In today’s rapidly evolving educational landscape, institutions are under increasing pressure to adapt to changing technologies and administrative demands while continuing to place student needs at the top of the priority list and delivering exceptional student experiences.

From guiding institutions through the initial setup to providing ongoing support and customization after the initial Go-Live date, Workday Student consultants act as critical allies for colleges and universities and play a crucial role in ensuring educational organizations harness the full potential of Workday.

In this article, we delve into the multifaceted role of a Workday Student Consultant, exploring the invaluable expertise they bring and the tangible benefits they deliver in driving institutional success and student satisfaction.

The Role of a Workday Student Consultant in Student Success

Implementing and managing a student information system like Workday Student can be quite a daunting ask without the right support and resources.

This is where external Workday Student consultants come in, offering top-tier support for existing internal teams and providing valuable insight to improve the efficiency and productivity of key project initiatives. They serve as strategic partners for educational institutions, leveraging their expertise in Workday Student implementation and optimization projects to enhance administrative processes and improve overall student success.

By partnering with trusted client-side consultants (like the ones at Surety Systems), higher education institutions can ensure their Workday Student system is configured to align with institutional goals and objectives and support continuous improvement through improved data analysis and in-depth insights into student-facing processes.

  • Understand institutional requirements to facilitate effective Workday Student development
  • Support effective system testing and knowledge transfer to customers
  • Facilitate the transfer of historical data from legacy systems to a new Workday Student system
