January 23, 2024, LOWELL, Mass., and WESTON, Fla.

UKG, a leading provider of HR, payroll, workforce management, and culture solutions for all people, today announced it has received three top payroll industry honors from Ventana Research after being named a Leader in its 2023 Buyers Guides for Global Payroll, Domestic Payroll, and Payroll Management.

Ventana Research is an authoritative and respected market research and advisory services firm focused on improving business outcomes through the use of people, processes, information and technology. Its Buyers Guide is a quantified, research-based report that rigorously evaluates technology providers and products in the payroll industry.  UKG placed as a Leader among the 11 vendors assessed for domestic payroll and the 13 vendors assessed for global payroll.

“UKG offers a highly configurable and scalable solution that arms us with the information that we need to run payroll accurately and on time,” said Danica Weston, vice president, HR systems at RPM Living. “It’s also helped make RPM Living a great place to work by significantly streamlining our payroll and HR processes and, in fact, it’s cut our payroll processing time in half. Giving hours of precious time back to our employees not only allows them to focus on higher-impact activity but has also contributed to better work-life balance. No more late-night payroll runs here.”

UKG is the only multi-country payroll provider to deliver a:

  • Single, AI-powered experience that starts with employee scheduling and ends with payroll funding;
  • Perpetual validation engine, no matter where in the world an employee works, to support accuracy and compliance;
  • Hybrid solution deployment that can be live in as little as five weeks, allowing organizations to retain their preferred in-country providers if they choose; and
  • Uniform, “single-pane view” that creates one operational standard around the world, simplifying benchmarks and strengthening in-country provider accountability.

These differentiators are at the center of UKG One View, a first-of-its kind multi-country payroll experience that provides a single view of data across all in-country payroll providers, globally. UKG One View extends the strength of the UKG Pro suite from a longtime U.S. payroll Leader position to now helping multinational organizations manage their entire workforce — from complex scheduling to payday — with the same consistent experience, globally.

“We make the hard stuff simple so that organizations can focus on their people, which is why UKG is committed to modernizing multi-country payroll with our industry-first approach,” said Hugo Sarrazin, chief product and technology officer at UKG. “We want every organization to have the opportunity to be a great place to work. Paying people accurately, transparently, and on time — regardless of geography — is paramount to creating and maintaining trust.”

In addition to being named a Leader by Ventana Research, UKG Pro and UKG Ready have been recognized as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud HCM Suites for 1,000+ Employee Enterprises report; a Leader in the NelsonHall NEAT report for Next Generation HCM Technology in both the Mid/Large Market and the SMB Market Focus; a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Human Capital Management, Q2 2023 report; and received the top overall ranking from Nucleus Research in the HCM Technology Value Matrix 2023.
