Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that two companies in the healthcare services industry—Intralign Health and Daybreak Group—have selected the cloud-based UltiPro solution to enhance their processes for human capital management (HCM). A highly regulated industry with complex HCM requirements, the healthcare industry has a wide variety of challenges related to people management. For example, when supporting employees who have diverse backgrounds, education, skills, and experience, healthcare companies need HCM technology that provides end users with easy-to-use capabilities. To monitor changing workforce demographics as well as manage reporting and audit requirements, healthcare organizations also need a single solution to house employee data that is accessible to HR, leaders, and managers who are in multiple locations. Changes can occur rapidly and unexpectedly, and as a result, companies need customer and support services that are responsive and can quickly address their needs. One Unified Solution Arizona-based Intralign Health provides a portfolio of integrated services that help hospitals create efficiencies in the intra-operative space through clinical support, actionable data systems, and process re-design. The company had been using multiple service bureaus to handle its HR and payroll operations, but the disparate systems often created an assortment of business challenges, particularly company reporting and tracking. Executives wanted to synchronize its HCM in one unified, centralized solution, and in August 2013, Intralign Health chose UltiPro. “Because of its cloud delivery, UltiPro will provide our company with an affordable solution that requires minimal IT support and spend on our internal resources. Even better is that all the HCM functionality is delivered in one unified suite, which will bring significant advantages to our operations,” said Lars Thording, Vice President of Marketing and Public Affairs at Intralign Health. “In addition to the business benefits that will come with one system of record for our HCM, UltiPro also will deliver cohesive, standardized reporting as well as give our teams the flexibility to configure the solution to meet our unique business requirements.”
Higher Levels of Customer SupportDaybreak Group provides a wide array of home- and community-based services to individuals with developmental disabilities. Since its inception over 17 years ago, Daybreak has experienced rapid growth, providing services to more than 1,100 people throughout Texas in approximately 158 group homes, individual homes, foster care settings, and day habilitation sites. Daybreak Group had been using another cloud provider for its HCM, but ongoing issues with customer support spurred executives to search for a tenured HCM provider with a solid track record of exemplary customer support and retention. The healthcare organization evaluated Ultimate Software’s cloud technology and support services, and then chose UltiPro in July 2013. “The primary decision drivers in switching to Ultimate were its outstanding customer service, the ongoing development and innovation with its cloud technology, and its active, engaged customer user groups,” said Judy Brannen, HR director at the Daybreak Group. “With Ultimate, we will have direct lines of communication to our service representatives and quick access to customer support for anything we may need, even after business hours. Overall, this level of support means we can put full focus on supporting our expanding business rather than having to manage the system and related problems that could surface. Plus, we’re very excited about having a user-friendly, easy-to-manage technology for our HCM.” “Leveraging a best-in-class HCM technology from a trusted provider can empower healthcare companies to easily handle industry challenges, better manage a diverse employee population, streamline complex manual processes, and strategically plan for the future,” said Chris Phenicie, chief sales officer of the mid-market at Ultimate Software. “With UltiPro, employees and managers can access their data from anywhere, data is consolidated into one system of record, and unique business requirements can be easily handled. We look forward to adding Intralign Health and Daybreak Group to our expanding circle of healthcare organizations that are experiencing increased efficiency, productivity, and business improvements since leveraging UltiPro.” About Ultimate Software Ultimate is a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, with more than 14 million people records in the cloud.
