With Workday, service-centric organisations can:

  • Gain more meaningful insights and adapt business strategies to match the speed of change. Employees and extended workers often represent the largest source of spend for service-centric organisations. By combining operational data with finance and worker data, organisations are empowered to make real-time, data-driven decisions to help maximise profitability and performance across talent populations. With Workday’s intelligent data core, organisations can integrate and manage multiple data sources, allowing visibility across their ecosystem in one place. For example, an organisation can respond to dynamic changes by modelling new strategies and taking action, as well as aligning the workforce to business needs.
  • Fuel automation and increase efficiency in mission-critical business processes. Workday helps orchestrate seamless processing across the front, middle, and back office technology ecosystem, creating a connected and frictionless experience that helps increase employee productivity. For example, with the ability to conduct continuous accounting and embedded machine learning to help automate transactional processes, as well as workspaces that help enable collaboration across finance teams, employees have more time to focus on strategy and analysis.
  • Unlock the potential of the most valuable resource – the workforce. Human capital is the most complex, multi-dimensional asset service-centric organisations have to manage. Workday helps organisations map people resources to business needs, including upskilling, job rotations, and training.
