Now We Have Kronos Timekeeper, It's Payroll Time! Part I

Dwain Lambrigger — Jan 2012

You are a payroll manager who has recently learned that the parent company is requiring you to use Kronos Workforce Timekeeper. They have been on the system for years, however, they are now requiring all of the satellite businesses to implement it as well. I can’t get into the detail, but I will review the basic steps required. As an overreaching policy for all of these steps, make sure you are as accurate as possible, and that you completely finish one step before starting another. In this first of two entries, we start to understand how Workforce Timekeeper fits into your payroll process.

Kronos Payroll, a Boeing 737, and Big Picture training

Bryan deSilva — Jan 2012

Air Traffic Control to the Payroll Office … We have an employee questioning why the health care deduction changed on their last pay check … Beware of turbulence …

Being a technical guy (ok, ok, I.T.) partnering with Payroll departments for 25 years, I’ve come to the belief that payroll processing and commercial airline piloting are really very, very similar disciplines. You Payroll folks know the routine – get 99.9% of the checks correct this year, and all you’ll hear about is the .1% that were incorrect. Meet our airline counter-parts – 100% safe landings should be more of a “requirement” than a “goal”, right?

Kronos Workforce Central New Timecard Features

Raymond Ney — Jan 2012

We are continuing with the New Feature Series for Workforce Central (WFC). Several key improvements made in the newest version of WFC are in the timecard. Kronos evolves the timecard in every new version of WFC. Some of the changes are small, and others more significant. Gaining perspective from another industry, I think about how watching television has evolved and advanced over time. There are some similarities to the evolution of both the WFC Timecard and TV. Both allow you to do more, are easier to use, and save time.

Update your Kronos Time Clock

Bryan deSilva — Jan 2012

I’m sorry. Did anyone else have to check their calendars at the release of Kronos’s InTouch touch screen time clock? For a second I though it might have been 10 years ago. Are we really supposed to consider a 7” touchscreen with a 3 color LED that costs $2,200 to be innovative? This on the eve of Apple releasing its third iPad?!? And $600 for a fingerprint reader? I paid $450 for my last fingerprint reader and it came with a laptop, a webcam, and 15” screen wrapped around it.

Kronos Workforce Central New Feature: Device Manager

Raymond Ney — Jan 2012

Similar to Workforce Integration Manager (WIM) being integrated with Workforce Central (WFC), this article focuses on another new product in Workforce Central version 6.1 and above: Workforce Device Manager (WDM). In keeping with the “New Feature” theme when upgrading, I chose the image of a movie theater to represent the Kronos InTouch devices. Why? Similar to what moviegoers see on the screen, you determine what is visible at the device based on what you select in WDM (your Kronos projector). Upgrading to WDM can represent a new configuration or can represent a sequel (upgrading the current DCM configuration).
