'Business as Usual' for Quake-struck NZ Council After Rapid Lync Rollout
2 page Case Study posted: 02/09/2014

After a magnitude 6.3 earthquake devastated Christchurch, New Zealand, 300 Regional Council employees had no place to work. IT staff remotely deployed Microsoft Lync to employee desktops and laptops enabling them to collaborate from their homes and temporary offices via video meetings and shared desktops. As a result, the Regional Council coped with a vastly increased workload, re-routing public transport through shattered streets and arranging disposal for millions of tons of demolition waste.

Cabinet Manufacturer Improves Efficiency with Automated Workforce Management
4-page Case Study posted: 07/21/2011

American Woodmark Corporation is a cabinet manufacturer with nearly 3,500 employees in 20 facilities across the country. The company used a mix of stand-alone manual and automated workforce management solutions that created inconsistencies in work and pay rules, overtime rules, accrual granting, and attendance point assessment. Furthermore, the solutions didn’t give the corporate office real-time visibility into critical labor measurements at individual locations. As the company grew, the inconsistencies and lack of visibility became increasingly problematic. The company wanted a flexible, scalable solution that also offered significant value and implementation support. It chose the Kronos® Workforce Central® suite with Microsoft SQL Server. This combined solution gives American Woodmark companywide consistency in pay practices and a dramatic increase in workforce efficiency.
