Integrated Payroll Services (IPS) was providing human capital management (HCM) services to clients in the St. Louis, Missouri, area and throughout the U.S. but found that offering multiple disparate solutions required manually interfacing client files and fields. For IPS staff, selling and supporting multiple solutions was confusing and led to inconsistent training and service issues that frustrated them and clients. Specifically, their legacy platform did not offer full-service time and attendance functionality or new-hire enrollment tools that included advanced onboarding functionality.

What Integrated Payroll Services needed was a partner and a solution that could:

  • Provide a unified platform of HCM solutions and a single workforce database across all modules
  • Meet clients’ HCM needs from pre-hire to retire: HR, time management, scheduling, payroll, benefits administration, and more
  • Offer cloud-based technology to ease IT administration and provide disaster recovery functionality
  • Scale up to support clients’ growth needs and meet the HCM needs of larger prospective clients
  • Offer extensive sales tools and customizable marketing resources to help engage prospects and increase sales closure rates
“Kronos allows us to provide the modules our clients need while offering easy scalability to support both the growth of our clients and the tremendous growth that IPS has experienced over the last several years since providing the Kronos software.”
