  • Currently, we have found a positive impact in all that time using UKG Ready and we are not using multiple spreadsheets to track extra time.
  • We need to clean up the payroll export file that is being generated from our timesheet processing. It is currently pulling data that we're having to manipulate and manually check.

  • The most positive is that we can manage most of the HR activities from within one system. It's our one-stop-shop (except for recruiting).
  • Because we have had it for some time, employees are familiar with it. And although the look has changed, the functionalities have remained helpful.
  • We are far more productive in labor transfers than we have been in the past because of sunshine systems, an organization that has helped us track labor down to the product.
  • With the EverythingBenefits partnership, our information is easily transferred to our carriers with very little manual intervention - this has saved us so much time.

  • Onboarding customizations are critical to our services. We cannot operate without custom OB packages.
  • We are able to integrate data relatively easily between our custom portal and UKG Ready, saving a lot of time and providing a quicker service to our clients.
  • We cannot process payroll without several manual steps as we are in staffing and can't be locked down to one pay period only.
  • The UI is not super user-friendly for an employee level, so we do waste a lot of our time troubleshooting the system.
