Luxury resort operator Soneva chose Workday to digitally transform its finance operations and capabilities. 

The partnership with Workday will support Soneva in realising its business strategy and goals, as it looks to pivot digitally to tap growth opportunities and gain greater agility and efficiency in today’s cloud-first operating environment.

Soneva currently has four properties it operates across Thailand and the Maldives. With technology becoming an integral part of the way that people travel, live, and work today, Soneva has plans to turn its finance operations to fully remote through leveraging the right technology tools and systems. 

Soneva will then be better prepared and well-positioned to stay ahead of changes in the evolving business and industry environment.

Through the deployment of Workday’s Financial Management, Soneva will fully transition its finance operations to the cloud, enabling the business to boost efficiency and make the right decisions with actionable insights to mitigate uncertainty amid a dynamic business landscape. 

With the power of intelligent automation and augmented analytics, Soneva can largely eradicate manual, tedious processes, and instead focus time and resources on strategic value-adding tasks such as data analysis and smarter, insight-driven business decisions.

“As travel steadily restarts and we continue to expand our operations and reach across the globe, we need a technology partner who can scale and grow with us,” said Quentin Morice, corporate director of finance at Soneva.

“With Workday, we look forward to simplifying and automating our accounting and finance workflows, and harness real-time actionable insights that will empower the business and allow us to achieve sustainable growth in the long-term,” said Morice.

Sandeep Sharma, Workday president of Asia, said that amid the uncertainties of tomorrow, one thing is for certain – technology remains a key imperative for success, and forward-looking organisations need to ride on the digital disruption wave to stay relevant and accelerate their growth.
