WESTON, Fla., Dec. 27 / Ultimate Software ULTI, a leading provider of Web-based payroll and employee management solutions, announced that Omni Hotels, a four-diamond, luxury hospitality chain, selected UltiPro Web and UltiPro HRMS/Payroll for payroll, benefits and employee management in September of this year and is currently in the process of implementing the solution.


Omni Hotels has used Ultimate Software's UltiPro's DOS-based application for a number of years and knew the company could be relied upon for exceptional service. According to Paul Dietzler, vice president of information technology and finance at Omni Hotels, "There was never a question of researching other vendors. We knew that the Web-based self-service UltiPro Web would enable us to communicate more effectively with employees in our 40 locations and give our executives easy access to reporting on employee metrics at these locations. More importantly, beyond functionality, we knew from experience that Ultimate Software would provide us great ongoing product support."

"We have a solid reputation for operating our hotels on precision, cost-efficiency and real-time response to guests' needs," said Dietzler. "With UltiPro, we are simply extending these same principles beyond the front desk and into our back office operations. Having a fully integrated payroll and employee management solution lets us unlock the value of our employee information at the property and chain levels, so that each manager can make more informed business decisions."

The combination of UltiPro HRMS/Payroll and UltiPro Web puts critical employee records and dynamic business intelligence tools on the desktops of upper level executives and managers. Omni Hotel managers will have the ability to track such important workforce metrics and trends as employee turnover, overtime containment, recruitment effectiveness and employee efficiency on a real-time basis. In addition, with UltiPro, employees at all properties will have instant Web access to review relevant company and personal information for answers to standard questions or to accomplish such activities as updating their benefits choices during open enrollment – all without calling the HR department.

"We are happy to see our relationship with Omni Hotels continuing to strengthen," said Scott Scherr, CEO, president and founder of Ultimate Software. "Our newer UltiPro solutions add greater business value and, at the same time, maintain the same level of quality and reliability."
