Ceridian, a fast-growing global human capital management technology company, today announced that Dayforce has been named the overall leader in Nucleus Research’s Workforce Management Value Matrix. Nucleus compared 15 providers and determined that Dayforce is again outpacing the competition in terms of usability and functionality.

“We’re thrilled Nucleus Research recognizes Dayforce for offering the most workforce management (WFM) functionality and usability found on a single application, surpassing our competitors for the fourth straight year,” said David Ossip, Chairman and CEO, Ceridian. “We answered a need in the market for improved workflow by building a single platform for time and pay, to enable real-time, continuous calculation of net pay, immediately upon entry of time data. Today, more than 3,000 Dayforce customers rely on our technology to engage their people, simplify processes, and work smarter.”

“With Dayforce, Ceridian provides full-breadth WFM on a single application producing a single dataset governed by a single rules engine,” said Brent Skinner, Principal Analyst at Nucleus Research and author of the report. “This results in a solution that is just plain better than others for most user scenarios and has led Nucleus to position Ceridian as the pre-eminent Leader for a longtime running, and this year is no different. Nucleus’ analysis of user cases continues to unearth exceptional ROI for Dayforce as well. This is unsurprising. Ceridian’s progress with Dayforce has been impressive, reflected in the vendor’s perennial ability to defend its turf in the WFM Value Matrix.”

Nucleus emphasizes that Ceridian continues to innovate the Dayforce product, enhancing existing features in the areas of scheduling, global payroll and global compliance. Nucleus also highlights an intuitive mobile experience as a key driver of productivity gains and satisfaction for Dayforce customers.
