Tech hunger sees Kronos release workforce management solution

| February 18, 2015

Australia businesses are increasingly looking to technology innovations to help improve productivity and drive business growth, according to a recent study.

The study, commissioned by workforce management company and First 5000 member Kronos and undertaken by Aberdeen Group, has revealed that Australian businesses lag behind the rest of the working world in workforce utilisation and automated time and attendance.

Kronos said the key to the adoption of technologies, such as mobile communications and cloud computing, is to offer companies with 100 to 999 staff access to solutions that were previously only affordable to larger enterprises.

Kronos ANZ managing director Peter Harte said SMEs are one of the growth engines of the Australian economy.

“From our discussions with SMEs, we know they are stretched to deliver more with limited resources,” Mr Harte said.

In response to their need for a simple, cloud workforce management solution, Kronos has released Workforce Ready in Australia.

“The business environment is growing more complex for small and midsize organisations. There is pressure from employers to accommodate more flexibility and provide more mobile touch points, while, from a business perspective, they are under pressure to improve their workforce productivity.

“Kronos Workforce Ready provides SMEs with solutions that make workforce management simpler while empowering them with real-time data to make more informed decisions,” Mr Harte said.

The product is aimed at organisations with 100-999 employees and is designed to improve productivity and agility, providing benefits for both employers and employees.
