  • Charles Gaskamp, project sponsor and manager, Blue Bell Creameries Inc.
    “The Kronos implementation team is easy to work with and stays on top of everything. There has not been one hiccup through the entire project. Kronos team members know their products very well and they understand our business and how we operate as well. This is the reason the implementation has gone so smoothly. Kronos has done an excellent job.”
  • Daniel Araujo, project sponsor and manager, Los Fresnos CISD
    “Kronos was one of the smoothest projects I have ever worked on. It was a very big project and went remarkably well. There were no problems with the upgrade, during testing or with the implementation. We evaluated other systems before this upgrade and felt Kronos was the best for our needs and we were right. Kronos software is very low maintenance and we have to do very little to keep the system running. Kronos team members are the experts in our industry and they exceeded all our expectations. The team was willing to go above and beyond and explore ideas that were even out of scope.”
  • Kristina Lengyel, vice president, global professional services, Kronos
    “The focus of Kronos professional services is to not just implement a technology but to help customers derive value from it. We believe in transforming customers’ businesses and organizations for success, no matter where they are located or which industries they’re in. This is why we work consistently to reinvent our methodology to meet customer needs and help them achieve business outcomes. We have worked on iterative sprints to calibrate and refine our solution; prepared the team effectively for testing, validation, and change; and incorporated the desired outcomes into the solution itself.”
