"As we began reviewing different vendors, UltiPro was the standout—one single solution that could manage the complexity of our business, allow us to consolidate workforce data from multiple solutions, provide real-time, accurate reporting, and reduce the time and effort that has been burdening our teams."

WESTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of unified human capital management SaaS solutions for global businesses, announced today that Cineplex Inc., (“Cineplex”) (TSX:CGX) the largest motion picture exhibitor in Canada, has selected UltiPro® to deliver detailed workforce analytics and reporting, strategic capabilities for HR, and better services for its employees.

Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Cineplex operates theatres from British Columbia to Québec, is the exclusive provider of UltraAVX, and the largest exhibitor of digital, 3D, and IMAX projection technologies in the country. With a workforce of approximately 10,000 employees, Cineplex wanted a state-of-the-art HCM solution that would enable its HR and payroll teams to spend more time enhancing the customer experience and impacting the business with strategic reporting rather than completing administrative tasks or processing data. Cineplex selected UltiPro in August 2011.

“Our HRMS was a legacy system that had limited reporting capabilities, which in turn created redundancies and excess work for our teams,” said Pat Marshall, vice president of communications and investor relations at Cineplex Inc. “As we began reviewing different vendors, UltiPro was the standout—one single solution that could manage the complexity of our business, allow us to consolidate workforce data from multiple solutions, provide real-time, accurate reporting, and reduce the time and effort that has been burdening our teams.”

UltiPro will provide Cineplex with technology that can automatically track all HR-related information, including employment history, performance, job and salary information, career development, and more, for all employees in one global system of record. With UltiPro, HR teams can easily record key information for government compliance and reporting, whether the organization is governed by the Canada Labour Code or provincial/territorial employment standards legislation. UltiPro also helps ensure compliance with federal and provincial privacy legislation by protecting sensitive personal information and data, such as employee social insurance numbers.

“We were looking for more functionality and more automation for our HR team as well as better processes for our entire workforce. UltiPro will provide us with greater control over our data, and our teams can enhance our service offering to employees,” said Marshall. “We continually strive to offer best-in-class service, and UltiPro will strengthen our goals. The ability to provide electronic T4s, pay statements, and employee and manager self-service is very appealing to us.”

“The pace of today’s workplace requires immediate availability of employee information, metrics, and reporting. Businesses can’t afford to wait weeks or even days to answer critical questions on their people. They need technology that gives them insight into workforce trends before issues arise,” said Greg Swick, chief sales officer for Ultimate Software. “With UltiPro, businesses can consolidate, manage, and analyze all of their people-related information in one global system of record. Business results include streamlined efficiencies, strategic capabilities, and increased productivity. We look forward to enhancing Cineplex’s people management and developing a successful long-term partnership.”
