Ceridian (NYSE: CDAY; TSX: CDAY), a global human capital management (HCM) technology company, revealed the latest enhancements to Dayforce, its flagship cloud software. Extending the functionality and breadth of the Dayforce platform, these new product features – including Dayforce Benefits Decision Support, Dayforce Assistant, and Dayforce On-Demand Pay – reinforce Ceridian’s commitment to continuous innovation.

“From day one, we’ve seen the power our technology has had on employees and our customers’ cultures, fueling us to keep pushing the envelope,” said Erik Zimmer, Chief Strategy Officer, Ceridian. “Our approach has always been to simplify the work environment for our customers and their employees. Given the importance of benefits in our day-to-day lives, employees need data and analytics to empower them to make smart choices. We see the addition of Dayforce Benefits Decision Support as one more tool for their convenience.”

Research shows that employees expect their employers to provide health and financial wellness support, yet 35 percent of U.S. workers have little to no understanding of their health insurance coverage.[1] With Dayforce Benefits Decision Support, customers can now provide their employees with additional support to help them confidently make more informed choices when selecting their benefits.

Employees receive recommendations on the most cost-effective benefits and best-fit plans to match their needs, based upon an employee’s responses to a few straightforward questions. This saves employers money, while freeing up time for administrators to focus on strategic priorities.

Dayforce Benefits Decision Support, which follows Ceridian’s acquisition of Clearview Logix announced in March 2019, is one of several Dayforce product features launched today. The introduction of Dayforce Assistant enables employees to conveniently manage their work-life activities with a simple voice or chat command. Dayforce On-Demand Pay provides organizations with more choice over how and when to pay their employees – it’s the first pay solution of its kind offered within a complete HCM solution, transforming how people are paid.

“With the introduction of Dayforce Benefits Decision Support, Dayforce Assistant, and Dayforce On-Demand Pay, Ceridian is delivering a richer experience to its customers and their employees,” said Ian Campbell, CEO Nucleus Research. “Once again, Ceridian is living up to its commitment to invest in innovations that put the employee first and reimagine the entire employee experience.”
