Workday Financial Management gives you the tools to achieve the highest levels of business performance and financial excellence.

  • Get immediate visibility into financial performance with real-time, comprehensive financial and operational reports.
  • Accommodate multi-entity, multi-book, and multi-currency requirements for global organisations.
  • Manage your global business with country-specific configurations, language translations, and enhanced document sequencing.
  • Adapt and accommodate new business and regulatory requirements as they arise without additional customisations or technology investments.
  • Ensure proper security and support compliance efforts with embedded controls and an always-on audit trail.

Automate and control your cash flow

Streamline payment processes and gain greater control and visibility over the lifeblood of your business: your cash flow.

  • Track and manage your business bank accounts.
  • Automatically reconcile bank statements.
  • Use a single settlement engine to manage all payments generated across the entire business for any purpose such as payroll, supplier payments, employee expense reimbursements, and customer refunds.
  • Gain real-time visibility into cash balances and more accurately forecast cash flow with embedded analytics.

Manage your business assets

Workday combines the traditionally separate domains of fixed assets and inventory with the ability to manage and account for all your business assets – from high-value, low-cost assets like laptops and mobile phones to intangible, high-value assets like rights and licences.

  • Manage your asset roster, depreciation, and life cycle accounting.
  • Define, track, and account for both tangible and intangible assets.
  • Track low-cost and zero-cost items that have high value or liability (such as mobile devices or security badges).
  • Assign custody and responsibility of items to employees to prevent cost leakage and security risks due to employee turnover.
  • Account for business assets according to accounting rules and track according to business use.

Real-time financial reporting

By combining a unique, event-driven accounting approach with built-in controls and a robust multi-company, multi-currency model, Workday securely delivers financial records and reports with speed, accuracy, and complete auditability.

  • Get immediate visibility into financial performance with real-time, consolidated reports.
  • Reduce the time spent compiling, reconciling, and consolidating data from fragmented systems.
  • Transform financial and management reporting with composite reports that offer the power and flexibility of a spreadsheet but with enterprise-class control and performance.
  • Enable finance to provide improved business-decision support with flexible, ad hoc reporting.
  • Securely access financial reports from anywhere using a web browser or mobile device.

Controls: Adhere, audit, adapt

Workday eliminates the need for bolt-on governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) systems with built-in controls at the transaction level that ensure proper security, separation of duties, transparent business processes, and comprehensive auditing.

  • Configure and monitor business processes and workflows.
  • Adapt business processes whenever changes are needed without having to reimplement your financial system.
  • Report on transactions and get full audit reports on any and every transaction processed in the system.
  • Configure security access policies and ensure separation of duties.
  • Manage all your business controls centrally, while allowing for variations for local regions or specific countries.
