WESTON, Fla. -- December 19, 2012

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people
management solutions, announced today that the Deborah Heart and Lung Center,
ranked among the top hospitals in the U.S. for patient satisfaction by the
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), has selected the UltiPro
solution to unify HR, payroll, and talent management in one easy-to-use cloud

New Jersey-based Deborah Heart and Lung Center focuses exclusively on cardiac,
vascular, and lung disease using state-of-the-art technology and care. Like
most healthcare systems, the organization has complex HCM requirements, and
executives wanted a unified solution that could seamlessly handle the scope of
its people management. After an extensive evaluation process by department
leaders across the organization, the company selected Ultimate Software’s
UltiPro in October 2012 because of the cloud solution’s comprehensive HCM
functionality and easy-to-use technology.

“We have been using many disparate ‘best-of-breed’ systems—payroll, HR,
recruitment, performance management, and timekeeping—that all had to be kept
in sync,” said James F. Carlino, SPHR, CCP, vice president of human resources,
CHRO at the Deborah Heart and Lung Center. “We were clearly impressed with the
UltiPro solution—a single HCM platform with an intuitive user interface,
advanced functionality, and cloud technology that will empower our managers
and staff with greater access and control over important information that is
relevant to them.”

Other unique advantages of cloud-based UltiPro include central business rules
across multiple areas of HCM; centralized workflow among HR, payroll,
benefits, and talent management; cohesive reporting for strategic business
intelligence; seamless sign-on with ‘sticky’ user preferences; flexible
enterprise integration tools; and the ability to handle complex payroll
processing, a particularly valuable asset for healthcare organizations.

“With UltiPro, we can eliminate a great deal of manual intervention that had
to occur when moving data among disparate systems. Our teams can save time on
administrative tasks and deliver a better user experience for our managers and
employees,” said Carlino. “Plus, we will be able to focus our limited
resources on more strategic initiatives, critically assess the range of our
human capital processes, and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our
efforts so that our employees and our overall organization will benefit.”

“Healthcare organizations have very complex HR and payroll requirements, and
one of UltiPro’s many business benefits is allowing companies to centralize
and integrate all of their employee master data rather than using multiple
databases. In addition to faster, more accurate processes for people
management, immediate results with unified HCM include control, flexibility,
cross-organizational efficiencies, instant access to information, and rapid
return on investment,” said Greg Swick, chief sales officer at Ultimate
Software. “Healthcare organizations provide tremendous support to our
communities, and we are very pleased that our technology can add important
business value to organizations in this vital industry. We look forward to
helping the Deborah Heart and Lung Center achieve the full range of business
benefits that our longtime healthcare customers are already realizing.”
