Client Success Story

Cleveland Metropolitan School District
Navigator (now Avaap) assisted Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) with the selection of Workday HCM and Financials for the district, and is in the process of helping them implement the system.

“Navigator Management Partners helped us as we determined the right solution for our organization. They were objective and tool agnostic, allowing us to focus on the solution that best solved our business challenges. Being independent from a specific solution allowed us to ensure our selected software was the best fit for us. Their expertise and proven processes and methodology were instrumental to us.”

Cleveland Metropolitan School District

Our Approach

CMSD contracted Navigator to assist with the selection and implementation of an ERP solution for their district.

A multi-phase effort led to the selection of Workday to replace and expand functionality in human resources, payroll, procurement and finance. The project scope of this selection effort included analyzing RFP responses, system demonstrations, reference calls and negotiating the terms of a best and final offer with Workday. Navigator is helping CMSD transform the school district through the implementation of multiple Workday projects.

The goal for this project is to deploy and successfully manage the change associated with moving to a modern, agile, and unified Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution. The resulting plaform will provide a unified view of the business processes for all schools and administrative offices within the district.
