  • Contractor Cost Tracking that enables management to view, analyze, and adjust the cost and number of contract resources working on a program, project, or at a facility. To best manage a budget, the total cost of the workforce must be understood. With a Kronos for Federal solution you can count the number of contractors, account for what they are doing, and tie them to the proper budget line item. With this data in hand, management can plan for the future, be better able to renegotiate contracts, and ensure they are meeting their objectives and still remain within budget.
  • Workforce Management: A Key Challenge in Corrections

    Sweeping layoffs, budget reductions, and unprecedented economic challenges are driving corrections leaders to find new ways to save money and to better manage resources while operating safe facilities for staff and inmates. Technology can assist in many areas of corrections — cell phone detection, incident pin mapping, biometric readers to ensure staff rounds are being met and radio frequency identification technology to track inmate movements to name a few. However, historically corrections has been slow to adapt to innovative technology — and employee workforce management is no exception. For most organizations, labor represents the most significant, but yet controllable, expense. There is great opportunity to reduce some of these costs by focusing on workforce management.
