Merging two of the world's leading workforce management companies is no small feat. Since Ultimate Software and Kronos, Inc. officially became UKG in April of 2020, the company has been rolling out massive changes, the latest of which is the renaming of UKG's singular product suite.
The most recent product streamlining effort began in January 2021 and continues today. Here are more product name changes to be on the lookout for.
New Names, Same Products
There are 100+ name changes that we will see across several key UKG product suites, including Workforce Dimensions (WFD), Workforce Central (WFC), Workforce Ready (WFR), Ulti Pro, Mobile Apps, and Devices.
Note: The only place you'll see the term "Workforce" moving forward is in UKG Workforce Central. UKG Dimensions and UKG Ready have both dropped the word "Workforce" from their descriptors, further distinguishing the product offerings.
