UKG Surpasses 250 Technology and Services Partners, Launches Expanded UKG Marketplace
UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group), a leading global provider of HCM, payroll, HR service delivery, and workforce management solutions, has surpassed 250 technology and services partners helping organizations worldwide deliver more engaging and connected workplace experiences. With the recent launch of UKG Marketplace, UKG has created one of the largest and most collaborative global partner ecosystems wholly focused on the HCM industry.
“UKG provides a platform that is open, flexible, and has the ability to integrate multiple technologies to create a full end-to-end solution,” said Steve Wilson, executive director of strategy and operations at MarketSource, whose proprietary Representative Engagement Platform (REPfirst™) is built on the UKG platform with UKG partners and was awarded Gold in the 2020 Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards. “This was key to the success of the REPfirst™ project as UKG pulls the ecosystem together; giving us the flexibility to thrive in the fast-paced retail environment.”
UKG’s technology partners collaborate with UKG to create custom workplace software applications, solution extensions, and integrations and connectors to help enhance the lifework journey through a more connected work experience. By focusing on seamless experiences between applications, organizations can drive user adoption, driving performance while maximizing the value of their UKG investment.
Strategic Collaborations Expand Native Extensibility of UKG Solutions
UKG is complementing its native platforms by launching strategic collaborations with integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) providers Cloud Elements (recently acquired by UiPath) and Workato. These collaborations will provide HR and IT teams with access to thousands of additional pre-built connectors between UKG Pro (formerly UltiPro) and critical business systems within and outside of HR to further reduce cost and complexity, automate administrative tasks, and enhance the visibility of people data.
UKG Further Simplifies Post Acute Care Operations
Committed to accelerating innovations for post-acute care providers, UKG has introduced the UKG-built PointClickCare Census Import. This integration connects PointClickCare with UKG Dimensions (formerly Workforce Dimensions from Kronos) to share HIPAA-compliant resident census data by organization, facility, and room to drive even more accurate volume-based scheduling. For long-term post-acute care facilities, technology partner Accushield’s health screening kiosk can provide contactless sign-in and recordkeeping for body temperature and health screenings for UKG Dimensions and UKG Ready (formerly Kronos Workforce Ready).
With nearly 200 solution extensions for UKG Pro, UKG Ready, or UKG Dimensions in the UKG Marketplace, partner applications introduced in 2021 are helping organizations:
- Focus on safety during COVID-19 with eClear and ePass by eConnect1;
