Kronos Incorporated today announced that ACCO Brands Corporation, a world leading manufacturer and supplier of branded school and office supplies, has standardized workforce management processes with Kronos Workforce Central solutions deployed in the Kronos Cloud.

News Facts

  • Following a major acquisition, ACCO Brands wanted to standardize its workforce management processes with a single provider. The majority of the organization was already a long-time user of the Kronos time and attendance solution prior to the acquisition. Based on benefits achieved, ACCO Brands selected Kronos to standardize processes across all departments for employees in the U.S. and Canada.
  • In addition, the organization extended the use of Kronos by adding the absence management solution to further reduce administrative burdens and compliance risks associated with unplanned absences. With multiple attendance policies across various plants, Kronos has helped ACCO Brands streamline absence-related policies that can reduce the costs of unplanned absences.
  • For further innovation in how it manages its workforce, ACCO Brands also selected mobile applications from Kronos, making it easier for managers to approve timecards and quickly respond to employee requests from anywhere, at any time.
  • ACCO Brands chose to deploy in the Kronos Cloud and now relies on Kronos to perform all configuration, maintenance, upgrades, and support of the workforce management solution. This has enabled the organization's IT resources to focus on other business priorities.
