High Profile Staffing has partnered with ABD using Ultra-Staff since 2007. In February 2019 we upgraded to Ultra- Staff EDGE to take advantage of the cloud-based system that integrates with several of our other vendors and software platforms. It was a smooth transition to upgrade – literally overnight! Some of the features that we quickly learned we cannot live without are the Dashboard, Daily Planner, Customizable Screens, Job Activity Center, Tableau, Text-Em-All, and access to recorded webinars at the click of our mouse. The support staff at ABD has always been very responsive. They are just a phone call away to answer any questions, and assist with any training.
