KronosWorks is one of the most important conferences The WFC Group attends. We look forward to it every year, as it brings our team members together and allows us to connect one-on-one with Kronos customers.

At KronosWorks 2015 we ran a contest for one lucky company to receive a free upgrade to Kronos Workforce Central 8, including all the support and training they needed to implement the upgrade with success!Receiving more than 300 entries, we were thrilled to announce Gulf Coast Pre-Stress as our winner. Gulf Coast Pre-Stress was happy to take advantage of this opportunity to upgrade, on us.

As part of the prize, we worked with Gulf Coast Pre-Stress to develop a customized plan for implementation and integration, ensuring they saw increased efficiency as they upgraded to Kronos Workforce Central 8. Every company has different needs, different systems and different goals. We worked with their teams to create an effective strategy.

Established in 1967, Gulf Coast Pre-Stress develops and creates precast/pre-stressed concrete products. Their departments range from production and engineers to shipping and customer service. It was critical that their workforce management software support such a variety of teams and allow for clear communication.

“We were thrilled to win the free upgrade, but even more happy with the support and training The WFC Group provided our teams throughout and after the upgrade,” said Beau Bates, CIO of Gulf Coast Pre-Stress. “They walked with us through the whole process, ensuring a seamless and successful transition.”

Our complimentary upgrade included the following:

  • An upgrade to Kronos Workforce Central 8, including installation and configuration on Cloud environments in the production and test departments
  • An upgrade of existing WIM interfaces and deployment to the new environments.
  • Two weeks of UAT support, including daily touch points.
  • Training
  • Project management in order to keep the project on-task and on-time.
  • One week of post go-live support

Congratulations again to Gulf Coast Pre-Stress – The WFC Group was happy to hear you were thrilled with the end result of our work! Is your company looking to upgrade? Contact us today to see how we can help.
