Salesforce enhances business processes with Workday

Salesforce has expanded its use of Workday to support growth across the organization and support its workforce. The news comes as Workday hosts its annual Workday Rising event in Florida this week.

The company has selected Workday Financial Management, Workday Accounting Center, Workday Adaptive Planning, and Workday Prism Analytics, building on its existing use of Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), Workday Recruiting, Workday Time Tracking, and Workday Payroll for US and Canada.

With Workday Enterprise Management Cloud, Salesforce can collect finance, HR, and operational data in one adaptable system, providing greater insights, agility, and improved overall employee experience.

The Workday product offers an intelligent data core combining finance and HR insights, quick response time, streamlining the procurement process, the analytical foundation to ingest and transform high volumes of operational activity, and continued insights into its workforce.

Faye Olson, senior vice president of Business Technology, Enterprise Enablement, Salesforce, said: “We’ve seen first-hand the opportunity for cloud technologies in helping our customers drive better relationships with their customers. We apply the same mindset to our own technology strategy – focusing on innovative solutions that create an agile foundation for us to adapt and grow. Workday’s financial management and HR solutions offer a single system to create collaborative opportunities for our finance and HR organizations.”

Doug Robinson, co-president, Workday, said: “As innovators in the cloud, both Salesforce and Workday understand the value of technology in driving digital transformation as organizations adapt to keep pace in today’s dynamic environment. Salesforce’s expanded use of Workday to include financial management underscores the power of a comprehensive digital backbone in navigating change and bringing finance and HR insights together to drive growth.”

Other news from Workday Rising has also seen Workday launch a new industry program to accelerate customer cloud transformations. The company’s Industry Accelerators, as they are called, will target banking, healthcare, insurance, and technology sectors.

Initial Industry Accelerator partners include Accenture, Deloitte, KPMG, and PwC.
