California’s Monterey County Sheriff’s Office Uses Biometric Tech from Kronos to Improve Productivity

June 29, 2012 - 

In a move to control labor costs, minimize compliance risk and improve workforce productivity, California’s Monterey County Sheriff’s Office has chosen Kronos Incorporated to implement an integrated suite of workforce management solutions, relying heavily on biometric information.

Specifically, Monterey County Sheriff’s office has selected Kronos time and attendance and TeleStaff applications, as well as the revolutionary new biometric Kronos InTouch time clock, using fingerprint recognition tech to identify unique users and provide a customized experience.

“All governments today are facing fiscal challenges and will need to more effectively manage labor costs, as it accounts for a significant portion of all operational expenses,” Scott K. Miller, sheriff-coroner of the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office said. “For this reason, we selected Kronos. Through real-time visibility into labor data, Kronos will help us allocate our resources more effectively and efficiently, and the time and money saved can be applied to improving public safety — our biggest priority.”

The medical center in the same county has already implemented Kronos, and based on positive results, the Sheriff’s office chose to replace its manual processes with Kronos.

Among many benefits, Kronos will help the Sheriff’s office accurately align staff to demand, filling a critical need, particularly in mission-critical jobs regarding public safety and will also address unique public safety requirements such as shift, post, and event scheduling. Additionally, this solution will create schedules while taking into consideration complex federal, state, and union laws and regulations.
