We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We use the cloud version to maintain all the employee records, payroll, etc. We use everything that comes with the HR suite."
"The best features that were working well for us was the Goal Management and Performance Management. They were the most valuable to our organization."
"It's brought to our organization a big big improvement. We would give it a good rating."
"The interface is really useful and it's very easy to combine different information. For example, we can easily get reports that we need. It's very easy to create reports."
"The most important feature is the ability to follow up on the yearly performance of the team. It's very good for management to understand how people are performing."
"The interface is user-friendly. It is very simple and intuitive, so it's good."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the performance management module."
"The performance of the solution is very good."
"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."
"Analytics could use some work."
"They should improve the reports."
"We have many interruptions and disconnection points into processes, which is why we are looking to another solution. We are not so happy with the system. We believe we have in the market better solution, so we are looking for alternatives but so far the system has been used a lot."
"Some of the screens aren't that user-friendly, older employees especially have a hard time with it. They have some problems with it."
"LMS, Learning Management Systems, needs improvement because there were some stability problems."
"There should be more connectivity with other systems."
"The GUI needs to be enhanced to be in line with the latest and complete version of the solution."
"he user interface could be improved."
"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."
"The licensing fees are based on the number of modules that are being used, and the number of users."
"I don't want to comment on the license cost, to be honest. It could be about $1,000 approximately per customer. However, it's very flexible in terms of the licensing costs depending on the volume and depending on the deal of installation."
"If you go by best practices and do it right from the outset, the setup won't be a costly endeavor. In terms of setup, there is a lot of flexibility compared to three years ago."
"It could be cheaper."
"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."
