UKG Review

UKG's ACA manager is available under the umbrella of two different products, Workforce Dimensions Suite and Workforce Ready Suite. Both offer the essentials for an HCM, with Dimensions including AI and other additional features.

Because UKG's products are full suites, the process is completely automated from start to finish. This is ideal for large and enterprise level companies, whose HR teams simply don't have time to handle thousands of 1095-C forms.
