Challenges
  • Global reporting was tedious, manual and not always accurate
  • Due to many acquisitions, 80 different HR systems existed, which were extremely difficult to manage
  • Various locations acted more like independent entities—separate processes and systems that didn't talk to other parts of the company was inefficient

Solutions
  • Workday Human Capital Management, Integration Cloud
  • Single system-of-record for all global employees, making reporting much easier and efficient
  • Self-service empowers managers to have an accurate view of their organization, visibility into how much their employees cost, and what their employees are working on
  • Subscription-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery offers reduced up-front investment and cost savings, and empowers the IT organization to be agile

Results
  • 80 HR systems replaced by a single system
  • 30% reduction in total cost of ownership compared to a packaged solution from a traditional vendor
  • Freed up HR from transaction-based processes, allowing them to focus on strategic projects to the business and provide data to business leaders to help make data-driven decisions
