NetSuite Names Ultimate Software Worldwide Partner of the Year and SuiteCloud Partner of the Year

Date: May 24, 2016 10:00 AM EDT

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that it was selected as NetSuite’s 2016 Worldwide Partner of the Year and 2016 SuiteCloud Partner of the Year. This is the second year that Ultimate has been recognized by NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N) as one of its leading partners; in 2015 Ultimate was named NetSuite’s SuiteCloud Enterprise Partner of the Year. NetSuite Inc. is the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials/enterprise resource planning (ERP) and omnichannel commerce software suites.

The Worldwide Partner of the Year is the highest honor that is awarded to a NetSuite partner across all partner types, SuiteCloud Developer Network (SDN), Global System Integrators (GSI), and Solution Providers (SP), for sales, overall client satisfaction, quality of delivery, and commitment to the partnership.

The SuiteCloud Partner of the Year Award honors a NetSuite partner that assists joint customers in transforming and growing their businesses. NetSuite and Ultimate Software announced a strategic alliance in March 2015 to integrate the UltiPro HCM solution and the NetSuite ERP suite, giving businesses the ability to manage their entire business lifecycle—from financials, supply chain, and customer relationship management (CRM); to payroll, HR, and talent management—through two of the industry’s leading cloud solutions.

By connecting UltiPro’s rich HR, talent, and payroll capabilities to NetSuite’s suite of cloud ERP applications, Ultimate and NetSuite can offer businesses the ability to manage their entire spectrum of business technology needs through two of the most trusted cloud vendors in the world—without requiring point solutions for different business applications.

Over the past year, the alliance between Ultimate and NetSuite has delivered integration between the two solutions, mutual lead exchange and referral, joint marketing campaigns, sales partnership, and participation in customer and prospect events. Ultimate has also achieved ‘Built for NetSuite’ status in 2015. Both the NetSuite and Ultimate teams have dedicated resources focused on ensuring a committed and mutually successful alliance.

“The combination of Ultimate’s robust HCM functionality together with NetSuite’s system of record for core operational processes can provide our customers with a tightly integrated solution to run the core aspects of their business,” said Zach Nelson, NetSuite CEO. “We’re giving businesses of all sizes enterprise-class functionality, with the flexibility, scalability, and agility of the cloud. This alliance is helping our joint customers succeed. There is clearly strong market demand for our solution integration and we’re extremely pleased with the success of this partnership over the past year.”

“Strong partnerships are about more than just announcements and delivering technology integration. They’re about working together to raise awareness, identify customer needs for the partner solutions, and assist in educating customers and prospects on the value of seamless integration between best-in-class cloud solutions,” said Scott Scherr, founder and CEO of Ultimate. “We’re honored that NetSuite has chosen to recognize us as their Worldwide Partner of the Year and SuiteCloud Partner of the Year. We look forward to continuing our relationship and bringing value to additional joint customers in the years to come.”

NetSuite presented Ultimate with the award during the 2016 SuiteWorld Conference in San Jose, CA on May 16th. For more information about the NetSuite Partner awards, read press release here.
