In 2018, PeopleDoc became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ultimate Software, a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) cloud solutions. At PeopleDoc by Ultimate Software, we continue on our mission to provide HR Service Delivery solutions that integrate with all HCM systems. Every day, our technology helps companies improve the employee experience, manage global compliance, and boost efficiency.
A lot of mail, to be accurate. PeopleDoc started on the campus of the HEC Business School in Paris with a pioneering idea: replace postal mail. The belief was that every consumer should be able to receive, store and securely share daily life documents in a personal digital vault.
In 2009, our love affair with HR was born. When the HR community took note of the personal document vault, they asked us to design a product specifically for HR to address the millions of employee records they have to manage and retain. As a result, we introduced a consumer-friendly cloud solution designed specifically for HR: Employee File Management.
Over the next ten years, PeopleDoc grew exponentially in revenue and number of customers across both Europe and North America. With funding from Accel, Alven Capital, Eurazeo and Kernel Investissements, we expanded on Employee File Management to include Case Management, Process Automation, and Advanced Analytics. Together, these solutions create the industry’s first integrated HR Service Delivery platform. Customer demand grew and we expanded sales operations across seven countries to serve more than 1,000 customers.
