After careful consideration the team chose to clone a copy of the Workday tenant currently in deployment which would simplify the approach. This enabled White Cap to proceed from the point of cloning to configure the deployment for their needs — and proceed faster — while also allowing the parent company to continue their own deployment path. Post-clone, Alight completed the deployment for both organizations in parallel.
Immediately after deploying Workday for the White Cap population, the CSG population was converted into the White Cap tenant concurrent with the deployment of several additional Workday SKUs.
By partnering with Alight to deploy Workday, White Cap now has a single system of truth for their entire global workforce and the core foundation for success both now and long term. Not only did the project help to drive efficiencies through standardization and simplification, but the timely delivery also meant White Cap could complete the TSAs on time without the need for extension, avoiding over $100k of costs.
