UKG Payroll by Payroll Metrics Now Available for New Zealand Organisations

June 21, 2021, SYDNEY, Aus.

UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group), a leading global provider of HCM, payroll, and workforce management solutions, today announced the deployment of UKG Payroll by Payroll Metrics for UKG Dimensions and UKG Ready customers in New Zealand.

With deep knowledge and expertise in one of the world’s most complex labour markets, organisations of all sizes operating in New Zealand can now benefit from the partnership between UKG — one of the largest cloud companies in the world — and Payroll Metrics, a leading enterprise-level payroll software, which builds on nearly four decades of combined experience in regional workforce management, HCM, and payroll technology.

UKG Payroll by Payroll Metrics is a secure, cloud-native application built to accommodate the delivery of the most recent workforce management updates to minimise compliance risk and improve payroll accuracy, taking into consideration the evolving regional regulatory environment with unique complexities such as the Holidays Act.

“Providing full-suite solutions complete with complex payroll expertise to the region is another way UKG is delivering on its brand promise, ‘Our purpose is people,’” said Charlie DeWitt, managing director, ANZSEA, at UKG. “Our goal is to simplify payroll processes, eliminate errors, and provide a best-in-class employee experience for our customers that aligns with business operations and needs. We are confident we will see great success in New Zealand as we help to consolidate and streamline payroll systems.”

The addition of UKG Payroll by Payroll Metrics for UKG Dimensions and UKG Ready customers in New Zealand builds upon the success amongst small and medium enterprise customers announced in July 2019 and large enterprise customers announced in December 2020 — now providing UKG customers with an unmatched, full-suite solution of workforce management, HCM, and payroll services.

“We’re thrilled to expand our partnership with UKG to better serve organisations in New Zealand,” said Greg McManus, founder of Payroll Metrics. “We believe employers should have payroll software that uses the best-practice information security techniques and that every pay office needs to be a centre of excellence, delivering great customer service, effectively engaging with their organisation, and producing valuable information from employee and payroll data. To do so, they need a solution that is compliant and capable of handling local legislation. We’re delivering on that belief to all UKG customers in Australia, and now New Zealand, and look forward to a bright future together.”

In addition, customers will enjoy the convenience of implementation, training, and support of UKG Payroll by Payroll Metrics delivered by industry experts to further deliver on the promise of in-region industry knowledge and service.
