Implementation Process, Roles & Responsibilities
Kronos Saas SMB fixed scope implementations follow our Paragon methodology – an iterative, collaborative approach, driven by value and realized through collaboration. Paragon is bolstered by tools and techniques, such as configuration specific to your industry and region, Kronos process recommendations, dynamic documentation to ensure you’re always up to date, and accelerated testing processes to ease the effort and improve the results of testing. The Paragon project lifecycle, roles & responsibilities, are discussed in more detail here.
Workforce Central Core Implementation Services - All Modules
The following implementation services are included within all modules:
|Workforce Central – Project methodology and technical environments – per module|
|Project Management||Creation and maintenance of an online project workspace, work plan, issues and risks management, weekly status calls and reports. Kronos Project Manager will work with Customer Project Manager to jointly run project. Project Management includes transition to Kronos Global Support after the first deployment go-live.|
|Implementation Approach||For each Workforce Central module purchased:
|Technical Architecture||Two environments (1 Production, 1 Development) will be designed and built to house all the modules purchased. Implementation will occur in the Production environment prior to cutover. The Development environment may be refreshed from Production to support testing and training activities.|
|User Authentication||Application-level authentication will be set up for users. Note that if Single Sign on capability is desired, that needs to be purchased as an a la carte service offering|
|Training||We train your core team, and provide you with Knowledge Pass collateral and toolsets to train your end-users. Our Training Points system allows you to be flexible in how you train your core team: the Training Points provided with each Saas SMB proposal do vary based on employee/module subscription counts but always provide both direct project team / system administrator training and indirect training such as train-trainer classes to support end-user training. Kronos training curriculums, along with points per class, can be reviewed on the Kronos customer web-site https://community.kronos.com/s/learn
User Education outside of Knowledge Pass and the Training Points packaged within the offering is not included in core program scope. End user training curriculum development, consulting, and classes may be quoted separately and additional to the program.
|Rapid Implementation||Saas SMB fixed scope implementations are designed to deliver value quickly to your organization. Project timelines generally span 2-5 months depending on the number of modules selected. Implementation support for these time spans are included in the package. Extended project timelines requested by customers can be supported with additional professional services agreed via change order.|
- Purchase and implementation of Workforce Payroll also requires purchase and implementation of Workforce HR
- When purchasing Workforce HR or Workforce Payroll as an add on to Workforce Timekeeper, Workforce Calculated Accruals is a required module. Additional Workforce Timekeeper consulting and configuration will also be required which can be quoted separately to this program.
