The end of life for Workforce Central (WFC) is approaching, meaning organizations using this platform must migrate to UKG Dimensions. I came across this post from the Project Genetics blog and thought I would share it with you.
This migration can be a significant undertaking, and ensuring your organization is ready for the transition is essential. This blog will explore key considerations for determining an organization’s readiness for a UKG migration and end-of-life for WFC.
1. Determine your current level of WFC utilization.
The first step in determining whether your organization is ready for a UKG migration is to assess your current level of WFC utilization. This includes understanding which modules you currently use, how many users are in the system, and what customizations you have in place. This information will help you determine the scope of the migration and identify any potential issues that may arise during the transition.
Evaluate your current business processes.
The next step is to evaluate your current business processes and identify areas where UKG Dimensions can provide added value. This includes looking at your existing workflows and identifying areas with inefficiencies or opportunities for improvement. By understanding how UKG Dimensions can improve your business processes, you can better justify the investment and prepare your team for the transition.
Assess your data readiness.
Another important consideration for a UKG migration is data readiness. This includes understanding the quality and completeness of your existing data and ensuring an easier data migration to UKG Dimensions. You’ll also need to consider any data mapping and conversion requirements and ensure that you have a plan to address any data issues.
Understand the level of training required.
UKG Dimensions is a powerful platform with a wide range of capabilities but it can also be complex. Assessing the training required for your team to use the platform effectively is essential. This training plan includes understanding the new features and functionality of UKG Dimensions and identifying areas where additional training may be required.
Develop a project plan.
Finally, to ensure a successful UKG migration, developing a comprehensive project plan is essential. This plan should include key milestones, timelines, and a list of resources required to complete the migration. By having a well-defined project plan in place, you can ensure everyone is on the same page and that the migration is completed on time and within budget.
Migrating from WFC to UKG Dimensions can be a significant undertaking, but it can be a smooth transition with careful planning and preparation. You can ensure your organization is ready for a UKG migration and end-of-life for WFC.
