LOWELL, Mass.,

Kronos Incorporated today introduced an enhanced integration with longtime global cloud partner SAP SuccessFactors that will help further simplify complex and challenging global human capital management (HCM) requirements for multinational organizations.

News Facts

  • The enhanced integration, which is API-based, provides several integration options for importing demographic data from SAP® SuccessFactors® solutions to the Kronos Workforce Central suite. To date, businesses have relied on file-based integration to transfer data between the two applications. With the enhanced integration, organizations that deploy both SAP SuccessFactors solutions and Kronos Workforce Central can share employee information between applications, in near real-time, based on trigger events such as new hire, reassignment or other employee updates.
  • Working together, the software provides an end-to-end global HCM solution that offers a singular, synchronized global view into human resources, workforce management and payroll data.
  • Employee information flows from SAP SuccessFactors’ Employee Central to the Workforce Central suite, then to SAP SuccessFactors’ Employee Central Payroll, supporting constant and complete access to accurate employee data.
  • In addition to continual back-end data exchange, all functionality, features and content from Workforce Central can be accessed from within the interface to the SAP SuccessFactors solutions, providing a simplified user experience that harnesses the full power of Workforce Central.
  • With the enhanced integration of Kronos Workforce Central and SAP SuccessFactors solutions, employee information can be entered into the HCM system just once – from anywhere in the world – and be available globally within minutes. This approach helps companies eliminate the disparate systems often in use for HR, talent management, workforce management and payroll that vary by country, region, division and even office location, as well as duplicate data entry and redundant employee records.
  • Kronos and SAP SuccessFactors have worked together since 2013 and continue to collaborate on opportunities to benefit their sizeable mutual customer base.
