Imagine you are in the market for a new Mercedes. You can finally afford the G-class wagon and want it at the best price. Do you go to the official Mercedes dealership and pay an inflated markup or do go to a local dealership that will sell you the exact same model at an affordable price? Much like buying a car, when purchasing the Workday software for your business, you want the best deal---the “Black Friday” deal.
The value of purchasing the Workday Platform through an authorized reseller is that you to get the “Black Friday” deals every day. No longer do you have to wait until the day after Thanksgiving to receive the deals but can get them 365 days a year.
For a mid-market company, how do you get enterprise level services at a cost point you can afford? What is driving those decisions? Mid-market companies cannot afford the operating tools that mega- giants, in the industry, can. Typically, cost is a large factor for most mid-market companies in purchasing an HR software package. Below are a few factors you might want to consider when choosing a robust HR platform for your mid-market needs:
- It is important to think about the implementation timeline. An efficient Implementation methodology that is proven in the market can only mean value and less delay for you. While some ERP implementers can take up to five years for a total Workday implementation, others can complete the same process in as little as six months. What is your time worth?
- Once the Implementation is over and you have gone live on your new platform, you have to learn how to use it. The key to successful implementation is absolute user adoption. Employees will only embrace technology when they are confident in their ability to use it and agile enough to keep pace with it. Simply put, there is no option in adoption. Your end users must learn and understand the software or the results will not be as effective.
- After you have learned how to use the software and understand the basics, what happens when you have a technical issue? Services are offered through various platforms. Some services offer basic support while others offer premium “continued” support, based on your needs.
- Return on investment is another key component in decision making. Everyone wants to see the ROI with software purchase. This is understandable, and another reason to consider the added value of a swift and efficient implementation, training for your end users to be up and going immediately and support that will be with your organization as long as the software is being used.
