Why will you be present at the Finance Indaba?
"Kronos Workforce Management (Kronos WM) solutions radically improve effectiveness and efficiencies for organisations in terms of managing all aspects of workforce management and controlling excessive costs related to absenteeism and overtime experienced in South Africa and globally. We'll share our hard-earned bragging rights with financial professionals across diverse verticals so that they can unlock opportunities hidden within their workforce processes to drive profitability."
What will you be talking about?
"Kronos WM applications are crucial in enabling greater visibility into labour activities for the purposes of effectively managing and maximizing worker productivity, controlling labour costs, tracking operational tasks and minimizing compliance risks.
"According to research, absenteeism costs South Africa about R16 billion per year. These costs are excessive, real and measurable. But there is good news - risks and costs of absenteeism that have harmful effects on scheduling, overtime and productivity can be controlled. We want to show finance professionals how they can regain control and reclaim increased levels of productivity and profitability."
What are the challenges you can help finance professionals/firms with in 2016?
"The business case for Kronos is principally in terms of efficiencies gained. Kronos' global reputation for cutting costs, managing compliance and increasing profits is phenomenal. We want our customers to focus their attention on their business goals without being hampered by outdated or manual processes that divert from their core functions. Through Kronos WM we will optimize the attendance and profitability of an organizational workforce, whether mobile, remote or off-site, by empowering management with key insights into real-time information."
What has been key to Bytes enjoying success in different territories?
"Powerful real-time information, uncompromised user experience, mobile management and cloud-based functionality are some of the key differentiators of Kronos. Kronos is designed specifically to improve productivity and ease-of-use for employees, their line managers and executives. We top-up the bottom-line of all our customers by adding value, cutting costs and increasing profits."
How can Bytes help keep absenteeism under control?
"Through our partnership with Kronos, we provide a solution that helps companies get ahead of the game, by automatically alerting managers when employees are approaching defined policy limits. The solution also empowers the employees to stay on top of their own attendance records by using employee self-service tools that track their annual and sick leave balances. Having a system in place to stop "stolen hours" allows management teams to regain control and enables organisations to reclaim their productivity and profitability. Its unique focus on absenteeism enables Kronos to assist organisations to cut their operational costs, keep them fully compliant and increase their profitability."
