30,000-Employee P.F. Chang’s Selects UltiPro® for Human Capital Management

Date: May 12 2009

WESTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE <> )--Ultimate Software (Nasdaq:ULTI), a leading provider of end-to-end strategic human resources, payroll, and talent management solutions, today announced that P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Inc., owner and operator of P.F. Chang’s China Bistro and Pei Wei Asian Diner, has selected UltiPro through Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for comprehensive human capital management (HCM)—including HR, benefits, payroll, recruiting, onboarding, and salary planning and budgeting.

With more than 350 locations and approximately 30,000 employees, P.F. Chang’s found it needed a unified human capital management solution to cost-effectively optimize HR administration while also enabling its People Services team to operate more strategically. After evaluating Ultimate Software’s end-to-end HCM tools and business intelligence capabilities, the company decided to move to UltiPro in February 2009.

“Our initial intent was to find a solution that would deliver process efficiencies, to give our People Services team more time to focus on our employees,” said Eric Niman, Director of HR Administration for P.F. Chang’s. “In UltiPro, we found the process efficiencies we required as well as the intuitive tools that will enhance our employees’ experience. We plan to use these online tools to deliver exceptional service to our employees, while helping People Services effectively manage administrative processes, talent acquisition, and employee performance.”

For businesses with a large workforce, reporting can be challenging — particularly in the hospitality industry where employee demographics are constantly changing. Configurable, easy-to-use reporting is vital to identify trends, address compliance requirements, and rapidly respond to information requests from executives.

“Ultimate’s holistic solution will allow us to consolidate our workforce data from multiple sources into a single solution and quickly access this information for point-in-time analysis,” said Niman. “UltiPro has deep HR functionality and reporting capabilities — combined with a convenient SaaS offering — for strategic gains, enhanced service to employees, and cost savings.”

“UltiPro’s strategic HR functionality, analytical reporting, and SaaS delivery help businesses take their HCM processes to the next level without burdening IT resources, so HR can proactively develop programs to address changing business or industry environments,” said Greg Swick, chief sales officer for Ultimate Software. “We look forward to watching P.F. Chang’s leverage UltiPro to maximize its human capital management operations.”
