I find that Ultipro has many good features and functions and allows employees to access a wealth of personal information (compensation, paystubs, etc). In timekeeping and approving (as a supervisor or manager) I find Ultipro to be a bit clunky. It seems to take 4 or 5 steps to change or fix a time error when it should only take 1 or 2.

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

Each "silo" of the UltiPro function is usually created by that department - recruiting builds out recruiting and onboarding, payroll builds payroll, TD builds performance, etc. Problem is that WE, the builders, don't usually know how the other team will build their system so often times they don't talk well. You build it over a series of meetings with your SME, with can make it disjointed to build. There is a different SME for each function, so if I want to build a report that pulls from my onboarding module, I have to talk to a different SME because the onboarding SME doesn't know Business Intelligence SME. Building it is a second full-time job for your team. We had to build out own training for our employees on how to use the system because each system is so customizable, you won't have a packaged training you can plop in front of your employees.

Advice to Others

Get help during the build phase. You will have so many homework assignments to complete, we pulled in two contractors and I don't know how we cold have done it without them. Have team meetings with your own internal team to discuss how you are building your module. Get a strong Project Manager to divide out the duties you will have, like the classes you will have to take and the time you will invest into building the modules. It is intense.

UltiPro is easily the greatest tool for HR professionals for ease of consolidation, reporting, and back-office tools. Their product may cost more than others, but the ease of use and "one-stop shop" for pretty much all HR and payroll needs can't be beaten.

Pros

Reporting, taxes, payroll, year-end, customer service all rank far above anything else on the market.

Cons

The system is very customizable so there can be flaws in getting it "perfect for you", but with hard work and a good customer support staff, anyone can get there.

Advice to Others

Set up regular times to work with your account manager and get to know them well- they are your best advocate in the UltiPro system!

We have been very pleased with the end user functionality, the employee portal and employee electronic personnel files. The time management system is accurate and very easy to use with our hourly employees and also earned time off requests. We also use the talent management module which has improved the efficiency of our position placements.

Pros

Modules are easy to roll out
User Friendly
Great support
Administrative reports are easy to use

Cons

In my Opinion, The price has been increasing too quickly over the past few years, however they are still cheaper than some of the larger HR/Payroll software companies.

Advice to Others

I would review this product if you are looking for a time management/payroll/HR solution all in one.

We were so excited to get UltiPro in 2006. Contracts were the norm then and they had so much that we could add on to when we needed other options for recruiting, time management, onboarding, etc. Only draw back at that time (not insurmountable) was that we had to use Ceridian for Tax services and check printing and garnishment check printing. Training became 'do it yourself' and the prices were lowered for training (now down to free!) BUT.... all the upgrades and services we needed were never offered to us. We (as a law firm) kept down-sizing until Ulti-Pro's contract was charging us for employees we didn't have. We can't talk them into lowering the price and they want to charge over $6000 to come and do an 'overhaul' to see what all we would like to use. 140 employees seems to be beneath them. BUT all customer service agents seem to be knowledgeable and very polite and willing to help whenever I open a case/ticket.

Pros

Good customer service, great products, good chat groups to engage with other users to get answers

Cons

pricing, contracts, no keeping in touch to expand or help with more services

Advice to Others

Don't lock into a contract; Make sure you have all the modules you need and GET TRAINED in using EACH of them;

I have been an UP user for 10 years with 2 companies. Great, solid HR/Payroll/Benefit (Core) product, but customer support has always been the issue. They are pricey and nickel and dime you for everything. They have a lot of tools to make a complete HRIS, but I have heard and done some research on adding their ATS or Performance Management and decided to go another route.

Pros

I love the Tax filing services - integrated with payroll and just push a button to send taxes and they are done properly
I love the EE self service and Manager self service payroll. Really helped to streamline my processes.

Cons

Customer Service is lacking. We have an Engagement Manager, Account Manager, Client Relations Manager, that changes every 6 months and I have no idea who does what - never heard from most of them. When I contact one they push me to the other and sometimes I don't even hear from them unless I follow up a few times.

