Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that Athletico, a Chicago-based leader in outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation, has improved overall HR business reporting, provided better service to employees, and eliminated hundreds of manual transactions related to HR by leveraging UltiPro as the center of its HCM initiatives.
Prior to making the switch to UltiPro in 2007, Athletico’s leadership realized that the organization needed sophisticated technology that would handle HR activities better, faster, with fewer resources, and without the responsibility of managing software. To more effectively manage its rapid growth while controlling costs, Athletico chose UltiPro for its cloud delivery and for its breadth of HCM features and reporting functionality.
“With UltiPro, our HR team has become more of a business metrics and analytics group rather than a data-processing group,” said Nancy Kusner, director of HR at Athletico. “We are focusing our efforts on the bigger picture and instantly delivering HCM reports to executives about important issues like manpower trends and benefits costs. Supervisors also have immediate access to metrics they need on a daily basis to be effective, such as headcount reports, recruiting status data, and attendance history. UltiPro’s unified reporting really benefits the entire organization.”
With almost 100 locations and over 1,300 employees, it was important to Kathy Yates, payroll manager at Athletico, that the new HCM solution be easy to use so that adoption of the technology would be high.“Our workforce touches UltiPro every single day—when managing their time, applying for a job, changing a benefits selection, or adding a dependent. We have had such positive feedback from our employees about UltiPro. Employees can see everything important to them whenever and from wherever, and they love it,” said Yates. “UltiPro has allowed us to provide better service to employees while reducing the burden and expense on our HR and payroll teams.”
