Using Ultimate the Payroll processing is set to next level. We have been extremely satisfied using this product. It has organized our process and we can make Payroll quickly now.

Employee management can be improved a little bit. Managing timesheet is good but the interface can be improved.

Recommendations

Seems good to use if you have to manage Payroll online. It removes the hassle of managing it.

I support the UltiPro system for my company as an IS employee and work closely with the support staff at Ultimate to resolve our issues in a timely manner.

Likes Least

Some of the functionality does not work like it should and Ultimate has not taken the time or invested in resources to fix issues that affect many of it's customers. Missing supervisors in the Org Charts cause the entire tree to not be displayed and this is an issue that could be resolved.

Recommendations

Make sure you select the correct modules that you need for your company. We selected the wrong time product UTM and now it is very expensive for us to change to UTA and our company size limits us from using UTM for all employees if we desire in the future.

My least favorite quality about the UltiPro product is the fact that there are so many great tools, I don't have enough time in the day to be able to leverage everything that I want to.

The best thing about the product is that it is a live system and for the most part, is user friendly.

Likes Least

I dislike that the upgrades conflict with our custom pages. Each time an update is done, some of our pages have issues and we have to create a case to have it corrected.

Recommendations

I would recommend that they understand that they will be building the database on their own, with little help from their implementation consultant. This is especially difficult for someone who is new to the software. Things that "made sense" in their old software may not work the same way in Ulti.

When we went live, there was some payroll functionality that didn't seem to work 100% accurately (garnishments.) I think this has since changed and the product seems to be better.

Recommendations

Be sure to ask a lot of questions, and be sure to ask many questions about the implementation process...it seems a lot of implementation is put on the customer, who doesn't even know the product fully when implementing.

What I like most about UltiPro is that we had the opportunity to combine several systems into one program when we implemented the product. I like that the employee has "self-service" access to their own information as it reduces a number if questions to our HR Team.
I would also say the previous account manager we have had as well as the OE consultant we have used have been great. Very knowledgeable and responsive. I like they are willing to share what they see other clients of theirs do and they share that knowledge with us.
Everyone is generally very nice!

Likes Least

What I like least about this product and vendor is that we are told all the time to just call when we have questions, but there are so many people who are set up to "service" us we are not really sure who to go to and when. As a result, I've experienced having to share feedback with someone I don't really thing should hear it but I don't know who else to go to. I also struggle with the fact that you hire a lot of technology people but some don't have any understanding of HR. In several instances we have had to explain and re-explain how our company benefits are set up and even then they struggled to understand how benefits work.
I also think you should provide to your employees better understanding how why things are the way they are. I have heard many times at the sessions this week, "I'm not sure why that is, it just is."

Recommendations

Ask ALOT of questions. Think long and hard about what you have currently and how it will be different with UltiPro. When in doubt ask, "how do your other clients handle this?"

What I liked the least about UltiPro was the the tier process when our support ticket need escalation; however, I am aware that this issue has been resolved.

Recommendations

I recommend that companies have a clear and precise implementation plan when evaluating this software and that they view demo's to see if UltiPro is a good fit for their organization.

Some future road maps available (onboarding) but still developing, predictive analytic capabilities could benefit from larger adoption and sample size to verify efficacy and claims, but overall great product though.

In order to make the most use of features and functionality make sure to examine your internal processes first, software is only half of the solution.

The best experience with Ultimate Software has been the more robust features compared to our previous product. Reporting is simpler to understand thanks to the ability to visually see how the information is organized.

Likes Least

The implementation phases for UltiPro Core and UTM were rocky at best. Our initial system consultant was swapped out after the initial on-site visit and information gathering concept. Her replacement, while eager to be helpful and being incredibly responsive to any questions, was a little green to be on a implementation that was more complex that meets the eye. UTM is a product that is more robust and helpful from an accounting perspective, but the product itself appears to be unstable or prone to glitches because "that's just the way it is."

Recommendations

I recommend that anyone considering migrating to UltiPro evaluate how comfortable they are building their database from nearly the ground up. A lot of time is required and understanding of how databases work is needed,

Ultimate continues to develop, listen and improve. It has helped up designate a second payroll position to meet another need because we aren't duplicating efforts on the HR, Payroll and General Ledge package side. Ultimate is a great company and overall we are very satisfied. Like that there is continual development of the product.

Likes Least

We have to be much more knowledgeable about what is connected to what and how turning something on or off can affect taxes, reporting, tracking. It puts more risk and responsibility on staff and we worry about penalties from oversight agencies and the department of labor if we make a mistake.

Recommendations

Definitely consider Ultimate!! They are on the move and a great company. I would recommend they need to be prepared to shift processes, and unless they have a dedicated person to implement, that they plan on hitting delays due to staff working on the project being pulled to their regular jobs throughout the process.

Most of the Ultimate staff are responsive and accessible, willing to help or connect us to resources.

Likes Least

1. Compartmentalized Ultimate resources - I don't like having to sort out who can help, and/or take additional steps to reach a resource who can solve a problem - I'd like my first contact to sort that all out instead. 2. Implementation timeline in sales pitch significantly under represented the time and resources needed. 3. Benefits administration functionality is weak out of the box.

Recommendations

Engage a 3rd party implementation partner. Look under the hood to understand what Ultimate means about an integrated solution (most of what we use doesn't live in the core product).
Go to Connections.
Prepare for a lot of training for the implementation team.

Ultimate constantly strives to improve their products and stay up to date with the market and customer's needs! They listen to their customers as well. Ultimate also does a great job of staying up to date on new and expanding regulatory requirements (can you say ACA?). I love that I don't have to know every tax law and tax change thrown at us.

There have been times where service and support has not been where I would like it to be; however, in recent years that again has been improving. I would like to see more improvements in timing on service requests for interfaces, customs, etc.

Ultimate isn't a company that just gets your company live and then says "good luck" like some companies do. You always have an entire team behind you to help you along the way, ensuring your success.
