Aurecon to adopt Workday Financial Management for future-ready workforce
All of Aurecon’s financial systems will be unified in Workday Financial Management.
16 October 2019 – Global engineering, design and advisory company Aurecon has become the first engineering firm across Australia and New Zealand to adopt Workday Financial Management as part of Aurecon’s strategy to build a future-ready workforce.
Aurecon Chief Financial Officer Francoise Merit said that Workday Financial Management complemented Aurecon’s existing investments in Workday Human Capital Management and Workday Learning, providing an agile platform to support Aurecon’s growth ambitions whilst providing the flexibility required in a competitive market.
Workday will enable Aurecon’s people, projects and finance ecosystems to improve operational efficiencies, maximise revenue growth and deliver improved employee and client experiences.
“We have chosen to make this investment as part of Aurecon’s continued focus in becoming a future-ready company, freeing up engineers and leaders to do what they do best – plan, engineer, design and offer advice that matters to our clients,” Merit said.
“Aurecon selected Workday to help attract top talent and build a workforce fit for the future. Workday Financial Management will enable us to remove rigid, complex finance processes and allow our employees to engage with our systems anywhere, anytime and on any device. It will provide us with the flexibility to adapt to rapidly moving markets and take advantage of opportunities to grow as required.”
“As our client projects increasingly require sophisticated digital technologies, we need to evolve our corporate operations to keep pace. Workday Financial Management will make it easier for clients to work with us. Ultimately, this user-friendly, intuitive application will enable us to improve decision-making and better manage our people, finances, projects and pursuits, as we collaborate with clients to bring their ideas to life,” Merit said.
Commenting at Workday Rising in Orlando, Fla. where Aurecon participated in a Business Strategy Keynote address, David Webster, president of Workday Asia Pacific and Japan, said, “Aurecon is joining a growing global community of leading organisations that are realising the business value of Workday’s cloud-based system, which enables them to benefit from one source of data, one security model, one experience, and one global community on the same version of the software. Aurecon will now have an agile and scalable foundation that delivers real-time business insights to support its future growth and move the organisation forward.”
All of Aurecon’s financial systems including procurement; fixed asset; expense management; core finance and project finance; accounting; billing; time tracking; banking and settlement; budgets; customer accounts; contracts; and financial and operational reporting will be unified in Workday Financial Management.
