and efficiency of its financial processes to better meet the needs of

of accounts, while still maintaining rich, multi-dimensional
analysis.

include:  


 
--  Real-time business insights to enable stronger decision-making across
    the organization from detailed business transactions captured with
    Worktags.
--  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 for improved operational efficiencies.
--  Built-in mobile access across tablet and smartphone devices empowering
    the organization with greater accessibility to business information
    and insights.
--  A unified system with Workday HCM, delivering 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.

  
J.B. Hunt also
 intends to significantly reduce IT complexity and costs
by gaining Workday's cloud-based delivery model, which includes
regular updates delivered three times a year over a matter of days,
to ensure the company is current on the latest application and
technology innovations. J.B. Hunt will no longer need to manage
multiple versions of software and implementations, because Workday is
one code line that ensures every customer is on the latest version of
the products.
