Edinburgh, UK – 17th April 2023 – Dayshape, an innovative, market-leading resource management software solution, today announced a partnership with Workday, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, to deliver strategic benefits to professional services firms.
Through this partnership, Dayshape’s integration with Workday is intended to help Workday customers dive further into the specifics and granularity of resource management; resulting in better planning, more precise estimates, and improved performance management and profitability. In addition, the two companies will develop packaged solutions, the first of which is expected to be available later this year, to help customers leverage out-of-the-box configurations and templates to extend and accelerate the value of their Workday investment.
Dayshape’s AI-powered scheduling provides unparalleled automation when it comes to resource planning and management at scale. Guided by a firm’s strategic objectives, it produces – and maintains – optimal resource plans no matter how complex the scheduling needs or how much the plan gets disrupted. Dayshape considers criteria such as margin, utilisation, capacity, skills/qualifications, and employee preferences, transforming resource management from an admin task to a strategic advantage.
Through the integration and upcoming packaged solutions, the uniqueness of Dayshape can be brought into Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), Workday Financial Management, and Workday Professional Services Automation, with resources, skills, projects, billing, and planning information from Workday informing the resource plans and forecasts created by Dayshape.
Andrew Bone, Dayshape CEO and Co-Founder, said, “My time as a Big Four accountant being ‘resource managed’ inspired the creation of Dayshape and our people-centric approach. A critical aspect of this partnership with Workday is how well our company cultures and values align; this shared ethos will underpin how we work together to continue to enable objective scheduling decision-making and accurate forecasting for our customers.”
Justin Joseph, Senior Director of Product Strategy at Workday, said, “Professional services firms have to look at the profitability and health of each project, as well as their processes to automate resourcing and increase utilisation. By bringing Dayshape in as a Workday Software Partner, Workday intends to accelerate and scale the value we bring to joint customers and enable us to provide a stronger end-to-end, intelligent resource management solution for the professional services industry.”
