PLEASANTON, Calif. & LONDON, Dec 17, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) — DayNine Consulting ( www.daynine.com ), a leading global Workday services partner, was selected by Cambridge University Press (“the Press”) to deploy their Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) solution. The announcement marks the latest development in DayNine’s growing European presence. The Press selected DayNine for the company’s leadership in delivering successful global Workday solutions on time and on budget. DayNine will provide the Press with a single global enterprise HCM system utilizing Workday HCM, Cloud Connect for HCM and Cloud Connect for a third-party payroll system.
Currently managing information for over 2,000 employees at 50 offices around the world with different systems, the Press selected Workday’s unified HCM solution after thorough market evaluation. With DayNine’s expertise, the Press will achieve a single system-of-record centralizing all global HR information. Further, integration with the Press’s existing payroll and Finance systems is expected to dramatically reduce costs as well as staff time in managing the data. Taking advantage of DayNine’s proven experience with global Workday deployments and integrations, the Press will gain greater visibility and insight to its current workforce and will see benefits arising from a single source of its colleague data.
Founded in 1534 in Cambridge, United Kingdom, Cambridge University Press is part of the University of Cambridge and furthers the University’s mission by disseminating knowledge in the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence. Its publishing lists comprise over 50,000 titles covering academic research, professional development, over 300 research journals, school-level education, English language teaching and Bible publishing. This list is growing at a rate of nearly 4,000 ISBNs every year and spans subjects from aesthetics through to zoology.
“As a global publisher with operations around the world, it is essential that we have complete insight to our talented global workforce,” said Cathy Armor, Director for People at the Press. “It was the global, cloud-based solutions of Workday that best matched our requirements, combined with DayNine’s Workday expertise and proven ability to complete complex, global deployments on time and within budget.”
DayNine’s Advanced Data services will enable the Press to easily convert existing HCM data from numerous home-grown systems. The project will take full advantage of DayNine’s predictable deployment methods to go-live at the Press in early 2014.
“We are excited to be working with an organization of The Press’s calibre,” said Colin Anderson, Vice President and GM, EMEA and APJ, for DayNine. “This new project will leverage our close global Workday partnership, enabling The Press to fully utilize the extensive Workday capabilities. The potential to have broader and more intuitive desktop and mobile access to employee information will enable more informed decision-making. Employees and managers will also benefit from our extensive experience deploying Workday’s entire solution suite.”
