And it’s a wrap! KronosWorks 2017 has officially come to a close, and it was the most incredible one yet. I know on Tuesday I said that this year was my first KronosWorks; so, it’s true I make this claim without comparing to others in the past. I’m confident, though, that my fellow Kronites and customers who were in attendance will back me up. KronosWorks 2017 is most definitely going down in Kronos history as one to be remembered.
Here are a few of my personal highlights from the past few days…
Workforce Dimensions Unveiling – This is one super cool technology. The solution has reimagined what workforce management looks like and feels like with its intelligent Kronos D5 platform and responsive user design. Accessible from anywhere on any device, managers and employees alike can perform the tasks they need to with ease. I was truly impressed by what I saw during the demos! Workforce Dimensions makes workforce management look fun – even more fun than it already was, of course! You can read more about it in the Workforce Dimensions Solution Guide.
Catching Up With Customers – KronosWorks is a great place to connect with old friends. I was excited to bump into a couple of customers from Gordon Food Service (GFS). Last year, I went to Canada and toured the GFS Milton, Ontario distribution center with a colleague of mine on the User Research team. We gathered information about how managers and employees interacted with Kronos from observations and one-on-meetings with staff. We even walked through the freezer to experience what employees – and Kronos InTouch clocks for that matter – must withstand. It’s something like -10 degrees in there, and we laughed remembering how my glasses fogged up and practically iced over. Great to see you Toni and Luke!
Customer Appreciation Event – This year’s Customer Appreciation Event featured Train live on stage at The Joint – Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. But not only did we get to see Patrick Monahan and band jamming out to all their greatest hits, we also saw our own Jesse B., Customer Advocacy Manager at Kronos, and one of our fearless customers pulled up on stage for a stellar performance of Don’t Stop Believin’ – what an amazing evening it was!
The Expo – The expo was hopping with people visiting the Workforce Dimensions booth, Kronos Partner booths, Product booths, and our Services booths! We had three lucky winners claim the prizes we raffled off – an Amazon Echo Plus, a YETI Roadie Cooler, and an American Express gift card. I enjoyed meeting new customers during busy times and chatting with coworkers I’d only met virtually.
I'm already looking forward to next year! Save the date – same place but not same time. Hope to see you at the ARIA Las Vegas November 4-7.
