PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 --  Workday, Inc. (NYSE:
WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for human resources
and finance, today announced that TripAdvisor(R), the world's largest
travel site, deployed Workday Financial Management. TripAdvisor has
leveraged the unified financial management applications to allow for
more visibility into operations, greater agility to respond to rapid
growth, and better insights and analysis to deliver more value back
to the business.  
TripAdvisor serves 60 million unique monthly visitors with more than
75 million reviews and opinions from travelers around the world. With
its rapid pace of development and commitment to regularly improving
experiences for its customers, TripAdvisor needed a solution that
could match its dynamic company growth. Workday's modern financial
applications have given TripAdvisor the insights, speed, control, and
ease of use it needs to operate the world's largest travel website.  
Benefits of Taking Finances to Cloud 
 With the launch of Workday
Financial Management and Workday Human Capital Management (HCM),
TripAdvisor now benefits from one global, unified system for HR and
finance. Further, since its launch of Workday Financial Management,
TripAdvisor already benefited from two of the three annual updates
that Workday delivers to all customers to provide the very latest
application and product innovations.
