Texas school district deploys Kronos cloud-based biometric time and attendance solution

December 1, 2015 - 

Long term Kronos clients, Texas’ Galveston Independent School District recently moved its biometrics enabled workforce management solution to the Kronos Cloud.

The move is intended to reduce the time and resources associated with managing incremental software upgrades.

Serving more than 6,000 students, GISD has used the Kronos time and attendance application and biometric time clocks to manage 470 employees across 15 elementary, middle, and high schools.

As a result, the Kronos solution reduces compliance risk, improves productivity, and increases employee engagement for GISD.

Kronos consistently applies complex pay rules across all schools and departments, accurately tracks employee time and improves payroll accuracy, helping the school district to increase accountability and improve employee engagement.

The educational institution wanted to ensure that it was up-to-date on Kronos versions to maintain its objectives for an accurate time and attendance tracking and compliance management.

The move to the Kronos Cloud allows the school district to access the latest Kronos functionality that further increase productivity and employee engagement.

Additionally, the move will free up resources for the school district to focus more on its key mission of providing excellence in student services.

“Streamlined and cost-effective solutions are important for school districts to help manage tighter budgets, growing student populations, and the need to juggle many priorities,” said Rock Regan, director of public sector practice group at Kronos. “Effective workforce management can help meet all these goals and Galveston Independent School District is continuing to evolve its workforce management strategy to ensure that it has access to the right functionality at all times to create a positive environment for both employees and students.”
