Workday is an end-to-end, unified cloud platform consisting of financials, HCM, payroll, student, grants, planning, and analytics functionality. Designed for today’s mobile generation, Workday delivers a superior alternative for modern colleges and universities still using outdated legacy technology to run their campuses. Workday unites the entire campus under one modern, configurable, easy-to-use application that delivers rich analytics and insights to help you achieve your institutional goals.
Workday Student, the latest application to be delivered, is a full lifecycle solution that includes Student Recruiting, Student Admissions, Curriculum Management, Student Records, Academic Advising, Financial Aid, and Student Financials. The only higher-education-focused application built in this century, Workday Student was released in a phased approach in fall 2014 and was made generally available in fall 2016. All or part of Workday Student is currently in full use or in the deployment/planning stages at more than 60 institutions.
Founded in 2005, Workday serves more than 140 higher education institutions that range in size from small liberal arts colleges to large public research institutions and state systems. Here in the northeast, higher education institutions such as Amherst College, Babson College, Bentley University, Berklee College of Music, Brandeis University, Rhode Island School of Design, Simmons University, Smith College, Suffolk University, Wellesley College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and many others are realizing the benefits of unifying financial management, human capital management, payroll, student services, faculty engagement and business intelligence in one modern, agile, easy-to-use system.
