The New and Improved Kronos Workforce Central
Kronos strives to innovate and give users the tools they want and need. “A big part of every single release is ‘Where can we innovate? Where can we do things differently?’,” said Bill Bartow, VP of Global Product Management at Kronos. The latest major release—Kronos Workforce Central 8—boasts industry-specific functions, insightful reporting, and scheduling focused on global compliance. With the 8.1 update, the system aims to further support common business goals among users: compliance, labor costs, productivity, and employee engagement.
One of the biggest changes in Kronos Workforce Central 8 is the intuitive look and feel. The platform is Java- and (almost) Flash-free and built on HTML5, and offers a “rich and engaging” UX. More than just pretty, these enhancements enable employees to do their jobs more easily and in a way that works best for them. There is a strong movement among Kronos users to stay current and on the bleeding edge of innovation, and these features do just that. But the significant changes in Workforce Central 8 and 8.1 do pose some obstacles.