Call back on support tickets is a few days at best. They will call and get more info and I think the clock restarts. Has gotten worse over the last 2 years.

I have used Ultipro for four years through my tenure with my HR department. We have mainly used it for employee tracking and payroll, but have recently added Time and Attendance and Recruitment. Ultipro holds a lot of sensitive information and helps us accomplish our tasks as they come up. The interface system runs smoothly if a bit slow in order to recall the information. Tab navigation takes some practice, but makes logical sense once it is explained. If anything, I would appreciate smart pop-ups which show up for first time users and when errors continue to happen.
While most of Ultipro runs well, the Time and Attendance application is very difficult to manage for our employees. Adjusting sick and vacation time is confusing and difficult due to a lack of ways to adjust mistakes. The interface is also difficult to read and doesn't have options to make text bigger, or more understandable. Paired with this is the very expensive TouchBase system which is given by you (Ultimate Software). This system works very well at places which have multiple employees using it, but we have many sites with 10 or fewer employees, where the cost does not outweigh the benefits of the system.
Ultimate University and the webinars are good ways to learn about Ultipro. These help all who use them, however there is not as much support and follow up afterwards to help push along the ideas.

Pros

It runs pretty well and securely stores all of my companies information.

Cons

UTA is a mess and hard to work with.

Customer Support has been low for the past 2-3 years, but on the up with a new Executive Account Manager. They are/have been launching updated modules which appear to be pretty good, but come at a much higher cost. This has prohibited us from taking advantage of these new products. For time & attendance and applicant tracking, we have had to seek and purchase alternative software to support our needs and budget. Unfortunately, we have not been able to recoup savings from UltiPro for not using their modules. Overall, it feels like we are getting less and less for our money.

Our 4 hotels and corporate office currently use UltiPro to handle HR, payroll, on-boarding, performance management and time management. We have eliminated a lot of manual work which has led us to be more efficient at work and provide an overall better experience for every type of user. Being able to customize our UltiPro environment to our needs and goals is one of the best features.

Pros

The resources that UltiPro has is incredible. There are endless job aids, complimentary webinars and on-line classes, live customer support, etc... right at your fingertips. Our Account Manager has been amazing and patient through all the changes we wanted to do. The ability to easily activate/deactivate features has been significant for us as our company has grown tremendously over the last 2 years.

Cons

There is not a Labor Management System as of today, however, future updates and releases show possibilities of this in the near future.

Advice to Others

Understand what your business needs are from all aspects; HR, Benefits, Finance, Reporting, Time Management so the Implementation Specialist can set you up for success.

UltiPro does what it is designed to do well. However it does not allow for a lot of flexibility. Our company has a lot of unique needs for managing our employee population and it often feels like we are sticking a square peg in a round hole. We usually just have to make it work and adjust around the rigid structure of UltiPro.

Pros

It's layout and straightforward format. It is reliable and consistently performs.

Cons

Very rigid options and low flexibility

I like that the product is extremely adaptable to the many changes HR often has to make in order to comply with laws and regulations. Our vendor keeps up-to-date with the changes and is proactive in adapting the software to accommodate the changes.

Likes Least

Sometimes the cost factor for entering data is a bit pricy for our organization. I least like that some of the data (that we chose to enter ourselves) can be tedious to enter (e.g., college information). However, I am sure if we wanted to pay the cost, we could have the vendor enter the data.

Recommendations

I recommend that when others are evaluating software, it is very important to find out how adaptable the software is to changing laws and regulations. I know that when the regulations for healthcare was instituted, I knew many organizations that were trying to adjust their HRIS software and found it difficult. Most ended up purchasing new software. Whereas, with Ultipro, they were so proactive in updating their software to comply with the regulations, that when the time came for our organization to comply, all I had to do was "push a button". I had no stress!!!
