Ultimate Software (Nasdaq:ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that Sammons Financial Group (SFG), an insurance holding company whose member companies offer a diverse portfolio of investment services, has leveraged the UltiPro solution to streamline communication with employees; provide managers with direct access to employee data; and elevate HR’s ability to create and deliver people-centric reporting and business intelligence.
Prior to using UltiPro, SFG was using a system that did not meet the needs of the organization. The leadership team included Ultimate Software in its assessment for a new HCM solution and then chose Ultimate because of its reputation and culture as well as its flexible HR and payroll solutions delivered via the cloud.
“Ultimate is the best fit for our organization,” said Vicki Murra, HRIS analyst at Midland National Life Insurance Company, an SFG member company. “The company has the same focus on people that we do, it has long tenure in the HR technology industry, and its customer retention rate is very high. UltiPro offers the flexible and easy-to-use technology that we wanted, including 24-7 direct access for employees and managers that immediately gives them the info they need.”
With 1,400 member company employees in four offices and many virtual locations around the U.S., SFG wanted to simplify communications and HR processes while providing all employees with more information and news that is instantly available.“One of the best aspects of UltiPro is how intuitive it is from the end-user perspective as well as from the administrator perspective. We were able to easily configure the UltiPro portal to reflect what we needed — we post everything such as information on benefits providers, our holiday schedule, and the company’s mission, vision, and core values for all to see,” said Murra. “It’s very easy for employees to access. They log in, click a button, and everything is available to them in one centralized place. UltiPro provides our organization with a much more effective way to communicate with and deliver services to our employees. Plus, UltiPro’s workflow speeds up processes when approvals are needed.” SFG member company managers also are taking advantage of UltiPro’s online accessibility to get the information they need to make every day decisions.
