Kronos Support: How long will my Kronos WFC Version be supported?

Jul 15, 2016 8:13:34 AM

As Kronos continues to revolutionize their Workforce Central application, newer versions are starting to be released more frequently. The long awaited, completely Java-free WFC 8.0.11 was released just last week. Organizations are being forced to consider upgrading as the new upgrades put older versions in risk of “Sunsetting.”

The longer the upgrade is delayed, the more the potential grows for complications from workarounds associated with supporting outdated versions.
