Global Sunroof Manufacturer Empowers Employees, Inspires Culture

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - Jul 11, 2016) - Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced that Inalfa Roof Systems, one of the world's biggest providers of vehicle roof systems, has selected Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) to help transform its HR and talent management. With Workday, Inalfa Roof Systems is moving to a modern cloud-based system that will empower employees and managers to make better decisions based on real-time information wherever they may be.

With over 5,000 employees across 9 countries, Inalfa Roof Systems is a global designer, developer, and manufacturer of sunroofs and open roof systems for some of the largest automobile brands in the world. To support continued growth across its global operations, the company was looking for a single, unified HR system to replace a series of inefficient legacy HR solutions.

With Workday, Inalfa Roof Systems expects to:

  • Streamline HR operations and processes to free up time for HR managers to focus on more strategic activities and initiatives.

  • Improve workforce planning with real-time analytics and reporting that equips managers with robust, reliable data about their people and teams, and business leaders with clear insight into the entire workforce.

  • Better retain and engage talent with the ability to track and manage the entire employee lifecycle -- from sourcing to succession planning -- all in one system.

  • Empower employees with an intuitive interface that enables them to access relevant information and perform tasks on the go from a mobile device.

  • Avoid costly and time-consuming upgrades associated with legacy systems by leveraging continuous innovation from Workday's development on a single code line delivered in the cloud.
