How Much Does UKG Cost?

UKG charges companies on an quarterly or annual subscription basis. UKG Pro is often a premium priced HRIS option. UKG Pro's software fees can cost between $25-34 PEPM for customers of their platform.

In addition to the software fees, implementing UKG will require a one-time implementation fee. UKG, or occasionally, their implementation partners, will charge ~40-60% of the annual software fees for their implementation fees (i.e., $40-60K implementation fee on a $100K annual purchase).

Administering UKG Pro does not require having a dedicated HRIS manager, but it does tend to work better when there are a few HR team members who can contribute to building and maintaining the system.

Who is UKG?

UKG was formed in the beginning of 2020 through a merger of Ultimate Software and Kronos. UKG stands for Ultimate Kronos Group. Before the merger, UKG Pro was the flagship product of Ultimate Software. The platform developed in the late 1990s and is HQ'd out of Weston, Florida. The merger of the two organizations has helped to strengthen UKG Pro's workforce management tools and more developments are expected on the near-term roadmap.

What Sized Companies Fit UKG Best?

UKG Pro is considered a Mid-Enterprise HRIS, which means the system works best for companies with between 350 and 5,000 employees. Mid-Enterprise solutions are designed to be all-in-one HRIS's for companies with a moderate-to-high degree of complexity.

Mid-Enterprise solutions typically take about 4-5 months to implement and only occasionally require external consultants to successfully implement and manage the solutions. Mid-Enterprise solutions have more custom workflow tools and rules engines to support a business's growing complexity.
