UKG Ready is well suited for clients who are looking to easily report on their payroll. In addition, when a client needs the full suite of services it works well since it's a single database.

UKG Ready is well suited for multi-location companies that are in jurisdictions as it provides a great platform for company-wide communication while also still having very clear options for location-based customizations that are required legally. I would say that it's been extremely effective for us as a company that has grown from ~400 employees when we implemented to over 500 in the past year, and it's been instrumental in giving us the ability to grow. I think UKG Ready is not well suited for small companies that have fewer than 50 employees due to the high PEPM cost.

I feel that the overall user experience was clunky enough that most of our staff didn't use UKG Ready beyond what they absolutely had to. More often than not from what I've experienced, users would ask a leader or someone else to do it for them. While this is obviously an opportunity for coaching, it speaks to the software and ease of use as our users spanned from teenagers to advanced workers.

Some features are good but the recruitment module doesn't flow as easily as it should. The workflow is clumsy and requires extra steps...it doesn't automatically move a candidate through the workflow and it needs to be manually done in multiple places, making it more challenging for both the recruiter and hiring manager. If this was more automated, it would be so much easier.

This is hard to answer; we went live March 2021 and I believe our setup needs to be reviewed. We have a consultant coming to see us soon to help. I know the difficulties we are having should not be. I am excited and encouraged to get this fixed after the networking at UKGworks. :)

UKG Ready is a strong contender for [companies] under 750 or so team members with not many security profiles. Security Profiles drive a lot of who can see what and when you start having many security profiles, it becomes cumbersome to update everything and keep access where it needs to be.

I have used many different HRIS systems and UKG Ready is a fairly robust tool. What sets UKG apart for us is their core values align with our own. We love their employee culture and know that trickles down to how we are supported as users of their software. We also appreciate the constant upgrade and really taking user feedback into account.

I would, ultimately, highly recommend UKG Ready to a colleague because it has tremendously helped us streamline some of our processes. It can help us connect and communicate with employees better, provide an easier experience for managers, and help us analyze data about our labor and predict what changes we should implement to better align [with] our strategies.

UKG Ready has incredible reporting abilities. We always use it to run live reports that are easily customizable, shareable, and editable. One thing I'd love to see though, is the ability to pull historical data more easily.

It's very user-friendly for the employee level. In my opinion, it is not user-friendly for the end-user, and, for the company administrator, the new UI is more time consuming and frustrating to use than before.

I find the actual system and ideas to be useful, but there always seems to be something missing. Often, some of the 'ideas' presented within the community are basics that should be initially included with the product. It can take a while for ideas to be implemented.

Having employee self-service functionality as well as account access has really improved transparency for our payroll department as well as reduced the amount of questions payroll staff are asked about employee leave balances, etc. Additionally, having the ability to import accrual balance updates and time entries has made us more efficient as opposed to our previous manual entry process.

UKG Ready involves a great amount of customization, however, with time, it is easier to navigate and understand how the system works and the setup becomes easier within each area. We have been able to better track timekeeping and pay since transitioning to UKG Ready.

UKG Ready definitely checks off many boxes for us and allows us to streamline our processes, however, we would like some more functionality in some areas of Scheduler and Performance. UKG Ready frequently refers us to their community to add ideas, but if the idea does not get enough votes, it does not go anywhere. We have had an idea that has been sitting under consideration for 3 years.

We switched from central to UKG Ready and it has been a fresh breath of air; there is so much more we can now do in UKG Ready that we did not know that we were being limited by in central. The updated and fresh look is just the start, but I also love that they are always available to take questions and help if you do not know how something works in the system.

UKG Ready is easily accessible - I love that it's web based. No need to use the VPN network. This really helps managers when they are on vacation, but need to do work. It's also helpful for employees to have a streamlined view between the desktop at work and at home. The system in my opinion is pretty user friendly. I love the audit trails - it really helps you keep track of possible errors and find information that may have accidentally been deleted.

The system is great if you need to automatically assign different onboarding packages. We have to segment our workforce on several levels and the cost centers allow us to do this easily. Reporting is very user-friendly so an HR admin can do a lot in the system without needing to have IT coding experience like other HRISs. This system is good for a standard client company that is not super cutting-edge. A cutting-edge company would not be satisfied with the outdated system functionality as updates to the system are mostly [aesthetic] and do not address a lot of California compliance ideas that have been submitted in the community for years.
