Excellent product although greater support and more education at implementation would have ensured my project team would have had a greater understanding of the system, including migration of historical data to ensure its structured in the best way .the system is well suited to large organisations where staff work out of multiple sites and multiple devices including mobile devices.

I have worked with other HR systems and this one just doesn't compare. The ease of use and system availability for administrators is amazing. I worked with UltiPro at a company and left and wasn't using it for two years. When I came back to a company that had it, within a day I felt like a fluent UltiPro user again. Its just that easy to use and the same goes for the end user. We even have Partners that are updating their own direct deposits and enrolling in benefits!

Cons

Kallidus LMS

  • Simpler hosting of e-learning - scorm objects can be slow AICC seems to be the best solution
  • Options to link / interface with other workforce systems
  • Greater flexibility of learning pathways
Darryn Allcorn | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Supervisors have difficulty with the time off approvals. It's not intuitive. Would like to see an interactive time off calendar that allows them to view approved, pending, canceled and rejected requests and also to approve/reject requests from the calendar.
  • Timesheets do not display daily hours in terms of regular and OT. It just lists the total number of hours worked. It would be helpful if it would break it down to regular and OT on the timesheet itself. Makes it easier for supervisors when reviewing and approving timecards.
  • In the Employee Admin/My Employees list, it would be nice if the default view was active employees only. Most of the time that is what people want to see. There are far less times that we try to view termed employees.
  • When employees use the mobile app and try to access their timecards, it diverts them to the web version and they have to log in a second time. It would be nice to have an app that they could access all that information in a single location.

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.

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.

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

Kallidus LMS

Kallidus, delivered all the functions that were required and the potential to add performance and talent through one system were big pluses. the ability to personalise and the simple admin functions have been hugely benefcial
Darryn Allcorn | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Pro

UKG Pro won hands-down. The flexibility, the family feel of the partnership, the customer support model, the reporting, the scalability, and the custom-programming needs of company-specific items were all much better than the competitors. The cost comparison also came in either close to or less than the others so the cost/benefit FAR outweighed the competitors.

Return on Investment

Darryn Allcorn | TrustRadius Reviewer

UKG Pro

  • UKG has many great features that help streamline our processes and help us to better manage our time. We are excited to be adding the case management and file management this year and our hope is this will benefit all departments.
