Kronos CEO Declares New Era in Innovation at Work
Nov. 13, 2012 05:01 PM
Yesterday during his keynote address to thousands of attendees at
KronosWorks, the world’s largest workforce information exchange, Aron
Ain, chief executive of Kronos
Incorporated declared a new era in innovation at work whereby
organizations are empowered to manage in the moment.
During the keynote, Ain discussed how the Kronos Navigator™
reinvented the way organizations manage their workforces. The
intuitive user experience of Navigator combines rich functionality
with unprecedented ease of use, leveraging the look and feel of
Ain went on to discuss how the same way consumer software has changed
the way we think about business software, mobile technology such as
Mobile™ has changed the way we interact with one
another. People are now instantly connected and constantly
communicating through mobile phones. Mobile technology has opened
endless possibilities for the world of workforce management.
Ain then discussed how Kronos’ new InTouch™
time clock is redefining the way millions of employees interact with
their Kronos system. The graphical user interface is a breeze – users
simply pick an icon and the system prompts them through steps. The
clock is incredibly easy to own because it’s designed for the cloud.
It’s a time clock built for today’s modern workforce.
Continuing to showcase recent new products and how they are enabling
organizations to manage in the moment, Ain introduced Kronos Workforce
Tablet™ with analytics, an easy-to-use tablet app that
delivers real-time, location-specific information to frontline
managers. The native-built tablet solution provides an anytime,
anyplace, instant connection to the Kronos suite of applications,
providing the convenience and capabilities of a workforce management
mobile application with the processing power, large-screen real
estate, and usability of an iPad.
Ain concluded his keynote by discussing the Kronos
Cloud, the fastest-growing part of the company’s business. More
than 6,000 customers are running in the Kronos Cloud today – small and
midsize businesses as well as some of the world’s largest employers.
Rather than spending valuable cycles maintaining the Kronos
application – installing service packs, going through upgrade cycles –
Kronos does it for customers, freeing their resources to focus on
Aron Ain, chief executive officer, Kronos
fulfilling the innovation vision that we established three years ago.
As a result, we’ve entered a new era in innovation at work. Many
companies express a vision for the future, but expression is the easy
part. Delivering on that vision is always the challenge. Delivering it
means not only producing tangible products that pay off on the promise
of added functionality with more intuitive, consumer-friendly
usability … but also with products that pay off the promise of being
stable, reliable, and dependable. That is what customers are getting
with the next generation of Kronos products.”
This announcement was made from KronosWorks, the world’s largest
workforce information exchange. KronosWorks is taking place this week
in Las Vegas.
