With all of my experience, I think that product is a very effective tool which should be implemented by companies. I believe that this tool can do wonders in industries that are related to Media, Banking and Finance, Manufacturing, Retail, Pharmaceutical, and even much more. This tool has a broad horizon and this is very rare nowadays. The product has always been there at all times of need with an optimal level of facilitation and some highly qualified and trained customer representatives.

I have worked with other HR systems and this one just doesn't compare. The ease of use and system availability for administrators is amazing. I worked with UltiPro at a company and left and wasn't using it for two years. When I came back to a company that had it, within a day I felt like a fluent UltiPro user again. Its just that easy to use and the same goes for the end user. We even have Partners that are updating their own direct deposits and enrolling in benefits!

Pros

TalentPulse

  • It is extremely easy to use and has a very intuitive user interface.
  • The ability of this tool in capturing all of the employee data through the help of a mass upload is great.
  • The tool is hosting different kinds of assessment tools that capture all the data in a single well-tailored report.
Christ Worth | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Pro

  • UKG Pro has a fantastic support team that wants you to get the most out of the product in terms of functionality
  • The UKG Community is a valuable resource that is very reliable for trainings and troubleshooting
  • UKG Pro is filled with endless possibilities for custom settings and builds specific to your needs as a company
Jeremy Johnson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

TalentPulse

  • Even though the reporting is quite easy, the layouts are a little difficult to handle and review.
  • There are many minor level operational issues present in the product which need some effort to be fixed.
Christ Worth | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Pro

  • Supervisors have difficulty with the time off approvals. It's not intuitive. Would like to see an interactive time off calendar that allows them to view approved, pending, canceled and rejected requests and also to approve/reject requests from the calendar.
  • Timesheets do not display daily hours in terms of regular and OT. It just lists the total number of hours worked. It would be helpful if it would break it down to regular and OT on the timesheet itself. Makes it easier for supervisors when reviewing and approving timecards.
  • In the Employee Admin/My Employees list, it would be nice if the default view was active employees only. Most of the time that is what people want to see. There are far less times that we try to view termed employees.
  • When employees use the mobile app and try to access their timecards, it diverts them to the web version and they have to log in a second time. It would be nice to have an app that they could access all that information in a single location.

We are overall happy with UltiPro and it works well for our organization and we have plans to expand our usage of it even more so we will definitely be continuing with the product. We are thinking of adding the functionality for training and recruiting as well, which is an add-on product

Ultipro is by far the very best HCM solution that I've used, and I don't mind acting as a point of contact to anyone that might be interested in hearing from an actual user about my experiences with the suite. Ultipro can pretty much handle anything that you throw at it, while ensuring that what you throw at it is compliant with federal and state regulations. It really is quite simple to use and only gets easier to use the more you use it obviously. I would encourage anyone that is having issues with the suite to partner with their customer success manager to tackle anything that is at any point problematic.

In the 3+ years that we've been live in UltiPro, I believe the core HR/Payroll module went down one time. I don't recall how long it was down for, possibly an hour or two, but thankfully it was not during a payroll week for us so it did not impact us significantly. Other than that, there are some minor outages every once in a while with the Recruiting application, but the communication when those outages occur is very good so you always get status updates.

Normally UKG Pro loads quickly. We had been having major issues with reports running in a timely manner but recently they broke out our virtual server to another instance where is wasn't sharing resources and that seems to have helped reporting run more efficiently.

I've been to a few in-person (hands on) training sessions and it is very similar to the online classes. You have the same reference material to look back on after the training. So regardless of in person training or online you really get the same thing.

I love that it's free and flexible. Some of it could have a little more hands-on and have trainers that can answer different scenarios. If the trainer has not been a user, they may not always be able to relate. In most cases they do a great job at answering questions.

UltiPro made it very easy to implement. I implemented UltiPro on my own (as we were short-handed), in addition to my other duties, and was able to stay on track with our original implementation timeline. The process is laid out in a very detailed method. This was by far the most thorough and easiest implementation that I have been through

Alternatives Considered

TalentPulse

I find this product an amazing tool that has delivered a pleasant experience. This tool is different from other alternatives as it provides different practitioners with some valuable insight that I think has a fundamental value attached to it. I have seen different software that just leaves on a high and dry note after implementation but with TalentPulse they worked so closely and supportively for the sake of improvement.
Christ Worth | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Pro

UKG Pro won hands-down. The flexibility, the family feel of the partnership, the customer support model, the reporting, the scalability, and the custom-programming needs of company-specific items were all much better than the competitors. The cost comparison also came in either close to or less than the others so the cost/benefit FAR outweighed the competitors.

Return on Investment

TalentPulse

  • The overall impact of this tool is that it has saved a lot of time for our team members to use.
  • This program is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface due to which there is no such hassle and rocket science involved for grasping the product.
  • Overall I am highly satisfied with the whole product due to its features and the fact that it acts as a bridge between business strategies and talent.
Christ Worth | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Pro

  • UKG has many great features that help streamline our processes and help us to better manage our time. We are excited to be adding the case management and file management this year and our hope is this will benefit all departments.
