Collaborative Solutions announced that Arch Coal has deployed Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), which includes talent management and succession planning, and Workday Payroll.
The company also developed over 25 integrations to third party systems as part of Arch Coal's Workday deployment project. Workday is a leading provider of enterprise cloud applications for human resources and finance.
Prior to Workday, Arch Coal and its subsidiaries relied on software that was no longer supported by its previous technology provider and did not sufficiently meet its business needs. With Workday, Arch Coal increased the degree of standardisation among its HR and payroll policies, practices, and service delivery and has one system of record to manage all of its HR functions. Now, Arch Coal's end-users have efficient, self-service access to the data they need across its subsidiaries' mines and facilities located across nine states.
Arch Coal chose Collaborative Solutions to lead its Workday deployment based on Collaborative Solutions' superior Workday deployment experience and track record of on-time and on-budget project performance. The Arch Coal and Collaborative Solutions team faced challenges, particularly around Arch Coal's needs and complexities regarding payroll. However, with Collaborative Solutions' Workday expertise and the team's shared commitment, Arch Coal's first payroll run on Workday was successful and the project was completed within the prescribed budget.
"The partnership between Arch Coal and Collaborative Solutions was ideal. We were one team from start to finish with our goals and priorities aligned and in sync, making us a successful and cohesive team," commented Carroll Ross, Collaborative Solutions CEO.
