Administrative systems currently running at most colleges and universities were designed decades ago. Due to the inflexibility of these now antiquated technologies, institutions have been forced to cobble together disparate systems to address their evolving administrative needs. These costly, rigid systems simply cannot keep up with the rate of change facing today’s institutions.

Workday offers a better alternative. Workday’s unified administrative solution includes key components that stay current with your institution’s changing needs in Human Resources, Talent and Faculty Management, Benefits, Payroll, and Financial Management. With a SaaS solution, you can free up your IT team to focus on other critical university-related projects rather than spending resources on maintaining administrative systems.
