  2. 2. “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 Con-way Inc.
  3. 3. 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.
  4. 4. 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 incidents. 4 out of 5 companies using workforce management have REDUCED COSTS by 17%. 1 out of 3 have INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY by more than 25%.

  5. 5. 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. 8-10% As a result of implementing Kronos for Logistics, Lipari Foods increased productivity to the equivalent of 8 to 10 percent of total payroll costs. Lipari Foods RESULTS ACHIEVED “ 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.” Brian Zilo, Human Resources Director Lipari Foods
