Ultimate Software, a leading global provider of human capital management (HCM) and employee experience solutions in the cloud, announced today that it is a Leader in the Nucleus Research HCM Technology Value Matrix 2019, marking Ultimate’s seventh consecutive year as a Leader, based on Nucleus’ evaluation criteria of product functionality and usability. Ultimate earned the top vendor rating for product functionality and is one of the top two vendors for usability.
Nucleus Research is an independent technology-research firm focused on helping organizations build the financially focused business case for technology. The Nucleus Research HCM Technology Value Matrix 2019 is a comprehensive evaluation of 17 HCM solution providers.
“This report’s recognition of UltiPro as a best-of-breed enterprise solution supports our transformative, ‘People First’ approach to continuous innovation in HCM,” said Adam Rogers, co-CEO and CTO of Ultimate. “By encouraging collaboration between our Product Development and Services teams, we put our customers at the center of our solution design. Our product functionality and usability rely on and incorporate customer ideas, which is reflected in our customer satisfaction and long-term customer loyalty.”
Nucleus Analyst Trevor White stated in the report: “[L]eading vendors are looking to push the envelope of what traditional HCM offerings provide. Over the past several years, vendors have looked to expand the use of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), particularly around reporting and analytics.”
In its report, Nucleus noted that Ultimate customers can take advantage of the way Ultimate’s AI platform Xander provides deep, person-centric AI capabilities to cultivate employee feedback, sentiment analysis, recruiting, and workforce planning. Additionally, Nucleus highlighted the way Ultimate delivers value to its customers, observing that Ultimate does not upcharge customers for advanced reporting and analytics, but rather “includes these capabilities along with a flexible, metadata-driven configuration platform and rules engine to facilitate tailoring the solution to each customer’s needs.”
