CHELMSFORD, Mass., June 15, 2015 – Kronos Incorporated today announced that Crayola LLC, a subsidiary of Hallmark Cards, Incorporated and the worldwide leader in children’s creative expression products, has moved its Kronos Workforce Central suite of workforce management solutions to the Kronos Cloud.

News Facts

  • Crayola, a long-standing Kronos customer of time and attendance, employee scheduling, and absence management applications, chose to migrate from an on premise deployment to Kronos Cloud for use across multiple manufacturing facilities.
  • With Kronos, Crayola has achieved significant benefits including minimized compliance risk by tracking and managing state and federal labor laws such as the Family Medical Leave Act. Based on these benefits and for more measurable success and an even faster return on investment, Crayola decided to move to the Kronos Cloud. Now, Kronos will perform all configuration, maintenance, upgrades, and support of the workforce management solutions, enabling Crayola’s IT department to focus on other strategic priorities.
