  • Automatic de-provisioning when an employee leaves for security and licensing

“Workato has really been embraced by PeopleOps teams because the hire-to-retire process spans so many apps, systems, and departments. Of course, automating this process improves the workflows of the PeopleOps team as they hire new people and retire others, but more importantly, it also creates a world-class employee experience,” said Vijay Tella, CEO of Workato. “The need to provide an excellent employee experience through automation has been accelerated even more by remote working. That’s why we’re so pleased to receive this 2020 RemoteTech Breakthrough Award in recognition of the innovation and success our users have found using the Workato platform to automate HR processes.”
