Leading Healthcare Organization Selects Ultimate Software's UltiPro for Unified Human Capital Management
WESTON, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people
management solutions, announced today that the Deborah Heart and Lung
Center, ranked among the top hospitals in the U.S. for patient
satisfaction by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS),
has selected the UltiPro solution to unify HR, payroll, and talent
management in one easy-to-use cloud platform.
New Jersey-based Deborah
Heart and Lung Center focuses exclusively on cardiac, vascular,
and lung disease using state-of-the-art technology and care. Like most
healthcare systems, the organization has complex HCM requirements, and
executives wanted a unified solution that could seamlessly handle the
scope of its people management. After an extensive evaluation process by
department leaders across the organization, the company selected Ultimate
Software's UltiPro in October 2012 because of the cloud
solution's comprehensive HCM functionality and easy-to-use technology.
"We have been using many disparate 'best-of-breed' systems-payroll, HR,
recruitment, performance management, and timekeeping-that all had to be
kept in sync," said James F. Carlino, SPHR, CCP, vice president of human
resources, CHRO at the Deborah Heart and Lung Center. "We were clearly
impressed with the UltiPro solution-a single
HCM platform with an intuitive user interface, advanced
functionality, and cloud technology that will empower our managers and
staff with greater access and control over important information that is
relevant to them."
Other unique advantages of cloud-based UltiPro include central business
rules across multiple areas of HCM; centralized workflow among HR,
payroll, benefits, and talen management; cohesive
reporting for strategic business intelligence; seamless sign-on
with 'sticky' user preferences; flexible enterprise integration tools;
and the ability to handle complex payroll processing, a particularly
valuable asset for healthcare organizations.
"With UltiPro, we can eliminate a great deal of manual intervention that
had to occur when moving data among disparate systems. Our teams can
save time on administrative tasks and deliver a better user experience
for our managers and employees," said Carlino. "Plus, we will be able to
focus our limited resources on more strategic initiatives, critically
assess the range of our human capital processes, and improve the
effectiveness and efficiency of our efforts so that our employees and
our overall organization will benefit."
"Healthcare organizations have very complex HR and payroll
requirements, and one of UltiPro's many business benefits is
allowing companies to centralize and integrate all of their employee
master data rather than using multiple databases. In addition to faster,
more accurate processes for people management, immediate results with
unified HCM include control, flexibility, cross-organizational
efficiencies, instant access to information, and rapid return on
investment," said Greg Swick, chief sales officer at Ultimate Software.
"Healthcare organizations provide tremendous support to our communities,
and we are very pleased that our technology can add important business
value to organizations in this vital industry. We look forward to
helping the Deborah Heart and Lung Center achieve the full range of
business benefits that our longtime
healthcare customers are already realizing."
