Ultimate Software (Nasdaq:ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc., a 1,600-person engineering and design consulting firm with more than 60 offices across the U.S., has selected the UltiPro solution to provide the company with in-depth workforce analytics, strategic HCM capabilities, and quality customer service.
Kimley-Horn provides planning and design consulting services related to transportation, aviation, the environment, land development, transit, urban planning/landscape architecture, and water resources. Because it is a government contractor, the firm needs to quickly extract accurate details about its workforce and talent management processes through strategic business intelligence and day-to-day reporting. With complex business requirements for detailed information gathering and analysis, Kimley-Horn’s HR and finance teams decided to replace the payroll service bureau and HR system it has been using with a human capital management solution that included a comprehensive HR feature set, strong payroll engine, and extensive real-time reporting capabilities. Kimley-Horn chose UltiPro in December 2011.
“It is essential for our business to have a comprehensive HCM solution that handles the entire employee life cycle and that comes with flexible real-time reporting for our HR team, executives, and managers,” said Jessica Harris, financial analyst at Kimley-Horn. “UltiPro will help us better manage our reporting requirements as well as help us more effectively and efficiently recruit and cultivate a workforce that is focused on growing our business.”
Having been ranked among FORTUNE’s Top 100 Best Companies to Work For for six of the last eight years, Kimley-Horn also appreciates Ultimate’s focus on relationships and corporate culture. According to Harris, Ultimate’s people-first philosophy resonated with Kimley-Horn’s executives because they understand the impact that employee satisfaction has on customer service.
“We are very excited about our business partnership with Ultimate Software. When we visited Ultimate, we could feel the energy that we frequently heard about the company,” said Harris. “Ultimate’s employees are positive, high-performing, and engaged, which speaks volumes about the company overall.”
“Ultimate Software’s exclusive focus is on human capital management, so we work hard to ‘walk the talk’ by delivering people management processes and technology that put people first. We’re excited to have a business relationship with an organization that also has a deep passion for happy, engaged employees,” said Greg Swick, chief sales officer at Ultimate Software. “We’re very pleased to welcome Kimley-Horn to Ultimate Software’s family of customers, and we’re looking forward to a long-standing partnership that will support its overall business.”
