Optimizing core business processes
With functional AMS solutions, Workday customers can adapt their existing applications and business processes to better align with changes in their organization and best practices across the entire technical landscape.
And, whether you need assistance with day-to-day operations within your Workday Financial Management solution or additional Workday support for a longer-term optimization project, services can be provided to help your team make the most of your investments.
Keeping up with the latest Workday functionality
When a need for a new Workday module or advanced functionality arises across your organization, finding the right resources to help with the job is essential to your success.
Workday AMS services can help implement your new solutions and train your internal employees to ensure each area of your Workday ecosystem is operating correctly over time.

Managing complex Workday configuration needs
Whether you need help updating existing Workday configurations to meet evolving business requirements or additional support outlining plans for new configurations that weren’t part of your initial Workday implementation plan, Workday AMS provides the services needed to handle configuration complexity and align with changing business needs.

Why Choose Surety Over Traditional Managed Service Firms?

Let’s take a closer look at a few of the key characteristics that set our consultants apart…
Instead of submitting a Workday ticket and not knowing who will complete it (like traditional managed service firms), our clients have a dedicated Workday consultant who can support them with day-to-day or project-based needs, ensuring tasks are aligned with their actual needs, and not our bottom line.
Our team works to provide the “best-fit” consultants for your project, not just the most convenient option, guaranteeing our consultant’s skills and experience are aligned with your project needs, no matter what.
Agile and Flexible Solutions
With our team of dedicated consultants, you can rest easy knowing your project needs will be met, no matter the complexity, duration, or requirements of each project. Our Workday consultants are flexible and agile, allowing you to keep the same resources even if your project ends up requiring more work than just a simple service ticket.
We tailor our solutions to meet your unique needs and facilitate better relationships between clients and consulting teams, making it easier for you to have one-on-one interaction with your support system and maintain trust in your solutions over time.
Better Resource Allocation
Our consulting model at Surety Systems allows your team to use less resources and less people to do the same job with the same quality. And, because our team of senior-level consultants is US-based, we can ensure your project needs are covered during business hours, providing a more consistent and reliable experience for everyone involved.
With better allocation of your resources and your people, your company can not only complete projects more efficiently, but also reduce service escalations and wait times when trying to align your Workday solutions to keep up with changing business challenges.
