Incorporated today unveiled Workforce
Tablet™, a sleek, easy-to-use tablet app that delivers real-time,
location-specific workforce information to frontline managers so they
can more effectively manage in the moment.
Workforce Tablet is a native-built tablet solution developed
specifically for the Apple iPad, providing an anytime, anyplace,
instant connection to the Kronos Workforce Central® suite.
Workforce Tablet provides all of the convenience and capabilities of a
workforce management mobile application with the processing power,
large-screen real estate, and usability of an iPad. The simple, clean,
compelling tablet user experience requires virtually no user training.
Key features include:
Analytics – With industry-specific and cross-vertical
out-of-the-box dashboards, KPIs, and drill-down reports for
executives and managers at multiple levels, analytics for tablet
helps guide decision making by recommending adjustments in the
moment to maintain productivity, quality, and service levels.
GeoSensing – Allows managers who are responsible for
multiple departments or geographic areas to identify their
specific location so all relevant employee, schedule, and job
information is available in their desired location. With
GeoSensing, the most relevant labor information is always front
and center, eliminating the time-consuming process of scrolling
and searching through long lists of employees and data.
Scheduling – Managers can create open shifts, add and
delete pay codes, and reassign shifts to other employees using
call list functionality. Shifts can be edited and easily dragged
and dropped to make schedule adjustments on the fly. Managers can
even view reports on the spot to see how overtime is directly
affecting their operation.
Staffing – Provides a visual indication of
under/overstaffing for all departments. Managers can view how
their staffing levels match up to demand, and drag and drop
employees with appropriate skill sets to meet demand. Staffing for
previous days can be accessed to analyze trends when assessing
future staffing needs.
Time Card Approvals – Managers can approve time cards and
view maps to see where mobile employees conduct time punches.
One-tap editing of timecard exceptions such as missed, late, and
early time punches accelerates the completion of daily tasks,
while real-time updates to all backend workforce management
information happen automatically.
Kronos Workforce Tablet is available in the Apple App Store.
The Kronos Tablet application is available immediately in English,
Spanish, French, Dutch, and simplified and traditional Chinese.
Bill Bartow, vice president, global product management, Kronos “Tablet
devices are brilliant. With the portability of a smartphone and screen
real estate that often exceeds a laptop or desktop, they offer the
best of both worlds and are revolutionizing the way businesses are
run. By providing managers with tablet access to their workforce
management solution anywhere at any time, we enable them to
effectively manage in the moment using common swipe, scroll, pinch,
and tap gestures. Workforce Tablet takes mobile workforce management
to the next level.”
Mark Smith, CEO and chief research officer, Ventana Research “The
use of the tablet is changing the way business operates and our Next
Generation Workforce Management benchmark research already finds that
28 percent of organizations have them and 34 percent more will deploy
them for the first time in 2013. The introduction of Kronos Tablet
provides managers with the applications and analytics to be more
productive and also align to the critical goals and initiatives of
their organization. The simplicity and usability of Kronos Tablet is
excellent. Organizations should examine this new offering and how
