Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

UKG has exceeded all expectations, and we selected UKG Ready because of the robust growth opportunities it provided to our company in terms of improving efficiency and processes. Additionally, we were excited about UKG's different support model that has been proven to be extremely effective despite the scary concept of not having someone assigned to our account. The specialized support is something that no other company offered.

I'm not overly familiar with alternatives to UKG Ready but can only speak to my experience WITHIN UKG Ready. Overall it's a clunky experience and users don't seem to like it. Permissions are also clunky but do work once they're set up. Submitting help tickets is slow and painful. Getting a response from a representative is sometimes very slow. API integration was very difficult for us with our LMS and a peer at another company experienced the same struggle.

The updates have helped with several of the processes. The layout of the system seems better, there have been improvements to the recruitment module and how things flow in the system. Posting has become easier than it was in the past.

Workforce Central was our first online time and labor maintenance system. We used it for about 10 years and though it worked, it was far too complicated for what we needed, and we overcomplicated the setup of it over the years to a degree that it was not functional. UKG Ready's "Time for School" package was set up for school districts and had built-in pieces that adhered to the best practices we needed.

UKG Ready is very user-friendly and operates within a seamless environment. Having the mobile ability takes it to the next level, offering access virtually anywhere, at any time. The support provided by UKG is world-class and a model so many more companies could model to provide a much better experience.

UKG Ready has similar functionality to others in the full suite HRIS space and what sets them apart is their customer service model, company values, and culture. The sales process was appropriate and enjoyable. They also provide a lot of different thank you's to their customers throughout the year. We love the community that is available to submit ideas and research as well.

We previously used CPSI. It was an incredibly outdated system with little information for our employees. It was definitely a major upgrade from this system. We previously used 2+ systems for our HR and payroll management. UKG was the only product we really dug into after leaving CPSI. It's been a great update.

I reviewed over 11 similar platforms and picked UKG Ready 2x at different companies due to 2 factors - 1) There is a full suite available. Some platforms only offer benefits or HR and not payroll. This impacts our employee experience as well as makes it more difficult to manage. 2) The pricing of the modules is more customizable. Other platforms required us to pay for services we would not use and the cost was significantly higher. UKG Ready allows us to not pick performance management, leave, or recruiting. The cost for the HR module does include some services we don't use, but the cost is still reasonable compared to other competitors' HR modules.

Our organization was a long-time user of UKG Telestaff and we found that the ADT payroll services did not integrate easily for payroll processing and management. The success we experienced with UKG Telestaff (formerly Kronos) made the decision easy to continue with their products, like UKG Ready, when our organization separated from local government and became a stand-alone entity. UKG Ready's integration did not come without issues by any means, however, the build and integration teams (on both sides) were able to cooperate and work through all the problems encountered.

UKG Ready is a lot more comprehensive than TalentReef. UKG Ready is an all-in-one system whereas, with TalentReef, we had to use 3rd party vendors for time & attendance, and payroll. TalentReef was a little bit easier to navigate but that was simply because the system wasn't as comprehensive. I believe our employees like UKG Ready better because they are notified anytime there is something in the system that concerns them.

Not allowing me to list Ultimate Software (most likely due to the merger), but there is a comparison to be had. UKG Ready HR management is a great product and stacks up above Paylocity. I would say it is similar to Ultimate software (not listed as I assume that you are considering them part of Kronos, except they had different features). The time & attendance is better than all. The Payroll is not as good as either. Mainly for the negative reasons previously stated. It could be better if not for some of the stringent rules at the very end of the process. It does integrate better from attendance and labor distribution and reporting aspects, but actual payroll processing is lacking.

HRMS was very old and limited in what it could do. We chose Kronos to get better reports and loved the idea of a user portal. Paycor was a product we almost chose but it lacked the payroll that we desired. Their HR portion looked very good though. We wanted an all-around good solution and chose UKG Ready. It’s a good product and I really enjoy the fact that they actually listen to our feedback in their releases.
