Give your Workday testing a boost and your teams a break

Test your Workday config to death with less effort

Expand the breadth, depth, quality, and consistency of your testing with fewer people and in less time.

Be confident about compatibility

As an official Workday Select Partner, you can trust that Smart will integrate seamlessly with all of your tenants. Compatibility guaranteed.

Work with a partner, not just a product

Our customers rave about our people. From guidance on testing strategy to product set up, training, and post-live support. Our team stays by your side to make sure you’re successful and get the most out of Smart.

Zero script maintenance

When Workday pushes changes live, so do we — so you can be confident that your tests will always run perfectly on the latest version of Workday.

How It Works

All the configuration, BP flow, and integration testing you’d expect from an automated testing solution, plus some extra special features.

1000s of configuration tests

Run high-volume, consistent and reusable tests that match your unique Workday configuration with just a click.

Workday screenshots of test failures

Troubleshoot tests failures at a glance with screenshots that show you exactly which screen it failed on and the Workday error message it triggered.

Sequenced BP testing

Most BPs aren’t used in isolation, so don’t test them that way. Whether it’s hire-to-fire or the procurement lifecycle, you can test a series of related processes with ease.

Meticulous security testing

Safeguard personal data and the integrity of process controls by checking that users can’t see or do anything they shouldn’t, right down to related actions and field level permissions. Watch the webinar.

Posting rules testing

Continuously verify that costs are being routed to the right ledgers to spare your financial team the agony of backtracking and correcting mistakes.

Full test history

Retrieve every test ever run with details on who ran it, when and what the result was.
