronos, the school district is looking to control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and improve productivity - enabling it to further invest in the community it serves.
