Software (Nasdaq:ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people
management solutions, announced today that INNOVIM, LLC, a leading
science systems engineering firm that provides a range of services to
government organizations, is benefiting from unified human capital
management (HCM), collaborative performance management, and responsive
customer service since leveraging the UltiPro solution.
Founded in 2003, INNOVIM
is a satellite data company that uses high technology to create
innovative big data and mobile computing solutions for organizations
such as NASA and NOAA. Previously, INNOVIM had been using a payroll
service bureau, but experienced a range of limitations during rapid
expansion - having quadrupled its number of employees in recent years.
Company leadership identified that the organization needed a single-source
solution for its human capital management that would enhance the
employee and manager experience; accelerate processes for HR, payroll,
benefits, and time management; and support strategic goals related to
talent acquisition and performance management. INNOVIM went live on
cloud-based UltiPro in January 2013.
"Having all of our HCM in one solution is a huge win for our business.
We have consolidated our people-related information; our employees and
managers are quickly
finding relevant information on payroll, benefits, or time; and
our HR/payroll team is enjoying more control and flexibility, especially
when having to manage the volume that comes with growth," said Michael
Kramer, vice president of talent management at INNOVIM.
"The greatest strategic benefit with UltiPro for us is speed. We're a
government contractor, and we now can respond to our customers' needs as
quickly as they want us to. For example, we could be awarded a contract
on a Friday afternoon, and we are expected to have employees
hired, onboarded, and ready on Monday. Amazingly, UltiPro
nables us to make this happen. Our customers are frequently thrilled at
how fast we can fulfill their requirements and, as a result, we have a
competitive advantage over other businesses like ours."
Keeping high-quality talent also gives companies a competitive edge,
according to Kramer. With UltiPro's solutions for talent management,
INNOVIM is developing its people and fostering higher levels of
collaboration among employees and managers. UltiPro supports continuous
performance management, helping companies like INNOVIM track employee
performance objectives with overall business strategies, and
recognize and reward its top performers.
"We have moved from a process of annual reviews to an interactive,
ongoing experience between managers and employees," said Kramer.
"Employees are actively engaged in their own development because they
can set up their own goals, provide frequent updates on their progress,
highlight their accomplishments, and get guidance and comments from both
managers and peers. One of the biggest benefits with UltiPro is that it
raises the accountability of our managers. It is a way to support
relationships among teams and show that managers care about their
In addition to connecting employee performance with overall business
strategy, Kramer also has seen value in relying on Ultimate's responsive
team of support services. Ultimate views its customers as 'partners' and
considers exceptional customer service and two-way communication as
essential elements for business success.
"The partnership with Ultimate Software has been a very positive
experience. We have so much volume and activity that supports our
business, our employees, and our customers - and frequently it all needs
to be completed at the same time. This is where Ultimate's support
services have been an immense help to our business," said Kramer. "Our
business is constantly evolving, and having a personal, consistent
relationship with our customer support rep and other members of
Ultimate' s customer success teams means we have expert guidance from
people we trust. With their help, we are developing effective
strategies, maximizing the use of our HCM technology, and performing at
much higher levels."
"Having workforce information in one central, unified solution provides
tremendous business benefits - whether it's immediate access from
anywhere; cohesive real-time reporting; or
instant, in-depth analysis for strategic decision-making,"
said Chris Phenicie, chief sales officer at Ultimate Software. "With
UltiPro, dynamic businesses like INNOVIM can more effectively handle
rapid expansion as well as support its employees, overall business, and
even its own customers. We're very pleased that UltiPro is playing a
pivotal role in INNOVIM's continued success."
