Demo Days Recap – April 17, 2013

The fourth installment of the Demo Days series was held on April 17th at the Alumni and Advancement Center Auditorium from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm.  A crowd of over 90 University community members took part in the live demonstration of Workday’s functionality while 50 more attendees joined the event using the WebEx option.  An in-depth focus on Workday Business Processes was demonstrated by Michael Bonanno, Accounts Payable Business Analyst.  Mike showed how Workday can be used to potentially replace the current RFP process.  The focus and theme of the presentation was on auditability and was immediately followed by an active Question and Answer session.  It was great to see so many people and questions; your input will assist the growth and success of the UR Financials project!
