Incorporated today announced that AdvancePierre Foods has expanded
its use of Kronos workforce management solutions by adding HR
and payroll to more effectively manage its workforce. AdvancePierre
already uses Kronos for time
and attendance and absence
With more than 4,000 associates across 11 facilities, AdvancePierre
needed a way to centralize and streamline HR and payroll processes
across all locations.
Having used a service bureau for its payroll for many years,
AdvancePierre wanted to move the function in house to retain more
control over the process.
The Kronos payroll solution is easy and intuitive to use but also
capable of managing the complexities of multiple pay grades and job
AdvancePierre was drawn to Kronos’ ability to provide a single HR
system to contain all associate records, giving managers easy access
to the information they need to reduce errors and enforce policies
The reporting capabilities of the HR system were also a big selling
point, as managers now have access to the data they need to make
informed decisions in real time with limited administrative overhead.
Rather than have its own IT team manage the Kronos solution,
AdvancePierre uses Kronos cloud
services to handle all upgrades and maintenance, freeing resources
internally to focus on other business-critical issues.
Janet Byrum, director of HRIS and compensation, AdvancePierre Foods
all the vendors we considered, Kronos had the most intuitive,
easy-to-use products which will help expedite adoption by our
associates. Our executives’ jaws dropped when they saw the reporting
capabilities and the kind of valuable information we now have at the
tips of our fingers and at a moment’s notice.”
Amy Brar, senior director, HR/payroll, Kronos
is known for its high-quality products and excellent customer service.
Being able to better manage its most important asset – the workforce –
is invaluable. With Kronos, AdvancePierre is controlling labor costs,
minimizing compliance risk, and improving workforce productivity each
and every day.”
