Kronos Workforce Central suite achieves SAP certification

Kronos Incorporated today announced that version 6.1 of its Workforce Central suite has been certified by SAP. Through the integration provided by Workforce Central with the SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM) solutions, Kronos is making it easier for organisations to benefit from its completely automated time and attendance solution.

News Facts
The certification means that Kronos time and attendance customers who use SAP ERP HCM for HR now have a compelling new option for integrating data from the Kronos time and attendance solution with SAP solutions.

The new interface is packaged as a template that can be leveraged by Workforce Integration Manager™ (WIM), a Kronos integration tool that makes it easier for organisations to integrate Kronos applications with existing ERP, payroll, and human resources systems.

WIM leverages the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform and integrates directly with the SAP ERP application, is 100-percent web compatible, and supports both batch and real-time interfaces between Kronos and other applications.

As a result of this certified interface, implementation time and effort is reduced and customers benefit from a pre-tested and pre-packaged integration offering.
Changes to either SAP or Kronos data structures are supported through updates to the interface template itself.

Many of the world’s leading organisations, across industries such as healthcare, government, education, and manufacturing, use Kronos time and attendance solutions to extend the value of their ERP investments. For example, a large manufacturer achieved $500,000 in annual savings with a single change of standardising rounding policies for time-clock punches company-wide. In another case, a global pharmaceutical company achieved 100-percent accuracy in paychecks for its 28,000 employees worldwide through the use of Workforce Central integrated with the HR and payroll capabilities of SAP ERP HCM.

A study conducted by Nucleus Research found that customers use Kronos solutions to further extend the value of their original investments in SAP solutions. Customers using Kronos solutions and SAP applications have cited lower software costs, enhanced data acquisition, and less customisation.
