by | Oct 24, 2023

Axsium Group Ltd., the world’s leading independent workforce management consulting firm, is thrilled to announce that its labor planning and analytics solution Planara now directly integrates with UKG Pro Workforce Management.

This integration makes labor planning easy for UKG Pro Workforce Management users thanks to Planara’s unique ability to harmonize labor budgeting processes.

“Changes in UKG Pro Workforce Management seamlessly update in Planara, allowing users to adapt instantly and analyze potential responses,” says Axsium’s Chief UKG Strategy Officer Robin Merritt, “We’re leaning into our customers’ needs with this exciting enhancement to the immense value they get from Planara, That value will only strengthen our already-strong partnership with UKG.”

UKG Pro Workforce Management users can now integrate their effective-dated Business Structure to Planara in real-time. For example, changes to the organization hierarchy or new locations are updated immediately in Planara, allowing users to both budget and explore what-if scenarios using the latest assumptions.

And with the latest forecast, actual, and earned business metrics directly integrated, Planara users can more rapidly evaluate past performance and develop future projections. For example, a monthly labor planning process in Planara is now instantly updated with the prior period’s actual performance and the current/future period’s forecasts from UKG Pro Workforce Management.
