Push VS UKG

Push and UKG check all the boxes regarding managing your workforce and metrics. However, the big difference between the two are the markets they serve - and the depth of the tools developed to do so.

Push aims to provide business and restaurant owners one streamlined, integrated, and automated solution to manage all workforce and employee operations. 

All key modules are built within the Push solution, and they also offer integrations with leading restaurant POS systems and accounting solutions. Push is a one-stop shop for your people management needs. 

UKG is more geared toward HR executives in a corporate space.  They offer over 50 modules from which to choose and aim to help employers invest in human capital management more than anything. 

Push Operations solution overview:

The Push solution is sold based on feature bundles, offering three unique solutions: starter, pro, and premium.

Features can be stacked and added based on the solution stack your organization needs and offered per-seat basis.

Push primarily helps food service industry business owners overcome the unique challenges they face regarding workforce management.

Push is built on one platform, allowing seamless system updates and data transfer flow; Push also offers automated payroll calculations, saving business owners time and money. 

Push provides what the food service industry needs, enabling business operators to manage the employee life cycle of staff with flexible and variable hourly rates and providing robust integrations with restaurant-specific POS solutions. These unique features allow business owners to optimize revenue management with forecasting and integrated reports.

UKG

solution overview:

UKG was formed in 2020 due to the merger between Ultimate Software and Kronos Incorporated - Forming UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group). 

The company has acquired several other software solutions making them a widespread and robust solution built primarily for enterprise entities. Their modules include over 50 different branded features - providing a solution celebrated by some yet convoluted to others.

The platform's primary focus is on people - and the ability to invest in the career paths of your team, measure engagement and morale, and support career growth. 

Their pre-built “suites” include UKG Ready, UKG Pro, and UKG Dimensions - each with a unique bundle of modules included.
