Workday Inc., the leader in SaaS-based enterprise solutions for global human resources (HR), payroll, and financial management, recently announced that Guggenheim Partners LLC has deployed Workday Financial Management and Human Capital Management. Guggenheim, a privately held global financial services firm, is utilizing the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model for core business applications and leveraging critical insights gained through Workday to support its global expansion.

What’s New

Guggenheim is a diversified financial services company with more than $125 billion of assets under management. It required advanced, scalable solutions to support its growth and entrance into new markets.

Workday Financial Management provides Guggenheim with:

  • Dramatically reduced general ledger complexity, while increasing the richness of multi-dimensional reports.
  • Built-in configurable and transparent workflows to rapidly adapt to legal and regulatory changes and support financial compliance, governance, and auditing capabilities across the company.

As a unified system with actionable analytics, Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) and Financial Management give Guggenheim:

  • Financial insight into its workforce, the work performed, and the cost and value of that work.
  • Analytics to support decisions about the hiring, deployment, and cost of talent.

Workday’s SaaS-based infrastructure provides Guggenheim with:

  • A modern object-oriented technology foundation that will serve the firm’s current and future business needs without the need for software customizations.
  • New innovation in updates that Workday delivers to all customers three times a year, which frees the firm from the upgrades-and-maintenance cycle required of onsite software.

“Guggenheim Partners is an impressive firm on a brilliant growth streak,” said Dave Duffield, Workday co-CEO and co-founder. “We are delighted Guggenheim recognized Workday as the provider that will best support its continued expansion, and is already seeing the benefits of that decision.”
