Workday Sees Continued Momentum in the Netherlands As Customers Seek to Unlock the Power of Responsible AI

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, April 11, 2024Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ: WDAY), a leading provider of solutions to help organisations manage their people and money, today announced continued momentum in its Dutch market. This helped contribute to strong global growth in Workday’s latest fiscal year and demonstrates the resilience and relevance of its platform with responsible AI and relentless innovation at the forefront. 

The momentum in the region comes as Dutch businesses are increasingly eager to unlock the transformative power of AI but require a trusted and responsible partner like Workday to help them reach their goals, while keeping people at the heart of everything they do.

Organisations of all sizes and from across diverse industries, including Hyva, Total Specific Solutions, Miro, and many more, selected the Workday platform built with AI at the core  in the past year to help drive efficiencies, digitise manual processes, and move forever forward through continuous change.

“We’ve seen great success in the Dutch region over this past year and even surpassed $1billion in annual recurring revenue in EMEA, and we did it by remaining committed to innovation, by employing our responsible AI and ML, and by delivering an unparalleled customer experience,” said Hette Mollema, vice president, Benelux, Workday. “Dutch companies are going through a constant transformation journey, especially in finance, and they need cutting-edge technology. Workday provides another starting point in the finance transformation journey for companies hoping to streamline their financial processes.”

Workday has more than 2,100 customers headquartered in Europe, including Dutch companies such as Basic-Fit, BDR Thermea, Inter IKEA, and Randstad.

“In a fast changing world, technology is a key asset for companies to maintain the standards that the business needs. Having the right technology we can also empower our people to make the most of their journey everyday and feel completely integrated to the business needs,” says Prashant Pai, Workday Platform Manager, Inter IKEA. “Successfully optimising processes and delivering solutions throughout the organization requires a foundation built upon data-rich insights.”
