Making your use of Workday more accurate, secure and successful

From initial business cases and deployments to ongoing testing and lifelong support, our certified specialists work shoulder-to-shoulder with enterprises to ensure their Workday journey is smooth and productive.

Our Story

A division of Kainos, WorkSmart is the largest boutique partner for Workday in Europe, helping organisations across 96 countries safeguard their tenants’ functionality and security.

Our relationship with Workday began in 2011. Drawing on our decades of experience with software development and delivery, our first focus was Workday integrations. Soon we expanded into full deployments, helping companies like Grant Thornton, EasyJet and Travelex deliver Workday to their global workforces.

Behind the scenes, we began working closely with Workday’s software engineers—who reached out to us for help with testing new features and functionality they were developing. So our team began building automated test scripts that would allow our team and theirs to quickly and consistently validate that new functionality was working as expected and that changes to the software hadn’t impacted established features elsewhere. This in-depth experience and the insights it provided were invaluable and gave us an idea: to create software to help Workday clients with their configuration testing. And so in 2014 we launched our Kainos Smart automated testing platform—a tool that handles teams’ most repetitive and time-consuming (but essential) tests, gives your testing a boost, your teams a break, and transforms how you keep your Workday system running smoothly.

Today, Kainos Smart remains the only automated testing tool on the market that is designed exclusive for use with Workday.

It’s been a busy but rewarding few years for our WorkSmart practice, which started in the UK but has since expanded to Benelux, DACH, the US and now the Nordics. Our deployment and post-deployment teams are one of the most respected Workday service partners in the industry and have built a reputation as the go-to team for highly complex Workday deployments and integrations. Kainos Smart remains the only automated testing tool on the market that is designed exclusive for use with Workday and is trusted by over 100 enterprises.

As we continue to grow we can’t wait to see what’s next in store.

About Kainos

“kainós – definition: new in quality (innovation), fresh in development or opportunity – “not found exactly like this before.”

With more than 30 years of innovation under our belt, we’re no longer the new kid on the block. But we still have the same clear focus on working in an agile way to transform how the world lives and works. Today, our ambitions are backed up by a wealth of experience, making us an award-winning digital services and platforms company with around 1,000 staff in offices around the world and a client list of more than 250.

How we got here

Established in 1986 as a joint venture between Fujitsu and Queen’s University Belfast, Kainos has become an international company with offices across the UK, Europe and the USA. And we continue to grow rapidly and fluidly. Throughout, and beyond our industry expertise, our success has been driven by consistently delivering for our customers. We do that by being accessible, collaborative and creative, and by hiring and investing in the best talent. We’ve always hired the best people we can find, given them challenging work they can cut their teeth on, and driven their development.

Today, we’re a leading provider of digital services and platforms. For example, we’re an Exemplar supplier to the UK Government and the leading European implementation partner of Workday. In addition, our Evolve platform is the UK market leader and Kainos Smart is the only automated testing tool available for Workday.
