Bryan deSilva — Nov 2014

In the last post we talked about the main two Kronos upgrade options discussed at Kronosworks last week. There are good reasons to upgrade now and good reasons to wait for Kronos v8. Now I'd like to suggest that in many organizations the safest and most successful path to upgrade is...

Kronos 8: Wait or Upgrade Now?

I cannot tell you how many times I was asked this question. In our booth, in the halls, at breakfast, everywhere! It seems that organizations are eager to be free of Java but aren't sure if they should wait that long to upgrade. Common themes were:

Kronos Testing - Who Needs Testing Anyway?

Dwain Lambrigger — Aug 2014

So why do we test a Workforce Timekeeper configuration? 

Well, why do they test medical students before they become doctors?  Why do law students have to pass the bar?  Why are PhD students required to complete a dissertation?

Kronos Implementation Best Practices?

A Fantastic Kronos Interview Question

A prospective client, with whom we recently interviewed, asked us a direct but rather broad question. “How are you with implementing Kronos ‘Best Practices’? This is a fantastic question within a question if you think about it. Just as one could debate what practices in Workforce Management (WFM) have truly been shown to be best, how does one measure the implementation side of the equation? Would best practices that were partially implemented and adopted be better than merely good ones that were seamlessly rolled out and embraced?
