Workforce Management Software Takes Its Rightful Place on the World Software Stage

The time for fully integrated workforce management software (WMS) is now! Recent launches, collaboration, and international partnerships by leading software vendors have further secured the place of the WMS segment as a core business need.

Global industry leaders in this space have moved strategically to offer their clients innovative, time-sensitive solutions that create sustainable, value-driving benefits.

  • In January 2019 SAP announced its partnership with Kronos’ cloud-based Workforce solutions and its SuccessFactors Time and Attendance solution. SAP highlighted that delivered value would go beyond correctly capturing time worked and accurate payroll to include work-life balance achieved through the simplification and expedition of the management of Time and Attendance for all stakeholders.
  • In April 2019 Ceridian expanded its world footprint with the launch of its Dayforce Payroll as a complement to its suite of WMS products for Australian companies.

Said Nathan Reynolds, managing director of Ceridian Australia: “The world of work is changing at a rapid pace, with the modern workplace becoming more focused on delivering an exceptional employee experience across borders and geographies.”

Our Take

The market consolidation of key software applications, along with the partnerships of world leaders has elevated the space WMS holds, and focused attention on the overall organizational value and benefits these solutions provide.

This focus will drive organizations, intent on creating an enriched environment where the systems supporting an employee’s employment experience match the skills and time they bring to work each day, to assess how their current WMS solutions stack up against leading world standards.
