HotSchedules and Fourth
Hot Schedules/Labour Productivity has been very useful in helping with sales forecasting, utilizing past data combined with weather and national events; however its allocation of staffing is very generic across a large brand, so not much scope for the software to 'learn' what works well for individual sites - e.g. where one restaurant may need 2 people to cover their peak, another may need 4, to account for things like prep, restaurant layout, etc.

UKG Dimensions will work well with a company size of [fewer] than 10,000 employees. Once you hit over 10K, you start to notice that batch jobs will time out, clocks will perform slower or become unresponsive requiring manual restarts and the employee demographic will take hours to complete. Will the vendor has on their roadmap to increase the performance of the product, it is not at that point.

UKG Dimensions is very user-friendly from an employee and supervisor standpoint. It is very robust on an admin level and can get complicated; however, you can do so many things with it that is outweighs the complexity. The security for UKG Dimensions needs to be revamped however. It is very cumbersome and not user-friendly.

UKG Dimensions provides an enterprise-wide integrated suite for timekeeping, staff scheduling, and clocks. We were an existing Workforce Central customer for timekeeping only and were interested in providing holistic experience between staff scheduling and timekeeping. In addition, [UKG] Dimensions established a great foundation for transitioning our organization from departmental focused scheduling solutions to enterprise.

  • It is neutral. We enjoy having somewhat of a seamless system between HR, PR, and timekeeping.
  • When a person uses the Reset Password link, the system sends the user an email with a link to set their password. Then when the person logs in with their new password, the system forces the user to change their password a second time. This second password change is unnecessary and creates confusion.
