Glacier Bancorp, Inc., Selects Ultimate Software's Intersourcing.

WESTON, Fla. -- Ultimate Software (Nasdaq:ULTI), a leading provider of end-to-end strategic human resources, payroll, and talent management solutions, announced today that Glacier Bancorp, Inc., has selected UltiPro delivered through its Intersourcing service model.

Glacier Bancorp is a regional multi-bank holding company providing commercial banking services through 90 banking offices in Montana, Idaho, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. With approximately 1,500 employees, Glacier Bancorp has been using a service bureau for its human resources, payroll, and benefits management, but wanted the additional value provided by time and attendance functionality, recruiting tools, and self-service for managers and employees. Subsequently, the financial service company decided to evaluate other vendors and chose Ultimate Software's Intersourcing in September 2006.

"Ultimate Software offers an end-to-end talent management solution accessible with a single sign-on so that we can leverage online recruitment and applicant tracking, create time and attendance reports at a moment's notice, and streamline benefits enrollment with electronic reporting to benefit vendors," said Robin Roush, senior vice president of human resources for Glacier Bancorp.

Another decision driver for the bank holding company was the reputation behind Ultimate Software's customer support group. In 2006, Ultimate Software's Customer Services team was presented with both a STAR award from the Service & Support Professionals Association (SSPA) and the top spot in the Best Customer Service Organization category from the American Business Awards.

"Ultimate Software's services complement UltiPro's functional breadth. I like the structure of the company's support organization and the fact that we will have a dedicated customer service representative and a customer relationship manager," said Roush. "We look forward to developing relationships with the services team so that they will understand our uniquenesses and help us make the most of the solution."

"Ultimate Software's customer support has a proven track record of success validated by third-party organizations," said Greg Swick, Ultimate Software's senior vice president of sales. "Glacier Bancorp understands the benefits of our services combined with our recruitment-through-retirement functionality. We are happy that the financial service company will be taking advantage of UltiPro's features to optimize its talent management processes."
