Your clients trust you with their information, that’s why keeping their data safe is an essential part of being a service provider. As more and more software solutions continue shifting to a cloud-based model, “data security” has become a larger concern and a hot topic for most organizations. Not all human capital management (HCM) vendors are created equal, especially when it comes to their security measures. When evaluating any vendor’s cloud solution, it’s essential that you know your clients’ applications and data are being maintained by a state-of-the-art data center facility that incorporates multiple levels of security.

Kronos understands that cloud solutions must be backed by world-class technology infrastructures that you and your customers can count on day in and day out. And our partners couldn’t agree more. That’s why they choose Kronos over other vendors who often don’t offer the same level of maximum protection we do. To close out our Top 10 Reasons to Join the Kronos Workforce Ready Partner Network series, we have:

Reason 9:

Kronos partners have confidence in our security and reliability.

There are some things that aren’t worth gambling on – keeping your information secure is one of them. That’s why the Workforce Ready cloud infrastructure environment features a true multitenant architecture that provides the highest levels of data security, system uptime, and built-in redundancy in the industry. Unlike most other technology vendors, Kronos hosts data in not just one, but two data centers – a primary and secondary, which are among the most secure, connected, and compliant facilities in the industry. Built from the ground up to help ensure the availability and security of the Workforce Ready application, Kronos’ data centers deliver seamless business continuity across virtually any circumstances.

Furthermore, Kronos data centers are compliant with SOC and Department of Defense (DoD) standards, undergoing rigorous auditing and certification processes, which allows our partners to rest easy knowing their information and that of their clients’ is safely stored to the highest degree. To ensure maximum uptime of Workforce Ready applications, system operation is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. In addition, our system’s uptime has historically measured 99.79 percent or greater monthly for unscheduled outages. Full database backups are performed weekly with incremental backups running daily. What more could you ask for in a cloud-based technology vendor?

Well, maybe one more thing… How about having the backing of one of the largest HCM industry leaders? Our partners understand Kronos’ products are here to stay, now and in the future.

Workforce Ready partners choose Kronos for security and ongoing training.

Reason 10:

You’ll have the backing of a billion-dollar HCM company when you join the Partner Network.

When partners choose Kronos as their HCM technology vendor, they’re making a decision they can trust. With over 40 years in the industry, Kronos’ products are being used every day by over 40 million people in 100 countries. Partners know that choosing a mainstay technology vendor means they simply don’t have to worry about product investment, maintenance, and R&D – they leave that up to the experts. With Kronos’ revenue continuing to grow each year, the numbers speak for themselves. In fiscal year 2017, the company reported $1.3 billion in recognized revenue, leaping from $1.2 billion the previous year. And with no plans in sight to slow down, Kronos expects to hit $1.5 billion in revenue by the end of fiscal year 2019.

As a Kronos Workforce Ready partner, you can choose to leverage the Kronos name or not – depending on your business model. Either way, partners enjoy the power behind the Kronos name when they're selling in their local markets. Your clients want the security and reliability of a large, well-established organization while still enjoying local, consultative support. Partners can offer the best of both by choosing to be a regional organization steeped in deep local industry knowledge, while having the ability to sell an enterprise-level solution that’s recognized world-wide. As Kronos Authorized Resellers, our partners have an edge on the competition and often win more deals than their competitors.

We know there are a lot of technology vendors to choose from. As a service provider, evaluating a best-fit HCM technology partner that you know has your best interests in mind can be daunting. That’s why in this first blog series, our mission was to paint a complete picture of our partnership and the reasons why the Kronos Workforce Ready Partner Network is a perfect fit for our network of service providers. We hope you enjoyed following our series and keep an eye out for similar ones in the future.
