Benefits of Workday

Software as a Service (SAAS)

Workday lives completely in the cloud, meaning all software and data are delivered to users over the internet. No software installation is needed, which reduces cost and allows for the software to be continually upgraded without disruption.


All of Workday’s 700+ clients are using the same version of their software, resulting in a community with unprecedented levels of communication and collaboration.

Secure and Reliable Infrastructure

Data is safe and secure as Workday follows rigorous security safeguards. Because all users are always on the same software version, Workday can quickly respond to security threats by pushing security updates to all users.

Improved Reporting

Data and reporting provided by Workday will give Goucher leadership information they need to make important decisions, all in one place, and with far greater capabilities than those that currently exist.

Mobile Capability

Performing HR and Finance tasks on the go is easy with Workday’s phone or tablet app.

Intuitive and Responsive Design

Workday’s user-friendly design makes it feel like the websites you’re used to (Facebook, Netflix, banking sites, etc.). Users can easily do what they need to do from the moment they log in.

Self-Service for Employees and Managers

Faculty and staff have the ability to update or access their information privately from any computer or mobile device with internet connection.


Workday easily integrates with other applications that Goucher may choose to use in the future.
