PSK Supermarkets Wins Technology ROI Award From Nucleus Research

Grocery Retailer Shows Significant Return On Investment With Dayforce Human Capital Management

Ceridian News FlashMinneapolis, MN – July 20, 2015 – Ceridian announces that PSK Supermarkets is a 2015 recipient of a Technology ROI Award from Nucleus Research for its implementation of Dayforce Human Capital Management.The awards recognize the top 10 technology deployments each year based on their bottom-line financial return on investment (ROI).

“The Tech ROI Awards honor the 10 best IT implementations in the industry based on the best metric available to prove value -- ROI. This is a joint effort, showcasing both savvy implementations by the winning companies and also the value of the vendor solutions they deployed,” says Ian Campbell, CEO of Nucleus Research.

The Technology ROI awards demonstrate strong best practices for optimizing business results while maximizing value. For PSK Supermarkets this meant automating many manual processes involved with timekeeping, scheduling, labor costs optimization and payroll reporting. The implementation of Dayforce HCM resulted in a 1688% ROI and full project payback within 1.2 months time as determined by Nucleus Research.

“HCM continues to be a category that delivers significant returns, with companies receiving $9.13 for every dollar spent,” says Brent Skinner, principal analyst at Nucleus Research. “This project shows how companies can leverage the capabilities of a solution like Ceridian’s to deliver great ROI.”

“It is an honor to be recognized for our commitment to ROI through human capital management technology while at the same time making Foodtown a great place to work,” says Noah Katz, co-president of PSK Supermarkets, Foodtown. “As a supermarket retailer, we operate on thin margins so it is important to have the right amount of labor to deliver an excellent customer experience while at the same time not overspending. With Dayforce HCM we can accurately apply our pay rules to make sure our workforce is scheduled correctly and paid accurately. Then during the pay week as needs fluctuate, we provide our managers visibility into costs and variances to plan in real-time during the pay period so they can proactively manage labor costs which significantly impacts our bottom line.”

Dayforce HCM is a SaaS solution for Payroll, Benefits, Workforce Management, Human Resources, Talent Management, Document Management, and Analytics. Dayforce provides organizations with access to real-time data and results across all domains of HCM with one employee record, one user experience and no interfaces.
