The Digital Transformation Award highlights the use of Workday solutions and technologies by retail and hospitality customers to digitally transform operations instead of merely improving existing IT infrastructure, business practices, or processes.
This year’s winner, Innisfree Hotels, is recognized for transforming its nightly auditor process (processing guest payments, reconciling cash, balancing reports, and preparing invoices for the next day) from a cumbersome, disparate approach into a singular and familiar Workday application with Workday Extend, Workday Prism Analytics, and Workday Accounting Center.
This gave Innisfree Hotels the ability to maintain mapping and custom transformation, and keep the entire process in-house. The solution also provides “infinite” extendibility with 100% data ownership, providing the hospitality company complete control over data, mapping, and bank reconciliation groups.
Another key outcome for Innisfree Hotels is the ability to report on its data exactly how leaders want, in reports, dashboards, discovery boards, and Workday Adaptive Planning. Through this project, they moved the entire process to Workday, eliminating the need for third-party credentials, making “one-click” approvals by property managers possible, and making their data much more available and accessible through native reporting in Workday.
