Why Technology Companies Are Choosing Workday

Tech companies face a litany of challenges to stay competitive. Here’s why Salesforce chose Workday Financial Management to drive its next generation of growth.

We’re proud to share that Salesforce, the global leader in customer relationship management, has chosen Workday Financial Management to support the company on its path to $50 billion in revenue. The expansion provides Salesforce, a longtime user of Workday Human Capital Management, a single system that brings together finance and human resources (HR) to drive growth and navigate change.

Salesforce chose Workday Financial Management, Workday Adaptive Planning, and Workday Prism Analytics to drive greater agility and efficiency as it scales. Specifically, Workday will help enable Salesforce to more quickly establish new international operations, assimilate acquisitions, model multiple scenarios, and eliminate manual processes and disparate systems.

Salesforce joins a growing group of technology companies that have chosen Workday Financial Management as their system of record, including Netflix, TripAdvisor, Match, Blue Yonder, HackerOne, and LiveRamp.

While tech companies are often at the forefront of innovation, they still have plenty that keeps their leaders up at night—from ambitious growth targets to realizing immediate value on mergers and acquisitions. Often, rapid growth and global expansion can be challenging for information flow and visibility. Disparate systems can lead to siloed data, compounding integration difficulties—it can be a recipe for disaster or, at the very least, lead to significant frustration. 

So what are tech companies doing to solve these issues and make a sustainable path forward? Very often, like Salesforce, they’re choosing Workday. When they do, they gain a holistic view of finance, human resources, and operational data in a unified system with an intelligent data core. They can expand into new markets and geographies with ease, since Workday has been deployed in 175 countries. And Workday Financial Management makes it easy to spin up new entities, incorporate acquisitions, or reorganize a business, so companies can quickly respond to a changing—and competitive—landscape.

Welcome to Workday Financial Management, Salesforce. We’re thankful to be a part of your journey—the best is yet to come.
