Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that Warren Equipment Company, an organization providing products and services to the oil and gas, power generation, construction, and agricultural industries, has selected UltiPro® for its breadth of human resource and payroll capabilities to enhance HR service to managers and improve workforce analytics.

Founded in 1971 and with employees in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Colorado, and New Mexico, Warren Equipment Company is composed of Warren CAT, Ignition Systems & Controls, SITECH Texoma, and PSP. Using a payroll service bureau that did not address most of their HCM needs prior to UltiPro, the HR team at Warren Equipment Company had faced many redundancies and inefficiencies, diverting time and money away from their core business. Their goal was to find one comprehensive HCM solution that would bring strategic gains to employees and managers dispersed throughout many locations.

“Our managers have been working at a huge disadvantage because they have had to rely on multiple processes and solutions for HR,” said Brian Gee, senior HR manager at Warren Equipment Company Companies. “After we first started speaking with Ultimate Software, it quickly became very apparent that no other single product on the market could provide us with the range of functionality that UltiPro can. We felt that the other products were more ‘cookie-cutter’—part of a huge machine that tried to fit our company into their product line. With Ultimate, we know that we have a partner who understands our needs and has a comprehensive yet flexible solution that is the perfect fit for our organization.”

With UltiPro, Warren Equipment Company will have a solution for managing all its people-related processes—from recruitment to retirement—including HR, payroll, and talent management, giving managers the convenience and added efficiency of one system of record to manage all workforce information.

“Because UltiPro offers everything we need on a single platform, our HR team can focus on providing quality service not only to our managers, but to our employees as well,” noted Gee. “With UltiPro, Warren Equipment Company will have a single ‘go-to’ place for all of our human resources needs. We look forward to having more time to spend on recruiting, developing, and retaining the talent we need to achieve our business strategies.”

In addition to operational efficiencies, reporting and analytics were a key factor in Warren Equipment Company’s selection of UltiPro. Having had to rely on multiple systems for analysis in the past, the company has not had 24/7 direct access to workforce-related data. UltiPro pulls data across all areas of HCM, giving managers the information they need to make more strategic workforce decisions. UltiPro’s reporting and business intelligence capabilities will enable Warren Equipment Company to gain complete visibility and actionable insight into their entire workforce.

“Currently, when our executive management team asks for reports, I need to manually pull data off of several systems, compile our findings, and check for errors. This is incredibly time-consuming and inefficient. With UltiPro’s real-time reporting, I look forward to being able to have information at my fingertips at all times in order to make sound decisions to increase our productivity,” said Gee. “We looked for a solution that could help us provide the right information to the right people at the right time. UltiPro will enable managers and employees alike to conveniently access and update data when needed. That is a big win for us.”

While the depth and breadth of the UltiPro solution was a driving factor in the selection, Warren Equipment Company also considered partnership and cultural alignment with Ultimate as major factors.

“With our previous vendor, our company had many service reps come and go, and it seemed their focus was not on meeting our needs. We view Ultimate as a true business partner that cares about our people and our business. All of the functionality we need to succeed will be delivered with one solution, backed by a customer service team that is responsive, knowledgeable, and dedicated to our success.”

“I believe that your customer satisfaction will never exceed the satisfaction of your employees,” said Gee. “With Ultimate, I know we have a shared commitment in taking care of one another. I have never met an unhappy Ultimate employee. When my director toured headquarters and received a card about Ultimate’s commitment to customer trust, we knew that there was something significant behind that. I believe that the extraordinary customer care we have received with Ultimate is indicative of their core values, and I know that Warren Equipment Company has found a great partner.”

“We’re delighted to welcome Warren Equipment Company to the Ultimate circle of customers,” said Greg Swick, chief sales officer at Ultimate Software. “UltiPro offers a complete solution for HR, payroll, and talent management that can bring new levels of efficiency and employee service to this very successful company. With the exceptional user experience and customer service that are characteristic of the Ultimate Software experience, Warren Equipment Company can achieve optimal results across their business.”
