Ultimate Software to Establish Ping Identity-enabled SSO Connection for UltiPro HCM Solution

Ping Identity recently announced its PingOne and PingFederate solutions will be used by Ultimate Software for establishing a secure, cloud-based single sign-on (SSO) connection for the company’s UltiPro human capital management (HCM) solution. Ultimate Software is a well-known provider of people management solutions in the Cloud for global businesses.

By offering an optional Ping Identity-enabled SSO for UltiPro, Ultimate Software will allow customers to use other cloud-based applications, letting their workforce log in one time and access cloud-based business applications with just a single click.  

For customers, this means a much improved, more efficient customer experience.

“UltiPro is designed to unleash the full potential of people within organizations and strengthen their productivity,” said Jennifer Brafman Staffen, Ultimate Director of Strategic Alliances. “Part of that is making sure employees have simple, secure, browser-based and mobile access to the solutions they use to run their business. A strong track record of excellence in this space, and the ability to offer customers public, private and hybrid options, made partnering with Ping Identity a natural choice.”

The UltiPro HCM solution from Ultimate Software is a robust offering delivered on-demand as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) in the cloud. The solution incorporates all human capital management components into a single master system of record, which optimizes global people management.

Customers can use UltiPro for accessing important pay, benefits, company and career-related information, which is why the need for a single sign-on access is vital.

“Custom coding proprietary SSO connections for each customer is time-consuming and expensive,” said Mike Desai, Sr. Director, SaaS, Ping Identity. “Ping Identity removes these burdens for Ultimate and its customers, providing standards-based SSO that never compromises security and helps meet their customers’ compliance requirements.”

Ultimate Software will use Ping Identity to provide its customers with a one-click access to UltiPro through the PingOne CloudDesktop; ensure centralized account control, security and compliance for IT; guarantee optimized employee onboarding and exiting; and deliver single sign-on for ensuring that mobile access is secured.
