The UltiPro payroll engine can be used by a wide variety of businesses in the United States and Canada, including those in the hospitality, insurance, retail, manufacturing and automotive industries. A number of healthcare and non-profit organizations also use the UltiPro Payroll Gateway.
Ultimate Software, the creators of UltiPro, claim that it is the most functional and flexible payroll engine on the market, capable of handling a huge number of payroll related calculations in either U.S. or Canadian dollars. Some of the calculations UltiPro can handle include shift premiums, garnishments and average pay rates for overtime.
Through the UltiPro Payroll Gateway, businesses can take care of payroll from start to finish, including automatically retrieving attendance and time data, calculating payroll and issuing checks or direct deposit payments. The program also allows the business to track its payroll online and immediately void any payments if necessary.
In addition to the payroll system, UltiPro includes a tax management system that allows businesses to handle their own taxes. The Smart Tax Search can automatically determine all applicable taxes based on where the employee lives and works. In addition, the program is automatically updated every quarter to include the latest federal, state and local U.S. taxes, as well as federal and provincial Canadian taxes.
