How We Help You Succeed

Singular focus. Relevant experience.

Our team works solely on Workday implementations. That means every innovation, insight gained and problem solved in past projects is relevant experience we can apply to yours.

Our pedigree is software

Since 1986, our company Kainos has been designing and implementing software for the discerning clients like The Cabinet Office and the Department of Work & Pensions. Software and business transformation are our business.

We make complexity seem simple

Guess who other implementation partners call for support and expertise when projects are extra challenging and complex? We’re particularly renowned for our skills with integrations, testing, Financials, Payroll, Planning Absence and Compensation.

We guide you around the pitfalls

From process analysis and data prep to test planning and defining requirements with vendors, we can advise and guide you away from not just the pitfalls of implementation, but those that can arise post-launch if not addressed early.

Unmatched in regional requirements

Our track record worldwide means nobody understands the regional requirements that can impact deployments better than we do. We’ll make sure you achieve harmonious global processes and the localisation you need without introducing excessive complexity to your configuration.

We treat you like a partner, not a client

For a successful project, you need more than a menu of ‘things we do’ and we need more than a list of your requirements. So we work with you shoulder-to-shoulder to understand your unique challenges. And we share what we’ve seen work well in the past and mistakes to avoid so that together we can make the best decisions possible.

Process, Coverage & Capabilities

As a certified Workday Services Partner, we follow Workday’s delivery methodology on every project.

Project management
Change management

Together we establish consensus on what needs to be done, how it will be done and who will do it–from project scope and resourcing to plans for change management, governance and vendor engagement.

Through a series of workshops we work with you to analyse your current organisational structures, business processes, data, and integrations; advise on ways to reduce complexity while meeting your requirements; agree design decisions; and identify custom reports you’ll require.

Our certified experts start building your Workday tenants and integrations in cycles, first prototyping, then reviewing and testing with you before beginning the next iteration and repeating the process.

Your test team steps through the configuration manually (or using automated testing) to confirm that configuration decisions for business processes, roles and permissions meet your business needs and work as expected. You’ll also test that integrations are interacting with your system as expected and complete user acceptance testing (UAT).

We move your new Workday system to production, end users complete final training, and you migrate the last of your data over.

Connecting Workday Across Your Business Systems

We’ve been working with Workday’s integration technology from its inception, so you can be confident that data will flow in to and out of your Workday configuration accurately.

Workday technologies

Our consultants have implemented solutions based on various Workday technologies—ranging from simple EIB or CloudConnect integrations to complex payroll, XSLT transformations and Workday Studio solutions.

Vast experience with 3rd party integrations

PeopleSoft, SAP, Oracle, ADP, and Cornerstone are just some of the systems and vendors we work with regularly. Through our Architecture Advisory Service we can also help you review your IT architecture, decide on required integration points and their technical design, and advise on use of middleware.

Preparing Your Workforce For the Changes Ahead

A great build makes your Workday system useable. A great change management strategy drive users to the door.


Change management is critical to a successful Workday deployment. Without regional champions, an engaged community and clear guidance, uptake after go-live suffers.

We’ve helped clients in the past build their team’s capability and confidence to act as change agents, plan and build communication and training plans, and strategise ways to promote the vision.
