The workforce management solutions firm Kronos has launched its Workforce Dimensions cloud solution in India. The Workforce Dimensions offers managers with real-time workforce data. The solution incorporates a fully responsive UI, Workforce Dimensions provides the same engaging user experience across devices – allowing employees and managers control over how they want to consume information. Users are enabled with one-click actions which make common workflows simple, including submitting and approving time-off requests, timecard approvals, shift-swaps and more. Collaborative Self-scheduling empowers employees to express where, when, and how much they want to work thereby driving employee engagement to a whole new level.
Advanced forecasting powered with AI and machine learning improves volume forecast accuracy by as much as 25 percent, resulting in higher quality schedules, said the company. Built on the Kronos D5 platform, Workforce Dimensions has cloud architecture designed from the ground up to handle the massive real-time computational challenges of processing global enterprise workforce management data.
The Kronos D5 platform features an open Application Program Interface (API) platform for easy integrations and extensions; a foundational artificial intelligence engine which enables predictive and intelligent solutions; lightning fast in-memory computing with the ability to process large volumes of data in seconds; a domain model with flexible and adaptable rules that manage suite interactions; and a unified information architecture that eliminates the need for data warehousing and simplifies access to analytics for all users.
Kronos has leveraged partnerships with technology providers such as Google and Microsoft to use the Kronos D5 platform to develop product extensions to Workforce Dimensions. Workforce Dimensions will integrate with Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Teams to simplify daily tasks. Outlook integration makes it quick and easy for managers to respond to employee requests directly via actionable email messages and the Teams chat bot integration will support voice requests, allowing users to access work information, such as their schedule, simply by speaking.
The Kronos D5 platform powers Workforce Dimensions using Google Cloud Platform, leveraging Google Cloud’s substantial investments in global infrastructure, security, and ongoing innovation. Google Calendar integration allows users to download and share work schedules, while integration with Google Sheets makes it simple to export and share reports with colleagues.
Kronos is also working collaboratively with leading global human capital management providers Oracle, SAP, and others on pre-built connectors to their applications. These connectors will give organizations access to existing integrations to shorten implementation cycles and move data seamlessly between the applications. Kronos worked with global customers across sectors to re-imagine what could be done in a next generation workforce management solution, as a part of the early adopter program. Some Workforce Dimensions early adopters who are currently implementing the product include BorgWarner Inc., GATE Petroleum Company, London Energy, Things Remembered, Tru Blu Beverages, and University of Colorado Boulder.
Neil J. Solomon, VP-LATAM APAC, Kronos Incorporated said, “Workforce management has undergone a great degree of change, with technology remaining at the heart of this disruption. While technology is crucial in mapping productivity, efficiency and costs, the aggregated data can be leveraged to map workforce metrics. Workforce Dimensions caters to the growing need for analytics which empowers the employer with relevant real time information which further helps in decision making. This unburdens supervisors from administrative tasks and enables them to leverage workforce data to influence business outcomes and allows employees to take control of their work-life balance. Workforce Dimensions has been adopted by a half a million organizations globally, in the first two quarters and we are confident that organizations in India will also see value in equipping themselves with such cutting-edge technology.”
