Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers Improves A Range Of HR Operational Efficiencies With Ultimate Software’s UltiPro

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that the Texas Rangers Baseball, LLC, a 2,000-employee professional baseball team based in Arlington, Texas, has significantly improved hiring efficiencies; streamlined multiple HR business processes, including onboarding and time management; and can better manage and forecast human capital expenses with UltiPro.

Prior to using UltiPro for talent acquisition, the Texas Rangers organized multiple job fairs to fill seasonal vacancies. Every spring, the HR team faced numerous challenges in quickly identifying and hiring approximately 1,200 individuals in a range of roles, including security, parking, and customer service representatives. For each fair, hundreds of individuals would wait in line to submit applications, be interviewed, and complete necessary screenings.

Because UltiPro has streamlined the talent acquisition process for the Rangers, the number and duration of fairs has been cut dramatically. According to Machelle Noel, finance systems analyst at the Texas Rangers, UltiPro has enabled the HR and payroll teams to improve their seasonal hiring, automate manual processes, and provide better service to candidates interested in working for the Texas Rangers.

“Now with UltiPro Recruitment, applicants are completing forms online, and we are reducing paper usage and improving the accuracy of hiring information. We set up the applicant interviews through email with UltiPro’s scheduling tools and only invited those to the fair who were the most qualified based on the screening questions completed. By cutting paper, decreasing the number of individuals interviewed, and reducing the amount of applicants required to complete costly pre-employment verifications, we are achieving a range of hard- and soft-cost savings associated with hiring as well as providing a high-quality experience for candidates,” said Noel. “Everyone raved about how much more smoothly our Spring 2012 hiring process was by using UltiPro.”

Once candidates are hired at the Texas Rangers, their information is moved into UltiPro for payroll — without HR or payroll teams having to go through duplicate data entry. Employees can easily log in to UltiPro to finalize the onboarding process online, review employment documents, and quickly and efficiently complete required forms. UltiPro streamlines the onboarding process — helping the Texas Rangers manage its fluctuating workforce more easily and with fewer resources and less expenditures.

“UltiPro is especially helpful to us because every year we scale in size, and now this transition is easier for everyone,” said Noel. “We can quickly hire and re-hire employees and then get them started on becoming immediately productive — all without having to attend unnecessary meetings, print booklets, or mail piles of paper.”
