GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Ultimate Software Group, Inc. is a Delaware corporation formed in April 1996. The Company is a provider of cloud-based human capital management ("HCM"). The Company's UltiPro software ("UltiPro") is a comprehensive, easy-to-use solution delivered primarily over the Internet to organizations based in the United States and Canada, including those with global employees. The Company is a SaaS provider of people management solutions, with more than 7 million people records in the cloud. Built on the belief that people are the most important ingredient of any business, the Company's award-winning UltiPro delivers HR, payroll, and talent management solutions that seamlessly connect people with the information and resources they need to work more effectively. The Company's solutions are marketed as two solution suites based on company size. UltiPro Enterprise is designed to address the needs of companies with 1,000 or more employees. UltiPro Workplace is designed for companies with fewer than 1,000 employees. The solution includes feature sets for talent acquisition, HR management and compliance, benefits management and online enrollment, payroll, performance management, salary planning and budgeting, reporting and analytical decision-making tools, time and attendance, and a self-service Web portal for executives, managers, administrators, and employees. UltiPro Workplace was developed for companies in the mid-market and is delivered through SaaS. UltiPro Workplace provides medium-sized and smaller companies with nearly all the features that Enterprise companies have with UltiPro, plus a bundled services package. Ultimate's SaaS offering of UltiPro, branded 'Intersourcing', provides on-line access to human capital management functionality for organizations that need to simplify the IT support requirements of their business applications. In 2012, Ultimate was ranked 25 on FORTUNE'S '100 Companies to Work For' list. Ultimate has more than 2,300 customers with employees in 115 countries, including Adobe Systems Incorporated, The Container Store, Culligan International, Major League Baseball, The New York Yankees Baseball Team, and Texas Roadhouse. The company has two main revenue sources: recurring revenues and services revenues. The company's customers represent a variety of industries, including manufacturing, food services, sports, technology, finance, insurance, retail, real estate, transportation, communications, healthcare and other services. The Company's competitors in the Enterprise market include large service bureaus, primarily Automatic Data Processing Inc. ('ADP') and, to a lesser extent, Ceridian; and companies, such as PeopleSoft/Oracle, Lawson, Kronos, and Workday that offer human resource management and payroll software products for use on mainframes, client/server environments and/or Web servers.
