Would like to see the Mobile App become more robust with accepting tax changes, direct deposit changes, allowing life events and open enrollment functionality. Educate long time customers and explain the benefits for purchasing the additional packages that are available. Especially for customers who are in the target range of 500 to 5000 employees. We have been a customer since 1999 and each year we discover new things that could have saved time if we had a different packages purchased. We are now obtaining quotes to see what the cost would be to implement the additional packages. We also have a disconnect between Ultipro and a current ERP software use on our manufacturing floor. In brainstorming how to connect the 2 with an import/export we are realizing that there is a timing delay as to when the employee needs to be in our ERP system and when they get pushed into Ultipro Core. Having the product in the cloud and having a robust system allows us the "Sky is the Limit" mentality for how we are able to use Ultimate Software. Also having the technology advantage to be able to offer employees a Mobile App at no cost. Having the team approach for our Customer Service needs, our Account Manager is available, but when case are needing attention other account managers take case to increase priority.

We launched with UltiPro a year and a half ago. The implementation team was very knowledgeable of the product and services offered. They were able to come to the house on many occasions for hands-on training prior to the launch. We also traveled to an On-Site Class near us. These were great to be able to talk back and forth through issues you had been experiencing. I recommend taking notes for questions you may have before going. In the Learning Center Online, there is an abundance of course and previously recorded webcasts for you to learn from. The levels range from the beginner to more complex detailed positions. The Security-Based features are wonderful for companies with multiple subsidiaries. The reporting has many standard reports built for you. It also has the ability for you as a customer to build unique reports to fit your companies' needs. Onboarding has been a way for us to eliminate a lot of paperwork and scanning of policies and documents. It has taken a while to get in groove with so many locations hiring all our seasonal employees at the same time. However, in the end this is saving enormous amounts of time.Security-based roles are great for top down management. Payroll processing is a lot faster. We have completely moved away from paper checks. The Community Groups and Knowledge Hours are a great tool to have to continually learn from other customers on how they are using the same programs in their company. Many customers are very quick to respond to simple or complex questions. UltiPro has an extensive collection of resource materials that are searchable to help quickly. In the beginning, the Quick Tour videos were a life saver. You learn so much information at once that you don't retain it all. These videos are brief and to the point. they are housed on each screen that it pertains to which is wonderful. Also, every screen has a "Things" I can do here. Another good tool when learning where to locate all of the information.

We began with UltiPro at the end of this summer, going from an antiquated HRIS system to what we (correctly) thought would be a significant upgrade. And while the cost does reflect that; and it is an upgrade; it has been an extremely rough road getting there. Technical issues, the amount of data required (most of it being a manual entry, in part to our antiquated system we were on before) and the level of depth you will go into building this system is outrageous. Each "silo" was assigned a technical SME who helped us build the program. Everything is incredibly customizable and easy to change once it is set up.Assigned help along the way, so you knew who your person was. You can build a system to your liking. Makes some functionalities very easy, like building out an "opportunity" or requisition. The system has some great possibilities and can support a lot of different functions through customizable reports. A lot of integrations into external vendor systems that make background checks, job posting, benefits, 401K very easy. Once it is BUILT, I can see how easy it will be to use.

Best HR site I have personally used

Allows me to view all my HR information all in one location.Been using this site now for our clocking in and out at work for 5+ years. Very easy to use. Site has never been down, always up and works. The site is speedy to navigate. Allows me to easily and quickly log in and out. Allows me to pick easily pick my insurance every year and has all the information I need on the site. Allows me to quickly get a brief overview how many sick/personal/vacation days I have and will earn. Can hop in and request days off very easily and then view a yearly calendar to see what I have already added in the future and the past. We also use this for our performance reviews. Not a fan of those but the site makes it work OK. Site times out at 30 minutes and it gives you a countdown before it gets there, so it makes it easy for me to see when to clock back in for lunch. I can also view my paycheck stubs here. It is very nice to have access to all of this in one location. I also hear it integrates with AD credentials but we have not implemented that. I have used other HR websites such as Kronos and this one is so much easier to use.

Be skeptical of everything. There's a reason why I get offered more sporting event tickets, private movie screenings, and various other events from UltiPro, than I receive from any other vendor. They know they're awful and they try to make it up to you by schmoozing so you give them a good reference when a potential client wants to reach out. I have declined 95% of their invitations because not only are they in the middle of a workday, my workload has increased due to project managing their work. Have a forensic attorney read your agreement and no matter what UltiPro says, they will negotiate. Make sure every single detail is in your agreement or you will absolutely be screwed post-live. UltiPro will tell you they do not include service level agreements in their contracts and that is not true. They will hold you to the agreement only when it suits them but definitely not when it screws the customer. People get paid, the reports are great, managers find it easy to use, rapid response folks are helpful in a pinch, and it's nice the same service rep stays with you from case opening to close.
