Ceridian Fuels International Growth With Acquisition of Excelity Global

Ceridian, a global payroll provider, announced it would acquire Singapore-based Excelity Global, an Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) region-focused HCM technology and managed services provider that produces approximately 1.2 million pay slips monthly. The move, according to the company, positions Ceridian as one of the largest HCM technology and services providers in the APJ region.

Excelity brings a proprietary cloud technology localized across 13 major countries in APJ, but it also brings a strong managed service offering, expertise, and delivery presence in the region supported by six primary centers, a key differentiator over other firms Ceridian evaluated. Ceridian plans to immediately leverage its global connectors to bring the Dayforce HCM platform and Excelity’s payroll technology together en route to an eventual full integration.
