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?

The platform itself is very robust and I generally like the reporting and analytics capability.

What needs improvement?

The UI, UX (user experience) is very bad. It is not very interactive. As a user, when they look at Workday, they find it difficult to navigate. If they have any queries, I am not able to launch a case. I have to find a solution to my issues. For an IT user, it might look like a large platform but… more»

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

We are currently using ServiceNow and we integrate it with Workday.

What other advice do I have?

I am working with a product called ServiceNow, but we use Workday for some interfaces. We help with the integration and data from Workday. We are using Workday for our client's companies. Our company is part of Bitpro and we use our internal systems. The technical support needs to improve in… 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?

I haven't had a chance to go into things too deeply yet, but I like that it's intuitive to use, a very usable tool and it's easy to find the data you're looking for. I've worked with SAP before, and that's much more complicated. I also use the My Learning tool regularly. It's very good.

What needs improvement?

For now, it's difficult for me to come up with anything that needs improvement. It's possible that the way things are integrated could be improved but if you've used SAP then Workday is actually pretty good. It depends where you've come from. I think they do a good job.

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

I worked with Oracle previously and I prefer the Workday interface. I also prefer the Workday reporting.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this product an eight out of 10.

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.

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