  Amica Mutual Insurance Selects Ultimate Software’s UltiPro for
  Cloud-Based HR, Payroll, and Talent Management

Business Wire

WESTON, Fla. -- June 21, 2013

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people
management solutions, announced today that Amica Mutual Insurance Co., a
national writer of automobile, homeowners, marine, and liability insurance,
has selected the UltiPro solution to streamline its processes for human
capital management (HCM).

Amica, founded in 1907, employs approximately 3,200 people in 40 offices
across the U.S. The insurance company has been using an enterprise resource
planning (ERP) system to handle its HR, payroll, and benefits, and found that
the system required extensive maintenance while lacking the configurability
Amica wanted in order to rapidly make HCM changes. After an extensive
evaluation of HCM platforms, company executives selected UltiPro in December
2012 because of the broad spectrum of HR, payroll, and talent management
capabilities; solution flexibility; and cloud-based HCM technology.

“UltiPro fit perfectly into Amica’s plans of having an easy-to-use,
easy-to-manage HCM solution—and one that we no longer have to manage or
maintain internally,” said Richard Bouthillette, HRIS director at Amica Mutual
Insurance Co. “We are looking forward to spending far less time on upgrades
and much more time on our people management processes.”

With Ultimate Software’s cloud technology, Amica will be able to take
advantage the latest HR, payroll, benefits, and talent features without
needing to rely on internal IT resources. Additional business benefits by
using Ultimate’s cloud connectivity include improved efficiency; built-in
capabilities for disaster recovery and business continuity; 24-7 direct access
for administrators, managers, executives, and employees; and fast deployment
of new UltiPro functionality. Ultimate began delivering the UltiPro solution
via the cloud in 2002 and today has more than 10 million people records in the
cloud.

“The upgrades we experienced with the ERP we previously used always have been
a lengthy, staff-intensive process for us, and we did most, if not all, of the
work using our internal resources. We almost never could take advantage of new
functionality because all of our time was spent just making sure that the
upgraded software was working properly,” said Bouthillette. “With UltiPro, we
will need a fraction of the resources that our previous system required, and
we are eager to leverage all the features available to us through UltiPro to
bring more benefits to our employees and our business.”

“Without question, on-premise software requires substantially larger
investments of time and resources for ongoing maintenance and upgrades.
Ultimate’s cloud technology allows us to deliver enhancements to our customers
much more rapidly than through traditional, on-premise HCM systems and makes
it easier for customers to take advantage of innovations in HCM technology,”
said Greg Swick, chief sales officer for Ultimate Software. “We’re very
pleased to welcome Amica Mutual Insurance to Ultimate’s expanding circle of
customers who enjoy the business advantages that HCM in the cloud delivers.”
