Ceridian Announces PAQ, Inc. Goes Live with Dayforce Human Capital Management

Ceridian Corporation, a global provider of human capital management solutions, announces that the PAQ, Inc. grocery chain went live on Dayforce Payroll, Workforce Management, Benefits and Human Resources. Through an extensive evaluation process, the company decided on Dayforce HCM due to its ability to deliver better functionality, usability and cost savings over the competition.

“The Dayforce single application saves time and money for our IT team, reduces the number of different vendor systems requiring management, and provides real-time labor insight to our store directors,” says Bill Cote, chief financial officer of PAQ, Inc. “Dayforce delivered the most robust and user-friendly solution available on the market. With an employee base of approximately 1,600 workers across twenty sites, its comprehensive offering was the best choice to match staff to customer traffic, optimizing sales and customer service.”

“Having a single application for time & attendance and payroll is truly ground breaking and incredibly efficient for our store directors and HR/Payroll groups,” notes Cynthia Papadopulos, payroll manager at PAQ, Inc. “We are now able to close out payroll one day earlier than usual. It is very comforting to know that we now have more time for validation and audits if we need them.”

Dayforce HCM transforms human capital management from a collection of disparate systems reliant on fragile interfaces to a single, robust, real-time application with one employee record, one user experience and zero interfaces. Dayforce HCM enhances employee engagement and productivity, while greatly reducing administration time and costs. This single application includes Payroll, Tax, Workforce Management, Benefits, and Human Resources. Dayforce Payroll enables employees to view, edit, fix and preview payroll in real-time, eliminating batch processing and trial run to ensure employees are compensated accurately and on time. Dayforce Workforce Management allows managers to plan and forecast labor requirements, aligns schedules with labor demand, and ensures accurate time tracking and compliance. Dayforce Benefits manages employee enrollment, calculates eligibility and supports an unlimited number of plan types to administer accurate, compliant and accessible benefit plans across the organization. Dayforce HR Self-Service increases manager productivity and employee engagement by allowing mobile access to view and make changes to their status through approved workflows and to manage schedules through shift trading, availability management and time-off requests.

“I am pleased that PAQ, Inc. chose Dayforce and the breadth of benefits it provides to retailers allowing them to save money, improve productivity, engage employees and increase customer satisfaction,” says David Ossip, president of Ceridian Dayforce. “We look forward to working with them to further increase operational excellence and continuing to deliver quality and value for their customers.”

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
