Ceridian Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

Dayforce is the only HCM platform that provides the ability to continuously calculate employee net pay whenever a time, benefits, or HR record is changed. This unique capability is the foundation upon which Ceridian is building the on-demand pay functionality of Dayforce, which will be available in 2019.

With a growing number of employees experiencing financial challenges and living paycheck to paycheck, companies today are more mindful of how financial pressures impact employee well-being and productivity. Dayforce On-Demand Pay will enable employees to request a payout of their earned wages when needed, in advance of a formal pay period. This will allow companies to help ease the financial pressures of their employees and in so doing, improve employee engagement and productivity. As the war for talent intensifies, particularly among hourly workers, the ability to offer pay on-demand will be an important differentiator in attracting and retaining talent.

Dayforce On-Demand Pay represents a goldmine opportunity for Ceridian to boost wallet share among its installed based and attract new customers.

Ceridian Risks and Challenges

Ceridian’s transformation into a cloud HCM provider in the short time since the Dayforce acquisition has been remarkable. Dayforce has grown at a CAGR of more than 60% since 2012. The company is strategically focused on maintaining this strong growth trajectory through building on its strong North American base to expand globally and by targeting larger enterprise customers. Ceridian’s expansion may entail certain risks given that the entire company needs to scale every aspect of its operation.

Ceridian Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI

Ceridian launched the Dayforce Software Partner Program (DSPP) last year to create a software partner ecosystem aimed at helping organizations easily connect other HCM-related solutions with Dayforce. The DSPP provides Ceridian software partners and application developers access to Ceridian’s APIs, making data available across Dayforce and partner solutions.
