What's WIM got to do with it? (a.k.a. Kronos Connect)

Raymond Ney — Jul 12

What is integration? Why the constant desire to integrate Kronos data with other vendors?

I was wondering about this "new" Kronos integration. Do what? You mean I can see my employee data in more than one system?! It has been so long since I talked about integration a.k.a. interfacing, I almost had to wiki "API"! Integration is not always easy, but some things can be.

making the right calls when it comes to interface design

How many times have you heard from your DBA that your Kronos interfaces are too complex and that any changes would have to be performed by Kronos? How many times have you sent your most promising resource to a Kronos Connect class only to find they continue to struggle with Connect interfaces? If you are like many Kronos customers your answer is one of frustration and seemingly without a solution.
