UltiPro is a best-in-class Human Resources and Payroll system offered by Ultimate Software. The Army selected this system to significantly improve and modernize our hiring, scheduling and time entry, vacation and payroll processes. It also comes with advanced reporting capabilities. It will be rolled out across Canada in 2017.

Here is what it looks like:

What’s Included?

UltiPro offers many modern features:

  • Review your pay statements online, securely
  • Update your personal information
  • Download and print tax forms
  • Submit requests for time off

With all of the these features available through an internet browser, The Salvation Army is aiming for a big reduction in the use of paper forms and time spent completing, scanning and mailing them. It will also drastically reduce the copying of information from paper to system and the errors that can occur when doing so.

But wait, there’s more for managers and administrators!

  • Managers are notified when approvals are required
  • Approvals and time submissions are carried out with the click of a mouse
  • Time does not have to be re-entered at DHQ or THQ
  • New hire information can be completed online by Ministry Units, speeding up the process
  • A wide variety of useful reports that can be tailored to individual ministry unit needs

Why Are We Doing This?

Our current system is aging and there are many improvements we can use from a more up-to-date system. It will improve administrative efficiency and provide better access to information for everyone. UltiPro offers:

Ease of Access: Employees and officers can view their own information at any time, quickly and easily. This includes pay statements, tax forms (e.g., T4), personal information and pay history.

Speed and Accuracy: By enabling ministry units to enter data directly into the system, it will only be entered once, then directed to the appropriate people for review and approval. Built-in safeguards will help prevent common data entry mistakes. Setting up new hires and making changes will be a snap!

Managers Can See for Miles: Supervisors and managers can see information about all of their staff and track requests they have made. Approving time worked, vacation requests, and more can all be done online, whether in the office or away.

Improved Reporting: Today, creating a new report is a difficult task. Information doesn’t come in the format we want. UltiPro offers hundreds of helpful reports to help you manage and make decisions without having to ask someone else to provide data. Existing reports will be set up in UltiPro and be made available in several formats to ensure you have what you need. Available reports include vacation, sick and other time banks as well as funder reports.
