When to use Kronos Workforce Record Manager

Bryan deSilva — Oct 2009

Under the best scenario, you might start using Workforce Record Manager (WRM) right away to copy locked payroll data to the archive database. And each time payroll is processed another pay period would be copied to the archive. No data is removed from the production database until much later on. The goal is to keep Kronos Workforce Central product data your users are likely to need to access within the production database. User access to the archive database should be limited and infrequent.

Chris Flanders — Oct 2009

As a review, let's briefly recall where our Quest has taken us so far. Remember that our Grail is WFM (workforce management) system harmony for healthcare organizations.

Harmony with the Kronos Workforce Central Suite

Chris Flanders — Oct 2009

When you think of the word "harmony", what comes to your mind? Maybe a peaceful nature scene or an orchestra performing a symphony... Or maybe some synonyms float up from your subconscious: peace, balance, accord, synchronicity. Odds are, the one thing you did NOT think of was a collection of software applications.
