Pioneer Metal Deploys Kronos in the Cloud to Manage Rapid Expansion

Metal Finishing

CHELMSFORD, Mass.—Pioneer Metal Finishing (www.pioneermetal.com), a manufacturing company that offers a wide array of metal finishing services with locations across the U.S. and Mexico, has implemented workforce management solutions from Kronos Incorporated in the Kronos Cloud, according to a release from Kronos.

Pioneer Metal is rapidly growing, both organically and through acquisitions. The manufacturer, whose situation was detailed in Constellation Research, Inc.'s "System Consolidation in the Cloud Enables Rapid Growth: Fast-Growing Metal Finishing Company Puts HR System in the Cloud," needed a workforce management solution that could scale for its growing employee population.

The Kronos Workforce Ready® suite— including time and attendance, human resources, and payroll—replaces a legacy mainframe-based product used by Pioneer Metal and operated by a service bureau provider. The previous product had limited functionality and reporting capabilities for the rapidly expanding enterprise of 1,400 employees. Since going live, the Kronos suite has reportedly helped Pioneer Metal cut down on costs and improve efficiencies, running at half the operating cost of its previous vendor while also doubling business functionality.

Pioneer Metal also uses Kronos mobile applications to provide employees with anytime, anyplace access to their leave balances and paycheck information via their mobile devices. Using Kronos mobile applications also frees up HR staff to spend time on more value-added activities.

With the Kronos suite, Pioneer Metal HR staff is able to easily and quickly load new hire information into the system, which is particularly beneficial when the company conducts an acquisition requiring hundreds of records to be loaded within a short timeframe, according to the company.
