Ceridian Launches Expanded HR/Payroll Solutions for Small Businesses

Fully Integrated Solution Is Tailored to Help Small Businesses With Less Than 300 Employees Better Manage Their Payroll, HR Management and Benefits Administration Needs

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 12, 2006 -- Ceridian (, a leader in human resources outsourcing management solutions, announced today that it has launched an expanded and enhanced suite of HR/payroll outsourcing tools that will provide small businesses with less than 300 employees with a single, integrated Web-based solution to administer their payroll, HR management and benefits administration needs.

Long considered one of the top national providers of outsourced HR/payroll services to small businesses, Ceridian has provided small business owners throughout the U.S. with these types of solutions for nearly five decades. Ceridian's new HR/payroll small business offering will enable companies to more easily administer the entire spectrum of their workforce management needs, including: payroll, tax reporting; managing and tracking compensation, benefits, job history and leave accruals; and generating HR and payroll reports. In addition to the benefits employers will receive, their employees will be able to easily access their pay and tax information and manage their personal information and benefits online, via self-service, versus the traditional, slower paper methods.

Hundreds of thousands of small businesses throughout the U.S. already outsource their payroll, HR and benefits administration to a third-party provider such as Ceridian. Two major factors lead them to do this: It alleviates a major administrative burden, thus allowing them to pay closer attention to their business. Secondly, and an increasingly more important reason, it helps ensure that they remain more compliant with the thousands of existing and evolving rules that govern payroll, taxes, employment and benefits, reducing the risk of non-compliance and the serious financial risks that can jeopardize their bottom line.

For companies currently not outsourcing any of their HR/Payroll functions, Ceridian HR/Payroll presents an excellent and easy way to build stronger internal operations. For businesses that already are using Ceridian or another provider for a single or multiple HR/Payroll service, they can easily convert to this expanded offering to gain added functionality and a higher level of integration of their payroll, HR and benefits data.

"We believe we have created the most robust set of HR/Payroll solutions available in the market to the small business owner, in terms of our customer service and how many different tools our clients can easily access through a single application," said Ceridian vice president of small business, Brian Regan. "Whether a company has 20 full-time salaried employees working in a single location or a mix of hundreds of part-time, salaried and hourly employees working in different cities and states, there is no question that our solution can quickly and easily improve their operations and their employee services and benefits programs."

A key element of Ceridian's new small business HR/Payroll offering is the personalized service clients will receive. Each Ceridian Small Business client is assigned a primary account representative who is supported by a small dedicated team, versus having to call into a call center where support is provided by different personnel each time a client calls.

"Small business owners are very busy people facing big challenges day in and day out. We built our service model with that in mind to ensure from the moment they become a client that their questions will be addressed faster and better than vendors with larger, more automated customer service models," said Regan.

Pricing is based on employee population size and scope of services purchased.
