Overall Satisfaction

Workday was implemented to automate and streamline the company wide human resource management processes. Mainly communicating to the employees and have them manage there own HR requests. Also, a cloud based, non-enterprise solution was required, allowing for minimal internal IT resources. Plus it had to interface with the existing payroll system.
  • From the USER EXPERIENCE point of view, the system was easily navigated
  • The cloud-based solution did fit into the corporate environment fairly easily.
  • The was readily available core technical resources available.
  • Their project management implementation staff needs vast improvement
  • There releases need to be more thoroughly tested.
  • Very limited reporting ability without brining on highly technical consultants and in most cases virtually impossible
  • Management response to customer issues was somewhat non-existant, we had to raise it to the executive level.
  • too many release at the time.
  • web-services did not work as documented and very limited.
  • The implementation took twice as long and we had to spend on consultant that were not in the original budget.
  • Once the system was working, it did streamline and increase the efficiency of employee requests
  • The HR staff was able to serve the employee at a more productive rate

Through the sales process Workday lists of features and functions really seem to outshine the other cloud-based HRIS. Based upon that Workday was selected to be the HRIS.
Mainly because it is improving with each release and time and budget already invested into this implementation
I would recommend to wait until Workday is a more mature company, before investing a considerable amount of capital. The concept is great, the implementation was lacking. They do have a greta executive leadership team so I assume that they will improve as they mature.
