Workday Room for 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 better, is the flexibility of the screens. Sometimes I find it hard to customize the screen and that is quite frustrating. But that's actually one of their selling points as well. So they are pretty good, I have to say. Setting up reports can be a bit tricky, and I've also noticed that integration with payroll can sometimes be an issue with Workday. View full review »

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 localized standard payrolls for all countries. In terms of reporting, we have to rely on a consultant to do the report customization. If we have an employee who is working for two or three countries, we don't have a simple global employee number to keep track of them, because then you have to use a separate employee number for different countries. The most important thing is to be able to do your own reporting, which it can't do. We rely so much on our consultant to customize reports for us. Also, if you want to have authorization of certain roles, there is a lot of inflexibility in how the authorizations can be set. For time management, it does not have a calendar generator. For example, if you want to have a shift calendar for an entire year, you need to push the entire year's calendar into the system instead of being able to generate it using a time management pattern.

Analytical tools have needed improvement. Workday has just released Prism Analytics, to replace the current analytical tools, so it’s in the early stages. Workday has great reporting capabilities today, but if we don’t have a fully consolidated system we need the ability to marry that external data with the Workday data to perform analytics. Prism will enable this to occur. View full review »

Co-CIO & Enterprise Architect at a printing company with 1,001-5,000 employees
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, this solution has everything else that is needed. View full review »
