We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution's scalability potential is very good. We have more than 1,000 users ourselves."
"The solution's most valuable features are all the human resources aspects and access management, as well as the talent review. The solution's talent management is very, very good."
"It is very user-friendly. Most of the UI is very intuitive so you don't need to follow a course to follow it up."
"This product can greatly improve handling of human resources and efficiency."
"I think that it's stable. I don't believe that there are any issues."
"The most valuable feature is the support for mobile devices."
"The technical support is very good."
"It has good navigation, and it is user friendly and secure. Every three months, there is an upgrade, and it has new features."
"Performance and good usability are the two most valuable features of this solution."
"The solution is extremely stable."
"It's actually a cloud-native solution and based on the community for development. It is a very good open architecture and able to interconnect with other systems. And it is very stable and very fast in terms of response."
"This product is leaps and bounds above the competition. Part of the reason is that it is built with modern technology. It has no legacy coding in it at all."
"The platform itself is very robust and I generally like the reporting and analytics capability."
"It's intuitive, a very usable tool and it's easy to find the data you're looking for."
"It helps the users to enroll for the benefits automatically and update their life events without the involvement of HR individuals or back-office staff. It enables a person to take action on their own. It reduces the administrative burden on HR and puts the ownership on the person that is going through the life event, whether it is having a child, taking a leave of absence, or something else. There are easy ways to integrate Workday with your common benefits. At least in the USA, it can be integrated with common benefits providers such as Fidelity, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, etc. It has got a connector that is able to connect with the vendor or the third party to which you are trying to send the eligibility file. It basically allows us to automate or set up the tool, and the integration with the provider is a lot quicker than competing tools. When it comes to reporting on just eligibility and SLSA, it is a lot more user-intuitive. Depending on the purpose of what you are doing, you can grant security rights or roles, for example, you can control whether someone is a benefits administrator doing an independent audit. Workday makes it very easy to do that. It significantly simplifies the reporting process."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of reporting."
"The recruitment aspect is good, but it's new and it still needs some enhancements. In the future, we hope it will be similar to Taleo."
"The features available in EBS should be available on the cloud as well. When these features are not available on the cloud, it's hard to convince customers to migrate."
"In the next release, I would like to see a new recruitments module. I would like to see the preboarding so that it sends out integrations through personal email. That would be very useful."
"The product is comparably complex to install and deploy properly."
"From the feedback that I get, the functional side of the payroll could be improved."
"It would be very nice if we were able to roll back transactions from data that was loaded with the data loader."
"There should be more digital assistance included, like chatbots."
"It is a cloud solution, so we cannot do much customization. However, if you have a past license, you can do the customization, but unfortunately, we don't have a past license. If we had that, we would have been 100% happy."
"It has missing functionalities. Specific countries, like Germany, didn't have the option to do payroll. Now we need to look for another product for HR."
"Setting up reports can be a bit tricky."
"Reporting systems should be improved. If you want to report it on paper, if you want something more BI oriented, more high level predictive or more data-driven, it should be improved."
"It is good that much of the development is based on community input but often that can lead to details being ignored and small, nagging issues are ignored."
"The UI, UX (user experience) is very bad. It is not very interactive."
"It's possible that the way things are integrated could be improved"
"It is very unique as compared to other tools in terms of the employee master data and how it is organized. That's why sometimes the information needs to sit in two different systems because, in Workday, it is organized differently. This issue is not related to benefits. It is more or so related to how you categorize employees. I don't think this is a problem that could be solved. Workday is aware of this. It is one of those kinds of situations that you just got to live with."
"The implementation could have gone a little smoother."
"On an annual basis, we pay about $25,000 for our company. This includes the VAT, support, upgrades and everything else."
"Oracle HCM offers many features at a low price."
"On average, it's not a cheap solution."
"It has a licensing cost. It has a cloud-based subscription, which is quite cheap."
"The solution is expensive."
"Licensing fees are on a yearly basis."
"Workday is an expensive solution."
"You have the license fee per module, and then you have a kind of annual training fee, which is a kind of add-on. I wouldn't say it is exhaustive; it is minor. Licensing is pretty transparent for most of the part."
"The pricing is good from an HR perspective, although management gets upset after spending $500,000 a year, every year."
"Its price is pretty high. It is more expensive than what is offered by other competitors in the market."
