Kansas State University Saves $100,000 in Overtime with UKG

Automated processes and real-time workforce data deliver efficiencies and savings.

Paper-based workforce management processes devoured staff time at Kansas State University’s Administrative Support Center. Discover how the center has used its UKG™ solution to access real-time workforce data and realize significant overtime and payroll time savings.

Responsible for processing payroll and administering leave for 1,400 employees across 67 departments, which applied pay rules differently, HR/payroll staff at Kansas State’s Administrative Support Center experienced time-consuming challenges.

After implementing a UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group) workforce management solution, the Administrative Support Center at the university has seen multiple benefits:

  • Payroll processing time cut 78% across all departments and errors cut 30% to 40%
  • The facilities department alone realized $100,000 in overtime savings in the first year
  • Student employees working multiple jobs can easily track their time by position

“We had six people working 30 hours every two-week pay period handling paper processes. Now [with UKG] we have one FTE working 40 hours every pay period. We’ve also decreased the mistakes made with manual processes by 30 to 40%. We’re confident we’re paying people accurately and consistently.”
