Sallie Mae

By installing one system, we were able to replace a lot of different slices that were handled by different systems, or in some cases, no system at all. So not only do you get the latest and greatest functionality for one aspect—the HR world—you get the advantage of tying everything together.

— Jon Kroehler, Senior Vice President of Human Resources


  • Legacy on-premise ERP system had become rigid and complex and was very expensive to maintain
  • Existing system was unable to show a complete picture of the business and measure performance over time
  • Manual processes created inefficiencies and increased administrative burden
  • Lack of unified, comprehensive view of HR and Finance information



  • A unified system with a richer, more comprehensive financial and operational picture of the business
  • Lower total cost of ownership and greater flexibility to serve the dynamic business with Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model
  • HR and IT liberated to focus on more strategic initiatives
  • Improved operational efficiencies throughout the global finance organization
  • With Workday handling the systems, Sallie Mae can focus on core competencies of its business
