Delivering a customer experience across 21 countries in 109 facilities wasn’t always easy for Sitel Operating Corporation, a global business process outsourcer. With many disparate systems, Sitel needed a workforce management system that offered the global support that central IT and other services offer, but allowed the autonomy of the local sites to do some of their own management and have some of their own systems as well.

What Sitel Operating Corporation needed was a solution that could:

  • Ensure that agents are paid correctly by capturing real-time hours
  • Manage global labor laws to maintain compliance
  • Deliver immediate reporting for insight into labor hours
  • Accurately and automatically track time and absence management
“With Kronos we’ve got a program so we capture these hours and we capture the overtime, et cetera and make sure that the agents get paid correctly on pay day. It is a big win for us and that’s really one of the big values that Kronos gives us.”
