Kronos Workforce Central Version 8.0 is the ultimate Workforce Management tool, allowing organizations to create and execute strategies that maintain and nurture a healthy and engaged workforce. Combining the best of both worlds, WFM software can help foster an environment that allows employees to feel both valued and inspired.

Workforce Management is upgrading to the Cloud.
