News Brief: Workday Sees Continued Momentum in the State of Texas as Local Governments Select and Deploy Workday

PLEASANTON, Calif., August 9, 2023 -- Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced continued momentum in the state of Texas with the cities of Amarillo and Austin, and the counties of Bell, Galveston, and Nueces selecting Workday applications. They join more than a dozen local government and special district organizations in Texas deploying or in production with Workday, including the cities of Arlington, Dallas, Garland, and Georgetown.

Workday is the partner of choice for more than 320 global public sector customers, serving federal, national, state, municipal, and local governments of varying sizes and population ranges.

With Workday solutions, customers are able to:

  • Leverage one system for finance and HR with a single source of truth and embedded artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to help manage, automate, and optimize business processes.
  • Enhance budgeting and reporting to improve decision-making and better align with strategic plans to support mission-critical objectives.
  • Deliver engaging employee experiences by eliminating manual data entries and automating finance and HR functions so employees have one place to access and view all their information, including benefits, expenses, budgeting, payroll, procurement, and more.

“Enterprise resource planning software is the backbone of any organization. It’s not just Accounting, HR, Finance, Purchasing, and Payroll — it’s all the automated processes that make an organization run. As such, our Workday software update is the most impactful, critical update the city has done,” said Richard Gagnon, CIO, City of Amarillo, Texas. “With Workday, we’re able to stay accountable and improve transparency — with each other and with the public. We anticipate that our partnership with Workday will save taxpayers around $1.8 million dollars.”

“Workday has a modern feel that will be more attractive to end users,” said Tina Entrop, County Auditor, County of Bell. “And it will provide the county with access to real-time data that we can slice and dice to get the information needed, when we need it.”

In the state of Texas, Workday often partners with Precision Task Group, Inc., which offers Workday products through the Texas Department of Information Resources via the Texas DIR-TSO-4242 contract vehicle.
