Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced recently that Timco Services, a provider of high quality services and tools for a wide variety of customers throughout the petroleum industry, has selected Ultimate Software’s UltiPro Workplace because of the solution’s streamlined people management, scalability, and easy-to-use workforce analytics.
Headquartered in Lafayette, Louisiana, Timco Services, Inc. offers diesel hammers and casing running systems as well as tools for rent for tubular handling. Having added several hundreds of jobs in the last year, and with more expansion planned in the next year, executive leadership realized that the company needed one comprehensive solution for effective people management. Timco Services selected UltiPro Workplace in February 2012.
“We have been handling all of our HR operations by paper, and our payroll processes have been run through an accounting system. In the last year or so, we have tripled our employees and more than doubled our locations, and it’s no longer feasible for us to continue managing HR without the right technology,” says Kevin Credeur, human resources manager at Timco Services, Inc.
“During our analysis of various vendors and technologies, we clearly liked Ultimate’s solution because it is comprehensive, flexible, and easy to use. Plus, Ultimate has a proven history of success, especially with cloud technology. UltiPro can accommodate us as we continue to experience and plan for considerable growth.”
In addition to providing economies of scale to meet business fluctuations or expansions, Ultimate’s cloud delivery provides companies like Timco with a range of business gains, such as increases in efficiency, control, savings, performance, and reliability. A crucial factor in Timco’s decision was that Ultimate Software has led the market in technology innovation with cloud-delivered HCM. Ultimate launched its first cloud solution in 2002, and today the company supports more than seven million person records in itsmulti-tenant SaaS environment.
“UltiPro makes the most sense for our business,” said Credeur. “We like that it is a state-of-the-art solution that is very easy to use for administrators, managers, and employees. With our company’s rapid expansion, our teams will definitely benefit from the cohesive reporting and workforce analytics. We’re ready to take advantage of quicker, more detailed reporting so we can better manage our people, especially related to talent management and payroll.”
“Cloud technology has enabled major advances in HCM, offering tremendous business value to organizations of all sizes and across all industries. But cloud delivery is just the platform—a cloud solution is still only as good as the depth of functionality, configurability, and user experience it delivers,” said Chris Phenicie, chief sales officer for UltiPro Workplace at Ultimate Software. “We’re proud that, after thoroughly evaluating the people management solutions available today, companies like Timco Services recognize Ultimate’s commitment to delivering comprehensive HR, payroll, and talent management tools that have a real impact on business performance.”
