Kronos has come up with new mobile applications that improve productivity by making it easier for managers and employees to complete a wide range of workforce related tasks using a variety of mobile devices. The applications give employees and managers flexibility in how they interact with each other and provide an anytime, anyplace, instant connection to the Kronos Workforce Central suite. Kronos Workforce Mobile Manager allows managers to use their mobile devices to monitor operations, to resolve exceptions, and to respond quickly to employee requests, such as approving timecards and granting time-off requests. The company’s Workforce Mobile Employee enables employees to track their work in real time, leading to the automatic creation of timely and accurate timesheets. Employees can quickly and easily review information such as schedules and timecards. They can request time off and, if appropriate, punch-in and out from remote work locations. Kronos mobile applications are delivered as native applications for the Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, and iPad tablet. A Java-based option is also available which runs on a wide range of mobile devices like Nokia. James Thomas, country manager, Kronos India operations, said, “With India being the fastest-growing mobile subscriber markets, this is a path-breaking announcement by Kronos into the Indian market to transform the way organizations will engage their workforce in instant engagement and guided decision making for workforce effectiveness and productivity.” “Today’s workforce enthusiastically embraces cellular phones, smart phones, and tablets for everyday activities. Workforce Mobile adds workforce management applications to the essential toolkit of a well-equipped modern workforce,” added Peter George, chief technology officer, Kronos. Kronos Workforce Mobile Manager and Workforce Mobile Employee applications are available in English, Spanish, French, and Dutch.
