Ultimate Software Selected by the Chicago Cubs

June 21, 2010 – The Chicago Cubs has activated Ultimate Software’s UltiPro HCM solution to better manage its workforce, as well as handle complex multi-state taxation and payroll requirements associated with unions. As part of the Tribune Company, the Chicago Cubs previously used a large enterprise resource planning solution (ERP) to manage the baseball team's HR and payroll processes. After the team was acquired by Ricketts Acquisition, the Cubs needed to swiftly move to an HCM solution that could address the team's compensation challenges. “We needed large-enterprise functionality that would also make sense for an organization that is sometimes 200 active employees,” said Jenny Surma, senior director of human resources for the Chicago Cubs. “UltiPro provides us with comprehensive HR features that adapt to whatever size we are at any time, and the solution doesn't require the costly hardware or maintenance of an ERP system. UltiPro is definitely an excellent fit for us.”
