What is UKG Integration?

When it comes to optimizing your business operations, improving employee connectivity and engagement, and making the most of your UKG investment, understanding what UKG integrations are, what they can do, and how they can help is critical to your success…

By integrating a Human Resources Management System, like UKG, with other enterprise software, like Workday or Microsoft, companies can link their vital business data and business processes together in one platform, leading to improved consistency, collaboration, and connection across teams and systems.

This way, companies can reap the benefits of seamless workforce automation by combining operational systems with internal communication channels, migrating and storing sensitive corporate data with enhanced security, and connecting team members through an intuitive employee portal and better system connections.

Understanding Key Integrations with UKG Software

While there are quite a few different enterprise resource planning (ERP) and human capital management (HCM) solutions that can be seamlessly integrated with the UKG Pro and Ready suites, a few key integrations stand out among the rest.

Let’s take a closer look at eight of the most common UKG integrations…

1) UKG Active Directory Integration

The Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD) enterprise identity service offers both single sign-on and multi-factor authentication to help keep users (and their most important data) safe. And, through a strategic Microsoft Teams partner, companies can scale connections and improve opportunities for employees through better collaboration between systems, advanced employee engagement surveys, and a proven track record for success.

With integrations between UKG Pro and the Active Directory, companies are enabled to connect their workforce to keep employees productive no matter where they work, provide a seamless user experience across different solutions and areas of their system, and ensure compliance as the company grows and changes.

And, through a bi-directional integration, UKG Pro users are synced to Azure AD, making it easier for managers and company executives to create, update, and terminate users and update, perform user access reviews by role or attribute, and import existing data for each user within the integrated system.

2) UKG NetSuite Integration

With the combination of UKG’s industry-leading technology platform for payroll, HR, and talent management and NetSuite’s advanced cloud solution for financials, ERP, and omnichannel commerce operations, customers can manage their entire business lifecycle in the same place.

By connecting two of the leading software providers in the enterprise technology environment, companies that leverage UKG NetSuite integrations are enabled to improve and optimize their core business processes more efficiently, simplify their business ecosystems, and reduce time and IT costs associated with completing tasks in each system.

UKG NetSuite integrations make it easier for companies to…

  • Move new-hire data from their HCM/Payroll solution (UKG Pro) to their ERP system (NetSuite) for enhanced visibility and immediate access to important information
  • Save time and reduce IT costs typically associated with ERP integrations
  • Provide single sign-on capabilities to improve the availability and accessibility of data for users in any area of the organization
  • Access data from the full suite of applications for better insights, reports, and analysis

3) UKG DocuSign Integration

With the ability to integrate UKG Pro Document Manager with DocuSign, HR teams can leverage a fully embedded electronic signature experience to improve the speed and efficiency of signing and documentation processes and enhance the overall user experience.

UKG Pro DocuSign integrations provide the tools needed for companies to streamline the e-signature process, from the initiation of the signature to the storage of the signed document, making it easier for companies to maintain compliance with documents requiring DocuSign e-signatures and centralize all signed documents in the same place.

This integration also allows users to search for and report on documents that have been completed with DocuSign whenever and wherever they’re needed.

4) UKG LinkedIn Integration

LinkedIn ATS integrations allow companies in any industry to connect their core applicant tracking system, like the one in UKG Pro and Ready solutions, to their LinkedIn channels to streamline the hiring process and keep all recruiting and hiring data connected.

With UKG LinkedIn integration capabilities, users can access, manage, and capture candidate data without switching platforms, attract and qualify the most qualified candidates for the job, and strengthen their internal hiring strategy through better insights and more informed candidate reports.

This way, hiring managers and HR professionals can spend less time navigating each phase of the hiring process on their own and more time building relationships with candidates and new hires.

5) UKG iCIMS Talent Cloud Integration

UKG iCIMS Talent Cloud platform integration supports the entire talent lifecycle by combining UKG Pro Onboarding capabilities with the iCIMS Talent Cloud, making it easier for companies to attract, hire, and retain top-tier talent.

With seamless integration between UKG Pro and iCIMS, users are enabled to…

  • Improve visibility into the candidate experience through real-time analytics and advanced reporting capabilities
  • Enhance connection with hard-to-reach candidates across the entire recruiting, hiring, and onboarding process
  • Increase productivity and efficiency across the hiring process through frictionless data transfers and optimized workflows

6) UKG Salesforce Integration

With the Salesforce Connector for UKG, companies can connect their Salesforce database to their UKG solutions for performance-based compensation, ensuring seamless data transfer between systems without the need for complex spreadsheets or copy/paste functions.

This UKG Salesforce integration makes it easier for companies to automate payroll calculations and streamline global payroll processes across the entire organization to improve efficiency and accuracy in their core payroll and compensation data.

7) UKG Grayscale Integration

UKG integration with Grayscale, a texting and automation platform designed for modern hiring teams, can help customers trigger automated alerts, nudges, and interview reminders to keep them up to date with the over a million candidates who are referred to and apply to jobs in many different industries across the world.

With UKG Grayscale integrations, users are enabled to…

  • Attract higher-quality candidates through SMS campaigns and text-to-apply functionality
  • Improve engagement by texting candidates and automating the recruiting journey
  • Leverage self-service tools to schedule interviews, eliminate candidate ghosting, and improve employee referral services across the candidate lifecycle

8) UKG Achievers Integration

The Achievers Employee Engagement Platform offers a more robust foundation for companies looking to improve employee engagement initiatives through social and rewards-based recognition functionality.

This enables companies to provide access to essential employee data anytime, anywhere, offer real-time updates for users across the employee lifecycle, and improve performance visibility and adoption throughout the entire enterprise.
