Workday has announced an expanded collaboration with Kainos, a digital technology company, to empower businesses to go live with Workday technology in less than four weeks.

The companies have launched the joint offering “Spark&Grow”, designed to help emerging and medium-sized enterprises deploy Workday quickly.

Key benefits of the new offering include simplicity, speed and support. Kainos will deploy Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) and Workday Financial Management in a streamlined process, within four weeks, while offering guidance and support from experts, all throughout the deployment journey.

Spark&Grow is a monthly subscription offer that promises customers more predictability and flexibility. The offer also complements the existing implementation options of Workday Launch and Workday Launch Express.

With Spark&Grow, customers can expect to receive continued support after they go live through user adoption, training and ongoing optimization. Managed services will support customers throughout their transformation journey whenever they need it and as a result, customers will be able to save time and see savings in team planning.

Angelique de Vries-Schipperijn, president, EMEA at Workday, said: “We are thrilled to join forces with Kainos to introduce an innovative offering that helps growing businesses leverage Workday’s powerful capabilities.
