Healthcare Products Manufacturer Leverages Ultimate Software’s UltiPro For Unified Human Capital Management, Overall Business Efficiencies

Stocks in this article: ULTI

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that Octapharma Plasma, a U.S.-based subsidiary of Octapharma AG, one of the world’s largest plasma products manufacturers, is leveraging the UltiPro solution to support rapid expansion, deliver strategic business intelligence to executives and managers, and achieve a range of companywide business benefits.

Octapharma Plasma, Inc. owns and operates plasma collection centers throughout the U.S. and its services are critical to the development of life-saving patient therapies used by thousands of patients all over the world. Previously, the company used multiple systems, including a payroll service bureau, to manage its 2,300 employees, but its HR, payroll, and benefits teams experienced too many restrictions to effectively handle increasing expansion.

“We were very frustrated with the limited capabilities of the service bureau, and our multiple interfaces did not ‘talk’ to each other. Plus, we have been acquiring new companies, and the disparate processes that we had been using could not support our growth. Our work was way too manually intensive,” said Aurora Smith, payroll supervisor at Octapharma Plasma. “We went live with UltiPro in July 2012 as our single, unified solution for our HCM, and right away we were able to reduce administration, deliver time savings, and increase productivity for our teams.”

One primary business advantage that Octapharma Plasma has experienced is the real-time reporting and strategic analytics that are delivered with UltiPro’s business intelligence capabilities. Octapharma Plasma’s teams can instantly pull data across all areas of HCM—HR, payroll, time and attendance, compensation, recruitment, compliance, year-end, and more—to create, modify, and distribute workforce-related reports and notifications. Because the security in UltiPro’s end-to-end platform is unified, Octapharma Plasma does not have to maintain multiple security systems. Executives, managers, and HR-related teams view only the reports they are authorized to access based on specific security profiles.
