Overall experience was very good. Because of good involvement from top management, steering committee and key stakeholders we were able to move fast with policy and procedure decisions. In the hindsight, we should have given more time to payroll testing. We should have spend more time in planning for conversion from legacy to Workday as it required major changes to legacy data as well as creating and updating new entities such as Supverviory Org structure while the project was in progress. Workday vendor also worked very closely with us to degin and build new functionality to suit Higher Ed requirements such as Activity Pay etc.

Workday is a strong vendor and is easy to work with. We did not encounter any issues that we would have considered out of the ordinary for any large implementation. When problems did arise, Workday was responsive and easy to work with. Business processes within Workday are comprehensive. It is not always easy or intuitive on how to do certain things. There is a large learning cover for the administrative users of Workday. The integratons can be complex and are tightly coupled to the forms in Workday in order to get the necessary data. A lot of time and focus should be spent in this area to ensure that there is no lose of information between systems.

Workday has replaced SAP and later ADP in the managing of human resources, employee evaluations, payroll and human process. The shift in usability for the final user is outstanding, and the resulting processes have been streamlined by a long shot

Not sure whether it's the tool or the business decisions we made - hard to tell which - but the tool has a lot of variable functionality and so things aren't always clear. We had complicated integrations too.

The project though it had some hiccups was overall a great success. On time launch under budget. Lots of business processes were streamlined and optimized resulting in substantial improvements in cycle time. Very user friendly interface -- 85-90% engagement across all countries and regions within 2-3 weeks

Much of the Workday functionality for the Higher Ed market is relatively new. We are working continually with our peers in the sector to define the best ways to use Workday HCM. This will be a great product in a couple of years for our sector; for right now, it's definitely a work in progress.

Workday as a product is very nice, I loved the way it is designed and it matter a lot to us. The way they have designed the Security is awesome, end use interface, meta data structure, Pure SaaS model is way apart from its competetior.

Overall experience was satisfactory given that we went live with an evolving product with some feature gaps. Workday to their credit was willing to work with us and accomodate some of these enhancements in their roadmap.
