Kronos Embeds tibbr Into Workforce Central Suite

With tibbr, Kronos Unlocks the Power of Enterprise Social Networking for Its Customers

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/29/14 -- TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that its enterprise social platform, tibbr®, has been embedded within the Workforce Central suite of workforce management solutions from Kronos Incorporated, enabling Kronos customers to take full advantage of powerful collaboration across their daily workforce management activities. Kronos customers will now be able to build an active, positive community around employee performance and engagement.

"As enterprise social networking establishes itself as a vital tool for businesses of all sizes, it's becoming imperative for technology solutions across all verticals to incorporate a social layer," said Ram Menon, president, social computing, TIBCO. "Kronos stands out in its marketplace by bringing enterprise social networking to workforce management software, and in doing so is proving itself a true innovator in its industry."

By embedding tibbr within Workforce Central, Kronos empowers its customers with a central, social interface for a range of essential workforce management initiatives, including:

  • Engaging and motivating employees: Cultivate a collaborative culture where employees are encouraged to contribute ideas, share information, and crowdsource for strategic and routine problem solving. The rich social profiles available in tibbr enables employees to customize the information they want to share with their co-workers and highlight their contributions and expertise to foster better employee connections.
  • Driving productivity and efficiency: Deliver relevant information and give employees more input into their daily tasks through contextual activity stream updates. Make the most of the collective intelligence within an organization to build consensus, share best practices, rapidly onboard new employees and solve problems faster.
  • Improving visibility, communication and consistency: Break down barriers inherent in today's forms of communication, including email, and create a social network that maps the relationships and roles across a complex and widely dispersed workforce. Managers can now quickly tap available resources to address potential and costly workforce disruptions and operations.

"Social networking and collaboration in the workplace will deliver great value such as reduced employee turnover and cost, improved productivity, better customer experiences, and recognition for employees for their impact on business performance," said Bill Bartow, vice president, global product management, Kronos. "We see TIBCO as a strategic partner that will help our customers create an environment where powerful collaboration can occur within the context of daily work."
