J.B. Hunt Selects Workday Financial Management

J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. has chosen Workday Financial Management and HCM to replace its legacy on-premise finance and human-resources software.

Key areas where J.B. Hunt expects to strengthen its financial operations include greater in-depth reporting and analytics, more efficient close processes, and streamlining its chart of accounts, while still maintaining rich, multidimensional analysis.

Expected benefits:

-- Greater control to adapt and accommodate to new business requirements and processes, while reducing the level of IT support.

-- A consumer-driven, intuitive user interface that enables finance operations to better manage information and extract insights with minimal training.

-- Built-in mobile access across tablet and smartphone devices.

-- Greater visibility into the total workforce, including both full-time and contingent labor, and better insight into global headcount, workforce costs, skills and experience, and overall performance.

Workday's delivery model is cloud-based.
