I think it is one of the most easy to use and learn systems out there (I may be biased since I have only used UKG Pro). It is highly transferable to other companies and easy to apply the knowledge. It is also easy to teach others how to best utilize the system as well.

As stated in other areas, the UKG Pro system is a easy navigated system. From an administrative approach, setting up the system for your companies needs is a user friendly experience. Easy menus that bring you to your desired location. Great SSO features for staff to use and make it easier to log into the system. Also a nice security area by using IP filtering and allowing limited access outside of that range.

Well it helps that I used to be a customer using the product and a former EE of UKG so I know how the product works, the good and the ugly sides of it and what they could do better. Overall, it is a great product but no system is perfect.

The current products we are using have some good feedback and also some areas need to have some improvement. Compensation Management, Performance Review Management, People Analytics, and Dimensions are really good and easy to manage. Payroll processing, standard reports, ATS, and onboarding still have room for improvement. I am wondering if there is a multi-company processing for payroll, that will be a cost/time saver for the payroll team.

UKG Pro is very user-friendly in general. Most employees find self-service easy to use. Managers who started to use manager self-service also commented on how easy it is. However, it has not been the best from the Admin side, the way the approval path is set up can be limited, we don't have a way to cascade the approval upwards.

Our employees have advised that they like the platform and we're hoping for increased engagement as opposed to the previous vendor. The employees are aware of some of the features and think Model my pay is one of the best features and use it on a regular basis.

It could be because I'm still fairly new to the system itself, but I gave it an 8 because while I am understanding of the potential UKG can do for our organization it can be difficult to utilize for new users without the proper training. That being said, I am excited to keep building experience with this system and am looking forward to the progress.

I think, in general, UKG Pro is very user-friendly. They offer a lot of useful options, including a very robust app for both iPhone and Android. Most employees have no problem accessing their time entry, their leave requests, and their payment information. And the administration of most parts of the system is very straightforward.

I give this high rating because It's really easy to use and figure out how it works. In my opinion, it is more organized on the web than the app (smartphone), but still, the software is easy to get around and find what you're looking for. A very user-friendly product that upgrades continually for the better.

I was impressed from the beginning of our implementation to the actual rollout with how hard the UKG team worked to have perfection. I am now excited that we are adding the new scheduling feature that will bring our program to the next level for both our managers and employees. I love the fact the UKG is always striving to be the best and most innovative.

Once we were able to get on the same page with the product and all that it offered, it made it so much easier to continue adding each of the other modules that we wanted to use and needed to use. The data flow is so much easier once you've gotten in and are using it as you grow within it.

Overall it has a pretty good user face and makes it easy to track candidates as well as current/previous employees. There are also a lot of useful features in UKG for the HR side - including benefits/leaves/payroll, etc. Having multiple different gateways inside of UKG itself is useful because they all talk to each other, which makes it easy to input and move information.

It's really easy to use and figure out how all the different functions are ingratiated together for users to help with the workflow; many different functions can all be easily accessed as well. I have found that I understand our own processes much better when using UKG because of how it appears within the system.
