Greenlight Guru
Greenlight Guru is well-suited for medical device companies. They have exceptional resources that are especially helpful for smaller, start-up type companies, including customizable SOPs, Forms, and Work Instructions, as well as countless other educational resources on focused topics like Risk Management or Auditing. Greenlight Guru is NOT currently able to be integrated into any ERP systems and therefore may be difficult for the Operations and Quality aspects of the organization if, for example, manufacturing is being performed in-house, and the ERP system is used to document all quality events. (In this case, it would be redundant to also document them in Greenlight Guru - although could potentially be useful to document investigation details.) Greenlight Guru also only allows documents to be uploaded one at a time, so for companies that want to convert their existing DHF or other QMS files into Greenlight Guru for completeness, this process could be incredibly time consuming.

Workday
Workday is well suited for managing employees throughout their full life cycle. It excels at housing employee data from the start of their time with the company through their departure. Workday is less suited to payroll functions, which could be more robust.

Workday
  • The flexibility of going beyond handling the accounts, where we can handle cash, assets, and accounting simultaneously for the customer.
  • The single platform offers grants management where you can organize the lifecycle of the grants and synchronize it with any criteria of grant closing out scheme.
  • I personally liked Project billing with the essence of evaluating project revenue and nice reporting templates that can be shared with the customer at any stage of the project while having the flexibility of auditing the reported cost.

Cons
Greenlight Guru
  • Periodic review of documents is an industry standard that is missing
  • Would love a training matrix similar to the design matrix that links with procedures/work instructions
  • Ability to modify or add parameters in the analytics function for better trending metrics
  • Ability to modify or add to predetermined "lists" in CAPA, Audits, Nonconformance workspaces

Workday
  • Some of the Workday updates last till like 10 in the morning which prevents employees to clock in and check their times and some cases their schedules
  • Workday can work on opening documents quicker instead of taking couple of minutes or notifying the user when they are ready to download

Workday
Workday is easy enough navigate, as long as it is properly set up. With that said, it can be put together in a modular fashion as well, allowing for a very high degree of flexibility in terms of design and process delegation. Finally, it makes consolidation achievable in times previously unthinkable.

Greenlight Guru
Greenlight Guru definitely has the better/more easily understood UI. I've tried several other training systems and haven't bumped into any of the issues I've faced before, like my training being completed by another person or glitches within the system. Greenlight Guru is a program that doesn't take too long to learn to use and get used to using.

Workday
Despite Airtable also being easier to use one thing that differentiates and put forth Workday Financial Management tool above is it's key features and better suited functionality for handling confidential data. The other positive note where Workday Financial Management performs high is it key analytics tool that's easier to use and representation of information into insightful dashboards.

Workday
  • We were able to combine 4 different HR modules into one system.
  • We reduced data breach incidents by 95% after shifting to Workday. One of our legacy softwares had vulnerabilities.
  • The initial learning curve was higher than projected. We spent about a week to 10 days extra time deploying it, which affected the profit center that year.
