“Ultimate is not just a leader in technology—they are also changing the paradigm in the HCM industry with how a focus on people can grow businesses,” said Debra Punke, SVP of Human Capital for Concord Hotels. “Ultimate continues to innovate its solutions because they know our industry, care about our people, and understand how to support our business. We appreciate the resulting quality of Ultimate’s products and services that elevate our organization every day.”

“We believe this recognition as a Leader for cloud HCM suites validates our commitment to developing innovative technology for managing people by putting people first,” said Scott Scherr, CEO, president, and founder of Ultimate. “Our momentum in the market continues to increase as we launch new solutions that drive a positive employee experience and optimize business decision-making. At the same time, we continuously support our customers not only by delivering services that lead the HCM industry, but also by anticipating how our product design can meet their future needs.”
