    Scenarios where ActiveCollab works well 1) ActiveCollab works well for small teams specifically T&M teams.Its invoicing feature is unique & can make your life easy. 2) It is very easy to use & posses good range of filters like on the task list, we can drag/drop tasks, Filter by assignee's,
    tasks lists, due dates, or completed tasks. 3) It has some simple but awesome features like when you're in
    the middle of writing something i.e a comment on story and get interrupted,
    it retains what you wrote. 4) It allows you to tag team members in threads of comments to grab their attention, its really needed when teams are distributed. Thus helping team members to collaborate easily & stay on same page. 5) It integrates pretty well with other web apps like quickbooks , Slack, Trello, HubSpot, Zapier etc Scenarios where ActiveCollab did not work well 1) Tasks can not have multiple assignee's here so if two members are working on same task it did not allow you to reflect that. 2) Sorting capability is not their under invoicing 3) It did not work well for larger teams 4) Search option is not very detailed & you may end up wasting lot of time searching one particular bug or issue.

    UKG is pretty well-rounded. There are some problems/lack of functionality, but it is very useful and helpful in other aspects. I mainly use the Recruiting Gateway and Onboarding Gateway. I wish there was more abilities for the hiring managers and other managers who are allowed to view posts/candidates. They can not view the presence tab, which is where documents the applicant attached are held and where documents that are uploaded by our Recruitment team are also uploaded. Since managers can't view this, it makes it difficult for them to see the whole picture and requires us to manually send them to the managers if needed. Also - the formatting in the Notes section under each applicant should have more format abilities. It all blends together in one big paragraph instead of allowing bullet points/tabs/etc.

    Cons

    ActiveCollab

    • Does not maintain default categories for tasks
    • Makes information difficult to share with others not on AC
    • Relies on other people to track their time correctly in categories for estimates
    • Mobile app is very hard to use and not user-friendly if you are working with multiple projects

    UKG

    • Onboarding - being able to really reach a new hire in the days before their start date, with the information that they may need ahead of time or on day 1
    • Proxy for the HR Team - HR usually gets requests from employees that it would be helpful if there was the ability to proxy in the system as that employee to see the exact errors or questions that arise, instead of asking for screenshots and having to hold meetings to see the employee's screen
    • Support - has been lacking recently compared to what it was. Most of the representatives are really knowledgeable, however, their ability to react to your service ticket in a timely manner leads to many escalations. In the past, we have been able to get quicker service and not miss SLAs, however recently we have noticed more slipping in response times.

      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

      There is a lot of functionality that we still have not been able to take advantage of due to getting our system up and running. Customer Service is a little strained at the moment due to the recent M&A's. I expect that things will get better in due time as we become more familiar with the system and customer service improves.

      I've found Ultipro to be completely reliable. Outages are typically planned to occur on weekends and only once did I have connections issues connecting Citrix to the server where our environment was housed, but within the hour connection was restored. I think that's a pretty good track record, considering I've used the suite daily for over three years. Especially when processing payroll--say the internet goes down in the middle of you performing a task... Ultipro is able to recognize that a connection error occurred and quickly restores the process that was running, avoiding lost productivity.

      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.

      ActiveCollab

      We have not required support for ActiveCollab as it works pretty seamlessly. We didn't have any issues with using the platform or with any billing issues. The self-service aspect of the platform is robust and easy to navigate so we have not encountered any errors that required assistance from the support team.

      Support is quick to respond and helpful when you don't understand how to use or implement their response. They are great at following up and checking in as well as escalating cases when they are more urgent and need more attention.

      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.

      Make sure you have all of your tax account information with all the states you are registered in available and that you are knowledgeable about the filing status, frequency, etc. We had some unique challenges with our state unemployment tax set up that I was not aware of and needed to be addressed prior to going live. Working with the state unemployment office can be a challenge.

      ActiveCollab

      ActiveCollab is easier to use and simpler in its setup. It has the right mix of features and simplicity. It's also project-oriented which is important for our workflow. Other tools are often too task-oriented, making it hard to track projects. Overall, ActiveCollab has a great mix of simplicity with good features.

The cost comparison also came in either close to or less than the others so the cost/benefit FAR outweighed the competitors.
