Kronos Incorporated today announced that Comprehensive Pharmacy Services (CPS), a leading provider of pharmacy solutions to more than 600 hospitals and healthcare facilities selected the Kronos Workforce Central suite of workforce management solutions deployed in the Kronos Cloud. Servicing clients across the country and managing continued growth, CPS will standardize processes and improve compliance and efficiencies across the organization with Kronos.

News Facts

  • With more than 2,000 employees comprised of primarily pharmacists and pharmacy technicians with strict standards and requirements, CPS needed a standardized solution to replace disparate systems and paper-based processes. CPS purchased the Kronos time and attendance and employee scheduling applications to fully automate and streamline processes and support growth. With a growth strategy that includes acquisitions of other companies, CPS needed an efficient solution that is able to onboard several hundred employees at a time.
  • Also, with the Kronos scheduling solution, CPS can now better align schedules in accordance with clients' fluctuating staffing demands to maximize productivity and also increase compliance with pharmaceutical industry-mandated regulations by tracking employee licenses, skills, and certifications and sending alerts that identify expirations.
  • Additionally with Kronos, CPS will minimize compliance risk with federal labor laws and regulations including the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), as well as complex state-specific labor regulations including Massachusetts and California sick-leave laws.
  • With many CPS employees working across several facilities, Kronos will also help the organization track multiple jobs with different pay codes to ensure that employees are paid accurately and on time, increasing employee engagement.
  • By deploying in the Kronos Cloud, CPS now relies on Kronos to perform all configuration, maintenance, upgrades, and support of the workforce management solution, freeing up its IT department to focus resources on other initiatives.
