While Discount Tire has experienced continued explosive growth since its inception, the retailer faced challenges with its 20-year-old on-premise system that could no longer keep pace with the company’s innovation.
Following thorough and parallel evaluations, Discount Tire unanimously selected Workday, its first cloud-based system, to help drive efficiencies and scalability for continued growth and an enriched end-user experience. The company no longer needs bolt-on systems and has avoided costly upgrades. Since going live on Workday, Discount Tire has almost doubled the size of its workforce.

HR and Payroll teams now work cohesively as partners to the business with continuously evolving roles that go beyond data input and administration.
