WESTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that Genesee & Wyoming, the owner and lessor of more than 120 freight railroads worldwide, selected UltiPro as its comprehensive HCM solution to meet key business needs and enhance areas such as payroll, reporting, and talent acquisition.
Genesee & Wyoming subsidiaries employ 7,500 people across North America, Australia, and Europe. The company recognized that a global HCM solution would supply managers with a new level of business intelligence and give employees an easy and accessible user experience. After completing a software review, Genesee & Wyoming evaluated and selected UltiPro in December 2015.
“We selected UltiPro because the solution aligns with our needs as a global business,” said Mary Ellen Russell, Genesee & Wyoming’s Chief Human Resource Officer. “For instance, we can elevate the level of strategic planning in HR with enterprise-wide workforce analytics that help us project future hiring needs and enhance our worldwide talent management process.”
Genesee & Wyoming is eager not only to use UltiPro’s workforce analytics but also the solution’s unified suite of HCM functionality to improve HR operations and simplify HR transactions for both employees and the HR team.
“With UltiPro, we will be able to manage our payroll and HR with speed and accuracy, having just one system of record for the employee data that spans our entire workforce,” said Russell. “In addition, UltiPro Time and Attendance can help us manage the unique labor requirements of our business, including monitoring shifts and avoiding coverage gaps.”
“UltiPro’s HCM is ideal for a company like Genesee & Wyoming because it is accessible to employees regardless of location and can provide centralized reporting for strategic decision making,” said Greg Swick, global chief sales officer at Ultimate. “We are glad to partner with Genesee & Wyoming and help the company achieve its people and business goals.”
