Headline : Ward Transport & Logistics Deploys in the Kronos Cloud
Summary : Kronos Incorporated today announced that Ward Transport & Logistics Corp., a provider of warehousing and logistics services delivering to more than 10,000 customers, selected the Kronos Workforce Central suite of workforce management solutions deployed in the Kronos Cloud. With the cloud deployment, Ward Transport & Logistics expects to gain a fast return on investment, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.

With a diverse employee population consisting of dock workers, warehouse personnel, and truck drivers across more than 20 locations, Ward Transport & Logistics needed a flexible workforce management solution to streamline processes and improve efficiencies. Previously, the logistics organization used a variety of disparate systems deployed on site, relying heavily on IT for operations and system maintenance. Ward Transport & Logistics purchased Kronos time and attendance, HR, and payroll applications.

With a large percentage of its workforce being remote, Ward Transport & Logistics also purchased Kronos mobile applications, allowing employees to enter time through mobile devices directly from their worksite, eliminating travel time back to a central location. Prior to Kronos, the logistics organization did not have a way to accurately track multiple jobs with different pay codes, forcing Ward Transport & Logistics to rely on generalizations, rather than data. With Kronos, the organization now has access to real-time data that can help measure daily productivity and performance, helping the organization make more informed business decisions.

By deploying in the Kronos Cloud, Ward Transport & Logistics now relies on Kronos to perform all configuration, maintenance, upgrades, and support of the workforce management solution, enabling its IT department to focus resources on other business priorities.
