PwC and Workday

Making transformation possible by getting technology right

Businesses are transforming to keep pace with fast-changing markets, competitors and customer expectations. People and finance sit at the heart of that transformation, and Workday’s technology helps you manage both. We can help you harness it in the best way to make the most of your opportunities.

Getting full value from technology

We’ve been helping clients bring Workday’s capabilities to life for more than a decade. And our teams have extensive expertise in all the areas the technology touches, from target operating models, business processes and taxation to risk assurance and change management. That means you’ll get the breadth and depth of skills you need to make Workday fit seamlessly into your business functions and lift your performance.

We’ve also implemented Workday in our own operations around the world. That gives us extra insight not just to help develop the product but to make sure it works in the way that’s best for your busines.

How we can help

HR transformation

PwC’s HCM Solution powered by Workday provides a digital, integrated and powerful platform to help companies achieve a human capital management (HCM) function that does more than just manage human resources data — it helps organizations realize their business objectives.

By delivering end-to-end business transformation capability (including leadership alignment and process optimization) we’ll help you modernize your service delivery and operating model. We’ll also provide an HCM platform that can move as quickly as the business does — one that seamlessly integrates with other aspects of the organization and can deliver powerful analytics to enable better decisions and outcomes.

Finance transformation

PwC’s Financial Transformation solution powered by Workday provides a digital, integrated, and powerful platform to help companies achieve a finance function that does more than just keep the books—it can help reinvent your business.

Too many organizations are still using operating models, technology, and business designs straight out of the 20th century. Companies need a financial management platform that can move as quickly as the business does—one that seamlessly integrates with the other aspects of their business and can deliver visibility and powerful analytics to enable better business decisions and outcomes.

That puts us in an ideal position to bring you everything Workday has to offer in one solution. HCM, Financial Management, Payroll, and Planning and Analytics come together in a single integrated package – and we can also include your existing applications.

Planning and analytics

Workday Adaptive Planning (WAP)’s planning and forecasting capability that gives everyone involved a common view of the data that matters, updated in real time.

It helps you bring as many people into the process as you want, from anywhere and on any device. And you can manage the collaboration smoothly so you get the most from everyone’s contribution.

Prism Analytics helps you make sense of your organisation’s data for clearer reporting and better decision making. It also brings in data from outside and integrates it with your own for a deeper, richer picture of where the business is and where it could go.

Employee experience

It’s time to start thinking differently about your employees; the mindset, behaviours and composition of your workforce are changing.

Business demands and employees needs are evolving, making it crucial to create a culture centered around employee experiences, enabling you to design for those moments that truly matter to employees, removing barriers and driving adoption of new technology, processes or behaviours.

Experience-led transformation is the future. Designing experiences for your employees needs to be at the heart of transformation and ensures your employees will be more productive committed and engaged, driving your profits and ensuring a positive reputation in the market.
