Ultimate's Fall release for UltiPro also includes more than a dozen compliance updates and enhancements to the year-end process. These features make it easier for HR professionals to handle complex year-end processing through a convenient, one-stop "year-end gateway."
"Employees don't compartmentalize their career into areas like 'payroll,' 'performance,' 'development,' or 'succession' - it's all part of one integrated work experience," said Adam Rogers, chief technology officer and senior vice president at Ultimate Software. "The technology revolution in business right now is the merging of separate systems that traditionally served department or functional silos - such as recruitment, payroll, or performance management - into a person-centered solution driven not just by the bottom-line needs of the business, but by the realization that developing a more engaged workforce begins with treating employees as people, helping them get work done every day."
