Workday, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, announced that Sky Betting & Gaming, a leading UK online betting and gaming company, has selected Workday's unified suite of applications, including Workday Financial Management, Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), Workday Payroll, Workday Procurement, and Workday Expenses. Following the sale of its majority share by its parent company Sky to CVC Capital Partners, the company selected Workday as it wanted a finance and HR system that could support the business as it grows and be deployed quickly to support the divestiture. Sky Betting & Gaming wanted to keep its infrastructure and resource investments to a minimum, but also required a system that was easily configurable and able to scale and adapt with the business. After a comprehensive evaluation process, Sky Betting & Gaming concluded that only Workday offered a single, unified system in the cloud that met its business needs.
With Workday, Sky Betting & Gaming expects to gain benefits including:
• A Flexible Technology Foundation that Evolves as the Company Grows: With Workday's flexible architecture and simple configuration, Sky Betting & Gaming will be able to meet aggressive timescales for deployment and will have a system in place that can adapt to new market demands such as regulatory changes within the online gaming market.
• A Single, Unified System to Drive Better Decisions: With finance and HR applications in one cloud-based system, Sky Betting & Gaming employees, managers, and executives will have a single source of real-time data to make informed, timely decisions. With insights at their fingertips, managers will be able to more effectively run the financial side of the business while growing, developing, and retaining their most valuable resource -- their people.
• A User Experience that Meets the Needs of its Modern Workforce: With a large number of millennial employees, Sky Betting & Gaming requires consumer-like business applications that are engaging and accessible on the go. With Workday's intuitive user experience and mobile capabilities, Sky Betting & Gaming employees will be able to easily access information and perform tasks whenever and wherever necessary.
"With Workday, we will have a single, unified suite of applications in the cloud that meets all of our functional requirements and gives us greater confidence in our data outputs during this key phase of our growth," said Karen Elenor, Transition Director at Sky Betting & Gaming. "We are aiming to be the best UK digital workplace, and this means having finance and HR systems that are intuitive and allow self-service and manager empowerment."
"Sky Betting & Gaming's decision to move its finance and HR operations to the cloud underscores Workday's ability to help companies manage significant change while building for the future," said Chano Fernandez, president, EMEA, Workday. "With Workday, Sky Betting & Gaming will now have a unified system that delivers the intuitive user experience and real-time insights required to better engage with its workforce, optimize its resources, and fuel the company's next stage of growth."
