Vancouver Aquarium Selects Ultimate Software’s UltiPro
WESTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre, a self-supporting, non-profit society dedicated to effecting the conservation of aquatic life, has selected UltiPro to consolidate its HR systems and information while taking action to support corporate sustainability goals.
One of Vancouver's top attractions and Canada's largest aquarium, the Vancouver Aquarium was using disparate systems for its payroll, recruitment, and talent management in addition to a manual system for time management — creating inefficiencies and reporting challenges. After discovering several of the systems the organization had been using were acquired by another vendor, the human resources team took action and selected UltiPro in January 2012.
“We are excited to use UltiPro’s complete HR feature set, which has such an intuitive look and feel,” said Lori Howe, vice president of human resources. “With such a diverse workforce, we needed a system that everyone in our organization could leverage and wanted to use, that would be easily accessible. UltiPro met all of our needs.”
As an organization that is completely dedicated to the natural environment, the Vancouver Aquarium strives for sustainable practices and plans to take steps toward additional gains with UltiPro.
“Since the adoption of our Environmental Management System (EMS) — a framework for managing our environmental performance based on the International Standard ISO 14001 — in 2009, we are committed to significantly reducing our environmental impact,” said Howe. “UltiPro allows us to reduce our use of paper by automating a number of our current manual processes, which is just one more benefit with the system.”
“We're extremely proud to help our customers achieve their goals and are pleased to support their sustainable practices,” said Greg Swick, chief sales officer at Ultimate Software. “We have many success stories from leading companies who have been leveraging UltiPro to contribute to green initiatives, and we’re pleased to add The Vancouver Aquarium to our family of customers.”
