Kronos Incorporated today announced new mobile applications for webTA, a workforce management solution that automates the tracking and management of U.S. federal government workers. Kronos (News - Alert) also announced two additional products within the webTA solution, both of which provide enhanced data capture functionality. These new Kronos offerings are designed to help federal government agencies further control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and improve workforce productivity.

News Facts

The apps give employees and managers flexibility in how they interact with each other and provide an anytime, anyplace, instant connection to webTA.

    • Enhanced data capture - With escalating budget pressures and a demand for higher degrees of transparency, federal government leaders are requiring not only more granular levels of data capture across accounts and projects, but across¬†activities and cases (projects associated with funding) as well.¬†The webTA solution now includes products that enhanced data capture and reporting for activities and cases by allowing:
      • Automatic capture of data at the account code, activity, and task levels in a single timesheet;
      • Tabbed summary of labor and case hours fed directly from timesheets; and
      • Case tracking assignment at the employee or organizational levels. In addition, the Case Coordinator role, newly defined in webTA, provides for a more effective management of the case tracking process.
    • More than one million employees within 70 U.S. federal government agencies use a Kronos workforce management solution.
