Podcast: Workday’s Annual True Ups (Audits)


On an annual basis, Workday requires clients to do a true up, to which clients ask, “How come when we do a true up, we have to pay more for overuse, but never get a refund for underuse?” Workday’s pricing, as given in an order form, represents (from their perspective) a minimum annual spend amount for the entire term. Jeff Lazarto, UpperEdge’s Workday practice leader, discusses why Workday has these pricing structures in place and why you are likely to have to pay more for Full-Service Equivalent (FSE) worker counts and SKUs after each true up. For a more in-depth analysis of Workday’s payment structures, download his recent webcast recording: Ask the Experts – Workday Licensing.
