[Athen] Experience with HR Vendors

WGBH uses Workday. There is an accessible version, which took some intervention to activate for our installation. It provides a link to a simplified version which is good enough for an employee using JAWS to complete his timesheet. The "regular" version is not completely terrible, I am told, but the accessible version is more usable. I don't know how good access to features outside of the timesheet is.

I hope this is helpful.

Subject: [Athen] Experience with HR Vendors

Good afternoon,

Please accept my apologies for cross-posting ... I'm hoping to grab as much experience/information as possible.

The University of Virginia is currently reviewing vendors to expand or replace our HR technology solution. The vendors/products that have responded to our RFI and are being considered are:

* Workday
* Oracle
* SAP/SuccessFactors

We have asked for a laundry list of documentation (e.g. VPAT, Accessibility Statement, how the product was tested, gap coverage) but the response has been underwhelming.

Have any of you had experience with, reviewed, or tested any of these products as to their compliance with 508 and/or WCAG 2.0 Level AA and/or general usability?

Thank you for any information you can provide,
