Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of HCM solutions, announced today that the company was named on this year's InformationWeek Elite 100 — a list of the top business technology innovators in the U.S. In addition to Ultimate, other companies recognized on the list include Boeing, UPS, Allstate, PayPal, CVS Health, and Avnet.

Ultimate was selected for the InformationWeek Elite100 for its innovative approach to corporate IT services, including the development of TechSpot and InfoSpot, two technologies designed to make it easier and simpler to get information technology assistance and support.

"Ultimate's corporate mission is to put people first, and this philosophy starts with our employees," said Adam Rogers, chief technology officer of Ultimate Software. "Our company dramatically reimagined its approach to providing optimal service and delivery to Ultimate's more than 2,500 employees with these two new innovations in our IT delivery. Ultimate Software is honored to be ranked by InformationWeek Elite 100 as one of the nation's top business innovators for providing our workforce improved access to technology support."

"Gone are the days IT could run as an entity unto itself. If IT isn't part of product development, or marketing, or customer service, your company risks falling behind in the era of digital business. At InformationWeek, we talk about this as 'IT Without Borders,' as we see the best IT leaders tearing down traditional borders to help every department leverage technologies such as data analytics, cloud, and mobility. The 2015 InformationWeek Elite 100 spotlights companies at which IT is not only inseparable from every department, it's pivotal to every customer experience," said InformationWeek Editor Chris Murphy.

This is InformationWeek's 27th year identifying and honoring the nation's most innovative users of information technology. The InformationWeek Elite 100 research tracks the technology-based investments, strategies, and results of some of the best-known organizations in the country. Unique among corporate rankings, the InformationWeek Elite 100 spotlights the power of business technology innovation.
