Ultimate Software, a provider of end-to-end strategic human resources, payroll, and talent management solutions, announced that its customer Silver Eagle Distributors, L.P., the largest Anheuser-Busch distributor in the nation, has cut its “time to hire” in half with Ultimate Software’s UltiPro Recruitment.

Silver Eagle’s HR team had been manually processing 300 to 500 job applications each week before the company went “live” on Ultimate Software’s UltiPro Recruitment in 2005. Since going live, Silver Eagle is experiencing business benefits such as: 1) reduced time to hire, 2) expedited identification of qualified candidates, 3) streamlined applicant tracking and automated conversion of hired candidates into core UltiPro as new hires.

When Silver Eagle was processing applications manually before using UltiPro’s talent acquisition feature set, the HR team received an application, logged the information into a spreadsheet, and then placed the résumé into one of the stacks organized by location. Yvonne Pieprzyca, Silver Eagle’s recruiter, had to read through each one, dispose of the duplicates, and determine the appropriate course of action. The entire time-to-hire process would typically take several months. With UltiPro Recruitment, Pieprzyca has reduced the company’s time to hire by more than half.
