Kronos Incorporated today announced that Callaway Golf Company, a leading
manufacturer of premium golf equipment, has selected its solutions deployed in
the Kronos Cloud to globally standardize workforce management processes.

News Facts

  *Callaway Golf selected Kronos time and attendance and absence management
    applications to accurately collect employee time-worked data and minimize
    compliance risks associated with leave laws. The Kronos solution will
    integrate with Callaway Golf’s SAP ERP system, improving the overall
    accuracy of labor data entering the ERP system.
  *Callaway Golf is deploying the Kronos applications in the Kronos Cloud,
    allowing Kronos to perform all configuration, maintenance, upgrades, and
    support of the workforce management solution. This will enable the
    manufacturer to focus more on business operations while keeping costs
    down, as it won’t require additional IT resources.
  *For improved efficiency, Callaway Golf also selected mobile applications
    from Kronos – available on both smartphones and tablets – making it easier
    for managers and employees to complete a wide range of workforce-related
    tasks from any location, at any time. The instant visibility and mobility
    on labor-related issues while on-the-go will particularly benefit Callaway
    Golf’s population of field-based employees.
  *Callaway Golf chose Kronos to replace a payroll service bureau it
    previously used, as Kronos can easily and effectively support the global
    needs of multinational organizations as well as provide local,
    region-specific knowledge and support. In addition, the previous payroll
    service bureau could not fully automate and handle union-specific
    requirements – a process now automated and simplified by Kronos.
