Great for a mid-size company, great for OFCCP documentation, multiple users friendly. Might be a challenge in a larger environment where there is a more built out, streamlined process in place unless there was a specialist to set it up exactly to the needs of the organization and the process.

I think the software is great, but support is disappointing. Rapid Response is great, but we expected to have core team to support and help us. This core team is not helpful and takes days to respond back to emails. I'm extremely disappointed with our tax support.

Pros

Avature ATS

  • Search capabilities - ability to pipeline top talent.
  • Communication with hiring managers in the hiring manager portal - resumes/notes don't get lost in email and are always accessible to anyone involved in the hiring process.
  • Ability to customize - we've been able to change work flows for different needs, and different business groups as well.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Pro (formerly Ultimate Software UltiPro)

  • The payroll process is very streamlined and easy to use as opposed to other providers.
  • They offer a multitude of training modules and opportunities which are very professionally done.
  • They communicate well in most cases. There are a couple of exceptions such as file feeds.
Cynthia Cicchetti | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Avature ATS

  • Easily over-engineered. While it's great to be able to customize, there are times where there are too many choices.
  • Would like to see it integrate better with our HRIS system.
  • Still a lot of manual steps in the workflow.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Pro (formerly Ultimate Software UltiPro)

  • We have a lot of processes that go through the system with several approvals. Sometimes, the process will get stuck with one approver who requests to change the effective date, and we need to resubmit the whole transaction to fit the update.
  • We find that BI can be difficult for our most skilled users.
  • We have many rehires whose company paid benefits need to manually reinstated to their profile. We wish these were auto-added as if they were a completely new hire.

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.

From a web page load perspective, it's tricky. My personal computer that I built, runs/loads pages very quickly. On my work laptop, it seems to lag or have a slow load time for pages. Additionally, some windows open and they cannot be moved easily, because of resolution settings on monitors. Currently do not have integrations fully setup, but not worried about the slow/run time on them

Usually quite good, but sometimes get someone who knows less about the product than I do. BI support is problematic- [last] time I submitted a ticket I was told it couldn't do what I wanted even though the report had been working previously without any kind of explanation as to why it stopped working or why it could no longer be done.

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

Avature ATS

Avature is much better than OpenHire! OpenHire didn't give us the ability to share resumes or notes through the system and was very complicated to keep track of candidates that applied to multiple jobs or duplicate candidates. Was also very archaic in the interfacing and usability. Avature gave us many more options to customize our system.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Pro (formerly Ultimate Software UltiPro)

UKG [Pro (formerly Ultimate Software UltiPro)] is much more user friendly that PeopleSoft. At the time I utilized PeopleSoft, the company required and HRIS support person on staff. UKG does not require us to hire a dedicated HR support employee as we are able to obtain the appropriate support from UKG [Pro] when needed. UKG [Pro] is very responsive to their support requests.

Ultipro has great scalability overall. The core functionality of Ultipro allows for easy replication, while also providing room for customization that is often required during acquisitions/additions of new business units. The only drawback in scalability, is that by design, Ultipro requires knowledgeable end users and internal resources to execute. Although Ultipro provides immense support and service to its customers in all organizational phases, without the proper internal development, scalability could be hampered. At the same time, this is what I personally love about the product; the ability to work within a DIY environment during expansion while still having access to subject matter experts when needed.

Return on Investment

Avature ATS

  • Ability to be more efficient in hiring, leading to faster hire times

UKG Pro (formerly Ultimate Software UltiPro)

  • Ultipro made my life a whole lot easier. I was able to generate reports with ease to give to executives during Union negotiations, employee reviews, and vendor census analysis.
  • The cost of the product had an advantage over WorkForce Now. We were paying around $12500 a quarter for an employee base of 2500.
  • I do wish customer service was friendly, and when I called I wouldn't be in que for 20 minutes.
  • I attended one of Ultipro's report writer training at their Headquarters. The instructor was great, and I learned more than I imagined I would. It was well worth the cost.
