Kronos Incorporated is a U.S.-based multi-national workforce management software and services company headquartered in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, United States, and employing 3,200 people. Kronos was founded in 1977 by Massachusetts Institute of Technology alumnus Mark S. Ain. Originally a manufacturer of timeclocks, the majority of Kronos revenue is now derived from software and services. The company provides applications for workforce management, as well as consulting, education, and support services to its customers, including cloud services.Microsoft was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen on April 4, 1975, to develop and sell BASIC interpreters for Altair 8800. It rose to dominate the personal computer operating system market with MS-DOS in the mid-1980s, followed by Microsoft Windows. The company's 1986 initial public offering, and subsequent rise in its share price, created three billionaires and an estimated 12,000 millionaires from Microsoft employees. Since the 1990s, it has increasingly diversified from the operating system market and has made a number of corporate acquisitions. In May 2011, Microsoft acquired Skype Technologies for $8.5 billion in its largest acquisition to date.
