National Organization Improves Employee Satisfaction with UltiPro for Human Capital Management
Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital
management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that Lewis Tree
Service, one of the largest providers of vegetation management services,
is using UltiPro to achieve substantial cost and time savings and
improve employee access to HR information.
Based in Rochester, New York, Lewis Tree Service provides vegetation
management services to utilities. The company's nearly 3,500 employees
are distributed across 26 states. Prior to UltiPro, Lewis Tree Service
used a paper-intensive solution that lacked the functionality and
storage space to support the company's growing business. Lewis Tree
Service went live on UltiPro in October 2011, and shifted to a paperless
operation that enhanced the employee experience.
"The elimination of paper from our weekly payroll alone-stamps, stuffing
envelopes, printing paychecks-has saved us close to $70,000 per year,"
said JoAnn Zaccardo, director of human resources for Lewis Tree Service.
"In addition, we have created enormous time savings by using the UltiPro
Carrier Network to automate the entire process of moving benefits
information across the organization, something that used to require
paper transfers from the field to headquarters to our insurance
UltiPro's anywhere, anytime access is making an impact on Lewis Tree
Service at headquarters and in the field. Zaccardo reports that UltiPro
is helping to decrease distractions for the company's grounds people,
trimmers, crew leaders, and general foremen.
"Because the vast majority of our people work in the field, UltiPro's
mobile role-based access to personal information has transformed our
employees' relationship with HR," said Zaccardo. "While many of our
employees don't own a computer, almost all of them can access UltiPro
through their smartphone to retrieve pay details, update personal
information, and even complete the process for new-employee enrollment
and benefits. UltiPro removes many administrative burdens from our
hard-working, safety-conscious employees so they can be focused on their
Although UltiPro has already helped Lewis Tree Service achieve many of
its goals for people operations, the company is enthusiastic about
UltiPro's ability to address its future needs with ongoing innovation
focused on helping companies put their employees first.
"I have complete confidence in Ultimate to stay on top of developments
in human resources, from policy changes to process improvements," said
Zaccardo. "Ultimate's focus on continually providing the best HCM
solution gives me very valuable peace of mind."
"UltiPro's ability to streamline HCM operations delivers significant
value to enterprise organizations with many employees who don't work
behind a desk," said Greg Swick, global chief sales officer at Ultimate.
"We are pleased that Lewis Tree Service is experiencing such a
significant return on their UltiPro investment and that the solution is
creating a better experience for the company's employees."
