For a very small business or a freelancer this is an excellent billing/invoicing system. Easy to get set up and configured quickly so you can get paid online quickly. It works very well for what it is intended. But for a growing small business it doesn't have the more complex accounting/bookkeeping features you might need. There is some limitation to customization as well.

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

Hiveage

  • Setting up to receive online payments from a number of payment processors was quick and easy, and the range of processors was excellent.
  • Invoicing and recurring invoicing were easy and straightforward to use, and clients liked it as well.
  • The entire system is user-friendly and very easy to use for anyone. It has all the basics you need for billing/invoicing for a small business and is especially ideal for freelancers.
Jen Garfinkel-Canseco | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Hiveage

  • Mobile app still needed some work, but they were going in the right direction.
  • Would like to see them add more accounting/bookkeeping functions.
  • Preferred the old pricing structure vs the current one.
Jen Garfinkel-Canseco | 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

Hiveage

Hiveage and FreshBooks are actually pretty comparable. I tested both before choosing Hiveage. At the time that I chose Hiveage, the reason for choosing it was that the pricing was cheaper with their old pricing structure (you could select what features you did and didn't need as "modules" and just pay for what you used). The pricing is now comparable and both offer the same features, and similar ease-of-use.
Jen Garfinkel-Canseco | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Hiveage

  • Hiveage was perfect for my small business when I was smaller, and it worked well to get invoices paid online from clients quickly and easily.
  • The invoices were professional-looking, and the ease of use to make payments made clients happy.
  • Keeping track of time for billing to specific projects was advantageous as well.
Jen Garfinkel-Canseco | 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.
