The PGA is an organization of nearly 28,000 professionals dedicated to promoting inclusion in the golf community and introducing more players into the sport through events, tournaments, coaching, and more. To support this mission, the PGA sought to utilize financial and accounting data to identify trends and capture information that could guide the organization’s decision making and future path.
First, the organization needed to overhaul its existing Foundational Data Model (FDM). In its prior state, accounting staff spent a lot of time tracking down data and pulling reports for end users rather than focusing on ways to utilize financial data strategically to make high-level decisions for the organization.
The PGA had made a prior investment in Workday and wanted to use the platform as a tool to analyze financial data, connect to associated resources and tasks, and deliver key insights, such as identifying the most profitable event in a specific year. Additionally, the organization sought to
empower internal groups with access to financial reports
via self-service dashboards that would display information
in easily digestible charts and visuals that are updated in
To achieve these goals, the PGA engaged CapTech to work
shoulder-to-shoulder with its financial, accounting, and
technology staff to establish its Workday platform as a true
system of record— with organized financial data,
established data integrity validations, informational
dashboards, and augmented reporting tools.
