Kronos to Introduce Enterprise Social Networking in Its Workforce Management Solution
November 12 2013
Kronos was not in a rush to jump onto the social/collaboration wagon when a lot of other big players in the enterprise software market were doing it. In other words, Kronos chose not to deliver social for the sake of social. But it had good reason—the industries that it serves, such as health care, manufacturing, and public sector, are not exactly early adopters of hipster technologies.
At KronosWorks 2013, taking place in Orlando, Florida, the vendor announced that in December 2013, a
social networking and collaboration module
will be enhancing its Workforce Central solution. The Workforce Central Social Module includes:
activity stream updates
direct communication tools
document, image, and video sharing
subject matter/activity groups
To deliver its social applications, Kronos uses tibbr’s technology. It will be interesting to see what approach Kronos will take to promote and sell this optional module. Kronos may run into other social platforms—for example, Jive—that may have already been adopted by some of its customers. Whether Kronos will recommend change or adapt to what its customers already have remains to be seen.
Another interesting aspect to follow in the future is the manner in which organizations using Kronos will be transitioning from time tracking to social enterprise, given that the technology has caused important disruptions over the years, as described in the
report on social business platforms
that I published earlier this year.
I look forward to talking to Kronos as well as end users a few months down the road to find out how the solution has been adopted and how it will evolve.
