"The solution's UI is good. Also, it is very easy to use.""I have found the most valuable feature to be business intelligence and Cognos reporting.""It is much easier to use and the customer service is better than our previous solution.""It enables us to manage the system ourselves. We don't need an additional team to do a lot of maintenance and add the things that we want.""UKG allows us to customize our home screen so that we can easily monitor important items on a daily basis.""I like UKG's integration.""The most valuable feature is being able to get time management reports which break out reclassified jobs and departments to separate areas of the company. This allows for better tracking of hours spent in certain jobs and where more hours may be needed.""The fact that I can see the whole HR information in a single point is valuable. There is a unified view of everything, which is good. Previously, we had many different systems for each part of the information. Now, it is all centralized. It is very good."

More UKG Pros →

"training and performance could be improved.""The HR portal, training model, and development career model could all use improvement. Stability and scalability should be improved as well.""Meta4 could improve by allowing users to manage things by themself.""The solution is a little bit slow.""The HR portal, training model, and the development career model all need improvement.""I would like to have recruitment and acquisition features added to this solution.""In future releases, it would be useful to see reporting lines of all the team members in our business to understand who reports to whom.""The user interface could be improved and the maintenance is complex when it comes to upgrades."

More Cegid Cons →

"UKG could be a little more flexible in some areas.""One area where UKG could improve is in its ability to understand its own competency and then work hard to improve it.""The solution could improve by simplifying it even more core reports, such as more sample reports, more generic reports that you can edit and improve on yourself.""I would like to see more functionality in the next release to be able to get hours and dollars per calendar month rather than just by payroll in the Business Intelligence reports.""The navigation on the screen could be better. Sometimes, I have to dig a little bit deep to find what I need. Everything is there. It just needs to be a little bit smoother.""Reporting is always a hurdle for any user just because it is so extensive. They provide a lot of out-of-the-box reports, but it is something that you always need to work on because you need more advanced writing of reports.""I would like the capability to use UKG as a single platform without the need to alternate between systems.""The solution could use better reporting with standard reports. We use the Cognos platform in BI for a lot of our reporting. However, they need to have more robust standard reporting available to their user base."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Meta4 requires annual maintenance that needs to be paid for."
  • "From a cost perspective, I think this is a well-balanced option."
  • More Cegid Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "I wasn't involved in the pricing part. I'm a user, and I believe it is based on the user count. One thing that is nice about Ultimate is that you can learn how to use the system without additional fees. The learning aspect is the life of a product, and the training was a huge reason why we went with Ultimate. We did have some integration costs. They were a part of the implementation because of the integrations to other systems that we included in our implementation."
  • "While I am unsure of the licensing cost itself, the total cost of implementation and licensing for a company with over 5000 employees would be around 6,00,000. So, there are additional costs beyond licensing."
