Mumbai, Jun 20: Leading Global Workforce Management solution provider Kronos has entered into a strategic alliance with the Satyam group on its solution distribution. The Company had also firmed up deal with Bharat Forge, for providing its solutions that aimed to enhance employee productivity.
The nearly 700 Million USD Company, which set shop in India six months ago, had already spread its wings to Noida and Mumbai, besides its base in Bangalore and had a personnel count of 80 that was expected to multiply further, country Manager for India James Thomas told the sources here. He said the Satyam alliance was a major win for the Company as it would enable it to percolate rapidly into the Indian market. Kronos would be providing its suite of workforce management solutions to Bharat Forge that would enable the Kalyani Group Company to efficiently manage the contributions of its personnel besides also providing information on the output of each employee.
Though Oracle and SAP had similar solutions, the Company had no real competition in the world for its solutions, Mr Mike Adamson, Vice President for International Operations on a visit to India, said.
He said the Company had also started its operations in China in Beijing and Shangai with around 18 personnel. But, the growth potential in India was huge, he said adding that the manufacturing sector, retail, logistics, and healthcare are major buyers of its solutions, which now cater to nearly 70 per cent of the fortune 1,000 Companies back in the US. Mr Adamson said even government operations could find easy solutions to enhance employee productivity using its solutions.
Mr Adamson said the growth prospects for work force management solutions in the Asia pacific region was ''absolutely phenomenal'' more so in countries like India, where the growth dynamics was strong. He expected a 40 per cent growth in the sector in India, where the concept was very new.
