Kronos Selected as Cloud Workforce Management Vendor for Oakland County’s G2G Marketplace Initiative
CHELMSFORD, Mass., Jan. 19, 2015 - Kronos Incorporated has been selected as a workforce management vendor for the G2G Marketplace, a government-to-government initiative championed by Oakland County, Michigan. The county decided to offer solutions from government partners and approved vendors to government agencies through an online store experience, thereby providing governments with an easy way to research, purchase, and implement technology solutions at a reduced price.
- The shared services will be available for purchase on the G2G Marketplace, allowing public sector entities to more easily and knowledgeably make smart technology decisions. The G2G Marketplace provides pre-negotiated simplified agreements, fast procurement, reduced prices, and cost recovery. Ultimately, the initiative provides an efficient way for public sector technology buyers to research solutions and avoid lengthy Request for Proposal (RFP) processes while using taxpayer dollars wisely.
- With more than 2,000 public sector customers, Kronos offers automated time and attendance, absence management, scheduling, labor analytics, and HR and payroll solutions. Through automated and streamlined management of these processes, Kronos helps organizations control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and improve workforce productivity.
- When these workforce management solutions are deployed in the Kronos Cloud, organizations achieve faster return on investment through expedited implementations as well as utilize Kronos expertise for technology management and upgrades. Cloud deployments also give organizations access to the latest Kronos offerings at all times, and which permits government purchasers to free up their IT resources for other priorities.
- Kronos' focus on ease of use supports the overall objective of G2G Marketplace, which is the sharing of superior, proven technology to allow the entire public sector industry to benefit from best practices and ultimately lower the total cost of technology for everyone involved.
Phil Bertolini, chief information officer, Oakland County

Rock Regan, director, public sector practice group, Kronos
"It is an honor to be part of such a transformative, collaborative initiative such as the one Oakland County is spearheading. The G2G Marketplace is demonstrating the added value of technology when the headache associated with technology purchase, maintenance, and ownership is reduced. This way, technology providers can be effective enablers to public sector entities - helping them do what they do best - which is serve their communities."
