Workday and Latitude

Latitude Financial Services operates across Australia and New Zealand with more than 1,600 employees serving over 2.5 million customers. Just three years ago, Latitude emerged out of the GE portfolio after GE Capital Finance—the company’s Australia and New Zealand consumer finance business—was acquired by its current owners Värde Partners, Deutsche Bank and KKR. 

“We wanted a partner that we could work with and have a genuine partnership with. We wanted a system that would enable an integration of HR and finance data. We wanted a system that would be easy and user-friendly. Workday ticked all of those boxes.”
