Kronos Workforce Tablet Analytics for iPad gives retailers ‘meaningful intelligence’

by David Needle

January 14 2013

Workforce Tablet Analytics, now available from Kronos, gives retailers a single view into labor, sales, and traffic data in a format the company says provides “meaningful business intelligence.”

The iPad solution includes on-demand visibility into retail operations through configurable dashboards. These dashboards highlight key performance indicators with easy-to-interpret reports the company says enable managers to drill down through all levels of the organization, such as stores within districts or departments within stores.

Kronos says it’s specifically addressing the needs of field managers and workforce issues. For example, Workforce Tablet Analytics provides actionable intelligence, such as recommended labor adjustments to help keep labor hours and cost in line with budget or forecast labor data. A retailer could use this information to make appropriate adjustments mid-week or any time to most effectively maintain productivity.

Workforce Tablet Analytics is available in both the Kronos Cloud and on-premise deployments.

The company says that when Workforce Tablet Analytics is fully integrated with the entire Kronos for Retail workforce management suite, customers get data consistency across the organization from a multitude of sources including forecasting, scheduling, time and attendance, POS, traffic counters, warehouse management systems, and more.

“This helps retailers realize value from Big Data as they gain information and insights across silos and be more effective in driving continuous improvement efforts,” Kronos said in a release.

One early user, Paul de Freitas, store systems and business development director at The Container Store, said Kronos is able to handle a great deal of complexity and being on “the iPad helps to make it an easy and familiar experience.”
