Whether you need a single solution to manage all your most important HR operations or are looking to upgrade your existing HCM (human capital management) software or HRIS (human resources information system) solution, UltiPro offers a comprehensive, scalable solution to help you achieve your business goals and keep your employees engaged, productive, and satisfied in the process.
Read on to learn how UltiPro can transform your workforce management operations and where our team of UKG consultants can fit in your organization.
Ultimate Software to UKG
Organizations can improve their employee experience with the Ultipro suite. Ultipro was first released by Ultimate Software in 2017. Recently, Ultimate Software merged with Kronos to form Ultimate Kronos Group (aka UKG) and has now renamed the product UKG Pro.
A person’s first experience with your company is usually when they apply for a job. UltiPro’s candidate-centric design allows you to engage applicants and avoid candidate drop-off immediately. You can even use social media tools to create and post openings, automatically rank candidates, and much more.
Because UltiPro is a unified solution, you only have to enter employee data once — making it easier to set up payroll, access employment history, and manage life events down the road.
But before we go on that journey, let’s cover all the details, features, and benefits of Ultipro so that you can make well-informed choices about your software solutions…
What is UltiPro?
UltiPro is a comprehensive human capital management (HCM) solution and cloud-based HRIS software designed to help companies manage all of their people processes, including Payroll, Time and Attendance, and Talent Management functions, in a single platform.
UltiPro offers a transparent view into a company’s global workforce with dynamics data analytics, better opportunities for employee engagement, improves productivity across business units, and allows your company to make the most of your technical investment, saving valuable time, money, and effort in the long run.

UltiPro provides advanced capabilities that allow customers to improve the efficiency of their payroll processes and increase reporting accuracy to ensure employees are paid correctly and on time throughout each pay period.
3) Time and Attendance Tracking
With UltiPro technology, businesses can deliver intuitive timekeeping capabilities to help employees keep better track of their own hours, monitor absence and leave management capabilities, and ensure employee time is entered and processed correctly.
And, by leveraging the functional Time Management module across business units, managers can improve the productivity of their workforce, making it easier for them to focus on more important things like their people.
UKG Pro also increases efficiency across their timekeeping solutions and provides schedules that are more aligned with employee preferences and availability.
4) Benefits Administration
From navigating complicated insurance policies to managing employee retirement plans, offering personalized wellness initiatives, and everything in between, UltiPro’s robust benefits administration and management capabilities provide the functionality needed to give employees greater control over their own benefits.
With personalized benefits packages and streamlined benefits management processes, employees are empowered to enroll in benefits plans, view their benefits information, and make changes to their coverage whenever and wherever it’s needed.
This way, managers can reduce administrative burdens and risks for error, and employees can rest easy knowing their benefits information is accurate and up-to-date.
5) Performance and Talent Management
UltiPro provides comprehensive talent management capabilities that help organizations find, manage, and retain top-tier talent and keep them engaged from hire to retire.
With easy-to-use tools and advanced metrics, company leaders can assess employee performance, realize internal talent objectives, and keep employees at the top of the priority list to gain insights for better talent management, improve engagement, and encourage more productive operations across the board.
6) Recruiting and Onboarding
UltiPro’s candidate-centric recruiting tools allow existing employees to engage and build relationships with new hires and familiarize them with company technology to boost engagement and productivity from their first interaction.
UKG Pro also provides collaborative onboarding capabilities that make it easier for employees to connect across teams, provide support services to increase employee engagement and improve time-to-value across the entire organization.
7) Business Process Automation
From enabling organizations to simplify core business processes to reducing reliance on IT staff to control and manage operations, eliminating the need for manual data entry, and decreasing wait times for integrations between solutions, UKG Pro offers the functionality needed to facilitate business process automation across all areas of the organization.
UltiPro’s business process automation capabilities enable employees to create custom workflows and forms, set up automatic notifications, eliminate tedious manual tasks, improve collaboration between teams, facilitate integrations between systems, and improve the overall employee experience with greater functionality and support across the board.
8) Business Intelligence
UltiPro provides built-in integrations with business intelligence (BI) software to help users gain greater visibility into their own experience and use key performance and reporting metrics to make more informed decisions.
By leveraging comprehensive reports and predictive analytics, UKG Pro users can gain better insight into their entire workforce, analyze areas of improvement, and make data-driven decisions to improve success in the future.
9) Career Development
When it comes to providing support for employees throughout their entire employee lifecycle and offering the tools needed to facilitate lifelong learning across business units, UKG Pro has the right tools and resources for the job. UltiPro also provides employee surveys in an effort to collect feedback and understand what employees think about work.
With its people-centric approach and modern learning environment, UltiPro simplifies career development initiatives and makes it easier for employees to access on-demand learning content and foster their own professional growth in the long run.
10) Mobile App
Employees need information, and they need it fast. Fortunately, UltiPro provides mobile app functionality that allows employees to access important data and complete tasks whenever and wherever needed. This way, employees can remain engaged and productive in the office, at home, or on the go.
