My name is Travis Burgan, one of The WFC Group’s Kronos Workforce Ready experts. I’ve worked with the platform since it was first developed, and I’m excited to be guest blogging today about the advantages of the platform for larger businesses!


Although it was designed around the needs of small and medium-sized businesses, Kronos Workforce Ready can be as equally helpful to larger companies that are hesitant about an enterprise solution.

In my experience, sometimes large rollouts of Time & Labor Management (TLM) solutions face logistical hurdles that prevent certain employee populations from participating. In these situations, Kronos Workforce Ready can be an unexpected solution for companies that wouldn't normally be considered a good candidate.

Centered Around Small Employee Populations

Sometimes the size of a workforce is too small to justify the internal costs associated with transitioning them onto a new main TLM platform. This is why there are efficiencies built into Kronos Workforce Ready that help keep implementation and adoption costs realistic for smaller employee populations.

  2. 100% Remote Implementations: The cloud-based nature of Kronos Workforce Ready means your platform can be set up without assistance from your IT department setting up remote connections or having to send someone on-site
