  PLEASANTON, CA, Nov 05 (Marketwire) -- 
Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for
human resources and finance, today announced that J.B. Hunt Transport
Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: JBHT), one of the largest transportation
logistics companies in North America, selected Workday Financial
Management to replace legacy on-premise software. J.B. Hunt also is
deploying Workday HCM and will benefit from a single, unified system for
HR and finance.

    With a broad customer base that includes several Fortune 500 companies,
J.B. Hunt needed a modern financial management system that could replace
legacy technology and help the company continue its strong growth.
Workday plans to help J.B. Hunt enhance the quality and efficiency of its
financial processes to better meet the needs of its business. Key areas
where J.B. Hunt expects to strengthen its financial operations include
greater in-depth reporting and analytics, more efficient close processes,
and streamlining its chart of accounts, while still maintaining rich,
multi-dimensional analysis. 

    Benefits J.B. Hunt expects to gain with Workday Financial Management
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.

where our organization is today and where we are headed in the future,"
