A leading provider of unified human capital management (HCM) SaaS (News - Alert) solutions for global businesses, Ultimate Software recently announced that Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company has selected the UltiPro platform to achieve long-term strategies for its business. Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company is a hotel management and development company that has a portfolio which includes more than 80 hotels in 20 states in the U.S. and two provinces in Canada.
In a release, Debra Punke, VP of human resources at Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company said that, “Previously, our company had a slow-moving manual machine for our HR-related operations as well as a decentralized approach with nearly 80 individual business units that were processing payroll. As we researched a range of applications, we discovered many systems were undercut by integration issues and a lack of sophisticated capabilities. Because Concord has a vision of aggressive growth, we realized our business needed an agile, centralized technology platform for people management, and if we were going to accomplish our objectives without adding resources and expenses, we needed the best possible HCM solution.”
Punke went on to say that, “After we completed our analysis of companies that could provide the right functionality and flexibility for our business models in the U.S. and Canada, it became very clear that UltiPro provides the right HCM technology to drive our results. We are very impressed with UltiPro, and Ultimate confirmed its reputation as a forward-thinking company—progressive, nimble, and very responsive. We are a fast-paced company, and Ultimate’s teams are always testing, validating, and thinking ahead for adjustments that will be best for our business. Our selection team noticed immediately that for years Ultimate has been delivering the technology that other providers were promising to do in the future. Plus, Ultimate’s culture felt very similar to our own—innovative and cutting-edge. We’re so excited to be part of the Ultimate family.”
In October 2010, Ultipro was chosen by Vancouver City Savings Credit Union (Vancity), the largest credit union in English-speaking Canada with 414,000 members and $14 billion in assets, to elevate the employee experience and streamline its HCM functions.
