Workday has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Crown Commercial Service (CCS). Under the MOU the CCS will expand the of Workday Cloud technology including Workday Financial Management, Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) and Workday Adaptive Planning.
Carolyn Horne, president, EMEA, Workday commented: “This furthers our strong relationship with CCS to help organisations improve efficiency, simplify operations, and provide better value to UK taxpayers. We work with some of the most innovative businesses and public sector organisations, helping them completely rethink the way they operate. We’re looking forward to helping more government organisations to do the same.”
The CCS is the largest procurement organisation servicing the UK public sector. It aims to provide a leading procurement service that delivered benefits of more than $1 billion in 2020 alone. The new MOU will enable Workday to expand its relationships in UKGov. These already include the Cabinet Office, Department for Education, and UK Research and Innovation.
Philip Orumwense, Commercial Director and Chief Technology Procurement Officer, Crown Commercial Service commented: “This Memorandum of Understanding with Workday will allow the public sector to access a range of discounts on cloud products, supporting the digital transformation of the UK public sector as we build back better.”
Enterprise Times: What does this mean.
Signing an MOU is one thing, turning that into purchases is another. Workday will hope that the MOU will accelerate the growth that it saw in 2020/21 when it gained £4.1 million. To date, the current fiscal year has seen £600,000, but more is likely.
