CD2 Learning

CD2 Learning is a great fit for any organization wanting to help develop online training resources as well as online assessment and data analytics. CD2 Learning would not be a great fit for an organization wanting to do a lot of custom development to create a platform from scratch.

I feel UKG Ready is for a larger business that wants the customization and is ever-changing. There are many reports and options that will help a larger business plus numbers, etc.. I honestly feel like smaller business, 25 or less, really wouldn't benefits much from this software.

Pros

CD2 Learning

  • The ability to restrict and customise the security preferences to ensure the system remains standardised.
  • The phone customer support is good because you can get through to someone when it is really urgent.
  • A lot of the interface is customisable as well, so you can change the look and feel yourself.

UKG Ready

  • Streamlines the process between HR and payroll. Each team can quickly see and share information.
  • Our entire hospital team can use the system and it's easy to provide trouble shooting support to our teams.
  • Appearance -The system is easy to use and attractive for users.
  • The payroll process specifically is very well laid out.
  • Communication! UKG has really stepped up on communication and training especially around tax related deadlines.

Cons

CD2 Learning

  • There are times we wish CD2 Learning had additional resources to help address any issues that pop up within our platform in a more timely manner.
  • CD2 Learning does not do a lot of custom development for each client. There are times we wish we could more easily alter aspects of the CD2 Learning platform to better fit our needs.
  • CD2 Learning works in "sprints". Therefore, if an issue does not get included in the sprint, it can take some time before it is addressed.
Brian Davidson | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready

  • Customer support. I do not like the idea of not being able to call someone with a quick question without adding a case. Waiting for someone to call you back is not helpful at all. Chat line is mostly off-line
  • SMA is relatively new to Kronos's Platform. I really felt like we were not fully trained on the system. We were not able to train our staff well either. I would really like to see short clip videos that we are able to share with new employees. I don't have time to read long documents which I find is a lot of what is on the training portal.

We plan to renew our support and use of UKG Ready each year unless it becomes unavailable or the district seeks another vendor. As of now, there are no plans to changes vendors. The district staff is now familiar with using UKG. Another vendor will need to meet the same expectations we have come to enjoy with using UKG

Somethings are very easy to do, however somethings are very clunky. For many things such as time change requests and approvals it would be nice to see the timesheet as you are making the request rather than having to remember what was on there. It does require a general technical base that some of our bus and custodial staff do not have.

The system seems very stable. Being hosted in the cloud, we are vulnerable to internet speeds and busy times. The system has been down a couple times over the 3 months we have been live, but Kronos resolved the issues very quickly. To have access from a desktop, tablet, time clock, or phone app is one of the best features....users have almost NO REASON they can't clock in.

We were always told that Kronos was the best, but there are reports that we got out of ADP and other payroll providers that we cannot get out of Kronos. One example is a report of Productive/Non-productive hours by department. We also need the dollar amount associated with the hours. This is information that is required on our cost report and we were told that that report is unavailable. It is very frustrating when I can't get what I need.

The support received varies. In most instances, I have been contacted same day by support to get the issue resolved, but there was one instance where I was not contacted for over a week and then when I was finally contacted, the assistance received was lacking.

Our in-person training was a hybrid. Live online training with an instructor. They were very knowledgeable of the product & the area they were training on. I asked several specific questions and if they didn't know the answer immediately they followed up after class.

Lots & lots of training available. Timing was wrong for our organization. We had lengthy down time in the beginning while the implementation consultant setup our system. We did online training then. Difficult to train on a generic system setup that isn't your industry and hard to understand what you are learning how to do w/o actually being in your system. Online training was well documented and the instructors were very knowledgeable.

Make sure the people who are doing the build have extensive knowledge on employment law and asking the right questions. I would bet that the people who helped with our builds did not read any of our employment contracts or ordinances; and when I asked questions about how other companies handled certain basic dictates from federal employment laws, they didn't have any idea what FMLA, FLSA, etc were.

Alternatives Considered

CD2 Learning

Before going with CD2 Learning, we looked at using Cornerstone for our services. We found Cornerstone was considerably more expensive than CD2 Learning. Additionally, we were always very impressed with the people at CD2 Learning, which continues to be a great strength for them. Their people are wonderfully caring, supportive, and collaborative.

UKG Ready

Kronos definitely beats out the competition in terms of user-friendly features and simple "it works" functionality. We tried using several other payroll suites including Paychex and found they were lacking in a number of areas especially in terms of user interface. Our employees literally groan when they remember using these older systems, they absolutely love Kronos in comparison.

Thus far we are able to add as many users as necessary, implement 3 different bargaining units, 5 different types of user groups. Very flexible.

Return on Investment

CD2 Learning

  • Better trained people, more efficient
  • Less time to assign training, cost efficient
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Ready

  • Managers have easy access to people/hours/earnings to better manage budgets - once we implement Scheduler, we'll take it to the next level.
  • Managers and employees can self-serve in ways not possible before - we eliminated 95% of paper processes during our implementation.
