Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that it was named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: SaaS Human Resource Management Systems, Q3 2017.
In the report, Forrester evaluated eight vendors across three categories: current offering, strategy, and market presence. Current offering focused on core and extended HR functions and technical capabilities, among other factors. The two primary criteria in the Strategy category included the vendor's product strategy and vision, and partner ecosystem and growth. Market presence factors in the company revenues, the number of customers, and the aggregate number of active employees managed across the SaaS HR management systems customer base.
The Forrester report notes that, “Ultimate differentiates itself in the market by leveraging its own employee-centric culture to drive its people-first product and go-to-market strategies,” and also stated that “Ultimate makes a strong, visionary case for the value of an engaged workforce in driving business results.”
"We believe our scores across the range of evaluation criteria validate our philosophy of always putting people first. This core principle determines how we treat our employees, design our solutions, and serve our customers," said Scott Scherr, CEO, president, and founder of Ultimate. "The market need for SaaS HR solutions is high as companies recognize that they can best drive business results by taking care of their people."
