No missed payrolls during 8-day HQ power outage

Elizabeth Arden’s headquarters in Miami, Florida were impacted by a hurricane in 2005 — leaving the area damaged, roads littered with debris, and powerlines down. The region’s lack of electricity and potable water forced the office to close.


• Because of Ultimate’s cloud technology, Elizabeth Arden’s teams could securely log into UltiPro, and the company’s employee management and payroll teams were able to easily manage HR and payroll processes off-site.

• The company gained far greater control over processes, cohesive functionality, and 24-7, real-time access to current employee data and reporting.

Service was never interrupted because the UltiPro solution is housed off-site in Ultimate Software’s hardened data center where essential information is protected from fires, natural disasters, power outages, sabotage, or theft.
