Overall Satisfaction with UltiPro

It is frustrating to build a relationship with a support person only to have that person promoted out of the position and then have to build a relationship with their replacement. It is good that they promote internally, but can slow down the process when you have to work with someone new so frequently.
We use Ultipro for our payroll, benefits administration, performance management, salary planning, time and attendance and recruitment needs. It is a one stop shop for all of our HRIS needs.
  • Salary Planning - ability to send out departmental worksheets with all relevant information on them, get approval and post new salaries to employee records with just a few clicks.
  • ACA recordkeeping - meets all requirements for ACA reporting, recordkeeping and tracking. Well designed and thought out flows.
  • Performance Management - ability to customize templates, schedule future appraisals, distribute mass appraisals, track developmental plans and goals.
  • Reporting - with a little practice the reporting capabilities are endless with this system.
  • eRecruitment seems a little disconnected from the Core application. I understand though that they are working on upgrades now.
  • When rolling out updates and new releases you have to make sure you ask a lot of questions as sometimes how the new functionality is described is accurate, but it does not give you all of the information that you need
  • Online training
  • Self-taught
Training is good and provides what it states it will. If you are a more advanced user, it is sometimes hard to find training that will meet your needs.
A smaller company may not have a need for all of the functionality that it offers. It is an extremely robust product.
