Fewer Ancillary Systems, More Benefits
There are many benefits to standardizing business processes across the UW System. Workday will not only handle most of our administrative needs, but it will also replace a number of ancillary systems that no longer serve us well.
Hundreds of our current, disparate systems create significant challenges for staff. Most do not provide consistent processes and reporting across departments, campuses, and the UW System.
By implementing Workday, we can replace or retire many of the 1,600+ ancillary systems we inventoried. The transition will enhance the UW System’s ability to fulfill its research, teaching, and outreach mission by providing more accurate information and streamlined processes.
In this issue of ATP Touchpoints, you’ll learn about the thoughtful and deliberate process we followed to help the decision makers from your institution determine whether to keep, replace, or retire existing ancillary systems.
