  • Carmen Crook, senior human resources generalist, Placon Corporation
    “We just installed the Kronos InTouch in our manufacturing facility and it’s fantastic! It is user friendly and intuitive, akin to a smart phone. We really appreciate the remote access capabilities given that our corporate office is hours away from the manufacturing facility. InTouch is making the entire process of tracking our employees’ time so much easier than before.”
  • Bill Bartow, vice president of global product development, Kronos
    “We designed the InTouch for the modern workforce with market-leading features like a color touch-screen, integrated biometrics identification, and the ability to add applications. It’s so much more than a time clock. We are thrilled that our customers are rapidly adopting InTouch and find it both intuitive and easy to use. InTouch is setting a new standard in workforce management.”
  • Lisa Rowan, program director, HR, talent, and learning strategies, IDC
    “Melding an attractive, next-generation user interface into a touch-screen tablet, the InTouch looks unlike any time clock I have ever seen. And it performs differently as well – it’s not just punching in and out, but also checking schedules, applying for shifts, and checking PTO balances. It is as much an HR portal as it is a time clock and represents a step forward in the time capture market.”
  • Mark Smith, CEO and chief research officer, Ventana Research
    “Our research in the area of workforce management supports the need to increase productivity and engagement of workers at every opportunity. With the InTouch, Kronos has advanced what is possible by providing an interactive time clock with self-service access to worker-related information and applications. Going beyond traditional time clock activities, the InTouch provides the ability to engage in activities like phone calls, training, and communication via video. Kronos is innovating with InTouch and is changing the way organizations engage employees and increase their satisfaction to retain them as employees.”
