With so many agencies submitting candidates and only a few being reviewed at a time the chance of a candidate making it to a review and in front of a hiring manager is low.

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

  • Centralized location
No photo available
  • Cognos Analytics is one of the best features of Ultipro. There are no limits to the data you can get from Ultipro which makes it invaluable in ensuring we are on track with the budget.
  • Employee self-service is a popular feature with our agency. They no longer have to come by HR to fill out forms or make changes and with a 24/7 business, this is a helpful tool.
  • We are currently experimenting with the documents section to track progressive discipline. This is allowing supervisors and managers to see where they are and what improvements they need to work on.

Cons

  • There are so many other agencies submitting candidates it is hard to make a placement
  • Only a few candidates are reviewed at a time and sent to the hiring managers
  • Lack of feedback
No photo available
  • Time management lacks a little for retail environments. Needs the ability to retain, repeat and publish schedules +30 days in advance as well as the ability to accommodate floating holidays more easily.
  • Our Payroll department would prefer month-end reports to be auto-generated as they were with our prior system (ADP), but this is a minor preference issue, not one of functionality.
  • Implementation was compressed into a 90 day window; would have preferred a longer time due to the additional work this required in a very tight window along with all other end-of-year items.

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

Tickets are easy to put in. I've always gotten a call regarding my ticket and Ultipro has helped to resolve any problems pretty quickly. There is a lot of training available as well.

I've been to more than five in-person training sessions and each and every time the instruction has been superb. I had never used UltiPro prior to March 2016, but their Intro classes were so well-designed and at a reasonable pace that I was quickly able to learn the platform and even fall in love with the ease of use. Once the in-person training is complete, Ulti even has a rewards program of sorts where the classes you take rewards you with points that you can trade in for novelty items or additional specialized training and gift cards. Pretty cool!

UltiPro training programs are great. They (Ultimate Software support team) are always updating and improving their training delivery strategies to ensure that all users get the assistance or the help they need to complete a task, process, or transaction. UltiPro Job Aids are also very good learning tools, but our favorite training tool is the ULTI Quick Tours; they are outstanding. The Quick Tours are step-by-step interactive videos for specific features, functions, or transactions; the average time for each interactive tour is 5 – 10 minutes. We promote the Quick Tours in our GFB Quick Guide To Accessing & Maintaining Your HRMS Account hand-outs.

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.

We have made several placements through Fieldglass - not sure how their review process differs from Agile-1

I have been using UltiPro since 2009. I had left ADP and will never look back UltiPro is the leader in the industry and it seems all other HCM businesses are running to catch up. I love the ease of use and flexibility that UltiPro offers! I am a partner for life!

Scalability

Ultipro has great scalability overall. The core functionality of Ultipro allows for easy replication, while also providing room for customization that is often required during acquisitions/additions of new business units. The only drawback in scalability, is that by design, Ultipro requires knowledgeable end users and internal resources to execute. Although Ultipro provides immense support and service to its customers in all organizational phases, without the proper internal development, scalability could be hampered. At the same time, this is what I personally love about the product; the ability to work within a DIY environment during expansion while still having access to subject matter experts when needed.
