MI-Jack Deploys UltiPro to Manage Human Capital

By CIOReview | Tuesday, March 29, 2016

WESTON, FL: In a recent development, Ultimate Software and MI-Jack Products have decided that MI-Jack will leverage UltiPro, the Human Capital Management (HCM) solution offered by Ultimate Software. HCM is an approach to manage employee staffing that perceives people as assets, whose value can be measured and enhanced through investment.

Ultimate Software is the provider of cloud-based HCM solutions, merging people and technology so that the HCM tools don’t get in the way of work. On the otherhand, MI-Products are the manufactures of Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes as well as component machinery and solutions for the railroad and port-intermodal industries.

UltiPro unites all aspects of HR, payroll, and talent management that enables organizations simplify its complex benefits management and free their managers to focus more on people than on processes. Using UltiPro, the employees of MI-Jack are able to track and manage their Paid Time Off/Personal Time Off (PTO) without the help of the managers. Besides, it empowers the managers to log into the system from anywhere to gather information regarding payout calculations as well as manage contracts of the company’s employees. Chris Phenicie, Chief Sales Officer, Ultimate Software states, “We are pleased that MI-Jack Products is utilizing UltiPro to address its challenges, liberating managers and employees to put their energies into developing quality products and offering value-added services.”

MI-Jack juggled between as many as twenty-four different PTOs for its union and non-union employees, before they started using UltiPro. They used to manually submit and track the PTOs which resulted in communication issues, inconsistencies, and challenges with record-keeping and reporting. It also hampered managers’ productivity, as they spent more time on employees’ PTO concerns.

Kristin Yzaguirre, Human Resources Generalist, Mi-Jack comments, “UltiPro has automated our complex HCM and is helping us manage our workforce well. It gives us insight into our manpower expenses with reporting, and we can now easily manage compliance with company policy, Canadian law, and various collective bargaining agreements.”
