UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group), a leading global provider of human capital management (HCM), payroll, HR Service Delivery (HRSD), and workforce management solutions, announced new awards and accolades for delivering excellence in payroll from the American Payroll Association and Global Payroll Management Institute, Constellation Research, and NelsonHall.

“Without a doubt, Pro is the best payroll engine available,” said Trudy Gokey, director of benefits and HRIS at Rosen’s Diversified Inc, which utilizes UKG to manage its 5,000 people. “Now, our payroll is accurate, our business units can keep their own specific compensation strategies, and our teams can generate a range of business reports on one business unit or on the company as a whole.”

“My UKG account team is working to find synergies and to maximize what the solution can do,” said Kathryn Poslunsy, HR systems administration at Biltmore, which utilizes UKG. “I have found everyone on my support team to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful.”

Based on its ability to help people understand and manage their paychecks, enable payroll departments to efficiently manage the payroll cycle, and help organizations take advantage of cloud payroll technologies, UKG has been named to the Constellation Research ShortList for Payroll for North American SMBs.
