UltiPro

Ultipro is a great product for our business due to the 24/7 nature of the workforce. The ability to access self-service and make changes, print pay stubs, change taxes, direct deposit, etc., makes it easier for the Human Resources staff. It also makes open enrollment a breeze where in the past we utilized paper forms.

Pros

  • ADP Streamline works best if you have a great ADP rep on the other end for your payroll purposes. I had a fantastic rep who was very responsive.
  • The ease and security of the upload process makes things quick and easy. Especially when actually preparing the payroll for upload can be difficult.
  • The report running format when I was using ADP Streamline was extremely user friendly and easy to navigate.

  • They really listen to their customers.
  • They continue to add new features
  • They have a lot of training classes and hands-on learning opportunities that really helped me do more as users.

Cons

  • ADP sales team should be more knowledgeable about the product they sell you
  • ADP employees should be more up to date on tax liabilities in different states
  • I think ADP should assign one contact person so you don't have to get a different person each time you need assistance

  • Interfaces: We began our activation with UltiPro in April 2017 and despite our best efforts internally, our interfaces with carriers (medical, dental, etc.) are still not in production. We had almost no support until October 2017 to get this done.
  • Some lack of control: There are things we have to go to UltiPro to do for us versus doing ourselves, which can cause delays unnecessarily.
  • UTM and Core: There is definitely a disconnect between core and UTM. This needs to be much more seamless.

We are overall happy with UltiPro and it works well for our organization and we have plans to expand our usage of it even more so we will definitely be continuing with the product. We are thinking of adding the functionality for training and recruiting as well, which is an add-on product

For the most part UltiPro has been reliable, but it could definitely be better. There have been several notable server issues where we were unable to access the product or unable to utilize some of the features. Customer support is usually quick to respond to questions about these issues, but they do not proactively reach out to customers whose environments have been effected by outages

UltiPro has met all of our expectations and provided us with the tools needed to build our employee and management supports and to report the results whenever needed. The program has grown and been modified to keep pace with changes in recruitment practices, and our employees find it easy to access their information and change benefits at any time. Our support staff has been freed up to focus on other areas of business growth. More of our HR processes are automated and need only approval of the self-service processes.

You get great support during activation but afterwards it is hit or miss. Slow to respond and getting your account manager involved is an act of congress and YOU have to seek it out, it won't just happen for you. Very disappointing level of service.

I've been to a few in-person (hands on) training sessions and it is very similar to the online classes. You have the same reference material to look back on after the training. So regardless of in person training or online you really get the same thing.

They have quite the selection in their Ulti University. If you need knowledge, they have a live online class to help you. I've taken about half of all courses that are offered and they have helped my Ultipro experience tremendously. The classes are interactive so you have lessons to do as the class goes on and you also recieve a manual for later reference.

The implementation project is aggressive but achievable. Ultimate provides great support for this effort. Consider the project plan and make sure you have the internal resources available to support it before you begin. Consider the timing of the implementation plan. If you purchase optional modules, consider taking a break after CORE implemenentation before beginning another activation project (to give your staff time to recover). Consider the deployment timing to coincide with the beginning of your fiscal year (it is not required but it will make some balance-forward calculations easier). For now, consider deploying the optional modules after Ultimate has finished bringing them in-house. Engage your benefits vendors early in the process to allow time to develop the automatic feeds from Ultipro.

ADP was selected through a reference we received

The ADP system we used was really old and everything had to be done in multiple steps. The reporting features were very limited and scheduling was not an option. Also they did not offer some of the other modules and provide a seamless solution. ADP customer service was hit and miss whereas UltiPro customer service is excellent.

We switched to UltiPro specifically for its scalability due to having locations in both the US and Canada and continuing to add new locations. It has been working very well for us, and allows us to add and manage new entities relatively simply and manage data for multiple different locations and pay groups. It has made handling our data simpler, as previously we had two different systems for our US and Canada operations.
