Alfa Laval Sees HR Process Improvement Using SaaS Model

Oct. 23, 2008
Company can 'go green' by processing HR information online

Alfa Laval, a provider of specialized products and engineering solutions was able to improve its human resources and payroll processes with UltiPro delivered through Ultimate Software's software-as-a-service (SaaS) option. Ultimate Software is a provider of end-to-end strategic human resources, payroll and talent management solutions.

"Our IT team was extremely busy, so we had to wait in line for things like having them install UltiPro's quarterly tax updates, causing some real issues," said Barbara Cuttino, human resource information system and payroll manager for Alfa Laval. "Having UltiPro delivered through SaaS has addressed that problem. Now, Ultimate Software performs our upgrades for us and maintains the hardware, so we can all focus on other projects."

Ultimate's SaaS model provides online access for administrators, managers and employees. Based on their roles, individuals can see only data that is relevant to them and they are authorized to view. Because employees can read company news, print needed forms, and view current and historical pay details using UltiPro, Alfa Laval has discontinued printing paychecks and dozens of other documents, supporting the company's initiative to "go green" by moving paper documents and processes online.

"Our employees love self-service and 98% of them have chosen to view their information using UltiPro rather than needing hard copy paychecks, forms, and handbooks. This means we have minimized our dependence on paper, reduced costs, and helped the environment," said Cuttino. "As a growing business, we also appreciate UltiPro's Web functionality because it allows us to scale in size with fewer associated expenses."
