How It Works

Ensuring your employees are paid timely and accurately is a critical foundation for any organization, and this becomes increasingly complex as you expand into multiple countries.

As a multinational business, regardless of country or workforce size, you need a global payroll provider you can trust to understand the various country-specific requirements, while delivering a comprehensive and efficient service necessary to move your company forward.

Ultimate’s partnership with activpayroll provides a standard, bi-directional payroll integration to quickly and easily exchange employee data between UltiPro® and activ8. Global employees’ demographic, banking, and other pay-related information is sent from UltiPro to activ8, where payroll processing is managed.

Once payroll is complete, activ8 sends the gross-to-net details to UltiPro. This allows your employees to access their pay history in UltiPro, while providing you the ability to gain comprehensive insights by combining HCM and total workforce costs globally.

Through this partnership, customers can enjoy an effective path to address regulatory compliances, accelerate time-to-implementation, and eliminate duplicate data entry.

activpayroll’s unique service provides:

  • Scalable and compliant global payroll solutions
  • Unparalleled flexibility toward complex needs
  • Tailored, technology-driven services
  • Flexible international payment solution
  • International & local expertise
  • Global mobility services
