Kronos interface with GP?

  • 1.  Kronos interface with GP?

    Posted Jan 07, 2017 09:03 AM

    Will a Kronos timekeeping product fully interface with GP without double entry or using integration manager to import files?  I have a retirement home client that is being urged to purchase a Kronos product instead of upgrading their Untiime time & attendance biometric system that fully interfaces with GP.  Are you a GP user that uses a Kronos product that fully interfaces with GP or are you a partner that have clients using Kronos?  What product does fully interface with GP?  My client does not want to incur any double entry of employees nor rely on having to export a file from Kronos that we have to write an integration from integration manager to import hours for payroll processing.  

    Thank you for taking a few minutes to answer my questions.

    We've been using Kronos Workforce Central for ten years with a GP Partner front office product, 1st Staff Back Office (formerly Personnel Agency Management, or PAM) from Professional Advantage.  We have a custom interface that exports the Kronos time into a CSV file which is then imported into 1Staff via their built-in Timesheet Data Import.  From that point on it is treated natively: the 1Staff Timesheet Entry is used to build the GP timesheet batch.

    Works very well and I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have.

    We have been using Kronos and GP for over 5 years including working with nursing homes (which we no longer have). We have a Kronos feed into GP employee updates (new, xfers, etc.) and a punch feed back from Kronos for GP Payroll. Has worked out nice for us over the years.  For scheduling though we really used OnShift scheduling software and it dovetailed nicely with GP and Kronos.

    We use Kronos for our Time and Attn.  We have no problem with the Integration Manager.   So basically you build it once in GP and then you can add items in Kronos Table files to get new Pay Codes etc into GP.  So far we have never had to rebuild the GP Side.  We do copy it for New Company with in.  GP just brings a CVS file into GP as a Batch and you build it and go on.

    Hi !

    using both Kronos and GP , I've found a few tricks.

    one is that you can either write reports from within Kronos or outside using ssrs or other programs to access the correct tables. Kronos support can help you ID the right tables

    Kronos has 2 pieces , timekeeper and HR/Payroll .. I assume your looking at the timekeeper side and using the payroll package on GP?

    In kronos their is a tab called Data integration. in that you can select interfaces. Using that you can create an interface that generates your needed GP  import report and saves it on a preset schedule and location .

    Then using the  smart connect  or other  import program you then set up a pull the file  into GP and do clean up afterwards .

    If you really want to , you can set up smart connect to access KRONOS using a SQL query  and pull it directly into GP.

    Thank you all for responding and sending me messages.  Their newer product can utilize eConnect.  I will post once we are live with the new Kronos product.

    We have been using Kronos Workforce Ready for a couple years now and love it.  We use a combination of their Middleware product and eOne SmartConnect to manage the integration of employees, accruals and projects/cost categories.  Timesheets are integrated with Project Accounting Timesheet Entry.  Not the simplest implementation but extremely reliable given GP is traditional on premise and Workforce Ready is SaaS.

    We are just beginning the work of implementing Kronos Workforce Timekeeper which will be integrated to our GP environment  ( I am planning to upgrade to GP 2016 before we cutover to Kronos). I didn't see a specific community for GP/ronos although maybe there should be one but . . .
    I was wondering if  anyone in this chain that has gone through (or will be going through) a Kronos timekeeper implementation would be willing to share their contact info with me for questions on how you might have dealt with items such as :

    1. Labor Levels
    2. Pay codes
    and lots of other questions I know are going to come up!

    Hi Jonathan,

    You are welcome to contact me if you wish to discuss how we have implemented the integration between Kronos and GP.  We have been using them together now for a couple years and continue to rollout to a larger user base without issue.  Prior to Kronos Taos utilized the Business Portal for project timesheet entry.

    Kim would be the best contact if you wish to have some guidance and assistance with your project but I can at least give you some insight as to how we have utilized the products at Taos.

    Regards,
