Innovative Transportation Company Leverages Ultimate Software’s UltiPro for Unified HCM, Enhanced Employee Experience

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that vRide, a leader in providing alternative transportation solutions for commuters, is benefiting from UltiPro’s unified solutions for human capital management (HCM), person-centric user experience, and exceptional customer support.

For over 30 years, vRide has been providing a ride-sharing platform that offers commuters cost-efficient, eco-friendly transportation to and from work. Prior to UltiPro, the company had been using multiple methods to handle its operations for HR, payroll, and talent management. However, to better support its overall business, executives wanted a single, unified HCM solution that would include rich capabilities for HR, benefits enrollment, time management, compensation management, onboarding, performance management, and global HCM. In December 2013, vRide went live on Ultimate Software’s UltiPro solution.

“There are a multitude of reasons why we made the switch to UltiPro. Our HR team likes the expanded functionality, especially related to strategic talent management, and of course, having one HCM solution simplifies our work by eliminating manual processes and related reconciliation,” said Mark Buzby, director of HR systems & reporting at vRide.

“Plus, UltiPro is very easy to use because Ultimate clearly has the end user in mind when designing the system and interface. Our employees enjoy the convenience, instant access to info, and 24-7 availability; and as result, we have seen a high adoption rate among our associates.”

Ultimate’s cloud technology is providing vRide with one system of record to manage all of its people-related data. With single-solution HCM, the company is experiencing improved efficiencies through centralized workforce information; fast and extensive reporting and analysis; increased time savings; reduced systems maintenance; as well as industry-leading security and disaster recovery.

In addition to improving business results with UltiPro’s capabilities, vRide also cites Ultimate’s support services as a primary advantage.

“One of the main factors in our decision to move to UltiPro was Ultimate’s excellent customer support,” said Buzby. “We now have a single service representative who takes care of our company. Our teams have direct, immediate access to our support representative, and even if we need attention after business hours, we can still contact Ultimate’s support teams to help us. In addition to better technology with Ultimate, we are relying on a high level of customer care.”

“It’s great news when we partner with dynamic companies like vRide. This organization understands how the best technologies are ones that are designed to engage people and help them work better,” said Chris Phenicie, chief sales officer at Ultimate Software. “UltiPro’s unified HCM is delivered in one consistent, easy-to-manage, easy-to-use solution, and we often hear from our customers that UltiPro is technology that their people want to use. We’re very pleased that vRide is benefiting from our sophisticated HCM functionality as well as our responsive customer services.”
