5,000-Employee Company Manages Complex, Decentralized Payroll with Ultimate Software's UltiPro
WESTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ultimate Software (NAS: ULTI) , a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that Rosen's Diversified Inc. (RDI), a provider of quality agriculture products and the operator of the fifth largest beef processing company in the U.S., is using the cloud-based UltiPro solution to better manage its complex payroll, improve reporting, and streamline benefits management.
An Ultimate Software customer since 2009, RDI was using a mainframe system for its HR and payroll prior to UltiPro. After a merger pushed its employee population from 3,500 to nearly 5,000 employees, HR leadership realized the company had to elevate its processes for human capital management (HCM). With more than a dozen locations — each with its own payroll processing requirements, including the freedom to create unique compensation packages and payroll rules — RDI needed a very robust, flexible solution to handle its business complexities.
"We have 14 locations, and each one functions as an independent entity that may have unions, varying pay rates and bonus structures, and different payroll frequencies, so we needed a technology solution that could handle our unique business requirements," said Trudy Gokey, director of benefits and HRIS at Rosen's Diversified.
"Without a doubt, UltiPro is the best payroll engine available. Now, our payroll is accurate, our business units can keep their own specific compensation strategies, and our teams can generate a range of business reports, determined by security access, on one business unit or on the company as a whole."
With UltiPro, RDI's HR team can gather business intelligence to address issues such as turnover by reason, department, or by any metric stored in UltiPro. Rather than relying on locations to submit data that then had to be manually compiled, was not current, or could have errors, the team can instantly access correct, real-time analytics with UltiPro.
Another source of improved accuracy and efficiency for RDI is UltiPro's feature for benefits open enrollment. Employees can make changes to their benefits during open enrollment, which are then quickly transmitted to benefits providers without manual data entry. With more than 70% of its population speaking other languages, the RDI team also appreciates UltiPro's ease of use. Because UltiPro can easily integrate with other applications or service providers, RDI has automated the transfer of benefits information to and from providers. Results for RDI include a smooth, efficient open enrollment process with increased time and cost savings.
"UltiPro's integration with third-party providers and systems has eliminated days of data entry for our HR teams," said Gokey. "Our HCM solution is accessible to everyone 24-7, and the amount of time UltiPro has saved us has been immense. Now, we can re-focus our efforts where we want them — on our employees."
"The cornerstone of Ultimate Software's HCM technology is to put people first. UltiPro is designed to support the people who use the solution so they can better achieve their organization's business goals," said Greg Swick, chief sales officer at Ultimate Software. "We're very pleased that Rosen's Diversified is experiencing optimal people management with our flexible, powerful technology, and we look forward to evolving UltiPro as this dynamic company continues its expansion."
