Project One Introduces Workday in New Video Series

The University of Arkansas System recently released the first video in a series to introduce the new ERP solution Workday, being implemented at 21 institutions systemwide in the summer of 2020. Workday is a cloud-based service that will replace core administrative systems for finance, human capital management (human resources) and payroll.

Workday features include enhanced security, single sign-on and easy access from any device. Employees will benefit from more insight into the progress of a business process, as well as the ability to get accurate, real-time information at the click of a button.

Systemwide project information, including timelines, are available at Subscribe to the Project One newsletter.

A local Workday project website is available at, where employees can subscribe to a monthly newsletter highlighting activities specific to the Fayetteville campus.
