Iowa City moves workforce management to the cloud

Iowa City is moving workforce management for than 750 employees across all departments into the cloud with the Workforce Ready solution from Kronos Inc.  

The city had been manually collecting and entering workforce data, which was slow and inefficient because of complex workforce compliance rules, payroll schedules for shift work and union contracts. The Kronos system promises to help automate and standardize the city’s workforce management processes, and save the city from acquiring additional hardware.

Because the Workforce Ready solution will be integrated with the city’s enterprise resource planning system, it will also increase the accuracy of employee time and attendance data entering the ERP system.  Kronos officials said this will enhance the overall quality of the entire payroll process.
