Why this Integration?

This integration automates user account management processes in Empuls based on employee data available in your UKG Ready account.

With this integration, you can:

  • Add new employees to Empuls automatically when their UKG Ready profile is created.

  • Edit existing employee data in Empuls simply by updating their UKG Ready profile.

  • Remove exited employees from Empuls based on their exit date/status in UKG Ready.

Once this integration is enabled, the data will sync once every 24 hours between Empuls and your UKG Ready account.
