Kronos Inc. has added new functionality to their Web-based automated tracking and workforce management application in the wake of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Kronos webTA, is an employee time tracking, attendance, and labor management off-the-shelf software solution designed for government to increase accuracy and reduce costly payroll errors.
“This new direction for the webTA family of offerings is building a ubiquitous computing environment where an employee or supervisor will have anytime, anywhere access to quality information,” Jeff Babcock, vice president and general manager of Kronos Federal, said in a statement.
Due to tightening budgets and increased transparency requirements, Kronos has released an updated version of webTA that will allow agencies to track specific activities affecting workforce numbers and pay rules. According to a release by the company, the new webTA, scheduled for availability in August, will help government customers
- Track data at a granular level by easily adjusting pay rules within the system to meet ARRA requirement of reporting activities for which the stimulus money is used.
- Control labor costs and minimize compliance risk with accurate data acquisition and automated reporting processes.
- Migrate and train, including Online tutorials to allow more rapid roll-out for the users.
Agencies including the Department of Agriculture; Department of Commerce; Department of Homeland Security; Department of Housing and Urban Development; and the Smithsonian Institution use Kronos to automate time, attendance, and leave data entry processes.
“With the challenges of transparency and accountability as well as managing ARRA funding, webTA is positioned well to support the needs of our customers today and into the future,” Mr. Babcock said.
