What You Need to Know for Workday Rising 2019

Scout is thrilled to be participating in our first Workday Rising, Workday’s annual customer conference. This year, it will be held in Orlando, October 14-17th, and we couldn’t be more excited to attend. 

With so much to experience during Workday’s multi-day event, we wanted to break it down and highlight what Scout’s looking forward to the most at Workday Rising.

Excitement and Insight from Day One 

It is always inspiring and enlightening to hear Workday CEO and Co-Founder Aneel Bhusri speak and we’re fired up to hear from other keynoter speakers, including Jerry Seinfeld, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Michelle Gielan. 

Come See Scout at Workday Rising – Booth 608

Scout and Workday will celebrate the success of two of our joint customers, on stage Wednesday, October 15th, at 1:00PM. Join media innovator Hulu and the unparalleled Gemological Institute of America (GIA), in an engaging discussion on the Source to Settle process, including how Workday Financial Management will easily integrate into this process. They’ll discuss how to Maximize Your Source-to-Settle Process with Workday Partners

Looking for “s’more” reasons to connect with Hulu and GIA? Stop by the Scout booth (#608) in the exhibitors’ hall any time to get a deeper dive into the integration and we’ll have a sweet surprise waiting for you!

Why Workday and Scout Are Better Together

Workday and Scout partner in three ways to drive greater business impact across the enterprise.

First: What is better than a connector that seamlessly integrates suppliers across Workday and Scout platforms? How about bi-directional connectors that will allow procurement to connect sourcing data to settlement and completion of settlement data? Ultimately, joint Workday and Scout customers will experience true best-of-breed excellence across the entire source-to-pay process

Second: Workday’s procurement team added Scout’s sourcing and supplier engagement platform to its existing technology stack to accelerate their business impact and are seeing incredible results.

Third: Workday Ventures invested in Scout in January 2019. This partnership provides unprecedented value for customers who use Workday and Scout platforms thanks to both companies’ key principles of ease of use and user-centric design.

People Are at the Center of the Workday Rising Journey

One key to the success of Workday and Scout’s integrated partnership is simple: both Workday and Scout put the user at the center of their software. Together, Workday and Scout are revolutionizing legacy processes, making them seamless, collaborative, and more efficient than ever. Scout will be at Workday Rising to introduce its intuitive and easy-to-use procurement software to Workday customers and share how the right technology can be (dare we say it) fun to use!

See for Yourself How Workday and Scout Drive Amazing Business Impact

We’d love to see you, too – come visit Scout in the exhibitors’ hall at booth 608!
