Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that the Deborah Heart and Lung Center, ranked among the top hospitals in the U.S. for patient satisfaction by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), has selected the UltiPro solution to unify HR, payroll, and talent management in one easy-to-use cloud platform.
New Jersey-based Deborah Heart and Lung Center focuses exclusively on cardiac, vascular, and lung disease using state-of-the-art technology and care. Like most healthcare systems, the organization has complex HCM requirements, and executives wanted a unified solution that could seamlessly handle the scope of its people management. After an extensive evaluation process by department leaders across the organization, the company selected Ultimate Software’s UltiPro in October 2012 because of the cloud solution’s comprehensive HCM functionality and easy-to-use technology.
“We have been using many disparate ‘best-of-breed’ systems—payroll, HR, recruitment, performance management, and timekeeping—that all had to be kept in sync,” said James F. Carlino, SPHR, CCP, vice president of human resources, CHRO at the Deborah Heart and Lung Center. “We were clearly impressed with the UltiPro solution—a single HCM platform with an intuitive user interface, advanced functionality, and cloud technology that will empower our managers and staff with greater access and control over important information that is relevant to them.”
Other unique advantages of cloud-based UltiPro include central business rules across multiple areas of HCM; centralized workflow among HR, payroll, benefits, and talent management; cohesive reporting for strategic business intelligence; seamless sign-on with ‘sticky’ user preferences; flexible enterprise integration tools; and the ability to handle complex payroll processing, a particularly valuable asset for healthcare organizations.“With UltiPro, we can eliminate a great deal of manual intervention that had to occur when moving data among disparate systems. Our teams can save time on administrative tasks and deliver a better user experience for our managers and employees,” said Carlino. “Plus, we will be able to focus our limited resources on more strategic initiatives, critically assess the range of our human capital processes, and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our efforts so that our employees and our overall organization will benefit.”
