    Does anyone currently use Kronos for HR and Payroll? If so, have you found it easy to integrate with Dynamics NAV? We are trying to find an easy way to integrate employee/payroll data to NAV 2017.

    Appreciate any help or advice.

    Thanks!

    Hi Lukas,
    We use Kronos for our timekeeping and we do load the data in to NAV tables. We have a report in Kronos with the needed data, we then use the Kronos Middleware software to extract the report data on a schedule, then we load it into the NAV SQL tables directly, however, I am sure you can also use Rapidstart to load the necessary data as well.
    We are on NAV 2015.
    Hope this helps,

    Hi Rachel,

    Thanks and yes that does help. Were you able to do the software with just Kronos or was it a combination of Kronos/Microsoft Partner getting it set up?

    Thanks,

    Lukas

    Hi Lukas,
    We worked directly with Kronos to get the Kronos Middleware downloaded and setup to run the report and extract it on a schedule. We setup the report in Kronos ourselves, but there was an issue with a column totaling issue that I did call contact Kronos support for. Otherwise, we did not involve our NAV/Microsoft partner at all, but then we were only applying hours to production orders, it was not anything as advanced as payroll so that may require more assistance.
    Let me know if you have more questions!
    Rachel

    Another solution to look at is Sierra Workforce.  They have an integration.

    Hi Ron. I had looked at some of the payroll add-ins. We really want a solution that can integrate both HR and payroll.

    I was curious on Kronos since it has employee sourcing/onboarding and payroll functions that I was hoping to easily integrate with NAV.

    Hi Lukas,
    We have an integration with Kronos and Nav.  It consists of a custom Kronos report we built to extract the summarized data, then an xmlport in Nav to import the data and create the journal.  Message me if you would like to speak directly or get more info.
    Thanks

    Thanks Mike. We are still looking at various options but I am glad to know that getting Kronos data to NAV doesn't require a bunch of manual work.

    Hi Lukas,

    I did an integration some years ago between Kronos and a different ERP.  At the time I think Kronos had tables to hold the Production Order data so employees could record time against production routing steps.  Are you also using that kind of feature?  If so how is Kronos synchronized with NAV or do users key that data in/scan with barcode?

    Hi Robert,

    We don't have any production. Currently we are service based and track labor hours per hour worked.

    Thanks,
    Lukas
