Workforce Management Solution Provider Improves Sales and Time to Market with OBA

By | Business Case Consulting, Case Study | No Comments

Kronos® Incorporated, the leading workforce management solution provider, required a better way to provide its customers with rich but inexpensive reporting and analytics capabilities. Kronos found increasing customer demand for easy access to flexible reporting that static reports couldn’t provide without extensive modification. Yet these custom reports were difficult to develop and modify. Kronos included an Office Business Application (OBA) component built within Microsoft® Office Excel® 2007 with the latest release of its flagship offering, Workforce Central® 6.1. This OBA, called Workforce Worksheet™, provides ready access to the wealth of high-quality workforce performance data within Workforce Central, and enables Kronos customers to relate workforce performance with other critical business performance data. By adopting an OBA product development strategy, Kronos was able to increase customer interest in its products, leading to additional sales, and reduce product development effort.
