Workday Commercial Advisory Services
Maximize the Value You Receive from Your Workday Investment
Workday is a leader in the cloud HCM space and is growing in Finance and other applications. With a reported 98% customer satisfaction rate, Workday knows they can price their cloud subscriptions at a premium. Like most major cloud vendors, they are also reluctant to provide potential and current customers with a sufficient level of price transparency. Workday frequently bundles, prices, and discounts its products in a unique way that makes it particularly challenging to understand just how competitive your deal is.
We empower you with the tools and data you need to gain greater transparency and predictability in your Workday agreement. In addition to providing up-to-date pricing and discounting benchmarks, we design customer-specific negotiation strategies to manufacture leverage so you can achieve highly competitive pricing and commercial terms with built-in flexibility and price protections.

Protect Your Organization from Hidden Downstream Costs
Many Workday customers focus too heavily on obtaining great initial pricing which can lead to unbudgeted downstream costs. We take a holistic approach to your Workday relationship across a multitude of commercial issues and always consider the long-term.
Our extensive knowledge of Workday’s decision-making process enables us to curate a negotiation strategy and communication approach that influences Workday’s natural process to achieve favorable outcomes. We focus on your overall relationship with Workday and establishing senior and executive-level relationships to further mitigate downstream risks.
Do you worry about paying for cloud subscriptions during implementation before you’re able to actually use the solution? You aren’t alone. We’ll help you negotiate price-phased payment structures that better align with value realization and provide the flexibility to adjust usage quantities without suffering price increases.
