Wouldn’t having an all-encompassing integration platform to help you build, deploy, adapt, and maintain integrations and exchange data between Workday and your other applications be nice?

Well, luckily for you, the Workday Platform can help you achieve just that!

The Workday Cloud Platform leverages internal artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities to help Workday users customize their applications, extend functionality to their other interconnected systems, and maximize their overall investment.

Read on to learn more about the Workday Platform and how our senior-level Workday consultants can help you make the most of your Workday applications.

What is the Workday Platform?

Workday is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendor known for quick implementations, user-friendly interfaces, and easy-to-use applications. The Workday platform is a comprehensive, cloud-based solution that allows users to be proactive and adaptable, ensuring their Workday applications operate as expected and their organizational needs are met. Workday offers many intelligent applications to facilitate better payroll, employee data, benefits, and HR management capabilities.

Here are some perks of the Workday platform:

  • Provides real-time reporting and analytics capabilities, integrated workforce scheduling functions, and a consolidated HR database to help businesses manage their employees, information, and procedures more efficiently.
  • Allows users to track their personal time, attendance, and benefits data and helps organizations manage internal team members and their day-to-day tasks.
  • Enables companies to manage all aspects of human resources (HR), including payroll, compensation, benefits, learning management, recruiting, and talent management, on a single, secure Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform.

Features of the Workday Platform

Here are some key features of the Workday Cloud Platform for business users:

Time Tracking

Workday simplifies time and attendance functions across the entire organization by allowing users to clock in and out for shifts using their desktops, tablets, or mobile devices.

For companies that require them, physical time clocks can also be integrated with Workday through an intelligent API connection.

Talent Management

The Workday Talent Management suite offers resources to support employee growth and development, reward employees, and facilitate better career planning and goal-setting in the long run.

Analytics and Reporting

Workday’s advanced analytics and reporting features offer several tools to help users keep track of employee performance statistics and make well-informed business decisions based on real-time data.


The Workday Recruiting platform efficiently identifies, screens, and hires candidates and facilitates a more efficient hiring process across teams.

With the help of this intelligent software, recruiters have access to a single platform that controls every phase of the hiring process, from finding candidates to reviewing applications and conducting interviews.

Employee Self-Service Tools

The Workday platform offers an easily accessible employee portal that provides important paperwork, onboarding information, and other business documents to facilitate more efficient data entry and management processes across the board. 

Self-service tools also allow managers to personalize the onboarding process for each employee by leveraging a checklist that displays their progress throughout each phase of the employee lifecycle. 

Employees can also access the Workday website and its mobile app capabilities to record their time, clock in and out from any location, and keep up with regular and overtime hours, vacation time, and PTO requests.

Benefits Administration

The Workday Benefits platform delivers a single source of truth for human capital management and benefits data, allowing customers to switch from tactical work to strategic plans and improve accessibility and visibility for critical benefits providers, plans, and packages. 

With intuitive employee benefits management capabilities and intelligent Workday Benefits features, HR teams are empowered to focus on more important tasks, like building relationships with employees and ensuring business processes are aligned with current industry standards and company objectives.

From desktop to mobile, employee benefits administration tools in Workday ensure a smooth benefits experience for users, enabling them to ask questions related to specific benefits plans, compare benefits program requirements, assess eligibility rules, make modifications, and complete benefits enrollment tasks more efficiently.

Financial Management

Instead of manually recording employee transactional data, balancing accounts, and looking for exceptions, Workday allows employees to use their time on more strategic initiatives that boost profitability and support goals for global growth.

With Workday Financials, users can adapt to the ever-changing demands of a complex business environment and ensure their finance processes provide the functionality needed to do so.

Traditional finance solutions are rigid and resistant to change, limiting the amount of time you can save and reallocate to more important business activities and making it harder to evaluate real-time financial performance and make corrections accordingly.

But with Workday, users can leverage intelligent financial management software and an in-memory architecture to support transactions and improve financial accuracy across the board.
