Chicago, Ill. -- Aon Human Resources Outsourcing (HRO), a division of Aon Consulting Inc., has formed a strategic alliance agreement with Ultimate Software, a provider of Web-based payroll and employee management solutions. This alliance is the latest development in the growth and evolution of Aon HRO, adding payroll solutions for middle market clients as part of its expanding suite of integrated outsourcing services.
Aon HRO provides clients with comprehensive outsourced health and welfare services, defined benefit and defined contribution solutions, performance measurement and improvement services, hiring and training expertise, leadership, learning and human resources best practices and strategic consulting.
"Ultimate Software's innovative tool, UltiPro Workforce Management, meets all of our requirements for payroll processing and, as an added benefit, has an additional suite of HR features for middle market clients,” says Gary Budzinski, President of Aon HRO. “UltiPro strategically combines benefits administration to payroll services. In one application, we found tremendous capabilities."
UltiPro, which will be available through the Aon HRO global portal, will become an important part of Aon's payroll services, to be managed and delivered by Aon HRO professionals through the group's payroll service center. UltiPro is a flexible and accurate payroll engine that includes custom reporting and online analytics, empowering payroll and finance specialists to find, analyze and output information with little effort and no extra costs.
