Project: Re-Implementation Assessment for Lawson Human Resource Suite and Kronos Time & Attendance Systems
Though a university hospital had implemented Lawson Human Resources and Payroll years ago, it was incomplete and utilization was below standards. In conjunction with the complete re-implementation of the platform, the hospital also sought to understand how functionality could be improved and determine the impact to Kronos Time & Attendance.
A medical center had implemented Lawson Human Resources and Payroll approximately six years ago. However, the implementation was incomplete and utilization was below standard.
Incorporating industry best practices and best use of software methodology, recommendations were made to re-implement Lawson Human Resources and Kronos Time & Attendance.
A re-implementation of both platforms was completed and, to increase utilization, Surety’s consultant provided end-user training for all systems which resulted in employee and manager empowerment.
The University of Mississippi Medical Center had implemented Lawson Human Resources and Payroll approximately six years ago. However, the implementation was not complete and the utilization of functionality was below standards. In conjunction with the implementation of Lawson’s Financial and Materials Management suites, the center was seeking to understand how to improve the functionality of Lawson HR and Payroll—as well as what the impact to their Kronos Time and Attendance system would be.
Through a comprehensive process of interviews with stakeholders and an audit of Lawson and Kronos system configurations, a detailed assessment was performed by Surety Systems’ Lawson Global HR consultant. The assessment addressed the current state of affairs with the system configurations and the challenges that were currently faced in the business processes. Incorporating industry best practices and best use of software methodology, recommendations were made to re-implement Lawson Human Resources Suite and Kronos Time & Attendance in conjunction with the implementation of Lawson Financial and Materials Management Suites. It was also recommended to complete the rollout of Kronos to the entire organization.
The center accepted the consultant’s recommendations, a re-implementation of Lawson Human Resources and Kronos Time and Attendance was completed. The consultant designated Lawson HR as the system of record for all employee demographic data and developed interfaces to other systems to ensure the data was consistent and up to date. Lawson Benefits module was also implemented to fully automate benefits eligibility, deductions, and amounts.
On the Kronos Time and Attendance side, the consultant created one system for time capture and scheduling, absence tracking, and administering clocking rules.
Surety’s consultant also provided end-user training for all systems, resulting in employee and manager empowerment to perform updates.
