Here are some Workday Financial alternatives Toolsmetric recommend you to see before opting this software for your business :
With Workday Financial Management, I am able to take care of and find things I need, myself. Instead of going to higher management and telling them that I need to change information, or requesting something from them, a lot of the time it's available for me in Workday and I can get it myself instead of for one, having to wait, and two I am saving them time.
- What I like most about Workday is that I can electronically access all of my payslips which prevents me from losing them if they were to be physical copies. I also like that I can track my career's performance history including raises, goals and achievements.
- I like all the features of this program, the only thing I could suggest is to somewhat organize it more to make it easier to find what you're looking for. At times I find myself getting lost down the rabbit hole of the software trying to look for something.
