Our agency has a number of federal and private grants tied to personnel costs and allocations. DATIS e3 is extraordinary at allowing the end user to slice information as needed for complex reporting.

Pros

DATIS

  • Position management
  • Payroll solutions
  • Open Enrollment/benefits management
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

UltiPro

  • Business Intelligence reporting: it allows for point in time and can report on all data fields within the database.
  • Salary Planning: this has allowed us to take a completely manual process with excel spreadsheets and make it an online process with approvals and workflows. Once approved the data automatically flows over to the employee's HR record. This has saved a lot of time for the managers, Human Resources, and Payroll.
  • On boarding: we have taken a paper process and made it completely paperless.
  • Configurable: the ability to create our own fields for data specific to us, and place those fields on current screens for updating and reporting.

Cons

DATIS

  • Supervision documentation is difficult to use if the supervisor doesn’t adhere to the rigid schedule
  • Applicant site doesn’t automatically integrate with outside recruitment tools, so tracking of recruitment data is complicated.
  • DATIS has struggled with customer service support unless you have a dedicated contact
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

UltiPro

  • With the training feature, you can get to it from the main UltiPro login, but you can't get back to the main screen in UltiPro from the training menu. It's a one way link.
  • Setting up security access is very individual. This can be good so that you can define what each user actually needs, but it is tedious so that you can't just assign a pre-defined set of rules for a role and assign it to a list of individuals wholesale.
  • The benefits administration feature would be better if it would total up your costs for you as you chose your benefits from the available lists. You don't get a total until the end, which isn't ideal.

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

Ultipro is by far the very best HCM solution that I've used, and I don't mind acting as a point of contact to anyone that might be interested in hearing from an actual user about my experiences with the suite. Ultipro can pretty much handle anything that you throw at it, while ensuring that what you throw at it is compliant with federal and state regulations. It really is quite simple to use and only gets easier to use the more you use it obviously. I would encourage anyone that is having issues with the suite to partner with their customer success manager to tackle anything that is at any point problematic.

In the 3+ years that we've been live in UltiPro, I believe the core HR/Payroll module went down one time. I don't recall how long it was down for, possibly an hour or two, but thankfully it was not during a payroll week for us so it did not impact us significantly. Other than that, there are some minor outages every once in a while with the Recruiting application, but the communication when those outages occur is very good so you always get status updates.

UltiPro, for the most part, seems to run pretty well, but there are times when it slows down. Simply logging out and back in will fix this problem, but it can be annoying. This seems to happen when I am going through a lot of different pages pretty quickly for a long period of time.

Generally, the support is great. There are several options to reach someone: chat, case creation online, phone and I generally get answers very quickly. There have been high volume times where an answer is harder to come by, but that's the case anywhere. I believe Ultimate has better customer service than other vendors I've used.

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.

There is a whole website dedicated to training with UltiPro and they have coined it UltiUniversity. You have the option to take self-paced training where you listen and watch videos or you can take an online instructor-led course and ask questions throughout the training. I think both methods with UltiPro work well and I would highly recommend going with what you prefer.

UltiPro made it very easy to implement. I implemented UltiPro on my own (as we were short-handed), in addition to my other duties, and was able to stay on track with our original implementation timeline. The process is laid out in a very detailed method. This was by far the most thorough and easiest implementation that I have been through

Alternatives Considered

DATIS

DATIS e3 is a different kind of system that may not be the solution for someone who is looking for an “off the shelf” solution. It is flexible and customizable to meet the specific needs of your organization. It is robust and thorough. They could benefit from spending money on a mobile solution.
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

UltiPro

I worked with SilkRoad from 2006 to 2017. First started with the ATS (open hire) and then we bought the onboarding platform. Features that they had but Ulti still doesn't include candidate ranking even way back in 2006. Great help for a recruiter when you are pressed for time and helps with prioritizing candidates. SilkRoad did not integrate with our past payroll provider ADP.

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.

Return on Investment
