TripAdvisor Utilizes Workday for Financial Management in the Cloud
World's Largest Travel Website Manages Financial Operations of 30 Sites in 21 Languages With Workday's Financial Management Applications

PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for human resources and finance, today announced that TripAdvisor®, the world's largest travel site, deployed Workday Financial Management. TripAdvisor has leveraged the unified financial management applications to allow for more visibility into operations, greater agility to respond to rapid growth, and better insights and analysis to deliver more value back to the business.

TripAdvisor serves 60 million unique monthly visitors with more than 75 million reviews and opinions from travelers around the world. With its rapid pace of development and commitment to regularly improving experiences for its customers, TripAdvisor needed a solution that could match its dynamic company growth. Workday's modern financial applications have given TripAdvisor the insights, speed, control, and ease of use it needs to operate the world's largest travel website.

Benefits of Taking Finances to Cloud
With the launch of Workday Financial Management and Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), TripAdvisor now benefits from one global, unified system for HR and finance. Further, since its launch of Workday Financial Management, TripAdvisor already benefited from two of the three annual updates that Workday delivers to all customers to provide the very latest application and product innovations.

Additional benefits TripAdvisor gained with Workday Financial Management:

  • Improved employee engagement and reduced training and support costs, resulting from a more intuitive design and user interface that help employees quickly learn the new system and easily access, manage, and input financial information.
  • Faster access to reports and relevant business data with Workday's real-time reporting and analytics that increase efficiencies around business processes and provide executives with critical business insights.
  • Flexible business process framework and an always on audit trail that allows for the creation of workflows and controls relevant and necessary to the business.
  • Better ability to accommodate new business requirements and processes, including M&A activity and re-organizations, without relying on IT support and investment due to Workday's business-driven configurability.
  • Richer contextual insights into the details of the business through business event data captured at the transactional level, creating the ability to develop more robust financial, operational, and management reports.
  • A unified platform with Workday HCM that offers greater visibility into the total workforce, including insights into global headcount, workforce costs, skills and experience, and overall performance.
