Crossland Construction Uses Kronos® to Tackle Industry Challenges and Build Solid Reputation
Forward-thinking construction company ensures accountability by eliminating guesswork from time and attendance
CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Crossland Construction, one of the premier construction companies in the U.S., is reaping significant benefits by implementing Kronos Essentials from Kronos® Incorporated. Kronos is enabling Crossland to automate time and attendance data collection, increase payroll accuracies and efficiencies, and simplify compliance across the organization.
Successful field tests have swiftly led to a fully deployed Kronos solution at every Crossland construction site.
Crossland employs more than 1,000 craftsmen, operators, steel erectors, and managers, and maintains offices in Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. Employees have unreservedly adopted the technology as it improves their morale with accurate time and attendance tracking, and raises the bar for accountability across the organization.
“Any time we can utilize technology to improve accuracy, reduce costs, and boost morale, it is a no-brainer for our organization,” said Bennie Crossland, president of Crossland Construction. “The ability to provide our customers with an accurate breakdown of labor costs puts us in a different league from our competition. Kronos is keeping Crossland projects accountable and predictable by tracking the time where it is spent – on the job – not at a centralized location far from the construction site.”
Crossland places Kronos biometric data collection terminals at each construction site. Kronos’ proven biometric technology helps Crossland eliminate buddy punching, the costly act of employees punching in for one another. “Before installing the biometric terminals, we had people who didn’t even work for us clocking in for actual employees,” added Crossland. “This resulted in an inflated payroll that negatively impacted our company and distorted our budget. With the Kronos terminals, we can ensure that our payroll is fair and accurate.”
Joyce Maroney, a senior director with Kronos, commented, “Asking hundreds of employees to rely on their memory can drastically impact the accuracy of a paycheck. Kronos takes the guesswork out of time reporting for field-based workers. When employees have an easy-to-use time and attendance solution on the job, the company stays on or under budget, and the employees are motivated to utilize the technology to ensure accurate compensation.”
For the last 30 years, Kronos has successfully helped both enterprise and mid- market companies manage their workforce.
Kronos Essentials is designed specifically to meet the needs of businesses with 250-2,500 employees. With 40 percent year-over-year growth, it continues to accelerate growth in the mid-market. This solution helps maximize limited budgets, resources, and IT infrastructure with an efficient implementation methodology, flexible payment and deployment options, and scalability
