CHELMSFORD, Mass., July 20, 2015 – Kronos Incorporated today announced that Dora Hotel Company, an award-winning hotel management organization covering brands such as Best Western, Comfort Inn, Hilton Garden Inn, Holiday Inn, and Residence Inn, has selected the Kronos Workforce Ready suite of workforce management solutions to be deployed in the Kronos Cloud.

News Facts

  • With employees dispersed across 24 locations, Dora Hotel Company needed to replace its previous manual workforce management system with an automated and standardized process for increased efficiency and accuracy. To address this business challenge, Dora Hotel Company selected the Kronos time and attendance, human resources, payroll, Affordable Care Act (ACA) management, and absence management applications.
  • The Kronos solutions will help the hotel company preempt errors that are not caught through manual processes; reduce payroll processing time from a week to a day; provide managers real-time labor data needed to run their departments effectively; and give employees easier access to their information.
  • More accurate and effective workforce management will additionally help Dora Hotel Company see when employees are about to approach overtime.
  • Automating the processes of enforcing and tracking of federal, state, and employer-specific leave polices will significantly reduce the time the organization spends on administering these complex policies, subsequently minimizing compliance risk. And the automated ACA management application from Kronos will specifically help Dora Hotel Company minimize ACA compliance risk by accurately tracking employee time and providing detailed auditing and reporting capabilities.
  • For added innovation in how the organization collects time-worked data from employees, Dora Hotel Company also purchased Kronos InTouch time clocks. This will also provide employees more control over their time, enabling them to easily check accrual balances, request time off, and view schedules – all in real-time.
  • By deploying in the Kronos Cloud, Dora Hotel Company will rely on Kronos to perform all configuration, maintenance, upgrades, and support of the workforce management solution, enabling the hotel company’s IT department to focus resources on other priorities.
