In 2019, LMU embarked on a multi-year project entitled Propel LMU, to transform the software and processes used by the university’s HR and financial systems. The existing software has been in use since 1998, and will be phased out in 2020. As a result, two cross-sectional committees of LMU administrative and academic leaders were convened to guide the selection and implementation of a replacement system – one that suitably reflects LMU’s unique position as a top university, surrounded by the creative technological innovation of Silicon Beach.
After a thorough RFP evaluation the two committees selected Workday, the industry’s premiere cloud-based ERP system, to manage LMU’s HR and financial management needs.
The 2020 calendar year will see the wide-spread, comprehensive design and testing of a system custom-built to fulfill LMU’s unique objectives. Consultation will come from every corner of the LMU community, including a diverse team of “architects” representing the varied schools, departments, and offices of our three campuses, as well as broad input from the campus community as a whole.
Workday implementation will be completed in June 2021.
