The City of Houston uses Kronos for all payroll time collection in every department.  This system is designed not only to capture accurate working and leave hours but also give each employee full visibility into their time cards, accrual balances, pay stubs and annual W-2’s online.  Supervisors and managers have full visibility to manage all labor resources and control overtime.
