Kronos Incorporated today announced the formation of a new cloud collaboration relationship with Oracle that will help to reshape the global human capital management (HCM) market.

News Facts

  • Global organizations with complex workforce needs can benefit from the creation of a new integration between the Kronos Workforce Central suite, the leading global workforce management solution in the cloud, and Oracle’s HCM core human resources (HR) and payroll capabilities.
  • The integration will provide a simplified deployment and quicker time to value through deeper functionality across all HCM and workforce management functions and a more engaging user experience.

Workforce data is then synchronized with Oracle HCM to process payroll.
  • Combined, Kronos and Oracle have tens of thousands of workforce management and HCM cloud customers around the world. The organizations are exploring future integration and development opportunities that will benefit both their existing mutual install base and prospective organizations considering both Kronos and Oracle.
