You wouldn’t think of investing in a pricey and cutting-edge smartphone and only using the thing to talk on. Would you? It certainly wouldn’t be very smart, and what a waste of technology. That’s why you need to partner up when it comes to Workday. Deployment is one thing but it’s quite another to make the most of your popular new system, and you need help to do it. What you need is a team that specializes in all of Workday’s features.

Here’s what you need to know about optimizing your Workday implementation.

The Issue

The fact is that 80% of IT clients use just 20% of the features in their new software. It would be a ginormous waste of time and money if that happens with you and Workday. If your operations aren’t becoming leaner and more efficient, or if you’re seeing no marked benefit from your investment, you need to bring someone in to help you. Chances are that your already overworked IT team doesn’t have the Workday expertise to get in front of technical issues rather than react to them.

Workday Considerations

Yes, Workday offers a full suite of functionality for your enterprise. In that, it’s hard to top. However, with that naturally comes some complexities in terms of ease of use.  Establishing just the right process for, say, payroll can be confounding or something of a challenge. And yes, Workday provides a myriad of ways to tailor the system to best suit your needs, but it can be difficult to know when to produce your own option or stick with a certain feature.

To remedy that, figure out what Workday areas are not cutting it for your company or users. Then, do the same for stuff that does work, while mulling ways even that can be enhanced. You should also familiarize yourself with Workday best practices and get your staff the training and tools it needs to solve any future issues.

The Importance of Workday Partnerships

Workday has signed on with a host of global and regional firms to help organizations launch Workday and continually adopt new capabilities. These Workday partners have extensive training and expertise with the proprietary software. In short, you need one to help you wring the most from your investment.
