Read on to learn more about the Kronos Time solution and how it can optimize your time management initiatives.

What is a Kronos Time Clock?

Kronos Time Clock is an advanced time-tracking system that allows users to clock in and out for shifts, manage attendance and time, process payroll, and schedule shifts with one simple, easy to use interface. UKG offers a comprehensive time management system with an easy-to-use interface that makes it more convenient for employees to log and track time whether they’re in the office or on-the-go.

Key Time Tracking Features

Here are a few of the main time tracking capabilities Kronos Time Clock offers:

Employee Database

The Kronos Time Clock provides a built-in database that manages and stores valuable employee data, like emergency and personal contact information, to be available whenever and wherever they need it.


This feature gives employees and managers the functionality to run and store reports to ensure the system and its people are running efficiently and effectively. Reports are used to keep track of valuable data and analytics, such as attendance, shifts, and amount of work time.

Automatic Time Capture

This tool saves employees valuable time by eliminating the need for manual time tracking processes. It allows employees to enter and track their time accurately without manual input for every shift.

Support for Multi-User Systems

Multi-user support in Kronos Time Clock allows organizations to add multiple users, including employees, managers, and administrators, to the system.

This way, companies with employees of different levels and locations can keep all information in a single place, making it easier to keep track of time data and manage the system remotely.

Overtime Calculation

Maintaining compliance with labor and overtime laws is important in any business, regardless of size, industry, or location.

Kronos Time Clock offers an overtime calculation feature that makes tracking amount of time worked and calculating overtime easier and ensures that businesses comply with labor regulations.

Billing and Invoicing

The Kronos Time Clock not only keeps track of billable and non-billable hours, but it also generates invoices for employees based on the amount of time worked during a given period.

Bill and invoice generation is a crucial feature that helps companies manage money more effectively and run payroll more accurately for their employees.

3 Main Advantages for Your Company

  • Enhanced Productivity: More accurate timekeeping helps identify and manage workforce inefficiencies and absences to maintain and improve worker productivity.
  • Convenient Access: Whether through Kronos Workforce Central, the Kronos mobile app, or a physical time clock in the office, UKG makes clocking in and out more convenient.

How To Access Your Kronos Time Clock System

Here are the three main ways to access Kronos Time Clock:

Kronos Mobile App

In today’s world, more and more people and businesses are following a hybrid or remote work approach, so a timekeeping technology that can keep up with that business change and still maintain accuracy and efficiency is needed.

Fortunately, the Kronos mobile app makes it easy for employees to clock in and out, check their schedules, and even manage time requests from anywhere. In a different office location, at home, or on-the-go, Kronos Mobile simplifies time tracking for your workforce.

Kronos InTouch

  • TouchFree ID: UKG’s TouchFree ID dual-camera technology allows employees to check in without ever needing to touch the screen. The software recognizes each employee and remembers their key features, eliminating the need for employees to reintroduce themselves or manually enter their information into the system before each shift.
  • Personalized Features: With advanced UKG Dimensions software, users are given the opportunity to personalize their home screens, making it easier for them to access and manage self-service transactions within the system. This way, employees have access to time-off requests, shifts, accruals, and more and can organize it in a way that best suits their needs.
  • Intelligent Software: With customized interfaces and software that combines related actions to predict the next task for users, customers are able to improve the productivity and effectiveness of their time tracking processes. This UKG Dimensions feature enables users to log time, navigate schedules, request time-off, and view timecards from a single screen, enhancing the employee experience and making it easier to track time details.

Web-Based Portal

Kronos Workforce Central has been the most widely used Kronos time clock in the past. The web-based application gives organizations the ability to manage and track time and attendance information through a single solution.

This way, regardless of what office or location an employee works in, their time and pay information is available throughout the system, keeping all employee data organized and stored in the same place.
