People spend ridiculous amounts of time on their phones. Did you know that US adults were predicted to spend an average of 3 hours and 35 minutes per day on mobile devices last year? I’ve recently started paying attention to the screen time reports on my phone only to learn that I’m just another statistic ...

But wait. That doesn’t necessarily mean those hours are unproductive. For many people, a portion of that screen time could be work-related. According to a 2016 report by Apperian, 58 percent of companies use apps to provide employees access to critical enterprise systems. We can only assume this percentage has grown in the last few years. And it makes sense. If that’s how people are spending their time, why not conveniently make important information available to them via mobile?

Kronos is one of those critical enterprise systems for many employees. Users can access Kronos mobile apps to punch in and out on the go; they can approve time off while dashing from meeting to meeting; and they can request vacation time from the comfort of their couch at home. As a mobile user, you know all of this. But keep reading. I do have news that could be new to you.
