News Facts

  • GFS Canada, a division of North America's largest broadline family-owned foodservice distributor, delivers a diverse product line to grocery, hospitality, and other foodservice businesses, selected Kronos time and attendance and absence management applications. For added innovation in how the organization collects time-worked data from employees, GFS Canada also purchased Kronos® InTouchTM time clocks to provide employees more control over their time, enabling them to easily check accrual balances, request time off, and view schedules - all in real time.
  • By automating and standardizing critical workforce business processes across its operating divisions, GFS Canada will gain real-time insight into critical labor data. Kronos will offer productivity benefits by accurately tracking logistical details across the supply chain, providing data that will help the entire organization save money while improving the customer experience.
  • Kronos will also standardize reporting to further refine the organization's pay-for-performance compensation practice, enhancing employee satisfaction in addition to enabling superior service. For example, drivers can be paid by the kilometers they travel or cases they deliver as these activities can be accurately tracked with Kronos. This will also lead employees to work more efficiently and accurately.
