Increase Productivity, Control Costs — and Gain a New Competitive Edge
Driving a Strategic Advantage with Workforce Management
“With Kronos, we feel confident that we’re paying more than 22,000 people accurately
every week. Having access to timely labor information helps our operations team better
manage our staff and facilities.”
– Bryan Beazley, Project Manager
Four Reasons | You Need Kronos for Logistics
DRIVE THE BEHAVIOR THAT DRIVES PROFITS. Paying employees just for their hours worked
has a way of increasing unnecessary overtime and overall labor costs, without increasing
workforce productivity. You want to incentivize people for the activities and performance that
drive profitability and customer service.
SAFETY AND NONCOMPLIANCE CAN COST YOU. You need to comply with a vast array of
safety and labor regulations, and even collective bargaining contracts. Automating policy
management will help you track driver safety performance, meet state and federal labor
laws, and comply with collective bargaining agreements.
PEOPLE POWER YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN. In a fiercely competitive market, delivering
consistent, quality customer service depends on the quality and performance of your people.
You need to put the right person in the right place at the right time, and then be able to
redeploy them on the fly wherever they’re needed most.
KEEP IT SIMPLE. Automating processes — from timekeeping to scheduling to labor
performance tracking — pays dividends. Supervisors and employees can eliminate time-
consuming and repetitive tasks to spend more time running their business with real-time,
accurate decision-making data at their fingertips.
CONTROL LABOR COSTS | Put Payroll Dollars to Work
Perfect paychecks. Why continue to take chances with manual processes and disparate systems that are prone to
error and provide data only after payroll closes? Kronos®
for Logistics helps you eliminate paycheck errors at the
source, avoid unnecessary overtime with real-time alerts, and manage labor to budgets.
Accurate labor costing. How can you account for every dollar spent on every labor activity and then link those costs
to orders, routes, or customers? With Kronos for Logistics, you can automatically factor in different wages, premium
pay, or partial shifts while ensuring that bids for new business or contract renegotiations are profitable and accurate.
INCREASE WORKFORCE PRODUCTIVITY | Measure, Manage, Maximize
Drive productivity through incentive pay. Incentive pay programs are a popular means of increasing productivity.
However, this powerful resource is unavailable to companies lacking the necessary data access and insight. Businesses
frequently have their workforce management data in various applications — such as warehouse management
systems and routing and electronic onboard recorders — but lack the information to execute. The Kronos system is a
centralized application that collects and transforms this data into meaningful information and then applies complex
work and pay rules to create accurate, effective incentive pay plans.
Utilize real-time productivity data. With Kronos for Logistics, supervisors and managers can find, diagnose, and solve
workforce-related problems before they impact service levels and delivery times. The software will also identify actual
time worked as well as nonproductive time associated with scheduled breaks, material delays, or any uncontrolled

DELIVER QUALITY SERVICE | React Faster Than Your Competition
Immediate visibility. At the intersection of customer orders and labor allocation, every minute counts. When it comes to
picking and packing orders for shipment, Kronos for Logistics can help you make sure labor is scheduled and deployed
as efficiently as possible to meet demand.
Redeploy workers on the fly. Even the best-planned schedules can come undone when volumes spike, forecasts change,
or an employee calls in sick. Kronos for Logistics gives managers the visibility to uncover hidden capacity by identifying
idle or underutilized workers and redeploying them on the fly to where they’re needed most. The ability to identify and
leverage these pockets of productivity helps keep service levels and profits on track.
CONSISTENTLY MINIMIZE RISK | Address Safety and Compliance Proactively
Complete policy management. Automatically track incidents, generate warning letters, provide audit trails for actions
taken, and have them all tied directly to an employee’s record. With Kronos for Logistics, you can also capture and
report on all hours worked, including hours-of-service rules, while setting alerts and reminders for when licenses are
nearing expiration or recertification is required. Gain detailed analysis on where, when, and with whom safety incidents
are occurring to help identify root causes and take corrective actions.
Eliminate compliance guesswork. Correctly hire and schedule workers with appropriate certifications, training, and
licenses to help make certain you have the right people where and when you need them most. Apply work and pay
rules consistently and fairly across your organization, and streamline the process of managing FMLA, OSHA, union
agreements, and other labor regulations.

for Logistics, Lipari Foods increased
productivity to the equivalent of
8 to 10 percent of total payroll costs.
“ The Kronos suite has been a major tool in many
of our cost-saving initiatives … we’re able to do
more with less, and we’re better at doing it.”
