“Alignment with our business is critical to our success. We utilize an IT-as-a-service organizational model to align our services with the business functions, needs, goals, and objectives of Kronos. This allows us to deliver iteratively and be agile enough to quickly shift focus. We are able to maintain a high-touch service model with our customers and stay ahead of the technology needs of the company.”
