Core HR Software
Ceridian was a public company descended from Control Data Corporation, but was taken private after acquisition in 2007 by two financial organizations. Ceridian acquired the Toronto-based Dayforce in 2012 marking a pivot from a service bureau to a cloud technology platform offering a single application on a single database and one source code. Dayforce has a strong legacy of workforce management, Core HR, payroll, and analytics. Ceridian has been expanding the platform with new recruiting, performance management, and compensation capabilities. In 2015, Ceridian introduced Dayforce Go, which offers a streamlined implementation process for SMBs.
