UKG value not ideal

  • User/employee side it was easy to use.
  • We enjoyed the messaging/SMS capabilities.
  • Support was lacking.
  • Admin side was not as user friendly.
  • Reporting is complicated and not easy to access.
  • Time management and Payroll/Employee data were separate so the 2 sides didn't talk to one another very well (ie, reports were harder to run, payroll errors, lots of extra data entry on "both sides").
  • Very expensive for what you get.
  • Communication with Support and Account Managers was poor.
  • Lots of missing functionality- modules didn't flow or talk to each other.

  • Accessibility (cloud based)
  • Intuitive menus
  • Great, easy to use mobile app
  • Responsive customer support
  • Entering hours on the mobile app is sometimes glitchy
  • Browser experience could be improved upon
  • Pricing for long-time customers could be better (5% annual increases is not competitive!)

  • Payroll
  • Year-End Forms
  • User Self Service
  • Time management
  • Finding the correct fields you need for the reports is difficult.
  • Using as a manager to approve TAFW requests is not easy as you have to hunt for them.
  • Figuring out how to merge or link reports is even more difficult than working with them.
  • New users complain that when they try something incorrectly/inadvertently, the programs do not give helpful information about the issue and the state of the attempt.
  • The layout seems to be a conglomeration of separate modules crammed together rather than flowing to each other.

  • Connecting tools to enhance the use of each. ie goal setting and self-assessments.
  • Time keeping is super easy for employees and managers.
  • It's super easy to navigate all the many tools UKG has.
  • It would be nice to construct your own personal drop down menu for the tools that an individual uses most.

  • It provides a platform for employees to easily enroll in benefits during the annual enrollment period.
  • It allows employees to complete their personal development plans and submit those to supervisors for approval.
  • It provides employees with current compensation information, including W2s when available for the current tax year.
  • The PTO plans section of UKG is not very intuitive when it comes to understanding how many hours of PTO an employee has left for the year.
  • Employees have to log in to a different system in order to submit a PTO request, so it appears UKG [Pro] does not handle that functionality.
  • There are a lot of menus to sift through, making it difficult to find information sometimes.

  • Reporting in Business Intelligence is friendly
  • Transmission of payroll through gateway is seemless
  • Fully integrated system is a plus
  • Payment Services - NTR is non existent and cases not managed in a timely manner
  • Time Management - updates cause issues with previously configure items
  • Mobile App - Not as fluid as it should be for users

  • Bring back some of the old navigation functionality, i.e being able to navigate to sub-pages without having to start from the beginning. Navigating through favorites should have the same functionality as navigating from the menu.
  • The better transition of ALM. Case maintenance became very slow, had to start escalating for them to get attention.
  • Maybe this already happens, but give some companies the opportunity to review releases and provide feedback.

  • Streamline payroll and tax payments
  • BI reports and analytics - via scheduled delivery
  • Consolidating all employee data on a user-friendly platform for easy navigation and administration
  • Products are holistic, and all geared towards helping HR and companies manage their teams and team members
  • Include SSO links in notification emails for users that work in the field that use the mobile app, as well as the standard links that route back to the desktop. e.g. PTO request approvals, job requisition approvals, people assist notifications
  • Service requests in Ultimate Community have a serious lag. Provide more resources to get projects completed in a more timely manner. Most steps are stalled in our internal projects that require data feeds, UDES, or interface builds waiting for a UKG resource assignment.

  • Ease of use
  • Availability of learning tools
  • Constant improvement, forward thinking on what the customer will need
  • 1095 reporting. Last year we had to run all states instead of being able to run just CA
  • BI has become more user friendly, I'd like to use more of the canned reports, but they don't always seem to be accurate
  • I've had cases where I've asked someone to call me to resolve because it would only take a few minutes. The cases tend to go back and forth due to miscommunication and take much longer to resolve than they should.

  • Quicker time to assign case managers on new projects- adding new business to existing or new payroll.
  • Generating in advance an employee's salary prior to their last day in case payroll hasn't begun yet.
  • Can we keep the Classic view the UKG? The classic view is way better and easy to navigate.

  • Training and a knowledge base is accessible to customers
  • Provides a robust reporting tool (Cognos)
  • Payroll processing runs smoothly
  • Continually looks to improve the system taking customer feedback to enhance the tools
  • Collaborations with partners during implementation are needed. UKG Pro support should attend status meetings.
  • The ability to approve time off requests directly from emails.
  • Provide Administrators with proxy access to log in as users. This would assist in troubleshooting issues and reduce cases logged.
  • Standard reports should have an output option in a database format, ie. CSV. Currently, if the output is basically pasted as the PDF format in an excel file which is not sufficient for sorting, filtering, pivots, etc.
  • All support cases should be assigned within 12 hours.
  • UKG Benefits needs improvement to be more user friendly and more like a Benefits Administration system.
