Healthcare Network Chooses Software for Unified Human Capital Management

Jan. 6, 2010

WESTON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ultimate Software (Nasdaq:ULTI), a leading provider of end-to-end strategic human resources, payroll, and talent management solutions, announced today that McLaren Health Care Corporation, recognized as one of the top integrated healthcare networks in the nation with approximately 13,000 employees in more than 135 locations, selected UltiPro—including its HR, payroll, recruitment, onboarding, performance management, and learning management functionality—delivered through Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), in September 2009.

Because McLaren Health Care grew through mergers and acquisitions, it inherited a combination of different HR and payroll services, solutions, and databases to manage its workforce in hospitals and specialty care centers throughout 18 different counties. After experiencing so many disparate systems, the HR team decided it needed one unified HCM solution with more sophisticated functionality to help standardize their business processes.

In addition to selecting UltiPro for comprehensive, centralized human capital management (HCM) through convenient Web-based SaaS, McLaren’s senior management chose UltiPro to increase access to information, improve reporting, boost efficiencies, and leverage the business intelligence tools that UltiPro offers to provide strategic analytics for forecasting and trend monitoring.

“Our goal is to provide excellence in health services, and to achieve that objective, we need to manage employee-centric functions as efficiently and effectively as possible,” said Michael McMullen, corporate HRIS manager for McLaren Health Care. “Our rapid growth has created an extensive healthcare network, and we are excited to now have the tools to unify and enhance all of our human capital-related processes.”
