What is most valuable?

The feature I think that is the most attractive is the security. But there are other features that are valuable as well, such as the BP (Business Processes) — like the social security business… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Workday gives us another option for providing solutions to our clients that they need for managing and improving their business practices.

What needs improvement?

In essence, I think that all areas of the product have the potential to improve even if they are good already. At the same time, from one release to the next, Workday makes the effort to improve the… more»

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

Licensing costs are tiered. When you add different modules, it adds to your cost. For example, you can pay for Payroll functionality or you pay for the Benefits module. The more pieces you add, the… more»

What other advice do I have?

I've been in the HR/Payroll product domain for about 25 years, so I've been involved in the development of Ceridian's applications and other companies as well. I know a lot about other products and… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Our clients like to look at some of the bigger names like PeopleSoft, Ceridian's Dayforce, and maybe a few other major competing products. Workday beats them all. In my opinion, they are leaps and… more»

What is most valuable?

The business process framework is excellent. You can create a business process very easily using the drag and drops. You don't need to get an IT consultant to be able to use Workday, you can have people in the business that aren't IT… more»

What needs improvement?

Something that can be improved, is legislation within a country. There's something about paying dues in the country for legal requirement that's provided by SAP success factors, but it's not the case with Workday. Another thing that can be… more»

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

Workday is an expensive solution.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be to make sure that they understand their requirements. They must have detailed process requirements, and if they see some gaps, they should identify those gaps up front. Workday can be flexible in this regard, so… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at SAP SuccessFactors and in terms of the functional checklists, they're very similar. So if you've got a company and if you look at the functional requirements list or business requirements list, generally they will both meet the… more»

What is most valuable?

It is quite user-friendly. We can store all the employee data information on it.

How has it helped my organization?

It stores everything for the employee. It has also been able to store the information that we use for our payroll demand.

What needs improvement?

I cannot really use Workday, because they don't have worker payroll in the product. We have to solve our payroll. I hope one day they will be able to have their own… more»

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

With a bigger budget, I would recommend SAP.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did have another solution previously. We switched because we required something that was available regionally in order for us to keep track of employee data.

What other advice do I have?

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * It works for all the countries that we have. * We are able to implement it. * It can handle all the necessary modules… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I actually preferred SAP HCM. Comparatively, I felt that SAP HCM is more comprehensive, cost competitive, and the salary and payroll in the country is available. It has… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the reporting. HCM prepares reports that describe the performance and other details. The user interface is good and very easy to use.

What needs improvement?

The security console should be made less complex. This way, if anybody wants access to a particular business object then they can simply send a request to access the corresponding parts. Once the administrator sees the request, they can set permissions to specify whether the user has access or not… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have experience with database-based ERP systems and this solution is easier to use.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to first prepare the company so that Workday will best support the organization. You need to integrate it properly into the business. After that is the security configuration, which is the complex part. Moving to a cloud solution after using… more»

What is most valuable?

Stability in one single version is the most valuable feature of this solution. It's actually a cloud-native solution and based on the community for development. It is a very good open architecture and… more»

What needs improvement?

Reporting system should be improved. It is quite static based on historical data. It misses features relative with predictive analytics. For the data-driven organization, it is not on par. The second… more»

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

I was completely satisfied with the technical support. There are no bugs or performance issues.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

It was local and basically all spread, so each country used their own local HR system. So we didn't replace HCM by HCM.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have used SAP HCM and Oracle Taleo.

What is most valuable?

Performance and good usability are the two most valuable features of this solution.

What needs improvement?

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. Then it becomes complicated because then it takes time to integrate. The workforce management also needs improvement. In the next release, I would like a complete full-stack for HR, especially payroll abilities in all countries. At a high-level… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Workday a seven out of ten. No software would get a ten because there is no existing software on the market that is perfect.

What do you think of Workday?

What is our primary use case?

This is our one system for data and analytics, which is mobile-enabled and has a nice UX.

How has it helped my organization?

The solution has allowed leaders to self-serve. We have fewer systems, less manual data entry, and less processing. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the HCM, where all of the information and processes are in one place.

What needs improvement?

There is a lot of complexity in the configuration of this solution.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three years.
