Leading Sports Entertainment Firm Selects Ultimate Software’s UltiPro For Human Capital Management

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that Legends, a pioneering sports and entertainment company, has selected the cloud-based UltiPro solution for its end-to-end functionality, person-centric technology, and strategic reporting and business intelligence.

New York City-based Legends provides sports team owners and executives, stadium operators, athletic departments, and municipalities with a range of best-in-class services, including hospitality, ticket sales, marketing, merchandising sales, tours, catered events, financial market feasibility services, and more. The company had been using a payroll service bureau to handle its payroll processing, but executives wanted an HCM solution that would deliver comprehensive HCM functionality. Legends chose Ultimate Software’s UltiPro solution in August 2013.

“Our company goals are based on delivering excellence in our business endeavors. We can have over 3,000 active employees at one time, and we want to both support them and build our business with the right technology and services,” said Stephanie Andino, vice president of human resources at Legends. “UltiPro offers the capabilities we need to ensure success for our people-related processes, such as recruiting, onboarding, performance management, global HCM, and more. Our teams now will be able to seamlessly manage the employee lifecycle from recruitment to retirement, including our employees who live or work in international locations.”

The business enhancements with UltiPro include rich capabilities for strategic business intelligence and workforce analytics. Andino and her teams can pull data across all areas of UltiPro — HR, payroll, benefits, compensation, talent management, compliance, year-end, and more — to create, modify, and distribute workforce-related reports and notifications. Based on their specific security profiles, employees can have immediate access to key workforce metrics, analysis, and dashboards.

“We’re very glad that UltiPro is a single-source HCM solution that delivers real-time visibility and insight with user-friendly reporting. The solution will provide us with higher levels of accountability, visibility, and control,” said Andino. “We will be better positioned to make smart, well-informed decisions that impact our overall business. Plus, we really like that we will be able to quickly find information, access UltiPro from wherever we are, and increase our productivity with cohesive reporting and unified HCM.”

“Legends is an impressive organization, with a clear commitment and passion for delivering product and service excellence. Ultimate Software shares this same high-level dedication to our customers,” said Greg Swick, chief sales officer at Ultimate Software. “Our goal is to work closely with our customers like Legends to understand their unique objectives and then deliver best-in-class technology and services that will support and strengthen these goals. We’re pleased that Legends has joined our expanding family of customers, and we look forward to helping this dynamic company drive business results with our comprehensive suite for human capital management.”
