Overview

Unifies and more effectively manages its U.S. and Canadian HCMHeadquartered in Minnetonka, Minnesota, AmeriPride’s nearly 6,000 employees are spread across 115 production facilities and service centers throughout the U.S. and Canada. The company provides linen, uniforms, floor mats, and restroom and cleaning products to nearly 150,000 customers every week.

Challenges

Prior to UltiPro, AmeriPride had to rely on completely separate solutions for its U.S. and Canadian payroll, resulting in redundant effort, the need for reconciliation, and data integrity challenges. Canadian employee information was stored on the company’s U.S-based platform, while payroll had to be issued from a different, antiquated system. To address these challenges and improve the employee experience, AmeriPride sought a single consolidated HR and payroll platform for its North American operations, with direct access for employees and managers. The company selected UltiPro as its solution of record and went live in January 2016.
