Accelerates Growth With One Global, Unified System

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2013) - Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for human resources and finance, today announced that Allied Global Holdings, an international debt collection and accounts receivable management company, selected Workday's suite of enterprise cloud applications, including Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), Workday Financial Management, Workday Payroll, Workday Time Tracking, and Workday Expenses. Allied Global has been named one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies by Deloitte for 13 consecutive years.

With expanding operations in Canada, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, and the United States, Allied Global needed to move from multiple disparate systems that were not delivering the speed and real-time insights vital to run the business to a single solution that could help drive better business decisions. By unifying human resources and finance in the Workday cloud, the company will have greater visibility into the people, operations, and financials of the business, promoting improved efficiencies, higher productivity, and increased cost savings and revenue opportunities. 

Benefits of Taking HR and Finance to Cloud
With Workday HCM and Workday Financial Management, Allied Global will benefit from one global, unified system for HR and finance. Specific benefits are expected to include:

  • Real-time business insights captured by Worktags delivering the who, what, why, when, and where of business events to enable stronger decision-making across the organization.
  • Faster access to reports and relevant business data and insights with Workday's real-time reporting and analytics to improve operational efficiencies.
  • Greater control to adapt and accommodate to new business and regulatory requirements and processes, while reducing the level of IT support.
  • Deeper visibility and immediate access to information into the total workforce and better insight into global headcount, workforce costs, skills and experience, and overall performance.
  • A consumer-driven, intuitive user interface that will enable the company to better manage information and extract business insights with minimal training, leading to increased productivity and user engagement.
  • Built-in mobile access across all tablet and smartphone devices that will empower managers and workers around the globe to collaborate with real-time information from anywhere, at anytime.
