Due to the lack of alternatives, it is unlikely that there would be a switch out of Kronos Workforce Ready. The product is sufficient for what it is, and it has enormous possibility considering the freedom to create and build within the auspices of the product, however there is a horrible breakdown between Engineering and Front Line Staff that will make those Users who are impatient or unaware of the deeper issues within Kronos' operations extremely frustrated.

We're only a year into our contract but it has been a good change for our organization. If Kronos keeps in front of the competitors and offers a bigger and better product I believe we will continue with Kronos.

This is an easy to use product with minimal issues. We are able to use it for our day to day needs as well as long term needs. It is a great tool and it helps a lot of people in our organization do what they need to. I would recommend.

After having used the system for only a short time I already am very pleased with the ease of use and
with the support there when I need it. It is also something we as a Health Care Provider need according
to ALL the new rules and regulations.

Kronos Workforce Ready - Arguably the Worst Application You Could Choose

We have begun looking for other vendors to supply this products need as Kronos WFR cannot deliver the suite of applications which it should with this product.
*6/5/17 Edit - We started the new year with a new application. WFR proved to be unable to correct the errors within the application. We are much happier with the new application as we can use it effectively.
