What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Workday is an expensive solution.

What is most valuable?

The integration between the different models like personnel administration, work management, payroll, and time management are the most valuable and key features. It's also very important to make sure that the data is correct as well, to make sure that you get the best out of the solution. The interface is simple to use. It is quite easy. The dashboards are also user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

The management side needs improvement. To me, I think people have underestimated this solution because we know what consists of all the objects in regards to the organizational structures, positions, departments, training, there could be better improvement on that. On the personnel administration side, it's very difficult to do custom development. You're always dependent on your editors to do… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a seven out of ten. The biggest lesson I have learned from using this solution is that integration is so important. You must understand integration, even within HCM between the different module.
