Workday and BlaBlaCar

BlaBlaCar connects drivers with empty seats to passengers looking for a ride. Over 12 million people use BlaBlaCar every quarter, creating an entirely new people-powered transport network. With dedicated customer service, a state-of-the-art web and mobile platform, and a fast-growing community of users, BlaBlaCar is making travel more social, cost-effective, and efficient for millions of members.

For us as a Finance team, it’s to be a step ahead of all the expectations of top management, our auditors, the stakeholders. With Workday we feel we can achieve this, and we can bring reliable and relevant data to the people who are waiting for it.
