Researcher's Summary:

UltiPro is suitable for businesses of all sizes and provides great payroll and benefits features. Its business intelligence works well for advanced users with a designated HRIS team, but for a small business or unskilled users, it can be difficult to get what you want quickly. The system also lacks an intuitive UI and needs better PTO functionality. However, its ease of use, along with powerful reporting, robust payroll and data accessibility via customization, makes UltiPro a good contender for an HR solution.
