CHELMSFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clemson University is expanding the use of its existing workforce management application from Kronos Incorporated across the entire campus and adding next generation Kronos solutions to further control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and improve workforce productivity. A long-standing customer of Kronos, the leading national public university has already achieved a 40-percent reduction in overtime-related costs with Kronos, and is now further leveraging the solution to more effectively manage a growing, modern workforce.

A major land-grant, science- and engineering-oriented research university, Clemson University is a long-time user of the Kronos time and attendance solution. The university achieved significant cost reductions with the Kronos solution by efficiently tracking overtime by pay period and applying pay rules automatically and consistently in the student affairs division. Based on these benefits, the university decided to extend the Kronos solution campus-wide for greater cost savings and efficiency gains.

Clemson University is adding more innovation in many aspects of its workforce management practices with an upgrade to the latest version of the Kronos solution and implementing various next generation tools including absence management; mobile applications; the award-winning next generation user interface, the Navigator; and the revolutionary new time clock, the Kronos InTouchTM.

While the new user interface will offer an unprecedented level of intuitiveness to employees, managers will be able to improve their productivity by quickly responding to employee requests through Kronos mobile applications. Kronos InTouch will provide employees more control over their time, enabling them to easily check accrual balances, request time off, and view schedules – all in real time. The absence management tool will help track time off and leave for all employees including faculty. Integrated with the other tools, this solution will offer a seamless process to match time-off with time-worked for all employees.

By utilizing the latest Kronos offerings, Clemson University will ultimately become more efficient in balancing its budget with institutional goals.
