Bottom Line: All-in-one cloud based HCM with focus on time and attendance.

Product Overview

Ceridian offers solutions specifically tailored to company size, roles, industry, and location. For the purpose of our review, we will focus on the Dayforce HCM solution.

Dayforce HCM is a cloud-based, end-to-end solution that offer all aspects of the HR process from recruiting and hiring employees to maintaining payroll/time & attendance to managing company benefits. It has everything in one place so users, depending on their roles, can access the specific functionality that pertains to them. Companies won’t have to worry about accessing and maintaining multiple platforms.

Benefits of Dayforce HCM include consolidated processes and reduced time-consuming tasks for HR and payroll – all of the information on an employee is in one place. Employees also benefit as they can access their personnel information (such as vacation and sick time) from a desktop or mobile device. Another benefit is that it is deployed via SaaS, so there is no additional hardware to purchase and maintain.


Ceridian Dayforce HCM has several features. However, we want to point out one feature called Dayforce Touch. Dayforce Touch is a time & attendance system that allows employees to punch in and out via a tablet-based clock. It is an alternate feature to a traditional time clock. This feature helps in reducing incidents of “buddy punching” (where an employee punches in and out for another employee) and complying with federal and state labor laws. Employees can review their schedule and hours worked, as well as request time off. Managers can check on the work schedule and employee availability. Dayforce Touch includes different ways of employee recognition, such as PIN, bar code, and facial recognition technology.

Additional Ceridian Dayforce HCM solutions include Payroll, Dayforce Wallet, Talent Management, Workforce Management, and Employee Benefits Management.
