More A/NZ businesses turning to digital HR systems to navigate new world of work post-COVID
SYDNEY – 17 February 2021 /PRNewswire/ — WorkForce Software, a leading global provider of cloud-based workforce management solutions, announces that it achieved 135% year-on-year growth in software subscription bookings in 2020, its third straight year of positive revenue growth and its most successful in the company’s 20 year history managing payroll, timesheets and employment regulation compliance for some of the world’s most respected organisations. WorkForce Software operates as WFS: A WorkForce Software Company (WFS Australia) in Australia and New Zealand.
Record growth was also achieved in Australia and New Zealand, according to Nick Bailey, Senior Vice President, of Asia Pacific and Japan for WFS Australia. “We’re experiencing a marked uptick in demand for cloud-based HR systems like our WorkForce Suite that are designed to rapidly adapt to changing regulations without requiring new IT investments. For example, when faced with Australia and New Zealand’s new COVID-related regulations, our customers were able to rapidly adapt to support pandemic leave, shift workers juggling homeschooling or caring for elderly parents, government-mandated health and location checks, and to support JobSeeker and JobKeeper payments. Our proven ability to deliver a return on their investment in our solution and make work easy brought relief to our partners and customers.”

WorkForce Software also announces today the addition of a new Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), Sandra Moran, based in the United States with global responsibilities for growing awareness of the WorkForce Suite product brand.

Most recently, Moran was the CMO of LLamasoft, a Coupa Company, and INTTRA and served in global leadership roles at OpenText and Hyperion.
“I am excited to be joining WorkForce Software at a time when there is a clear and compelling need for large organisations to respond more quickly to change than ever before. This is a company that is delivering value to its customers and has a history of innovation that enables us to solve today’s workforce challenges in new ways,” said Moran.
