Kronos Timekeeper and the DCAA continued

Jeff Millard — Sep 2010

During the implementation I mentioned yesterday, the ‘feature’ of Kronos that prevented an employee from changing a timecard entry after the fact was raised as an issue. It would apparently create a lot more work for the supervisor since only they had the ability to make corrections. “And these guys are gonna make a lot of mistakes” the supervisor said. Of course my first thought was ‘these guys’ make things that might explode —what exactly is your tolerance for mistakes here?

Best Practice, Kronos Workforce Central and the DCAA

Jeff Millard — Sep 2010

Years ago when SOX404 standards became mandatory for public companies it was a common statement from IT, Finance and other managers—“Shouldn’t we be doing most of this stuff anyway?”   Sure the cost of moving from where we were to a more transparent, 404 compliant infrastructures was initially high but

The Software Swamp

Bryan deSilva — Sep 2010

Last fall, I decided to take a walk to clear my head between battles with some software that was frustrating me. My walk took me through some public parkland and an adjacent golf course. Part of the golf course has been closed for a few years due to drainage problems caused by seepage from a deteriorating dam. The dam was rebuilt in the past year. The fairway grass looked much shorter than last year indicating that it had been mowed sometime this summer (last year it was a few feet tall in places), and recent months had been fairly dry so I decided to take a shortcut down one of the fairways. Well, it wasn't a shortcut. I ended up zigzagging my way down the fairway in search of the high spots as much of the fairway was boggy. Which is comparable to how I felt when I was getting frustrated by the software a few moments earlier.

Fistful of Talent Blog - Not Kronos, but good HR stuff!

Bryan deSilva — Sep 2010

A blog I often read is fistfuloftalent.com and I highly recommend it. The article I just read about Organizational Development and HRIS is quite good and I must say indirectly adds a nice touch to Jeff Millard's Implementation Strategy philosophy. I'm finding that the broad set of ideas that HR professionals have integrate well into our vision of reconciling the project to the organization. Keep reading these great sources and be part of the conversation.

The Kronos Transaction Assistant (cont)

Myron Oakes — Sep 2010

If you have ever weeped or gnashed your teeth over the Kronos Transaction Assistant, then perhaps we can assist with at least the weeping part (see your dentist about the gnashing). There are two Kronos database tables that contain all the information that you need to know about errors that are displayed on Transaction assistant. These tables are FAILEDXMLDATA and FAILEDXMLBODY. And here’s a query that will pull all person-level data out:

Kronos Transaction Assistant - The smartest dumb application

Myron Oakes — Sep 2010

I like Kronos Workforce Central/ADP eTime. I really do – it’s a good system (though not the only good one out there), and I have many satisfied Kronos customers who share my viewpoint. It can do most anything that’s needed, can interface to most anything that it needs to interface to, derives payroll information accurately, handles exceptions well, and generally meets the business needs of my customers.

Challenges in the Kronos Classroom - The Quiet Participant

Dwain Lambrigger — Sep 2010

I started training on Kronos products back in 1999. At that time, it was common to see companies moving from paper timecards to Kronos Workforce Central, or its single system cousin, Timekeeper Central. I remember those times well because of the type or learner I was training. A lot of these learners were petrified of technology. You have heard the stories before, the lady that thinks the mouse goes on the floor like the foot pedal to her sewing machine; the frustrated participant that asks the question "So where is the ANY key?" There are other great stories we can all tell, so feel free to share with me at dlambrigger@improvizations.com if you have any really good ones! I love to hear them.
