    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.

    Workday human capital management is well suited for organizations to manage their employee records. It is also well suited for managing the employee's salary details, also the details of past salary changes, promotions, etc. It has options to keep track of employees' goals for the year, where they can keep track of their progress, and also managers can view the progress or share feedback. This is very helpful for tracking career progress and providing feedback. Other options, like training assigned to employees, can also be seen in Workday; users will get alerts by email for any new assignments or due assignments, etc.

    Pros

    UKG

    • rule analysis- the rule analysis in this product is much cleaner and easy to follow compared to WFC
    • The level of granularity on FAPs is very helpful for configuring access compared to other platforms
    • UI is very easy to follow and intuitive

    Workday

    • Groups employees in management hierarchies and creates Org Charts that are easy to navigate and allow for visualizing management chains regardless of employee locations
    • Intuitive and easy to use. The Workday search functionality works very much like Google; one can search for anything that they have access to in the database and drill down into the various details. All information is connected through hyperlinks and users can easily keep digging into the details for as far as their security access would take them.
    • Tasks such as to do, review or approve items are sent to the user's Workday Inbox, very much resembling email. Notifications about outstanding "to do" items are also sent to each the user's work email address on a daily basis.

    Cons

    UKG

    • You got to have a solution for employees with multiple jobs
    • Need to allow customers to easily access your integration technology
    • Your business structure is too restrictive and making the application far less flexible
    • Your professional service team needs a lot of improvement, especially in the execution part
    • Need to have a proven and working interface for business structure automation.

    • The web interface is awful
    • Terrible, terrible, UI. No modern features like auto-save. I can't count the times I have lost work.
    • Their UX team (if it even exists) must be aliens, because I can't see how humans would have come up with the UI conventions they have.
    • Who creates a website application where you can't open stuff in multiple browser windows and tabs easily?

        It is work to make one system the source of truth for our data, but now that it is done, there is less work involved in staying on this path. This means for us that maintaining and/or implementing new modules like performance, finance, talent, etc. is simple. It's a no-brainer

        UKG

        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.

If a report is taking long to run, the report can run in the background and you can go about your business.

        • Kronos Workforce Dimensions a new product, and it has a lot of scope for improvement, with future releases. One of the best tools to perform time tracking.
        • Their support team is very knowledgeable, and their SLA's are pretty tight. Any query raised would be addressed in a few hours.
        • Timeclock configuration can be complicated; however, their support team knows the processes and guidelines.

        Workday is still learning about the needs of higher education. I have seen rapid improvement in support and knowledge over the last year so am confident this will continue to improve. Overall however, I have found the Support Team to be extremely responsive and Workday offers the advantage of having support across several timezones so that we never wait more than a few hours for a response.

        It was implemented before my joining the company. At my last company, we used Workday professional services.

        Based upon my experience at my last company, I would rate the implementation experience an 8/10. There are different ways to set things up and we had different people telling us different things. It set us back a couple of times.

        Regarding configuration advice, we could set things up where every manager has supervisory organizations, or have it financially based i.e. aligned to cost center/department. We chose the individual manager path and I think we should have chosen a department route. Going down the individual manager path, to maintain the information, we have to inactivate a supervisory org whenever a manager changes/leaves.

        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.

        Return on Investment

        UKG

        • 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.

        • Positive ROI, we were one of the first organizations that went with Workday HCM, and we received numerous discounts. Cloud systems are the way to go and we feel the system is stable for our growing work force.
        • The user conferences have been helpful to network and learn more deepness in the modules and functionality.
        • Right off the bat, our implementation costs were lower than budgeted and we had less 'billing' surprises.
