WESTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of unified human capital management SaaS solutions for global businesses, today announced that Revlon, Inc. (NYSE: REV) has implemented UltiPro as its exclusive HCM system of record for the company’s U.S.-based operations. Revlon is a global leader in color cosmetics, hair color, beauty tools, fragrance, skincare and anti-perspirants/deodorants.
After two decades of using a heavily customized in-house system, Revlon needed a state-of-the-art HCM solution that could deliver end-to-end capabilities. Revlon selected UltiPro for its speed of deployment, business intelligence and reporting tools, full span of roles-based, configurable HCM features, and SaaS delivery model.
“Ultimate has more than lived up to its stellar 20-year reputation in the tech industry,” said Jeannie Derr, Vice President of Shared Services for Revlon, Inc. “With UltiPro, our employee information is unified across a single platform, and our teams and resources are free from being so painstakingly involved. We have the ability to access real-time reporting information for our U.S. employee population, and we no longer need to worry about maintaining hardware. But most importantly, we have an incredibly responsive team at Ultimate that is open to our feedback, making our partnership all the more effective and efficient.”
UltiPro’s business intelligence tools, including its intuitive and easy-to-navigate report builder and fields, provide Revlon with quick access to reporting and workforce analytics. Revlon can also make immediate adjustments to address changes that impact its employee-centric operations—from adding a job code to even adding a new company. UltiPro’s Web-based features provide employees with the ability to access their personal HR, payroll, and benefits information from home or off-site locations.
Revlon leadership was particularly drawn to UltiPro’s highly configurable solution that requires few, if any, alterations. Shortly after activating UltiPro, the company pulled in 22 years of payroll history, amounting to 55,000 employee records—a task that would have required many customizations. With UltiPro, this project was completed without making any alterations. Revlon is also taking advantage of UltiPro’s sophisticated SaaS delivery. This cloud-based technology removes the responsibility of maintaining expensive-to-maintain on-premise hardware because Ultimate manages the solution in its secured data centers.
“Staying ahead of fast-changing trends is vital for businesses like Revlon. Traditional HCM applications frequently require rigid processes that can make change difficult,” said Greg Swick, chief sales officer for Ultimate. “UltiPro frees customers from the restrictions of traditional on-premise systems by fully handling a diverse range of payroll complexities, adapting to unique business processes, and enabling changes without adding to IT expenses.”
