Razer and Alight Workday Cloud Deployment

Business drivers

  • Although Razer has more than  1,000 employees, they are very widely dispersed across the globe. The small pockets of population deployed their own local HCM systems including manual Excels. Hence, data collected are in different formats and often outdated/incomplete, making it time-consuming to gather information and difficult to see the big picture and make quick strategic decisions
  • Challenging to ensure global compliance to security and data privacies
  • A global system is required to support the company’s continued hyper growth

 

Solution

  • Selection of a cloud HCM platform to facilitate common HR processes and practices and to provide a consolidated and unified experience throughout Razer
  • Workday was chosen as the platform: Workday Core HCM, Talent, Compensation, Benefits, Time Tracking & Learning

 

Why Alight

  • Alight’s  experience running large regional and global projects

  • Alight’s consultative approach during pre-sales stage to ensure detailed requirements, deliverables and timeline are managed to ensure project success

 

Benefits

  • Workday delivers single source of truth and common user experience across all the Razer countries and entities
  • Minimised maintenance with reduced number of disparate HCM systems
  • Alight was able to adjust and deliver in an aggressive project timeline, which was made even more challenging due to COVID19
  • Alight’s AMS (post go live support) ensures Razer will always be up-to-date with the latest and greatest Workday released functionalities
