Dayforce HCM Software: A Closer Look

Dayforce is a cloud-based people platform for Payroll, Human Resources, Talent Management, Document Management, and Analytics. 

As a single application, Dayforce provides your organisation with access to real-time data and results from all domains of HCM. 

You can find and hire the right people, create schedules that support work-life balance, manage your employee development, process pay and administer benefits, all while monitoring compliance throughout the employee life cycle.

Dayforce transforms HCM from a collection of disparate systems reliant on fragile interfaces to a single, robust, real-time application. 

By providing  a single application for all your HCM needs, Dayforce eliminates the pain caused by disconnected applications. With one employee record and one rules engine, all transactions made anywhere within the application flow seamlessly across all functional areas in real-time, eliminating the need for duplicate data entry, manual workarounds, and batch processes.

With a single user-experience, your organisation can achieve reduced training time, quicker user adoption, and a faster return on investment.

Dayforce tailors its solutions to meet the unique needs of businesses across sizes and sectors. 

For large enterprises with over 12,000 employees, Dayforce streamlines payroll, mitigates risk, and ensures operational confidence. Mid-sized organisations with 1,000 to 12,000 employees benefit from a scalable platform that elevates people operations. Smaller businesses, housing 100 to 1,000 employees, gain tools to pay, schedule, train, and empower their workforce effectively. 

Across industries - from Retail and Hospitality to Manufacturing, Healthcare, Financial Services, the Public Sector, Professional Services, and Sports and Entertainment - Dayforce delivers customised solutions, optimising workforce management and operational efficiency tailored to the specific challenges and opportunities of each sector.

Frequently Asked Questions

At BDO Ireland, we know and understand business, drawing on the experience of our accounting, auditing, tax, and consulting experts, locally and around the world. The BDO difference is that our Senior-led teams are always business-outcome focussed and dedicated to delivering the best solution to propel your business forward.

Our Dayforce services include implementation, integration, and training for businesses of all sizes. We offer personalised guidance, tailored solutions, and ongoing support.

Dayforce is particularly well-suited for mid to large-range companies due to its scalability and extensive capabilities. Whether you're a growing enterprise or an established organisation, Dayforce can adapt to your evolving needs, supporting your HR operations at every step.

One of the key advantages of Dayforce is its modular implementation approach. Companies can choose the modules that best align with their priorities and requirements. While payroll is the core module, organisations can customise their implementation by selecting additional modules based on their specific needs.

When implementing, businesses often decide between rolling out the entire suite at once or adopting a phased approach. While a full-suite implementation offers comprehensive functionality from the outset, the phased implementation allows for a more gradual transition, reducing the risk of disruption and facilitating smoother adoption.

The implementation of Dayforce, a widely used human capital management software, varies in duration. It typically spans from 12 to 20 weeks. The time frame depends largely on factors like company size and data complexity. For larger organisations with extensive data systems, the implementation might take longer.

To plan effectively, it's important to consider the key factors that impact the implementation timeline, like:

  • Company size & structure
  • Complexity of Data Conversion
  • State of Data Cleanliness
  • System Configuration requirements
  • Employee training and System adoption
  • Technical integration complexity
  • Testing and resolving issues
  • Project Management and communication efficiency

BDO's Dayforce implementation process is structured around clear stages, each designed to ensure thoroughness and alignment with your business goals. 

  • Initially, we engage in planning and discovery to understand your specific needs. 
  • Following this, we move into the configuration and customisation phase, tailoring Dayforce to fit your operational requirements. 
  • Next, we focus on data migration and system integrations, ensuring seamless connectivity with your existing infrastructure. 
  • Training and user adoption are critical next steps, where we empower your team to leverage Dayforce effectively. 
  • Finally, we provide ongoing support and optimisation services, ensuring your HCM system continues to deliver value and adapt to your business's evolving needs.
BDO’s objective position made them a key asset and partner to our project from the outset. [They supported us] from clearly identifying our needs, through vendor selection, to project & change delivery. They challenge all aspects of the project – the system, implementation, and also the process and people aspects – which can be missed. BDO provided expertise, experience, and knowledge that we would only have acquired too late in the project and therefore they ensured it was a successful and critically now a live project rather than a project still planning on going live.
