Kronos - Could Be Better. Could Be Worse.

I am personally not a huge fan of Kronos Workforce Central. It crashes on me too often, and it runs slowly. It is not a quick program to use at all. Once it actually starts working, it is simple to use, but it is not one that you can use if you need information promptly.

Now that the system is installed and operational, the "pain is gone"...therefore we see no reason to change to a different application. There is no functionality that is missing from the system that would drive us to consider another solution at this time. Maintenance support from Kronos is sufficient and updates occur regularly.

- Self-service. Workforce Central provides self-service capabilities that present a central entry point for employees to handle all facets of their HR administration.
- Workforce Central can be housed on a corporate intranet and configured with user access definitions that determine read/write permissions based on job position. Managers can have a consolidated view of employee data, including salary and performance review history and vacation accruals. Employees can access all benefit information and training options, and they
can initiate any necessary changes to their personal information.
- Data collection. Integration with employee identification and check point devices such as badges, biometric devices, and PDAs enable time and attendance data to be captured in the most appropriate method for the worker. Automated data collection helps eliminate transcription errors inherent in manual timesheet processes.
- Analytics. Workforce Central has static and end-user driven reporting that can be used to build intelligence on an organization’s workforce and associated
costs. Accessing real-time data from Workforce Central improves the decisionmaking process.

Kronos Workforce Central at a large research University

Once an enterprise system is purchased, configured, deployed, and accepted at a University, changing or replacing that system becomes very difficult. The sunk costs of training supervisors and employees and creating a support model become a road block for future changes. Kronos Workforce Central does its job at the University and will be the time collection system of record for the foreseeable future.
