Because the program is widely adopted, it is very helpful in that the training programs we have developed can be deployed at new locations. It is also helpful for different departments.

UKG is a beast. I feel like it is meant for organizations with 1000 employees or more instead of a few hundred. SmartLinx Solutions is a bit more down-to-earth.
