  Two Healthcare Services Companies Select Ultimate Software’s UltiPro for
  Human Capital Management

Business Wire

WESTON, Fla. -- December 20, 2013

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people
management solutions, announced today that two companies in the healthcare
services industry—Intralign Health and Daybreak Group—have selected the
cloud-based UltiPro solution to enhance their processes for human capital
management (HCM).

A highly regulated industry with complex HCM requirements, the healthcare
industry has a wide variety of challenges related to people management. For
example, when supporting employees who have diverse backgrounds, education,
skills, and experience, healthcare companies need HCM technology that provides
end users with easy-to-use capabilities. To monitor changing workforce
demographics as well as manage reporting and audit requirements, healthcare
organizations also need a single solution to house employee data that is
accessible to HR, leaders, and managers who are in multiple locations. Changes
can occur rapidly and unexpectedly, and as a result, companies need customer
and support services that are responsive and can quickly address their needs.

One Unified Solution

Arizona-based Intralign Health provides a portfolio of integrated services
that help hospitals create efficiencies in the intra-operative space through
clinical support, actionable data systems, and process re-design. The company
had been using multiple service bureaus to handle its HR and payroll
operations, but the disparate systems often created an assortment of business
challenges, particularly company reporting and tracking. Executives wanted to
synchronize its HCM in one unified, centralized solution, and in August 2013,
Intralign Health chose UltiPro.

“Because of its cloud delivery, UltiPro will provide our company with an
affordable solution that requires minimal IT support and spend on our internal
resources. Even better is that all the HCM functionality is delivered in one
unified suite, which will bring significant advantages to our operations,”
said Lars Thording, Vice President of Marketing and Public Affairs at
Intralign Health.

“In addition to the business benefits that will come with one system of record
for our HCM, UltiPro also will deliver cohesive, standardized reporting as
well as give our teams the flexibility to configure the solution to meet our
unique business requirements.”

Higher Levels of Customer Support

Daybreak Group provides a wide array of home- and community-based services to
individuals with developmental disabilities. Since its inception over 17 years
ago, Daybreak has experienced rapid growth, providing services to more than
1,100 people throughout Texas in approximately 158 group homes, individual
homes, foster care settings, and day habilitation sites.

Daybreak Group had been using another cloud provider for its HCM, but ongoing
issues with customer support spurred executives to search for a tenured HCM
provider with a solid track record of exemplary customer support and
retention. The healthcare organization evaluated Ultimate Software’s cloud
technology and support services, and then chose UltiPro in July 2013.

“The primary decision drivers in switching to Ultimate were its outstanding
customer service, the ongoing development and innovation with its cloud
technology, and its active, engaged customer user groups,” said Judy Brannen,
HR director at the Daybreak Group. “With Ultimate, we will have direct lines
of communication to our service representatives and quick access to customer
support for anything we may need, even after business hours. Overall, this
level of support means we can put full focus on supporting our expanding
business rather than having to manage the system and related problems that
could surface. Plus, we’re very excited about having a user-friendly,
easy-to-manage technology for our HCM.”

“Leveraging a best-in-class HCM technology from a trusted provider can empower
healthcare companies to easily handle industry challenges, better manage a
diverse employee population, streamline complex manual processes, and
strategically plan for the future,” said Chris Phenicie, chief sales officer
of the mid-market at Ultimate Software. “With UltiPro, employees and managers
can access their data from anywhere, data is consolidated into one system of
record, and unique business requirements can be easily handled. We look
forward to adding Intralign Health and Daybreak Group to our expanding circle
of healthcare organizations that are experiencing increased efficiency,
productivity, and business improvements since leveraging UltiPro.”
