The solution could use better reporting with standard reports. We use the Cognos platform in BI for a lot of our reporting. However, they need to have more robust standard reporting available to their user base.

More Ultimate Software UltiPro Cons »

It's possible that the way things are integrated could be improvedThe UI, UX (user experience) is very bad. It is not very interactive.The security console should be made less complex.It is good that much of the development is based on community input but often that can lead to details being ignored and small, nagging issues are ignored.Reporting systems should be improved. If you want to report it on paper, if you want something more BI oriented, more high level predictive or more data-driven, it should be improved.Setting up reports can be a bit tricky.It has missing functionalities. Specific countries, like Germany, didn't have the option to do payroll. Now we need to look for another product for HR.There is a lot of complexity in the configuration of this solution.
