Kronos Helps Organizations Manage the Workforce in More Than 100 Countries
CHELMSFORD, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Incorporated today announced that its workforce management solutions
are now used in more than 100 countries around the world.
Kronos (News - Alert) is the only workforce management provider to offer truly global
coverage for its customers.
While Kronos solutions are used by many locally owned businesses
around the world, multinational organizations face the most complexity
in managing a global workforce. Variations in work rules, languages,
and currencies force many multinational organizations to deploy
systems from multiple vendors or rely on expensive, error-prone custom
coding to meet their business requirements. Not only are these systems
expensive to maintain, they also fail to provide a comprehensive view
of an organization's labor costs on a global basis. With Kronos,
organizations have a one-vendor solution where a consistent standard
global product is deployed around the world.
Kronos multinational customers include organizations such as: ARAMARK,
a global leader in providing award-winning professional services; IKEA,
the world's leading home furnishings company; Kellogg Company,
the world's leading producer of cereal and a leading producer of
convenience foods; McDermott International, a leading global
engineering and construction company; Meritor, Inc., a leading
global supplier of drivetrain, mobility, braking, and aftermarket
solutions for commercial vehicle and industrial markets; NESTLÉ,
the world's foremost nutrition, health, and wellness company; and Sabre (News - Alert)
Holdings, a global leader in travel technology; as well as many of
the world's leading companies in the pharmaceutical, computer
technology, fast-food restaurant, retail, medical technology, athletic
footwear and apparel, automotive, semiconductor, and machinery
industries. In fact, more than half of the Fortune 1000 companies use
Kronos solutions are used by organizations in countries such as:

India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Korea, Malaysia,
Mexico, Micronesia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Poland, Saudi Arabia,
Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United
Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Venezuela, Zimabwe, and
more than 60 other countries.
In the past year, Kronos has aggressively expanded its international
Acquired UK-based SMART Computer Holdings and its Spanish
affiliate SMART Human Logistics, strengthening its presence in the
Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region.
Established reseller agreements in Brazil, the Middle East,
Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Turkey.
Established additional Greater China offices in Guangzhou and Hong
Kong, and formed relationships with Accenture (News - Alert), BeyondSoft, NetAGE,
and Satyam to provide more complete distribution and
implementation support across Greater China.
CEO Aron Ain accompanied Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick on a
trade mission to Brazil to foster stronger business ties between
the state and country.
These developments underscore Kronos' commitment to supporting the
global workforce management needs of locally owned businesses and
multinational organizations. Kronos also continues to hire worldwide
staff to support existing customers and new customer deployments.
Aron Ain, chief executive officer, Kronos
"Work and pay
rules around the world are incredibly complex. There isn't a cheat
sheet for how to pay your employees properly in every region; you need
to be on the ground to understand the local laws and customs that
govern how employees are paid. Kronos has made significant investments
to develop, deliver, and maintain a workforce management solution that
meets the global requirements of local and multinational
organizations. No other workforce management vendor matches our global

"For organizations looking to grow globally, having a
workforce management solution that can grow with them and take them
into new regions is critical. Work and pay rules around the world
differ markedly and organizations expose themselves to great risk if
they don't have a tool to mange this complexity. Kronos is a truly
global provider that can meet the needs of growing organizations
around the world."
