Thomson Reuters moves payroll, HR data to the cloud

Information and financial services giant Thomson Reuters has more than 55,000 employees spread over 100 countries.

While the company recently considered upgrading its existing HR system to accommodate change and growth, it eventually opted instead to use Workday's software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings for human capital management and payroll.

TIPS: How to become SaaS savvy

Workday last week updated its SaaS platform with the release of Workday 14, which features embedded intelligence designed to provide contextual information for business processes. In other words, in-memory data management allows managers to view relevant information all in one place instead of hunting around for contextual data.

For example, if a manager were conducting a performance review using Workday 14, he or she would be able to view the employee's previous performance reviews, current compensation, compensation history and compensation relative to peers all on a single screen.

Workday, based in Pleasanton, Calif., also recently unveiled an iPad app optimized for C-level executives that is integrated into Workday 14.

The new version of Workday includes increased financial management functionality for large, complex multinational corporations such as Thomson Reuters, as well as features geared toward the public sector and higher education.

Among the features in Workday 14 for higher education are union management and membership tracking, custom reporting for Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System requirements and position budget checking.

In a statement announcing Workday 14, company CTO Stan Swete said, "Business users can quickly and easily build and embed custom charts, graphs and tables directly into their business processes without requiring the assistance of IT or having to know Java, SQL or understand all the traditional BI jargon."

Workday has more than 200 clients, including Brown University, McKee Foods, Salesforce.com and The Carlyle Group.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
