This Manufacturer Made the Switch from Kronos to WorkForce Software


  • With 40,000 users across 275 sites and 300 business units—ranging from unionised to non-union, salaried and non-exempt—this manufacturer previously used a mix of Kronos, Workbrain and Infotronics systems.  
  • They required a more agile and scalable solution to quickly respond to pay policy and time management practices given its highly unionised environment with over 100 local requirements.  



  • They selected WorkForce due to its ability to effectively handle their complex requirements.  
  • The solution allows for rapid adaptability in policy changes and offers an advanced system of record for data, essential for maintaining accuracy across various locations and conditions.  
  • The Clock Attestation functionality was crucial to comply with internal policies so that all time data is accurately captured and reported. 
  • The solution’s end-to-end service model, along with strong consultative support, helped to minimise data siloes and improve cooperation across teams. 


Benefits to Switching 

  • Accurate pay and time-off 
  • Significantly improved worker user experience 
  • Technology consolidation to a unified system 
  • Standardised processes across business units 
  • Decreased compliance risk 

Looking Ahead: WorkForce Software Will Continue Leading the Way

According to Nucleus, the workforce management market will grow more competitive as companies focus on their complex requirements. With the need to consolidate technology, solution providers will need to offer scalable, highly configurable functionality that is easy for frontline workers to use. WorkForce’s ability to adapt and innovate based on detailed customer needs, combined with its user-friendly interface, will likely keep it ahead of the competition.
