Workday Consultants Facilitate Integration

Founded over 85 years ago, the client plays a critical role in the transport and supply chain functions for over 50,000 customers throughout North America. Companies across sectors routinely partner with the client to gain access to their large fleet of commercial and rental trucks, maintenance facilities, and top-of-line warehouses to distribute their products. And with thousands of technicians and drivers on staff, the client boasts a 99% on time delivery rate, making them a leader in the industry.

Key Challenges

Being a multi-faceted organization with hundreds PTO plans, it was important that the client have a unified solution for human capital management. They had recently finished the first phase of a Workday integration, and had taken next steps to properly configure their new system. They attempted to complete the task using internal resources from various departments but, lacking expertise, this approach was unsuccessful. It became increasingly clear they would require the assistance of Certified Workday Partner to effectively implement Workday across their organization.

Solution

Both Workday and the client’s initial Integration Partner recommended OmniPoint Staffing – now part of Planet Technology— for helping them fill key roles. Planet Technology is a certified Workday Staffing Partner with premier access to qualified Workday consultants, and quickly got to work recruiting Workday professionals to streamline the client’s integration.

Since working together, Planet Technology has staffed 21 Workday contract consultants with the client. Placed positions have touched various aspects of the client’s Workday configuration. Key areas include their Core HCM, financial integrations, security, and Prism—Workday’s self-service analytics tool. Additionally, several consultants were brought on to properly integrate the client’s various PTO plans with Workday’s Time and Absence, Benefits, and Payroll systems.

Results

As a result of this engagement, the client is now live on Workday’s Core HCM and the Fins. The integration allows the client to reduce overall costs related to HR and payroll processes, giving them additional insight into their core financials. The client was also able to reduce costs through simplified employee self-service, freeing up internal HR talent that would otherwise have to manage these functions.

Planet Technology is providing Workday contract resources to the client on an ongoing basis. Currently we’re integrating other aspects of their business in order to more effectively use Workday going forward.
