ERP Just Got Easier

As a sign of our times, now you can get your ERP system as an iPad application. Workday is a SaaS solution that uses the cloud for enterprise resource planning, and is available for purchase at the iTunes App Store. This system can work on desktop and mobile modes along with this iPad-specific app that offers a more intuitive ERP experience.

The Workdays’ web app provides information on finances, human resources, projects, tasks, and other resources. It also offers built-in actionable analytical tools, a configurable process framework to facilitate customization and dynamic organizational structures.

This ERP system uses a “swirl” interface that reflects the firm’s structure and allows for drill downs on workers’ profile and history. The iPad app offers managers the ability to conduct workforce planning, compensation and other functions through its interactive analytics, which can be viewed through the bigger picture, or on separate-transaction basis. The Workdays also offer a consistent setup for all employees, while accommodating the requirements of external clients.

The Workday application for iPad is free, but users need a Workday account to log in and use the service. The developer indicates that it will continue to update and its app for iPad and mobile web with more useful features soon.
