Kronos Workforce Central New Feature: Integration Manager

Raymond Ney — Dec 2011

Continuing with the series on New Features with Workforce Central (WFC) version 6.1 and later, I’d like to talk about one of my favorite products: Workforce Integration Manager (typically referred to as WIM). What is Workforce Integration Manager? For those upgrading, WIM and the WIM Interface Designer are the two components that now replaces the older product known as Connect. For those familiar with Workforce Timekeeper, remember the Custom URLs feature? It's similar, but much more than that. Continue reading to find out more!

Kronos Training For the Rest of Us - Part 1 - Introduction

Dwain Lambrigger — Dec 2011

I was passing e-mail messages with a colleague this week when she asked a question that I thought would be valuable. "How do you go about training people that are technically savy?" (I am paraphrasing the question here). After thinking about it, I realized that this is a huge issue. One that a lot of HR Managers and Corporate Trainers deal with every day.

Sure, they have a computer at home, to send an e mail or surf the web, but that's it. They have cell phones, not the 5G itele cool 8 mega pixel smart phone, just a phone. They make call and sent the occasional text, but that's it. These people are out there; in fact, it is safe to say they are a silent majority of workers not only in America, but around the world.

Kronos Workforce Central New Feature Introduction

Raymond Ney — Dec 2011

So apparently we have a new Workforce Central version coming soon (“to a theater near you”!). Kronos Workforce Central Suite version (WFC) 6.3 is slated for release in December. In addition, Kronos is also releasing new hardware. So what is in store with the latest version of the Kronos software? More importantly: What’s in it for us? Over the next few entries I would like to invite you along as I detail some of the available new features that you receive with the new WFC version. After the careful review of the new features, we can take a stab at this question: Will the Kronos WFC “sequel” be a better user experience or just more special effects? I myself will side with the former vs. the latter.
