UltiPro Chosen by H&R Block Canada

Ultimate Software, a provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced that H&R Block Canada Inc., the largest income-tax preparation and electronic filing firm in Canada, has selected Ultimate's UltiPro to help manage business challenges related to scalability, a complex payroll, and workforce analytics.

Prior to UltiPro, the organization was using an HCM solution provided by a payroll service bureau, but according to the company, the system did not provide the level of depth or breadth of functionality, ease of use, reporting, and service that it needed for future growth.

Claire McSorley, Director of Total Rewards and HR Systems at H&R Block Canada, said the operational visibility UltiPro provides helps the company manage its dynamic workforce. 

"Our prior system forced us to tie each job to a location and a rate," McSorley said. "UltiPro's flexible payroll solution has enabled us to untie the relationship between a department identification number and a job. We have also been able to optimize our timecards so employees can see only the jobs assigned to them, and further reduce the risk of error."
