With a broad customer base that includes several Fortune 500 companies, J.B.

Hunt enhance the quality and efficiency of its financial processes to better meet the needs of its business. Key areas where J.B.

Benefits J.B. Hunt expects to gain with Workday Financial Management include:

  • Real-time business insights to enable stronger decision-making across the organization from detailed business transactions captured with Worktags.
  • Greater control to adapt and accommodate to new business requirements and processes, while reducing the level of IT support.
  • A consumer-driven, intuitive user interface that enables finance operations to better manage information and extract insights with minimal training for improved operational efficiencies.
  • Built-in mobile access across tablet and smartphone devices empowering the organization with greater accessibility to business information and insights.
  • A unified system with Workday HCM, delivering greater visibility into the total workforce, including both full-time and contingent labor, and better insight into global headcount, workforce costs, skills and experience, and overall performance.

J.B. Hunt also intends to significantly reduce IT complexity and costs by gaining Workday's cloud-based delivery model, which includes regular updates delivered three times a year over a matter of days, to ensure the company is current on the latest application and technology innovations. J.B. Hunt will no longer need to manage multiple versions of software and implementations, because Workday is one code line that ensures every customer is on the latest version of the products.
