What needs improvement?They can work on getting the clients to work on their support model. Most of the client's current support model for their legacy system will be quite different to what it… more»

The API’s have enabled us to deliver reliable automation. Reliable, auditable integration has reduced the complexity and cost of our ongoing audits.
What is most valuable?The API’s have enabled us to really deliver reliable automation to the company. This isn’t just critical, because we can create ease of use, though that is really nice. Reliable, auditable integration… more»
How has it helped my organization?If there was something to really point out here, it isn’t what Workday has done or offers, but what it hasn’t done that has been so powerful. We struggled to have successful implementations… more»
What needs improvement?There is too much of a one-at-a-time concept in the workflow. The system is designed with the object model in mind, which is brilliant. Transition from one thing to the next is a never-ending… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?When we priced out this system, it was one of the most expensive solutions when compared straight up with other HCM replacements. The trick is in seeing its total cost now and going forward in… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We are an Oracle shop and used the HCM module. The switch was our push to focus on HR as a product in a best-of-breed approach, as the implementation we had in our ERP was largely ignored and… more»
What other advice do I have?Don’t dip your toe in the water, jump in. With a solution like this there are great returns to be had, but you need to invest in really using the API’s, building automation with workflows and… more»

We don't need to provide much training for the users because it is easy to navigate. The Payroll module is not usable for Asian countries.
What is most valuable?It has lots of built in reports. I can copy the report and modify it instead of spending time on studying which table is the one I need to use. Each field also has its description, although sometimes… more»
How has it helped my organization?Employee Self-Service and Manager Self-Service are not additional products to implement and they can save time for HR operations. Workday also offers a lot of HR modules that facilitate us to do… more»
What needs improvement?For reporting, Workday only allows users to select which table to join, and it defaults everything. It should allow users to specify the type of join table (inner join / left join / right join /… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?The group previously used different systems for different countries. We centralize a team of system support for the group. It is more cost efficient in terms of support and maintenance.
What other advice do I have?Check carefully whether Workday supports payroll in your country; otherwise it takes additional costs and efforts to build integration.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We did not have other options, as it is a group decision. If I had an option, I would choose PeopleSoft, because HCM and payroll could be in one system.

I've used it for operational and detailed reporting and some low-level analytics. The community is super helpful.
What is most valuable?I primarily used the report writer; have some experience with EIB integrations as well.
How has it helped my organization?My personal organization does not use it. However, in my clients’ organizations, people really seemed to like the user interface, and the community has been extremely helpful. The regular releases are also very nice. Reporting is a bit of a learning curve coming from an ERP built on a standard… more»
What needs improvement?It's great for operational / detailed reporting and some low-level analytics, but for heavy-duty analysis against large data sets, I find it's a bit lacking. For instance, the indexed data sources only work when using non-calculated fields. Most clients have a TON of calculated fields used for… more»
What other advice do I have?The reporting capability is perfectly adequate in 90% of cases, given the requisite training. For "heavy-duty" analytics across very large datasets, consider the integration required for integrating with an on-premise data warehouse, for example... There will be considerable additional overhead in… more»
