Phobio Joins Kronos Workforce Dimensions Technology Partner Program to Deliver Rodio, an AI-Powered Workforce Communication Tool, to Streamline Retail Management

Phobio, a leading provider of software and services that empower the retail industry, and Kronos (News - Alert), a leading provider of workforce management and human capital management cloud solutions, today announced Phobio's membership in the Workforce Dimensions Technology Partner Program.

Rodio, Phobio's workforce communication tool, provides the capability to deliver the right information, to the right employees, at the right time. The solution mimics an organization's structure, providing leaders with access to the frontlines and the frontline employees access to their peers. Leaders can instantly deliver bulletins to a subset of employees or the entire base and Rodio's powerful reporting tools provide immediate access to track the engagement rate of the bulletin.

The Workforce Dimensions Suite™ is a next generation workforce management solution from Kronos. Cloud native and built with a mobile-first responsive design ideally suited for frontline employees, Workforce Dimensions leverages artificial intelligence, machine learning, and real-time embedded analytics to engage employees, unburden managers, and deliver unprecedented levels of operational insights. Powered by the Kronos D5 platform, Workforce Dimensions makes it quick and simple for customers to extend the value of their Kronos investment with tightly integrated partner applications, such as Rodio, through its leading open API framework.

Rodio's integration with Workforce Dimensions will act as a central hub that connects the suite of products and provide a newly defined employee experience. The integration will streamline and automate communications, time management, performance, and payroll services to empower teams to take ownership and stay engaged with their work.

"Partnering with Kronos is an exciting step in our continued growth," said Stephen Wakeling, CEO and Co-Founder of Phobio. "Workforce Dimensions is aligned with the exact goals we had in mind when developing Rodio - providing an optimal and exceptional platform for managing businesses and staff in one easy-to-use software solution."

With Rodio's AI-powered bot technology, Rodiobot, combined with Workforce Dimensions, customers will have the ability to increase efficiency in the workplace, provide on-demand interactive knowedge bases for frequently asked questions, and automate a broad range of tasks; notably, those related to employee onboarding, training, time and attendance, new customer acquisition, and other business critical information. Employees will have a single user interface to communicate with any Workforce Dimensions product or enterprise system connected to Rodiobot. Answers are delivered to employees in milliseconds, not minutes or hours.

"Workforce Dimensions by Kronos represents an entirely new category of workforce management solution, a first-of-its-kind SaaS (News - Alert) platform designed to provide a new level of intelligence, engagement and productivity for an ever-changing workforce," said Bill Bartow, Vice President of Global Product Management, Kronos. "The platform is completely open and extensible making it possible for organizations such as Phobio to deliver innovative integrations that will not just create additional value for customers, but truly help shape the future of workplace technology."
