Simms & Associates Strengthens Relationship, Joins UKG Dimensions Technology Partner Network

Kwenta solution now part of UKG’s marketplace of innovations to reshape the future of workforce management

Madrid, 23 October 2020 – Simms & Associates (S&A) today announced it has joined the UKG Dimensions Technology Partner Network, a fast-growing ecosystem of organizations utilizing the UKG Dimensions solution (formerly known as Workforce Dimensions from Kronos) and intelligent D5 platform to help reshape the future of workforce management.

UKG Dimensions customers can now benefit from S&A’s Kwenta solution to track physical customer occupancy data to easily identify trends, accurately forecast staffing needs, and improve decisions across scheduling, task assignment, budgeting and more.

S&A has been a services partner of Kronos Incorporated since early 2016, providing implementation services to customers globally. Kronos rebranded as UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group) on Oct. 1, 2020 following its merger with Ultimate Software to become one of the largest cloud companies in the world.

“S&A has maintained a strong partnership with UKG since our inception, and it makes me incredibly proud to be taking that next step in terms of becoming a technology partner,” says Amanda Simms, Founder of S&A. “Our team has built a solid reputation based on our deep knowledge of the UKG suite of workforce management solutions, which stems in part from the fact that some of us spent much of our career there, myself included.”

Maintaining the relationship, S&A will continue supporting both UKG Central and UKG Dimensions customers. S&A also provides managed services offerings for UKG customers that require additional configuration, integration, and technical support, leveraging over 20 years of combined experience in workforce management technologies and industry-specific practice.

“Organizations around the world are at an inflection point, grappling with the challenges of COVID-19 and the new world of work,” said Peter Harte, Vice President, enterprise, EMEA, UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group). “We’re pleased to continue our relationship with S&A under our new brand and warmly welcome the company to the UKG Dimensions Technology Partner Program as we work together to reshape the future of work.”

UKG Dimensions is the first next-generation workforce management solution. It delivers artificial intelligence, real-time analytics, and a fully responsive user experience to empower employees and unburden managers.

“UKG Dimensions is built on a completely open and extensible platform, enabling innovative integrations with partners, including S&A, that empower employees in ways that simply are not possible with legacy solutions,” said Mike May, Senior Director, UKG Dimensions Technology Partner Network, UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group). “Providing a great technology experience not only drives user adoption, but it also helps organizations engage and retain their workforce.”
